The animosity between Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) and Kel (Joseph Alessi) has been bubbling for quite some time now in Coronation Street, but it’s set to reach new heights in the coming episodes, as Paul takes it upon himself to confront his abuser over his past actions.
Bernie (Jane Hazelgrove) was delighted when old flame Kel came back into her life. Although daughter Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) was aware of Kel’s dark side, she was equally pleased to see Kel on the cobbles, as she was convinced that he was good for her wayward mum.
However, it soon became apparent that Paul didn’t share in his family’s delight, and it was later revealed that Kel had groomed and sexually abused him when he was only 14. Astute as ever, Billy (Daniel Brockelbank) figured it all out rather quickly — much to Paul’s dismay.
Tensions are set to escalate further in the coming episodes, and Coronation Street has revealed that Paul will take it upon himself to confront Kel about their past.
During their conversation, the young lad realises that Kel only fancied him when he was a young boy. As a result, he loses it and punches Kel, which knocks him unconscious.
Later, Kel wakes up in hospital but refuses to press charges.
With Bernie already holding Paul responsible for the degradation of her former relationship with Kel, will she turn against him for what has transpired?
Or will Paul use this opportunity to reveal the truth?
Coronation Street continues on Monday 23rd September at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
