A few months after hinting that she was in the midst of a new romance, EastEnders actress Shona McGarty published a snapshot of herself with her lover.
The actress, who portrays Whitney Dean in the BBC serial, initially acknowledged that she was considering a new romance in June when she said she had just begun “speaking to someone” at the British serial Awards.
She then followed this up in August with two mysterious Instagram postings. She included some lines about love being a promise in one of them, and Shona labeled the other one, “Happier than ever,” with the line, “Meeting you was like listening to a song for the first time and knowing it would be my favorite.”

Shona just posted a picture of herself and her new boyfriend, Blessed musician David Bracken, on her Instagram Stories.
In the image, a glamorous A caption reveals that Shona and David attended a wedding together as they stand together and face the camera. Shona tagged her spouse and said, “My whole universe.”
Later, she uploaded the picture to her Instagram grid with the remark, “My complete world xxxx,” and then she posted another picture of the duo grinning for the camera with the statement, “And then my soul spotted you, and went.. “Oh there you are! “, “I’ve been waiting for you.”
Completely obsessed… in a very good manner.
The actress’ EastEnders co-stars expressed their admiration for the adorable pictures by adding, “admiration this for you,” while Lorraine Stanley, who portrayed Karen Taylor, added a series of heart emojis.
Shona’s fans were excited to have a glimpse of the celebrity’s new romance, with one writing, “Gorgeous! Shona, I’m so thrilled for you! X” and “Beautiful pair awww.”
After parting ways with co-star Max Bowden, who portrays Ben Mitchell on the serial, the actress found new love. Before breaking up, the couple dated for a short while. Shona said she and Max are still good friends.
“Actually, we’re doing better than ever. We’re at such a great position, it’s a friendship,” she added earlier this year.
“You take a chance and try something, and it doesn’t work out, but that’s life,” she continued. You must assume that danger.
