Simon Barlow's behaviour is getting more and more extreme and, coming up in Coronation Street (opens in new tab), the Barlows have to take action when he throws his cousin Amy against a wall during a row with her.

Leanne is immediately called for a summit and, at the end of her tether, decides to take him to counselling. But that fails too as Simon refuses to open his mouth during the session.

Meanwhile, Robert is trying to help out by befriending Simon and encouraging him to express his feelings. That tactic fails as well.

Robert's support of Leanne hasn't gone unnoticed by Tracy Barlow, however. Her jealousy is stirred and grows to the point she has a shouting match with Leanne in the Bistro. Robert's furious – has he had enough of her?

Elsewhere, Gary Windass returns to Corrie and while he still doesn't want Alya back, he DOES want to keep the wedding gift shares of the Nazirs' gym!
