Hobley was born in Hampstead. She was very shy as a child, and 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 School in East Finchley. Hobley later transferred 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.
Hobley's first marriage was to graphic designer Steve Wallington in 1998. Their daughter Isabella, 'Bella', was born in April 1999; the couple divorced in 2001.
On 22 April 2006, Hobley announced her engagement to Oliver Wheeler, and they married later that year. Hobley gave birth to their daughter Olivia on 18 April 2008, and on 1 March 2010 to son, Orson. Hobley is a supporter of the Starlight Foundation. She is also an Ambassador for Barnardo's, and supports the Terrence Higgins Trust and White Hat Rally.
In February 2016 she withdrew from competing in the reality show The Jump after dislocating her shoulder, breaking her arm and rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament. Seven months after sustaining these injuries she still had not fully recovered. The damage to her body had limited her movement to the point where she has been unable to perform basic daily tasks by herself.
