Spoilers: Jacob violently attacks drugs victim Simon in CorrieMarch 12, 2022
The last time Jacob Hay (Jack James Ryan) was in Coronation Street, he destroyed Simon Barlow’s (Alex Bain) life by getting him involved in the dangerous world of drug dealing.
With Leanne (Jane Danson) still grieving for Oliver, she was unable to work, so Simon took it upon himself to try and earn more cash.
He was working at the chippy, which was where he met Jacob.
Jacob manipulated Simon and eventually, he started drug dealing.
Simon got himself some cash but ultimately, he put his and Leanne’s lives in jeopardy as he realised if he attempted to pull out of the dealing, someone would threaten him and his family.
Jacob’s manipulation led to Harvey Gaskell’s (Will Mellor) arrival – the drug lord who escaped prison, kidnapped Sam (Jude Riordan), threatened to kill Leanne and ended up shooting Natasha (Rachel Leskovac) dead.
So yes, without Jacob, Simon’s life would be very different.
As Amy (Elle Mulvaney) and Jacob continue to see each other in secret, they decide to take the leap and tell Steve (Simon Gregson) and Tracy (Kate Ford) they’re in love.
Leanne is understandably horrified to see Tracy, Amy and Steve with Jacob, pointing out the teen almost destroyed her family.
Later on, the group head outside and are horrified to find Jacob punching Simon.
But what has happened that’s led Jacob to attacking Simon?
Will this impact how Amy feels about her new boyfriend?
