Coronation Street's Jack P Shepherd reveals that he has no immediate plans to leave the soap.

Coronation Street's Jack P Shepherd has insisted that he is not thinking about leaving the soap any time soon.

The 32-year-old has just marked 20 years of playing David Platt, who continues to be one of the key characters on the show.

Speaking to OK! magazine, the actor credited Corrie's fun workplace environment as the main reason for keeping him on the cobbles.

"I still love it," he said. "I'm on holiday at the moment but I went into work to see a few mates and have some banter.

"If I do that on my day off, I must enjoy it! I still love acting on the show, I love the people and I laugh all day long.

"I go away happy and I want to socialise with my castmates out of work. It's a great place to work."

Away from Corrie, Shepherd hosts a movie podcast with co-stars Ben Price (Nick) and Colson Smith (Craig).
