Coronation Street fans’ minds blown as they learn Paul’s unusual real name

Some Coronation Street viewers got a bit of a shock during Wednesday's first episode of the show when Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) was questioned by police.

He was questioned by police over the death of his old abuser Kel Hinchley (Joseph Alessi), with an officer referring to him as his birth name, which is Apollo.

Paul and his sister Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell) are twins, and it seems their mum Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) was feeling astrological when naming them.

That's because Gemma isn't her birth name either, it's Gemini.

Viewers took to Twitter when they heard Paul's real name, with one asking: "Apollo [laughing emoji]?"

A second said: "Paul aka Apollo?"

Another said: "So we've got Apollo and Gemini. I love Corrie."

A fourth tweeted: "Did I hear that right? His name is Apollo?"

While someone else laughed: "Can't understand why Apollo would rather be known as Paul when Pollo is way cooler."
