The TV star, who has appeared on EastEnders since 2008, also sported a matching top along with a pair of black trainers.

Letting her brunette locks fall loose down her shoulders, Shona was seen chatting on the phone as she departed the store.

It comes after sources claimed Shona and Max, who plays Ben Mitchell, have looked 'very cosy' on set recently but it has been said they are not 'officially dating'.

In photos obtained by The Sun, Max - who split from his pregnant ex-girlfriend Roisin Buckle earlier this year - was seen leaving the property in Hertfordshire as sources claim the pair 'have grown closer'.

Onlookers saw Max drive his black BMW into Shona’s street and entering through a wooden fence at the rear of her home. 

Later in the evening Shona came to the garden gate to collect a takeaway meal from a delivery driver. 

A source told the Sun on Sunday: 'They spend as much time together as they can. Most nights or mornings Max is seen entering or leaving Shona's home. He wears the same clothes most days. 

'They have tried to keep their relationship a secret and they drive into the EastEnders set separately. But anybody who sees them together can see how they feel about each other.'

The insider said: 'They've tried to keep their relationship quiet. It had all the hallmarks of an EastEnders' plotline as they tried to keep it secret. It hasn't been the easiest of starts for them. Shona and Max were friends and now they have grown closer. But they don't want to make a big fuss of things.'
