EastEnders star Shona McGarty left terrified after man 'bombarded her with messages'

EASTENDERS star Shona McGarty has been left terrified after a man allegedly bombarded her with messages.

Shona, 29, called in police after she blocked Dan Dempsey, 34, on social media.

The actress, who plays unlucky in love Whitney Dean in the BBC1 soap, is said to have agreed to livestream a chat on the man’s TikTok site to raise money for charity appeal Stand Up To Cancer.

But Shona was left terrified when he sent her a stream of messages and called her repeatedly.

Shona is currently single after splitting from electrician fiancé Ryan Harris in January this year.

She joined the soap in 2009 as Bianca Jackson’s former step-daughter – and this week, horrified fans watched as Whitney’s boyfriend Kush Kazemi was murdered by serial killer Gray Atkins.

Her character lived through extreme harassment on screen when Whitney was targeted by evil Leo – the son of her former abuser Tony King.

The storyline ended with terrified Whitney stabbing her stalker to death after finding him hiding in the attic of her house.

When approached by The Sun, Dempsey admitted repeatedly messaging the actress and claimed he “only wanted to know why she’d blocked me”.

He said: “I didn’t know she felt harassed – she didn’t tell me to stop messaging her.”

Dempsey confirmed he was arrested on suspicion of harassment last Friday and bailed until May.

Dempsey, a single dad of two from Derby, also confirmed that his bail conditions banned him from going to the EastEnders set or Shona’s home.

Shona’s agent and EastEnders had no comment when approached by The Sun.
