Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden has joked that he would like a family big enough for a "five-a-side football team".

The soap actor and his co-star Charley Webb are expecting their second child, and Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe in the soap, told OK! Magazine: " Having a child changes the dynamic of your relationship, but in a nice way. You have to become a team, which is a lovely thing."

Webb said: " This pregnancy has definitely given us an even stronger bond."

Wolfenden, 35, told the magazine: "We've always said we want a big family - I want my five-a-side football team - but that may change after the second one!"

Webb, 27, who plays Debbie Dingle on the ITV soap, announced their baby news on Twitter in June by posting a snap of the couple with Buster, their five-year-old son.

Buster stood behind a sign in the black and white pic, with the words ''only child expiring December 2015''.

The pair started dating in 2008 and got back together after a short split.
