Holby City star Dominic Copeland 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 David Ames 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.
"You are MISSED," Copeland assured his ex-castmate following Ben's on-screen exit this past March.
Ex-Coronation Street star Sally Lindsay wondered if Copeland'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," Copeland 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.
It was announced last month that Holby would have to take another extended break because it was running short of new material, having only resumed filming in late July.
The cast and crew returned to work for a special COVID-19 episode that will centre 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."
Holby City airs on BBC One.
