Poor Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) has fallen into Todd Grimshaw’s (Gareth Pierce’s) nasty trap after getting caught becoming too close to a youngster from the helpline in Coronation Street.
Having endured real life abuse himself, Paul has always been desperate to help but knows he is crossing a boundary by meeting up with the lad outside of work. And little does he know that Todd is planning his downfall so he can swoop in on Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank).
Billy and Paul arrive in Speed Daal to find Todd at a table with Ajay. Todd introduces Ajay, explaining that he’s the manager at the helpline. Billy reckons Todd only volunteered because he fancied the manager.
Todd’s quietly pleased with himself. Egged on by Todd, Ajay talks about his job at the helpline and how it’s imperative not to get too involved. Billy and Paul share an awkward glance.
Todd calls for Paul on his way to work. Billy tells Todd how grateful he is that Paul has got both him and Ajay to look after him at work as he’s inclined to follow his heart which can get him into trouble.
When Paul takes a call from a distressed Will Todd urges Paul to go round to his house to help him. When Paul ends up arrested for assaulting a man he believed to be Will’s stepdad, Todd is the first to show support for Billy and Summer while cleverly putting the boot in to Paul with the police.
Billy thanks Todd for his kindness towards Summer and all the support he’s given Paul. Todd smiles to himself. A dejected Paul lies alone in his police cell wondering how he got himself into this mess.
But back home, what is Todd’s next move going to be – and will Paul discover that he has been the executor of his downfall?
