Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) has struggled to come to terms with the fact that Kel (Joseph Alessi) groomed him when he was a teenager in Coronation Street and — determined to get to the truth — he confronts his abuser in tonight’s episode.
When Kel showed up on the cobbles, Bernie (Jane Hazelgrove) and Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) were beyond delighted. However, Paul didn’t share in his family’s joy about the returnee and — after doing some detective work — Billy (Daniel Brockleback) made a shocking discovery about the reason why.
After further conversations with the vicar in Friday’s hour-long episode, Paul came to the realisation that Kel had groomed him when he was a teenager, and in tonight’s instalment, he sets out to confronts his abuser about his past actions.
Paul calls round to Chesney’s (Sam Aston) to show Kel the photo, before explaining how Billy thinks he’s a victim of sexual grooming. The older man wastes little time in attempting to dispel this claim, assuring Paul that this wasn’t the case, informing him that they were in love with one another during that time.
Paul gets drunk in the Rovers and, later, he confronts Kel once more — only this time he tries to kiss him. However, Kel pushes him away and, as a result, Paul comes to the realisation that he only fancied him when he was a young boy. As a result, he loses it and punches Kel — knocking him unconscious.
What will transpire next?
Bernie and Gemma were overjoyed when they thought that the animosity between Kel and Paul was no more, so how will they react upon learning of the two’s brawl?
What’s more, will the truth out?
Coronation Street continues on Monday 30th September at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
