Corrie exit looms for Paul as fans ‘work out’ real health diagnosis after crash



Coronation Street fans have been left frightened for fan favourite Paul Foreman after he showed scary symptoms at the end of the week on the ITV soap.

Paul (Peter Ash) was in a freak accident on the cobbles when Carla Connor (Alison King) ploughed into him on a motorbike while she was driving the Underworld van and had been, unbeknownst to her, drugged with LSD by evil Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce).

Paul was knocked off the bike, but managed to stand up and seemed in good health as he was taken to the Weatherfield hospital for check-ups.

The doctors then told Paul he was fine, however, the character has since developed symptoms indicating he could have done more damage than first anticipated.

The scenes came on the Friday evening instalment of the soap, after Paul and vicar Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) celebrated the rekindling of their romance by sharing the good news with family and friends.

On Friday evening, Gemma Winter ( Dolly-Rose Campbell ) was distraught to receive an adjusted gas bill for £4,000 and good brother Paul promised to help her sort it.

Then, in later scenes while Billy's back was turned, Paul struggled to grip a glass with his right hand – but hid his concern from those around him.

Corrie fans at home were deeply worried after noticing a sudden decline in his health following the crash – with some thinking he may have an underlying nerve condition such as multiple sclerosis.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “What’s Paul got parkinsons or MS?” as another echoed: “Ah! Why can't Billy and Paul be happy? Is he having MS symptoms??”

A third asked: “How can nobody notice that Paul's arm is giving him gyp?,” as another wrote: “Looks like Paul has nerve damage in his arm from the crash.”

It came after similarly worrying scenes earlier in the week, when Paul was trying to relax in the Rovers over a game of darts.

However, he found himself struggling to pick up the darts – which went unnoticed by Billy and Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) nearby.

When he did manage to throw them, he hit Evelyn Plummer's (Maurren Lipman) hat instead of the dart board, causing a huge outburst from her.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV.
