Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) is to make a return to Coronation Street this Wednesday, but don’t expect his bad mood to have changed while he’s been away.
Simon has been staying with dad Peter in Portsmouth, but Leanne soon finds out that there’s not been a lot of father-son bonding going on.
In fact, it turns out that Peter has basically just put his lad on a train and sent him home, opting instead to spend more time with his new girlfriend.
Leanne has gone to the trouble of preparing a special tea to welcome Simon back. But his sullen mood doesn’t bode well for the evening ahead. Will Simon end up attacking Leanne once again?
You can watch Simon’s comeback below. And beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of the coming week’s episodes of Coronation Street.
