EastEnders star Shona McGarty sparks rumours she's engaged to boyfriend after just months of dating as she flashes ring | The Sun

EASTENDERS star Shona McGarty has sparked rumours she’s engaged to marry her new boyfriend – just months after getting together.

The Sun revealed Shona, 31, was dating Irish musician David Bracken earlier this month and she’s now been spotted wearing a ring on her left hand.

The actress, best known for playing Whitney Dean on the BBC soap, could be seen laughing and giggling with David after attending her sister’s wedding.

Shona was a bridesmaid on the big day and looked incredible in a purple dress – with the new bling on show.

The next morning she again flashed the ring as she headed home with David.

It comes after she shared the first picture of herself with David on Instagram, telling fans: "My whole world @davidirishband."

David previously hinted he was committed to Shona as he shared a picture of their hands together and wrote: "A promise is a promise. Never to be broken. #happy #happyplace."

Tattooed David is one half of Irish guitar duo Blessed, who regularly perform gigs across their homeland and have more than 18,000 Instagram followers.

Last October, Shona split from Max Bowden – six months after they started dating.

The actor, who plays Ben Mitchell in EastEnders, and stunning Shona decided it wasn't going to work after Max became a dad for the first time with his ex girlfriend.

Shona, who is also a talented singer, recently explained her decision to leave Walford and her character Whitney Dean behind after more than a decade.

She said: "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."

She added: "So, I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to my friends and family, but it was right decision for me as I want to do other things.

"After 15 years, I've had a pretty good run."
