Chizzy Akudolu returns to Holby City in time for Christmas

18 months since she was last seen in Holby City, Strictly Come Dancing contestant and Loose Women's Chizzy Akudolu will be reprising her role as Doctor Mo Effanga.

She'll be returning to our screens in the lead up to the festive period and speaking about her return, Chizzy said “Being back on Darwin is like putting on your slippers and wrapping up in your duvet. You’re home. I’ve really missed the cast and crew.”

Chizzy will return to filming in the coming weeks, appearing on screen in the lead up to Christmas and is said to be on our screens for two months.

Simon Harper, Executive Producer of Holby City and Casualty, added “Chizzy is an all-time audience favourite and it’s glorious to have her back for a stint. Mo comes sweeping in after huge, dramatic events at Holby with all her trademark warmth and humour intact - and is determined to change one particular life on Darwin for the better.”

Holby City airs Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC One
