AFTER finding out he is suffering from motor neurone disease, Paul Foreman is trying to provide for his family before it's too late.
But the Coronation Street builder makes a bold move when he blackmails dangerous thug Damon Hay.
With money running out and his days numbered, Paul Foreman is adamant on making sure his loved ones have everything they need before he meets his maker.
Regular ITV viewers will remember the character played by Peter Ash was recently told he is suffering from motor-neurone disease (MND) and may only have fewer than three years to live.
However, Paul has refused to tell the his loved ones about his ordeal with the life-shortening condition.
Coming up, his friend Dee-Dee Bailey (Channique Sterling-Brown) introduces him to Trish, a woman who lost her husband to MND, to knock some sense into him.

Trish describes the stages of MND and tells Paul what to expect but there's no way around it – despite Dee-Dee's advice, Paul is still ready to keep things under wraps.
Instead, Paul focuses on making some extra cash as he focuses on making sure his twin sister Gemma Winter gets her dream wedding.
This has led him straight to ask for some work from Damon Hay (Ciarán Griffiths), regardless of the danger he could be thrown into.
Next week, Paul asks another thug called Niall to give him another job, far from deterred from a life of crime and big money after his last experience turned sour.

Dee-Dee threatens to call the police but a stubborn Paul insists he needs the money and puts the car into gear before roaring off.
Later on, however, Paul decides to take action and corners Damon in the Bistro office.
Ready for anything to get money, Paul demands £25k from Damon and threatens to grass him up if he doesn't go along with it.
Unfortunately for Paul, Damon has too much experience in the business to let himself be intimidated.
After standing his ground, he double-crosses Paul by calling his criminal contacts, urging them to shut down Paul's attempt at blackmail.
He vows to Paul that he'll get the cash he wants as soon as he can lay his hands on it.
When the pair meet at the precinct, Damon admits that he doesn't have any of the money he promised.
Instead, Paul gets a warning – Niall and his brother are out for his blood.
Could it be the end of the line for Paul?
