14th August 2022

EastEndersco-starsShona McGartyand Max Bowden have been at the centre of plenty of romance rumours recently.

Shona, 30, who plays Whitney Dean in the soap and 27 year old Max, who plays Ben Mitchell, werereportedly “inseparable” earlier this yearand since then there’s been reports the pair are “smitten”.

Over the weekend the duo fuelled romance rumours further when they joined pals to attend House & Classics Festival in Hertfordshire, with actress Shona sharing a series of photos and videos from the day.

The pictures included the pair posing for a photo, with Max hooking his arm around Shona's shoulders as he held a cigarette while she cheekily stuck her tongue out.

The pair also enjoyed dancing together at the festival, with Max donning matching tropical shorts and shirt while Shona glittered in a crop top and high-waisted green trousers.

Neither have yet addressed the romance rumours, though this is the first time that they have taken photos together in public.

OK! has contacted representatives for further comment.

Speaking about Max and Shona's alleged romance, a source previously told The Sun: “They spend as much time together as they can.

“Most nights or mornings Max is seen entering or leaving Shona’s home. He wears the same clothes most days.

“They have tried to keep their relationship a secret and they drive into the EastEnders set separately. But anybody who sees them together can see how they feel about each other.”

Shona has been single since splitting from her electrician fiancé Ryan Harris in January 2020.

Earlier this year, it was reported Max's former partner Roisin Buckle is pregnant with their first child, despite the pair having gone their separate ways earlier this year.

In a report from The Sun, it was said that the pair remain on good terms and will work together to raise the baby.

A source said that it just "simply did not work out" but that they are "determined to co-parent the tot and are supporting each other."

The source added: "Those who know Max and Roisin could not be more excited".
