EastEnders' Max Bowden relaxes in a hot tub with stunning girlfriend Danielle in snap posted by co-star Lorraine Stanley

EASTENDERS star Max Bowden said he was in his "happy place" frolicking with his stunning girlfriend in a hot tub.

The Ben Mitchell actor was seen lying back in a rubber ring clutching a champagne flute alongside Danielle McCarney.

The snap was posted last night by Max's co-star Lorraine Stanley, who plays Karen Taylor in the soap.

She tagged the pair on Instagram, writing: "#GoodTimes."

Max, 25, then shared her post himself, saying: "In my happy place 😂."

The soap favourite and Danielle spent lockdown together, entertaining themselves by putting on date nights in the home they share.



He shared one romantic night in with his Instagram followers as the pair tucked in to a home-made meal before heading out for drinks – in reality a pop-up table with a board with 'Bar' scrawled on it.

Max joked: "Five-star TripAdvisor review. Loved the staff, and the food was great. Onto the wine bar next."

He later posted a picture of Danielle knocking back a glass of at the makeshift celebrity hangout.

The star told his followers: "Turns out it's pretty easy to pull at this wine bar, she pulled up a chair. We got chatting. All going well."


Filming on EastEnders was suspended during the coronavirus lockdown but started up again at the end of May – with episodes returning to screens next month.

Max has revealed Ben Mitchell's woes are far from over after losing his hearing in the boat disaster that marked the soap's 35th anniversary.

He told Lorraine Kelly: "He’s not had an easy ride since the 35th anniversary, I think Ben’s head’s all over the place.

"And now to encompass that with a three month lockdown, he's certainly going to be in a worse for wear state so I am hoping for more positives with Ben."
