Who is Paul Foreman in Coronation Street?

Paul Foreman was David Platt’s cellmate in May 2018 at Highfield Prison when he was held on remand after attacking Gary Windass and skipping his plea hearing.

David (Jack P Shepherd) and Paul got off on the wrong foot when David – who was still traumatised after being raped by Josh Tucker – insisted he didn’t want a cellmate.

David also ended up slamming Paul up against a wall when he tried to wake him up and inadvertently caused David to have a flashback of the sexual assault.

Paul had tried to be friends with David but he wasn’t interested in engaging with him.

After attacking Paul, David apologised and said he would need friends in prison if he was sentenced.

But Paul wasn’t interested in being mates with David after his violent outburst.

When he is released from prison he is set to turn up in Weatherfield and The Daily Star reports that he will be revealed as Gemma Winter's brother.

When is Paul Foreman returning to Weatherfield?

"He and Paul got on well in prison but David doesn't want to think about that time.
