Simon was a ten-year-old boy who was rushed in to Weatherfield General on Christmas Day 1999, having been knocked over on his bike. Despite the best efforts of the A&E staff, Simon died and Martin Platt and Rebecca Hopkins had the task of breaking the news to his distraught Mother. She ran out of the waiting room in hysterics, knocking Rebecca in the process and cutting her head. Martin patched the cut up. Upset at the day's events, the two got closer and ended up making love, thus starting an affair over the next few months.
- Uncredited on the episode, the boy's name was shown on the gift tag of a Christmas present
