After marrying Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) in Coronation Street, Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) receives criticism from all corners of his parishioners.
The Bistro will host Billy and Paul’s wedding, but Billy’s friends and family are all aware of how much he would want to wed in a church. Because it is a homosexual wedding and Church of England pastors are not permitted to perform same-sex weddings, this cannot take place.
The morning at Number 5 is thrilling as Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) and Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) assist Paul in preparing for the big day.
Billy waits for Paul in the Bistro as Gemma and Bernie bring Paul down the aisle, his heart overflowing with love.
Although Billy and Paul successfully exchange vows at their wedding ceremony, Billy is startled to learn that Paul has been withholding something from him since the wedding.
A parishioner by the name of Babs visits Billy later in the week and congratulates him on his marriage as Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) measures the entryway to make sure it can suit Paul’s new wheelchair. Babs also hands Billy a bottle of champagne.
When another parishioner named Vaughn stops by, he tells Billy that he should be ashamed of himself, and Billy grinned with relief.
When the vicar realizes Paul has heard, he loses his cool and tells him not to worry since his husband is dying.
Peter informed us, thinking on how his MND alters how he portrays Paul, “It’s a struggle.”
It’s another layer to consider, I guess, to be conscious of the portions of your body that won’t be functioning when you’re performing. We’ve all stated from the start that we want to do this as right as we can. We don’t want to misrepresent it because real people do live with it. We aim to demonstrate this in an honest and sincere manner. The MND Association has been wonderful; they have always been reachable by phone if I need any information on any new symptoms that emerge in the narrative.
They maintain continual communication with the story-boarders working on every facet of Paul’s tale.
