Tina Hobley's co-star son
'Holby City' actress Tina Hobley is to co-star alongside her eight-month-old son Orson in the BBC medical drama
Tina Hobley will star alongside her baby son in 'Holby City'.
The 38-year-old actress - who plays ward sister Chrissie Williams in the BBC medical drama - has revealed her eight-month-old son Orson will be joining her in the show to play her alter-ego's child.
She explained: "He'll be playing my son in the show as soon as we've filled in the official paperwork. No offence to the other baby who played my son, but I wanted Orson to appear with me at least once.
"He's the apple of my eye. He's not the best behaved baby but it doesn't matter. He's my last, so he can do what he wants.
Tina also admitted she wouldn't be following in 'Holby City' co-star Patsy Kensit's footsteps and taking part in 'Strictly Come Dancing', as she would rather "be shot" than feature in the reality TV contest.
When asked whether she would be prepared to appear in the BBC One show, she said: "Never! Shoot me if you see me on it. I love watching it from my sofa, but I couldn't make myself that vulnerable. If the judges were mean to me, I'd cry."
