EastEnders’ Ben actor Max Bowden’s previous co-star fling and on-set romance

EastEnders actor Max Bowden, 27, is rumoured to be dating Whitney Dean actress Shona McGarty, 30.

Ben, who’s played the BBC soap’s Ben Mitchell since 2019, was previously in a relationship with his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Roisin Buckle, before he allegedly embarked on a relationship with co-star Shona.

It isn’t the first time the soap actor who’s starred in Waterloo Road, Casualty and Doctors, has dated a colleague, reports Daily Mirror.

The mum-to-be Roisin was “heartbroken” when photos of the actor leaving Shona’s house surfaced earlier this month, following their recent split.

A source explained to The Sun : “It has been dreadful for Roisin, she feels humiliated and disrespected. She is expecting a baby and although she is a strong woman, she feels very let down.”

They added: “She never expected Max to move on so quickly. She believed they were on a break, taking time out of their relationship to sort out their differences.”

The Ben Mitchell actor was previously in a long-term relationship with Danielle McCarney, who he met on the set of EastEnders when she was a show-runner.

The actor had described her as “the most beautiful woman on the planet” in a lovely post to wish her a happy birthday.

Sadly, it was revealed the pair had amicably split up in June 2021 after two years together.

Their split happened just a month after Max’s EastEnders co-star Jessie Wallace, who plays Kat Mitchell, left a sexually explicit message on his Instagram post.

Max shared an old snap of the former couple from the NTAs two years before and Jessie, 50, jokingly wrote: “Remember… if you need a m***e to cry on…. I’m yer gal,” followed by a winking emoji.

Before dating colleague Danielle, Max was in a relationship with insurance executive Roisin before splitting in March.

In a photo of the pair posted on his Instagram in February this year, Max wrote: “The course of true love never did run smooth” – William Shakespeare.

In April this year, it was announced that Roisin and Max were expecting their first child together and were determined to co-parent their baby together.
