Tom Lister doesn't plan on being in 'Emmerdale' forever.

The actor - who plays Carl King in the hit ITV1 soap - enjoys being a part of the show, but hopes to have moved onto a differing role within the next 10 years.

He explained: "In 10 years, I'd like to be working and busy. I've got lots of ambitions and I'd love to have had more experiences and different roles. I love being in 'Emmerdale' but perhaps I might go away and do something else for a bit."

The soap star - who joined the cast of the popular drama in 2004 - also revealed he was tempted by a career as a teacher.

He added: "If I wasn't an actor I'd probably be a teacher. But my wife's a teacher and I see all the stress involved. I just get to play for a living. I also like the thought of being a doctor, but maybe that's just because I really like 'ER'.

"When I was a child I wanted to be a geography teacher. But then I did A-level geography and realised how boring it was!"
