EastEnders Max Bowden splits with girlfriend after co-stars suggestive tweet

EastEnders star Max Bowden, who is best known for playing Ben Mitchell in the soap, has split from his long-term girlfriend Danielle McCarney.

The news comes after it was revealed that co-star Jessie Wallace left a sexually-explicit message on his Instagram post four weeks ago.

Max, 26, decided to call an end to the relationship with his former girlfriend after two years together but it is believed the decision was amicable.

Fans of the star speculated that something could be going on between him and Jessie after she wrote a message on his Instagram post which seriously raised some eyebrows.

Commenting on Max's throwback picture at the 2020 NTAs, Jessie penned: "Remember… if you need a m***e to cry on… I'm your gal."

Fans were quick to notice Jessie's suggestive comments and replied under the original post.

Laughing at the comment, one fan penned: "Supportive m***e. I'm definitely using this as a pick up line. Cheers Jess."

While another shocked fan said: "Omg," followed by crying laughing emojis.
