Hazel Hobbs made her first appearance 10 April 2007. She is portrayed by Kika Mirylees.


Hazel Hobbs is the mother of Garry Hobbs. She first appears when Garry attends her wedding. Hazel then decides she doesn't want to marry her fiancé, Gerald, because he has too much nasal hair, describing it as "like tusks". She and Garry rush back to Gerald's house to collect her belongings, but Gerald arrives at the house before they leave, and hits Garry, thinking he is Hazel's toyboy. Hazel then stays with Garry in Walford, and falls for his best friend Minty Peterson. However this leads to Garry punching Minty and Hazel leaves Walford.

In August 2007, it is revealed that Hazel and Minty have started a relationship behind Garry's back. They take a romantic weekend in Brighton but do not know that Garry is also there with Dawn Swann. Garry finds out they are seeing each other and is outraged. Back in Walford, Minty finds the engagement ring that Garry had used to propose to Dawn (she said no) and bends down to pick it up off the floor. He is on one knee, holding the ring, when Hazel comes in the room, and she assumes that Minty is planning to propose to her and immediately says "Yes, I do". Hazel then starts planning the wedding, and she gets a job as a receptionist at Booty.

Hazel befriends Heather Trott, who is infatuated with her son Garry. Hazel then asks an elated Heather to be her bridesmaid at her upcoming wedding to Minty, to which she accepts. After fainting at work, Hazel starts to believe she is pregnant. Minty buys lots of things for the baby but Hazel tearfully reveals on in February 2008 that it is the menopause, and she can never have a baby. Hazel then leaves the square, believing that she would be restricting Minty's future desires to have a family if she stayed with him. However Hazel returns on 22 April and proposes to Minty on his wedding morning to Heather. Hazel tells him that they'd get married and set for a life on the cruise ships but he says no and goes after Heather. Hazel then watches as the wedding goes ahead without her, and then says goodbye to Garry and leaves. This is her last appearance, but it is mentioned in February 2009 that Hazel is on a cruise ship heading for Monaco.
