EastEnders actor Max Bowden has shared a moving tribute to his grandfather and the MacMillan cancer nurses who cared for him after he died following a cancer battle on Monday.

The star, best known for playing Ben Mitchell in the soap, revealed his sad family loss in an Instagram post which held an image of his hand being held by his grandad’s.

He praised the hard work and care of the nurses and is now hoping to raise money to further support them

Max wrote: ‘Hi all. On Monday evening I lost my grandad to his battle with cancer. In his last weeks he was overwhelmed by the amazing love and care the @macmillancancer nurses provided him with.

‘For that reason I am reposting my longest day challenge website in the hope of raising more money for them. Please give generously if you can. Thank you.

‘The website is https://longestdaygolf.macmillan.org.uk/Team/raysgeese.’

Co-stars including Danielle Harold, Dean Gaffney, Gurlaine Kaur Garcha, Rukku Nahar and Natalie Cassidy shared their love and support for their colleague and friend in the comments.

The government yesterday insisted that the NHS and hospitals were still ‘open for business’ despite the growing increase in COVID-19 admissions.

It has been encouraged that people with health concerns attend appointments and hospital as they normally would, amid statistics surrounding thousands of missed cancer screenings.
