Oberman joining Monroe
Actress Tracy-Ann Oberman has signed up for a role in the second series of ITV1's hit medical drama Monroe.
The former EastEnders star will play new nurse Lizzie Clapham, who looks after the patients' emotional care.
She'll star alongside James Nesbitt in the title role of Gabriel Monroe, while Drop the Dead Donkey star Neil Pearson and actress Lisa Millet have also signed up for the second series.
The show's producers Michele Buck and Damien Timmer state, "We were thrilled with the success of Monroe series one, and Peter (Bowker)'s scripts for this new run deliver yet more drama, wit and emotion, and we're opening up St Matthew's hospital in all sorts of ways.
"Our brilliant ensemble is even stronger than before, and at the centre is James Nesbitt's extraordinary performance as Gabriel Monroe."
Filming for Monroe is currently taking place in Leeds.
