‘She’s in a real EastEnders plot’: Soap star Max Bowden’s pregnant ex-girlfriend feels ‘humiliated and disrespected’ by his relationship with co-star Shona McGarty
Soap star Max Bowden’s pregnant ex-girlfriend has been ‘humiliated and disrespected’ by his new relationship with co-star Shona McGarty.
Roisin Buckle, 37, who is expecting her first child with Max, told her “tough few weeks” when she shared some glowing photos of her growing baby bump on Instagram on Friday.
The mother-to-be was “heartbroken” when pictures of the actor leaving Shona’s house surfaced earlier this month, following their recent split.

In addition to snaps from a maternity photo shoot, Roisin wrote: “It’s been a rough few weeks but I feel so lucky to have so many supportive friends and family around me.”
A source explained to The sun: ‘It has been terrible for Roisin, she feels humiliated and disrespected. She is expecting a baby and although she is a strong woman, she feels very let down.
“She never expected Max to move on so quickly. She believed they were taking a break and taking time out of their relationship to resolve their differences.”

They continued, “During this time, she didn’t think he had anything to do with anyone else. She’s always been such a private person and now feels like she’s at the center of a real EastEnders conspiracy.”
The representatives of Roisin and Max have been approached by MailOnline for comment.
Max, who plays Ben Mitchell, and Roisin confirmed their romance last October – five months after they started dating. During their romance, the couple largely stayed out of the limelight.

It comes after sources claimed Shona and Max had looked “really cozy” on set lately, but it was said they weren’t “officially dating.”
In photos obtained by The Sun, Max was seen leaving the Hertfordshire property, with sources claiming the pair have “grown together”.
Bystanders saw Max drive into Shona’s street in his black BMW and enter through a wooden gate at the back of her house.
Later in the evening, Shona came to the garden gate to pick up a takeaway from a delivery person.
