Enough said. I like Simon Barlow now, why do people hate him so much. Far better than the adults.

I don't like him because he's a brat, St Leanne encourages his awful behaviour. He's a child stuck in a mans body, everyday he hates someone for some minor reason. He's also very spoilt if things don't go his way he sulks and everyone has to do it Simons way.

He's a precocious little brat is curly si which is alright while he's little, it will be like chewing tin foil if they keep him like it as he gets bigger. I don't mind him too much at the moment but he could do with the odd clip around the lug hole occasionally like when he decides to do his planes trains & automobiles act.

We are talking about the character not Alex. I don't get why Corrie write Simon as a, know it all spoilt brat with no manners.

I don't hate him - but he's really so, so bloody irritating. Simon the character, of course, not Alex the actor...

I don't like him because he's a brat, St Leanne encourages his awful behaviour. He's a child stuck in a mans body, everyday he hates someone for some minor reason. He's also very spoilt if things don't go his way he sulks and everyone has to do it Simons way.
LOVE this post.

will admit some of his back story is hard to believe like the Blackpool incident he was 6-7 then . and sometimes he`s a bit of a devil . but you just want to protect him at times . dont know why people dislike curly so much .

I know. Blackpool was stupid but thats really down to the writers. Simon is a good character and his life is such a shame at times. Hopefully he pulls through.

I can't wait for the "Simon's school brings back the birch" storyline in the new year.

Cant say I like him, but I think that says more about the scriptwriters than the actor. The fact that I don't like him makes me think he's a good actor!

If I lived on that road - I'd chase him and the meerkats up the street with a broom!

He is rude. He always thinks he can speak. Children should be seen and not heard!

I can't bare Simon as a character - I just find him such a naughty child. I was never allowed to act like that as a child. He is rude. No wonder why Carla made Peter choose. I'd leave that kid at the airport if he was mine.

..ha ha! so do I

I am ok with Simon too, although I sometimes think some of the lines he is given to say are a bit cringy.

Nice attempt. But we all know his character has all the charm of a steaming pile of dogshite with a lollystick in it.
I am being kind, there.
