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.
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.
Tina Hobley played "Ashley Harper" in a touring production of Peter James's "Dead Simple". The play was adapted for the stage by Shaun McKenna and had its world premiere at the Orchard Theatre, Dartford on 14th January 2015. It then embarked on a nationwide theatre touring finishing at Worthing's Connaught Theatre on 18th July 2015.
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, Hobley announced her engagement to partner Oliver Wheeler, with the couple marrying later that year. Hobley gave birth to daughter Olivia on 18 April 2008, and on 1 March 2010 to son Orson.
