Inside EastEnders’ Shona McGarty’s wild girls trip to Ibiza after she goes public with co star Max Bowden


EASTENDERS’ Shona McGarty is having the time of her life on a wild girls’ holiday in Ibiza, days after confirming her romance with co-star Max Bowden.

The Whitney Dean actress is letting her hair down away from the drama of Albert Square, soaking up the sun by day and partying by night.

Shona’s friend twerked in their hotel room

Giving fans a glimpse into the group’s antics on her Instagram story, Shona filmed herself lounging by the pool and was seen jumping into the pool.

She strutted her stuff on the beach and recorded her cheeky pal twerking in their hotel room.

Before jetting to the White Isle, Shona appeared to go Instagram official with Max.

The actress had previously remained silent on HOAR’s exclusive story about the pair’s relationship.

However, she posted a series of pictures of them looking close together at a music festival over the weekend.

It was the first time the pair have posed together in public.

They sat next to each other at the British Soap Awards in June, but decided against walking the red carpet together.

The new pics come after Max’s ex-lover, insurance exec Roisin Buckle, recently revealed they were having a baby boy.

She is due to give birth in just two week’s time.

The former couple vowed to raise the child together, despite their split, but a friend of Roisin’s revealed she felt “humiliated and disrespected” when she learned of her ex’s closeness to his fellow cast member.

However, last month Roisin spoke out – claiming Max had missed key scans for the baby and hadn’t spoken to her in nearly two months.

She told how she was devastated to discover he had moved on with Shona just weeks after they took a break.

The 37-year-old said: “At the time, I was all over the place, crying, not being able to look at a future without him by my side.

“There was hope we may co-parent but I haven’t heard from him in about six weeks now so I’m not really sure where that stands.

“The door is open and I would never stop him seeing his son so hopefully we hear from him.”

It is understood that Max, 27, has since pledged to financially support their child.

Shona split from electrician fiancé Ryan Harris in January, claiming the separation was “very amicable”.
