The arrival of Kel (Joseph Alessi) is set to send Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) off the rails in spectacular style in Coronation Street – and when Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) discovers why, it’s clear to see the reason.
Kel is the ex of Bernie (Jane Hazelgrove) and they reconnected after he caught her shoplifting and let her off recently. Gemma Winter (Dolly Rose Campbell) has told Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) that Kel was always good for Bernie but he is hiding a much darker nature. And when Paul comes face to face with him, he is left horrified – especially when Bernie announces that they are getting back together.
As Paul is left shaken and struggles to hide his emotions, Kel catches up with him and private and tells him that while what happened between them was special, he is focusing on Bernie this time and nothing can go on this time.
It soon becomes clear that Kel groomed and abused Paul as a young teenager and when Kel leaves, Bernie blames her son for creating an atmosphere and not making him feel welcome. Billy soon quizzes Gemma about Kel’s feud with Paul and Gemma explains to him that Paul flipped one day and caused Kel to leave the family.
As Billy is concerned to discover that this all happened when Paul was 14, he starts to piece together the truth of what happened and approaches Billy to try and get things out in the open. But when he broaches the subject, Paul angrily lashes out and orders Billy never to come near him again.
With Billy having had the truth of Paul’s abuse confirmed, he is torn over what to do and will continue to try and persuade Paul to speak out. But will Bernie and Gemma discover what Kel put him through?
Coronation Street continues on Monday 16th September at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
