Did Paul murder Kel in Corrie?

Billy's suspicions were piqued earlier this week in Corrie when Paul was questioned by the police in the wake of Kel's death.

When Paul said he wasn't surprised that Kel had been murdered, the officer pointed out that he never said he was. 

However, scenes set to air on Friday (September 18) will see Craig call at the flower shop flat and reveal that they’re not looking for anyone in connection to Kel’s murder as it was accidental. 

Billy is massively relieved, and Paul is shocked to see his expression and realise that his boyfriend seriously thought he’d murdered Kel.

So no, unless Paul managed to make dumping the body in the river look like an accident, it doesn’t seem like he murdered Kel.

Did Bernie murder Kel in Corrie?

Corrie fans will remember that Bernie was horrified and angry when she discovered the abuse that her former boyfriend Kel had put her son Paul through as a child.

Viewers then saw a violent side to Bernie as she beat up the paedophile for what he had done to her son. 

And this week, Bernie remained oddly calm when she heard that Kel had died. 

When Gemma asked if the death was an accident, Bernie dropped a hint that she might even have been involved.

She told Gemma: “Well, it could’ve been [an accident]. Accident or otherwise, good riddance to bad rubbish I say.”

Might Bernie have tracked down Kel and finished him off for good?

With Corrie keeping shtum about the storyline, viewers will have to tune in to find out whether there’s more to Kel’s death than meets the eye.

Why does Billy accuse Paul of murdering Kel?

Billy is well aware that Kel abused and groomed his stepson Paul while dating his mum Bernie.

Paul’s secret emerged last year when Kel arrived on the cobbles and starting dating Bernie again. 

Paul was forced to relive the hell that Kel had put him through all those years ago, and eventually opened up to Billy, Bernie and Gemma about the abuse he had suffered at the hands of Kel.
