    Coronation Street fans blasted scenes on tonight’s episode (March 24) after Paul Foreman’s “unrealistic” scenes played out.

    Paul has been struggling since being hit by a car, but as his symptoms refuse to improve, he heads to the doctor to find out if anything else is wrong.

    On the latest episode, Paul was seen receiving a text message telling him he had an appointment with a Neurologist that day, just one day after his doctors appointment.

    Viewers couldn’t help but criticize the scene, with many saying the NHS would never deliver an appointment that fast in real life.

    Taking to Twitter, viewers voiced their frustrations with one fan blasting: “Referral from GP for neurologist then text message the following day from the hospital offering an appointment! I can hardly believe it! Oh hang on a minute did I say this was on #coronationstreet?!”

    Another fan penned: “Time whizzes by in @itvcorrieNext day #neurology appointment!!! #Corrie drifts even further from reality!”

    A third echoed: “Who the f**k gets an appointment that quickly? I’ve been waiting 9 months for a rheumatology appointment #Corrie,” while a fourth agreed: “Weatherfield is a magical place and Dr Gadaas is a wizard getting referral appointments the following day #Corrie.”

    Paul was hoping to get some compensation following his car crash with Carla, causing major friction with Peter.

    But he soon learned that his symptoms were not related to the crash, but something far more sinister.

    Actor Peter Ash who plays Paul is set to be hit with a devastating diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease.

    As his symptoms refuse to improve, he is soon to discover the devastating diagnosis.

    Ahead of the upcoming dramatic storyline, actor Peter Ash spoke about the importance of raising awareness about this disease.

    The actor revealed that he knew very little about MND before embarking on the storyline and that he is hugely grateful to the MND Association for all their help and support.

    Peter said, "For any actor playing a role which examines a real-life issue or condition, there comes a huge sense of responsibility, and we are aware that some people watching this storyline are experiencing it in reality, it is their life."

    Speaking to The Mirror Peter also opened up about the physical challenges of the role, admitting that "it's quite a journey that he'll be going on."
