Following a brief holiday break with Billy Mayhew, Paul Foreman of Coronation Street will return to Weatherfield in upcoming scenes, though as his MND worsens, he is expected to have an accident.
Viewers of Coronation Street recently witnessed Paul Foreman (played by Peter Ash) tell his family and friends about being diagnosed with motor neuron disease after initially being reluctant to do so.
Paul and his partner Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) went on a brief getaway because they wanted to enjoy their time together before Paul’s symptoms worsened.
However, it appears as though his health is beginning to deteriorate more rapidly as the two characters return in upcoming scenes.
Fans of the ITV soap opera will see Paul get off the bus with a bag full of purchases in scenes slated to air the following week.
However, as soon as he tries to get off, his leg gives way, causing him to fall violently and land on the pavement.
Paul’s mother Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove), who saw him fall, hurries over to help him because he is upset.
Paul reluctantly agrees to try her crystal therapy, but she does so in an effort to console him.
Paul accepted his mother’s offer, but when he found out she had been researching a Personal Independence Payment on his behalf, he was left in shock.
He confronted her and made it clear that her fundraising efforts were embarrassing, despite the fact that she thought he had the best of intentions.
Viewers of Coronation Street are aware that Paul’s time on the cobbles is finite because MND reduces life expectancy.
Daniel Brocklebank, a soap star, told Express.co.uk that the cast is already in mourning over Paul and the actor who plays him, despite an exit date not yet being official.
He remarked, “It’s funny, even though we know it’s not real, of course.
But there is also a deep sadness in knowing that Pete’s time on the show is now coming to an end.
“I mean, Jane Hazelgrove, who undoubtedly plays Bernie, is completely incapable of controlling her sobbing.
“Like, you know, she starts crying when she sees Pete hobbling onto the set.
“We’re saddened by Peter leaving rather than his death, which is a blessing. The feelings are real.
