star Tom Lister
has revealed that his character Carl King will have a new feud on his hands in the coming months.
Carl's recent storylines have seen him support brother Jimmy through his amnesia ordeal
and its aftermath, as well as continuing his animosity with ex-fiancée Chas Dingle
However, in an interview with Inside Soap
, Lister explained that Carl will soon be at war with Cain Dingle, played by Jeff Hordley.
Confirming that Carl's next storyline will not be a romantic one, the actor explained: "I don't think anyone in the village would take Carl at this stage, as he's got such a bad reputation!
"However, I do know that Carl and Cain are going to be at loggerheads over the coming months for some reason. There's some unfinished business between the Kings and the Dingles."
Lister also claimed that Carl remains popular with female viewers despite him cheating on Chas with Eve Jenson last year.
"There are a lot of people who just want to take Carl home - they all think he's misunderstood," he explained. "They want to take him under their wing and sort him out! Women come up to me in the supermarket and say, 'Ooh, you're a wrong'un, you are!' It does make me giggle."> Read more Emmerdale spoilers and news
