Paul struggles to face his fate in Corrie as his day in court arrives

Will he be able to walk Gemma down the aisle?

Paul tells Dee-Dee how he’s come across a new drug on the internet which claims to cure MND. Feeling hopeful, Paul visits the MND clinic hoping to discuss the new drug but without success.

Elsewhere, Chesney lies that he’s sorted the flowers and the sound system for the wedding by calling in a couple of favours from some old mates and Rita suggests that Gemma has a joint stag and hen do with Chesney to cut costs and she offers to put some cash behind the bar.

Realising there's something wrong with his foot, Paul hides it from Billy and when Gemma asks him to give her away at the wedding, he agrees despite worrying that he might not be able to.

When Jenny talks through the plans for the stag and hen do with Paul she notices he’s struggling with his right foot.

Later, Dee-Dee accompanies Paul to his appointment with the MND nurse and Paul begs the nurse to consider him for Tofersen treatment, convinced it’s the answer to his prayers.

When Billy urges Paul to apologise to Gemma, he refuses to discuss it. Confiding in Dee-Dee over how worried he is about Paul, Billy demands to know what’s going on.

Outside the court, Dee-Dee wonders where Paul has got to and Damon finds him sitting alone in Victoria Garden.

Damon urges him to do the right thing and get himself down to the court and embrace the life he has left. When Paul finally arrives at court, Dee-Dee’s awash with relief.

Unbeknown to Paul, Billy too heads into the courthouse.

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1
