Very shy as a child, Hobley was sent to speech and drama classes in an attempt to counter her introversion. She grew up in the London suburb of Mill Hill and attended Bishop Douglass Secondary School in East Finchley. Hobley enrolled with a very strict speech and drama teacher, whom she adored and stayed with for fifteen years, before transferring to the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art.
Hobley is best known for her role as feisty ward sister Chrissie Williams in BBC medical drama Holby City. After graduating from the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, where she trained from 1990 to 1993, Hobley had a number of roles in a variety of television dramas, including Coronation Street as Samantha Failsworth, Harbour Lights as WPC Melanie Rush and The Bill as Sue Booker.
Hobley's first marriage was to graphic designer Steve Wallington in 1998. Their daughter Isabella 'Bella' was born in April 1999; the couple later divorced in 2001.
On 22 April 2006, her boyfriend Oliver Wheeler, at that time a director of Freud Communications, and now Head of Communications at ticket marketplace viagogo.com, proposed to Tina at their Cotswolds cottage. Tina and Oli were married in December 2006 in the Cotswolds.
On 23 October 2007, the couple announced that Hobley was pregnant with their first child. Hobley gave birth to Olivia on 18 April 2008. On 1 March 2010 she gave birth to her first son, Orson Henry Attwood Wheeler.
