After taking part in an 888.com sponsored poker tournament called "The Queen of Diamonds", joined by Bad Girls star Stephanie Beacham and Cutting It’s Angela Griffin, Hobley was suspended for a month without pay because stars on an exclusive BBC deal are banned from taking part in anything commercial. Despite playing for just three hours and giving her entire fee to charity, the BBC would not step down. Her suspension took effect in November 2006 when scriptwriters on the BBC medical hit worked her out of the show. The character remained on-screen until 30 January 2007, Series 9, Episode 17, Into the Dark. She did not return until Series 9, Episode 29, Deep Dark Truthful Mirror.. Tina left Holby in January to give birth to her second child who was born in April. She will return towards the end of 2008.
Hobley made a public donation to The Laura Sadler Memorial Fund, which helps young aspiring actors. The fund is named in memory of Laura Sadler, who played Holby City nurse Sandy Harper, and who died in 2003 after falling from the balcony of her boyfriend’s flat.
Tina is also a supporter of seriously ill children through the The Starlight Foundation, in addition to Barnados and the Terrence Higgins Trust.
