Holby City star David Ames has teased the impending return of the BBC show.
Though the BBC has yet to confirm when Holby will be back on screens following its autumn hiatus, the Dominic Copeland actor has dropped a cheeky hint that filming has already started on festive episodes.
“It’s Christmas in Holby. I’m tempted to trim my scrubs into a tiny two-piece,” he tweeted on Tuesday (September 15).
His naughty comment got some attention from former Holby City castmate Charlie Condou, who pointed out that he’d debuted as Ben Sherwood at Christmas time.
Ex-Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay wondered if David’s ideal “tiny two-piece” would be “shaped like a jaunty Xmas elf?”
“I’m a couple of baubles and a candy cane away from being arrested,” David quipped in response.
Rosie Marcel previously shared a sneak peek at the set of Holby late last month, showing herself and Bob Barrett social distancing in between filming their scenes.
The cast and crew returned to work for a special COVID-19 episode that will center around Maxine McGerry fighting to “keep the hospital in control and her staff safe as coronavirus takes hold”.
BBC Studios’ Head of Continuing Drama Kate Oates has said: “It’s with great pleasure that we open the doors at Elstree to welcome back the exceptional cast and crew of Holby City.
“We have some gripping stories to tell as we explore how the lives of our characters have been irrevocably changed since the start of the pandemic – and how our heroes battle against the odds, come what may.”
