Corrie viewers know that Simon was recently drawn into drug dealing by his friend Jacob so that he could buy groceries for his mum Leanne, who’s struggling to cope after losing her son Oliver to an incurable form of mitochondrial disease at the end of last year.
But next week, Simon will find himself in a sticky situation when Jacob asks him to deliver more drugs.
Simon promises to consider the offer.
But later, Simon bottles it and calls Jacob to tell him their deal is off – and that he’ll find another way to pay him back that doesn’t involve drugs.
Jacob is furious and calls his boss.
Could Simon be in grave danger?
Corrie has confirmed that former Hollyoaks star Will Mellor will be joining the cast as drugs lord Harvey.
Harvey will drag Leanne and Simon into his dangerous world and refuse to let them out of his grasp.
Corrie producer Iain Macleod explained: "What we're trying to do with Simon and Leanne is find a way to play their grief that doesn't feel like grief stories that we've done and other shows might have done.
“We've come up with something that starts quite small, but ends up turning into this colossal, thriller-ish, high-octane piece that will play out in the first six months of 2021.
"It ends up with Simon being driven by grief and getting himself into an inescapable situation.
“That forces Leanne to put her war paint on and go out in defence of her remaining son.
“She takes on an incredibly dangerous situation in order to protect Simon.
"That ends up drawing in Nick and Sam – and it collides with Peter and Carla's love story too. It is a grief story, but it's far removed from being one woman sitting alone in a room and feeling sad."
This week, Leanne will spend money she doesn’t have on a TV psychic, who reassures her that feathers she is finding are a sign from her dead son Oliver.
