Max Bowden Takes on New TV Role After EastEnders Departure

MAX Bowden has secured his first television role since his departure from EastEnders. The 29-year-old actor, best known for his portrayal of Ben Mitchell on the BBC soap, will be appearing in the upcoming series of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip alongside former co-star Danielle Harold.

The duo was recently spotted filming for the BBC show in a small town in Gloucestershire, where they shared a moment of reunion with presenter Ishy Khan. Fans were delighted to see the pair together again, as they reminisced about their time working closely on EastEnders, where their characters shared a daughter named Lexi.

Max’s departure from the show was announced back in December 2023, following a decision by the show’s producers to end his contract.

In a heartfelt message on Instagram, Max reflected on his time on EastEnders, expressing gratitude to the fans for their unwavering support. He also shared his excitement for his new project, a stage production of Birdsong, based on Sebastian Faulks’s novel.

Max’s journey post-EastEnders continues to unfold, with fans eagerly anticipating his upcoming appearances on television and stage. As he embarks on this new chapter in his career, one thing is certain – Max Bowden is a talent to watch.
