EastEnders star Max Bowden has reportedly left his pregnant ex feeling "heartbroken" after starting a relationship with his co-star.
Max, who plays Ben Mitchell in the BBC soap, has become "inseparable" with his co-star Shona McGarty, who plays Whitney Carter in the soap.
It comes after Max’s pregnant ex-lover, Roisin Buckle, revealed last month that the pair were having a baby boy.
Max is said to have split from insurance executive Roisin earlier this year, but he's "thrilled" to become a father.
Roisin has admitted she's suffered a "tough few weeks" as she took to social media with snaps of her baby bump.
Now, Roisin has been left feeling "humiliated and disrespected" – according to reports in The Sun.
A source told the publication: "It has been dreadful for Roisin, she feels humiliated and disrespected. She is expecting a baby and although she is a strong woman she feels very let down.
"She never expected Max to move on so quickly. She believed they were on a break, taking time out of their relationship to sort out their differences.
"Having to see him and Shona together has been heartbreaking.

"When he was pictured leaving Shona’s home she had people asking her what was going on; work colleagues asking if she was OK about it all, which she found incredibly embarrassing."
The source added that Roisin has always been a "private person" and now feels as if she's "at the centre of a real-life EastEnders plot."
It follows reports Max and Shona have become "inseparable", are "mad for each other", and spend lots of quality time together.
The pair have also been spotted holding hands whilst out together.
Max and Roisin went public with their relationship last October, after meeting in the pub in the summer.

Roisin has kept quiet about her relationship with Max, but in May she created an Instagram account dedicated to her journey as a single mother, called @one_mum_and_a_baby.
She said: "I’m now a single mum to be, very excited yet the future is all very unknown to me so I would like to document my journey."
Since then, she's kept her followers updated with photos of her pregnancy and insists she's "so excited" to meet her little boy.
She wrote: "Just under three months now I am so excited to meet him. God how can you love someone that you’ve never met, this much."
Daily Star has contacted Max's representative for comment.
