WITH his MND diagnosis weighing heavy on his mind, Paul Foreman is trying to make the most of the time he has left.

Next week in Coronation Street, the builder played by Peter Ash desperately tries to find a solution to overcome his health ordeal.

Paul was told he was suffering from motor neurone disease

He has desperately tried to find a solution

But is it too late for him?

Celebrations are in order for the Winters next week on ITV as Gemma (played by Dolly-Rose Campbell) is finally tying the knot with Chesney brown (Sam Aston).

However, all of them have been kept in the dark when it comes down to Paul Foreman’s health issues.

But after weeks of running from the truth, Paul finally comes clean to his partner Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank), revealing he had been diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

The vicar joins Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) to support him.

Coming up on ITV next week, Billy first tries to persuade Paul to attend his sister’s wedding.

Paul is finally convinced when he hears from Joseph Brown (William Flanagan) that Gemma has been crying, which prompts him to apologise and all is forgiven.

The ceremony is well underway and emotions run high as Gemma and Chesney exchange vows.

In later scenes, Paul drags Gemma up for a duet, while Billy and Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) hit the dance floor – leaving Paul determined to grab happiness while he can.

This could involve finding a treatment for the life-shortening condition he suffers from.

In recent scenes, Paul desperately searched for a solution to his problems online and stumbled upon a supposed miracle cure called Tofersen.

The medication is an antisense oligonucleotide (ASO) that targets a specific genetic mutation, known as SOD1, known to cause MND according to researchers.

Knowing he had little time left, Paul was keen to know whether Tofersen could help him in his ordeal.

Next week, he reveals that he’s due to find out if he’s suitable for Tofersen and Billy accompanies him to his appointment.

But what will be the outcome of it?

Could Paul have found a viable treatment for his MND?

Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
