Max recently made his relationship with EastEnders co-star Shona McGarty Instagram official after months of speculation that they were dating.

The soap star met Roisin at a pub in June 2021. The pair quickly became close, and in July went on holiday to Madeira. In August, Roisin was spotted supporting Max at a Sellerbrity football match at Horley FC. 

They went public on social media in October 2021, and spent Christmas together, before Roisin discovered she was pregnant at the beginning of 2022.

The couple decided to separate in March, while agreeing to co-parent once their son was  born, however Roisin claimed in August that they had not been in contact for two months.

The same month, Max was spotted at a country music festival with his EastEnders colleague Shona McGarty, 30, at London’s O2.

Rumours began that the couple had grown close, when Max was seen leaving Shona’s house in May.

Max and Shona recently made their relationship Instagram official after months of dating rumours.

Shona, who plays Whitney Dean in the BBC soap, took to Instagram earlier this month to share cosy snaps of her and Max at House & Classics Festival in Essex.

The couple looked very close at the music event as they partied with pals and posed together in public for the first time.

Shona split from her electrician fiancé Ryan Harris in January, claiming the separation was ‘very amicable’.

Roisin claimed last month that Max had failed to attend their child’s 20-week scan.

Speaking on her new podcast One Mum and a Baby, Roisin said: ‘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.’

Roisin  went on to say that she had invited Max to the babies scan – where she discovered she was expecting a boy – however she says he failed to turn up. 

She added: ‘The door is open and I would never stop him seeing his son so hopefully we hear from him.’

A friend of Max’s told The Sun at the time: ‘Max is saddened to hear Roisin make these claims as he has made it very clear that he will always be there for his son. 

‘But for the sake of his child’s privacy, he is not prepared to discuss these matters publicly and wants to do things the right way.’
