Paul's been deteriorating

Last night on Coronation Street (Monday, June 10), Paul sat out in the rain and enjoyed some of his last moments outside after receiving some bad news.

With his neck muscles weakening, Paul was upset knowing that he wouldn’t be able to use his stairlift for much longer.

With the character’s exit drawing nearer, fans of the ITV soap have now taken to social media to share their upset.

Coronation Street: Paul is deteriorating

Paul attended another medical appointment last night on the cobbles as Billy stayed by his side.

He was then informed that his neck muscles had become weaker which meant that it wouldn’t be long before his body couldn’t support itself.

This would mean that he wouldn’t be able to use his stairlift anymore, making leaving his flat really hard.

Sitting outside in the rain, Paul wanted to soak in the moment before being locked away in his flat.

He then told Billy to hold onto the memories and to make every last moment count.
