Holby City's James Anderson gets married twice in one day, after his character Dr Oliver Valentine walked up the aisle in Tuesday night's episode of the BBC soap and he tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart in real life

James Anderson has got married.

The 'Holby City' hunk tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart Rebecca Hibbs in Greece yesterday (20.09.17) - just one day after her character Dr Oliver Valentine exchanged vows with his with his on-screen lover Zosia March in the medical drama.

Sharing his exciting news, he tweeted: "Got married last night on BBC One. Now off to get married in real life. #goingforthedouble (sic)"

And the actor has found the similarities between his personal and professional life "weird" and Camilla Arfwedson (Zosia) - who is dating 'Call The Midwife' actor Jack Hawkins - has had the same experience.

He told Inside Soap previously: "Weirdly, we shot the proposal a couple of days after I got engaged in real life."

He added: "There are a few things in Ollie and Zosia's story that strangely mimic my own, and in some ways Camilla's personal life too.

"It's been lovely for us both."

James joined Holby City in 2009 and left in 2013 after his on-screen wife died from a brain tumour before he returned a year later.

James has admitted he's now had a lot of experience planning weddings.

He said: "It's hilarious.

"I can't get away from it! I get home and my fiancée says, 'we need to sort out the guest list', then I get to work and do the same thing!"
