Devastated Paul in Corrie horrified by future in wheelchair

As time goes on in Coronation Street, Paul Foreman’s (Peter Ash) motor neurone disease symptoms continue to get worse.

In a recent episode of the ITV soap, the beloved character met Shelley at a support group. Paul was initially taken aback to see Shelley, who uses a wheelchair and has a personal assistant called Cags.

Befriending Shelley has allowed Paul to learn a lot more about what his life will eventually look like as his MND progresses.

In upcoming episodes, Paul gets another reminder that his health is deteriorating as he tries to cover the struggle he’s having with the use of his right leg.

The trouble is spotted by Billy (Daniel Brocklebank), who later returns home with a walking aid for his partner.

Paul tries to use the aid but admits to Billy that it’s going to take some getting used to.

Billy – always trying to help – gently suggests the idea of Paul using a wheelchair instead, but he is horrified.

In the week, it’s Paul’s birthday, and Billy presents him with an engagement ring.

When Paul then turns up at the Bistro for the joint party with Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell), he is overwhelmed to see so many people.

Gemma suggests that Paul takes Bryn to the park but while he’s there, the young lad runs off.

Paul attempts to go after him, but the weakness in his leg causes him to crash to the ground.

Back at the flat, Paul admits that he can’t manage the stairs, which leads to Billy and Todd (Gareth Pierce) helping him up to the flat.

Feeling defeated, Paul reluctantly admits that it might be time for a stair lift after all.
