EastEnders’ Shona McGarty sparks engagement rumours with new boyfriend with giant sparkler

Shona McGarty has sparked speculation that she’s ready to tie the knot with her new boyfriend David Bracken.

EastEnders star Shona, 31, has reportedly been dating Irish musician David, 36, for a few months – and the pair only confirmed that they were dating at the beginning of September 2023.

But fans think they could already be engaged after Shona was spotted wearing a ring on her left hand. The couple were spotted laughing and giggling as they stepped out together after attending Shona’s sister’s wedding together.

Shona was a bridesmaid at the event and donned a bardot-style dark purple gown for the occasion, while David twinned with her in a dark red shirt.

After the big day, the couple were photographed heading home together, laden with a couple of massive suitcases – but all fans could look at was the mystery rock Shona had on her left hand.

Shona has yet to address the speculation but did share a sweet selfie with her new beau from the wedding. In the pic, Shona can be seen cuddling up to David at the reception while he grins for the camera. In the caption, the EastEnders star wrote: “And then my soul saw you, and went..“Oh there you are!” “I’ve been looking for you.”

She jokingly added that she was “totally obsessed” but in a “healthy way.” Shona also posted a black and white snap from earlier on in the night in which she branded David “my whole world.”

Pals rushed to congratulate her in the comments section, with singer-songwriter Marlon-Oliver Harris writing “congrats Shona” alongside two heart emojis.

Her dedicated fans also offered her their well-wishes, with one saying, “so happy for you both, such a beautiful couple”, while another added that they were a “gorgeous pair.” A third joked that they hoped Shona would get a “happier ending” than her character Whitney Dean.

Shona’s character Whitney has been put through the ringer on Eastenders, and has endured time in prison after being forced to stab someone in self-defense, her fiance being killed and suffering from multiple miscarriages.

Shona was first cast on the show back in 2008, when she was just 17 years old, as the ward of Bianca Jackson. However the actress is now ready to make a change and announced earlier this year that she would be quitting the soap. It’s reported that Whitney’s final appearance on the soap will air sometime in early 2024.
