Paul Foreman ramped up his plan to get into Billy Mayhews life, but are his intentions with the vicar honourable in Coronation Street?
Paul arrived back in Weatherfield having served his time, but it was clear from the outset he had some sort of agenda, leading his sister to believe she had a stalker before he crashed through her front door to reveal his return.
Keen to get rid of him, Gemma tried to thwart his plans at sliding into a cozy life on Coronation Street by warning Carla about him after she gave him a job.
Paul didnt take kindly to her meddling, and issued her with a menacing threat – leave him alone or hed slice Chesneys eyelids off. Nice. And it may come to light that he might have been covering up for a murder caused by his sister – so hes clearly not back to simply kiss and make up.

So we know hes not exactly a nice guy through and through, could he also have an ulterior motive to his romance with Billy?
The cocky confident Paul demanded a drink from Billy, but Billy refused, saying he had to feed Summer her tea. But Paul is nothing if not persistent, and told Billy theyd go for a drink the next day, and it would be a date.
As Billy accepted and went to head home, Paul pulled him into a doorway and kissed him passionately.
They shared a moment like a couple of giggly teenagers, and as Billy headed off, Paul gave a very satisfied look.
Later, he came across Gemma, who was pining after Chesney as he took girlfriend Emma home and Paul seized the opportunity to taunt her.
He told her he was dating a pillar of the community while mocking her for her miserable love life. Hes clearly got a lot over his sister, how will he use it? And will Billy end up being a pawn in his game?
