Simon keeps Leanne's secret in Corrie as Nick puts him on the spot

But can he help her turn a corner?


After Simon apologises to Kelly for standing her up, she asks if he wants to do something today instead but when Simon makes his excuses, she storms off.


Back at the flat, Simon tries to encourage Leanne to eat but feels helpless as she flees to her room in tears. Worried about Simon, Nick lets himself into the flat and is shocked to find Leanne there too. Lying to him, Leanne tells him that she's just got back from France.


With Nick gone, Simon urges Leanne to see that Nick’s suffering too. But when Leanne retorts that Oliver wasn’t his son, Simon flinches and Leanne’s mortified. Allowing her one sleeping pill, Simon hides the packet as a precaution.


The next day, seeing her up and dressed, Simon hopes Leanne is turning a corner and is chuffed when Dev offers him an evening job delivering fish and chip.


Corrie continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
