Coronation Street Updates – Simon Barlow Promoted

Coronation Street spoilers reveal that when Harvey turns toward Simon, he promises that he knew nothing about Jacob’s stealing. Harvey doesn’t seem to have an issue with Simon — at least for the moment. He ends up giving him a promotion and making the teenager his new right-hand man.

Feeling Trapped

However, Simon doesn’t want a promotion. He wants out, which he explains to Harvey. The drug kingpin responds by telling Simon that he still owes him £2,000. He can’t get out until that is all paid off. This ends up making Simon feel trapped and like there is no escape.

After watching Jacob be beaten to the point of requiring hospitalization, Simon confides in Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson). He’s scared and doesn’t know how to get out of this situation. But will she be able to do anything to help?

Leanne thinks that they need to go talk to the police and tell them what Harvey is doing. As the two head to the police station, they hear that Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) has been hospitalized after collapsing. Simon sold Kelly, Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby), and Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) drugs earlier that day. This prompts Leanne to change her mind about going to the police. Instead, she has another idea, but it is really risky and it could end with Leanne losing her life.

What do you think is going to happen with Leanne’s plan? Will she be able to defeat Harvey and protect Simon at the same time? Or will this story end in tragedy? To find out what happens next, keep watching the ITV soap.
