Coronation Street: violent Simon lashes out on the football pitch – see the first-look pictures

Will Leanne take action after Simon gets angry again?


Simon Barlow’s temper is to be unleashed again – but this time it’s not adoptive mum Leanne in the line of fire but one of Simon’s fellow football players.


Scenes to be shown in the coming weeks will see Leanne go against Simon’s wishes when she and Zeedan turn up to watch him play in his match.

But when Leanne starts talking to squad manager Tom (played by former Midsomer Murders star Daniel Casey), Simon begins to think she’s chatting him up.

At half time, Simon lays into Leanne for embarrassing him by flirting with Tom. But worse is to come when – during the second half – Simon tackles another player, bringing him down and causing him to writhe in pain.

So will a horrified Leanne take action? Find out when Coronation Street airs these scenes on Monday 8 February.
