Coronation Street spoilers Paul Foreman shaken as sex abuser Kel arrives on ITV soap | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Coronation Street’s Paul Foreman (played by Peter Ash) has only just arrived on the cobbles but it seems he is in for an emotional storyline.

In the coming weeks, his stepfather Kel (Joe Alessi) will arrive in Weatherfield and the move will shock Paul and his family. 

Kel reunites with Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) and Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell), who are pleased to welcome him back into their lives.

However, it’s a lot harder for Paul as he struggles to come to terms with the former abuse he suffered at the hands of Kel.

Although Gemma and Bernie are unaware of his turmoil, Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) discovers what has happened.

It’s believed the storyline will progress to see Paul come to terms with his past and eventually look forward to a better future, one where Kel has been reprimanded for his crimes.

Bernie will also have a battle with her demons once she learns what has happened to her boy.

Producer Ian MacLeod recently spoke about the decision to portray such a harrowing storyline, telling Digital Spy: “Gemma and Paul’s family background has always been fascinating to me.

“The inseparable bond of twins but with a huge fault-line down the middle which we’ve hinted at but never explained.”

He added: “This story sensitively explores something that is tragically all too common in families in the real world and will highlight the way these painful events still reverberate many years later.

“It will, I hope, allow people who have survived similar abuse and perhaps suffered in silence to find their voice and speak up.

“It will also showcase the brilliant talents of Peter Ash, Dolly-Rose Campbell, Jane Hazlegrove, and Corrie newcomer Joe Alessi in some incredibly challenging, powerful scenes.”

Coronation Street has been working with Survivors Manchester on the story. 

Last night on Corrie, little Hope Stape (Isabella Flanagan) seemed to confirm Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) worst fears about her.

The youngster had gone to Birmingham to try and turn her bad behaviour around, but it seems it hasn’t worked.

On her second day back on the cobbles, Hope ran away when her mother and step-dad had a fight.

She ended up in the factory and played completely innocent when it set alight.

However, when the episode came to an end, Hope was seen clutching a lighter.

Will Tyrone discover the truth about his troubled step-daughter?

Coronation Street continues tomorrow on ITV at 7.30pm.
