Paul Foreman will receive life-changing news in new Coronation Street scenes.

The ITV1 soap is lining up emotional scenes for Paul as Summer Spellman gets ready to leave Weatherfield to study abroad for a while. Billy announces he will be preparing a huge roast dinner as a way to send Summer off in style.

At the same time, Paul is noticing he's having trouble eating so his mum Bernie Winter accompanies him to an appointment with his speech therapist.

During this appointment, the therapist explains to Paul that his speech and ability to eat solid foods are now being impacted by the progression of his Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

Paul has to consider a huge life adjustment when his therapist suggests it may be time for him to use a feeding tube.

Paul tries to keep up appearances, but the sight of his pureed bowl of food has him on the verge of tears.
