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."

Paul has more to worry about than whether or not he should change his nickname, though.

When being questioned by the police, he mentioned Kel being murdered – though the officer had never mentioned that, only that his body had been found and identified.

Paul worried that he'd put his foot in it and got himself into some trouble, while Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) started to think maybe Paul did have something to do with it.

He went to speak to Bernie about his concerns, mentioning that Paul hadn't been that surprised that Kel had ended up dead.

But Bernie wasn't that worried, saying it wasn't surprising considering the things Kel had done when he was alive.

Could that mean Paul has something to do with Kel's death, or even Bernie?

When he had been alive, Bernie tried her hardest to get him sent to prison for the sick things he did.

She set up a sting mission to catch him in the act of grooming a child, posing as a 14-year-old and filming him coming to meet her.

He ran off but left a bag of booze and condoms, with Bernie hoping that, along with the video, would be enough evidence to get him locked up behind bars where he belonged.

Could she have caught up with him after he scarpered and brought an end to his evil for good?

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
