CORONATION Street paedophile Kel will lie to the police about Paul Foreman attacking him – just so he can keep his twisted child abuse secret.
The vile former step-dad threatens to report Paul for assault if he breathes a word about their relationship.
It’s after he’s beaten up by a confused Paul who lashes out as he faces painful memories from his past.
Paul – who’s played by Peter Ash in the ITV soap – will this week finally accept the “relationship” he thought he had with Kel was actually grooming and sexual abuse.
He will be seen confronting his former stepdad, who’s now back with his mum Bernie, and attacking him, leaving him unconscious.
When Kel is found and taken to hospital, Paul admits to vicar Billy Mayhew that he attacked him and has left him in a coma.
Billy begs Paul to go to the police and confess, but to also tell them about Kel’s abuse.
But before Paul can make a decision, Kel comes around from his coma and tells the police he was jumped by a gang of strangers.
Meanwhile, Paul returns from the station and reveals to Billy that he couldn’t go through with reporting Kel as it would mean raking up the awful past.
Billy – Daniel Brocklebank – gives Paul a shoulder to cry on while he comes to terms with what has happened to him.
Elsewhere Kel claims that he couldn’t grass Paul up to the police as he’s Bernie’s son.
But Bernie is furious, and she soon turns on Paul saying she’ll never forgive him and demanding to know what their fight was about.
Desperate to keep his sick secret, Kel makes out the fight was his fault and says he made a homophobic comment which Paul took badly.
To Paul’s humiliation, Bernie forces him to apologise to Kel.
