Why did EastEnders Max Bowden and his girlfriend split up?
Fans were shocked when Max’s co-star Jessie Wallace left an X-rated post on the star’s Instagram page last month.
However, a source told The Sun newspaper that the EastEnders legend had nothing to do with the split.
“They’ve been working on issues for a while, but decided it was time to stop,” the source said.

“[Max and Danielle] are a young couple and it was very friendly.
“Jessie had nothing to do with it, her post was just a joke about NTAs and everyone took it the wrong way.”
ED! went to Max’s reps for comment.

What did Jessie say in her comment?
In May 2021, Max captioned a paparazzi photo taken at the NTA: “It’s been a lifetime since that #ntas photo. “
That’s when Jessie left a comment in her responses.
“Remember … if you need a [bleep] cry over it…. I’m your daughter, ”she said, followed by a winking emoji.
One fan even replied, “I definitely use it as a pickup line. Well done Jess.
