Charlie Condou will join the cast of Holby City later this year.
Charlie joins the long-running BBC One medical drama this winter as new locum surgeon Ben on the Keller ward.
Ben is described as a "charming, alpha consultant" who will be stirring up the dynamics in the hospital, and it won’t be long before he catches the eye of someone in the team…
Charlie Condou said: “I’m over the moon to be joining Holby City as suave new Doctor Ben Sherwood. He’s a good guy but will definitely be ruffling a few feathers over the coming months. I can’t wait to get started!”
Simon Harper, Executive Producer of Holby City and Casualty, commented: “Charlie’s a very fine actor and well known popular TV face - and we are very lucky to have tempted him to Holby.
"I can’t wait to see him as Ben, both causing a stir and getting under the skin of his colleagues on Keller!”
Charlie will make his debut on screen as Ben from December on BBC One.
