EastEnders star Shona McGarty has gone Instagram official with her new boyfriend, just months after first revealing that she was enjoying a new romance.
The actress, who plays Whitney Dean, shared a lovely snap with beau David Bracken, who she branded her ‘whole world’.
The soap star subsequently posted another picture with the musician, who is the lead guitarist of the Irish duo Blessed, telling her followers that she is ‘totally obsessed’ with him but in a ‘really healthy way’.
‘And then my soul saw you, and went: “Oh there you are!”’ she wrote in the caption. “I’ve been looking for you.”
Shona received support from her EastEnders co-stars, with Jacqueline Jossa, who played Lauren Branning, writing: ‘Love this for you’.
Karen Taylor star Lorraine Stanley replied with seven heart emojis, while Tanya Branning actress Jo Joyner commented with a two heart emojis and a fire emoji.
Shona first confirmed that she was in a new relationship back in June. ‘I’m speaking to someone at the moment but it’s very early days,’ she told The Mirror.
The Whitney Dean actress is set to depart EastEnders after 15 years.
Speaking about her exit from the show, she told Inside Soap: ‘It wasn’t an easy decision because I’ve made so many friends. I’ve seen people come and go, and meanwhile, Whitney has been one of the longest-standing characters.
‘I’ve had so much fun and done so many storylines, some of which have been sensitive, and I’ve been honoured to be trusted with such heavy stuff year after year.
‘So I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, but it was the right decision for me as I want to do other things. After 15 years, I’ve had a pretty good run!’
