Offered the chance to earn some easy money, Simon jumped at the chance – but discovered it was drugs too late.
He went to the deal and was tricked into handing over the drugs before getting the money – and the customer then destroyed the bike he had borrowed from dealer Jacob.
When Simon went to tell Jacob what had happened, he was told he was in danger if he didn’t pay more than a grand to replace the drugs.
However, it soon emerged that Jacob and the customer were in on it together and had manipulated Simon into being in their debt to recruit him to their gang.
With nowhere left to turn and his mum Leanne now unemployed, Simon has no choice but to continue dealing to get out of the hole he is in.
Jacob then called him late at night and ordered him into action.
He said: “I’ve got another job for you.
“If you think he’s going to let you walk away, think again. I’ve said you’ll make it up to him. We’ll sort you another bike, and stick it on your tab.”
Simon was then forced to go and do another drug deal, and lie to his mum about where he was going.
Fans were left terrified for Simon and what’s to come for him being drawn further into drugs running.
