Coronation Street Shakeup: Simon Barlow’s Living Situation Altered with Bobby’s Arrival

Changes are afoot on the iconic cobbled streets of Coronation Street as the soap opera welcomes a new character and announces an alteration to the living arrangements of Simon Barlow.

In the latest developments, Simon Barlow will be moving back in with his mother after the unexpected arrival of Carla’s nephew, Bobby.

Bobby, the son of Carla’s imprisoned brother, Rob Donovan, shows up at Carla’s doorstep with a compelling plea for assistance shortly after Christmas. In a move that she may come to regret, Carla reluctantly agrees to let him stay for a few weeks.

On the upcoming episode set to air on Friday, December 29, a van arrives outside Carla’s flat just as she and Bobby are preparing to leave. Bobby recognizes the contents of the van as his own belongings and quickly realizes that his mother, exasperated by his troublesome behaviour, must have arranged for the delivery.

For Carla, who is still grappling with the end of her relationship with Peter Barlow, this revelation is disheartening. She reluctantly accepts that Bobby is here to stay.

In response to the new living arrangement, Simon steps up and offers Bobby his room, deciding to move back in with his mother, Leanne.

Simon had previously resided in a shared flat away from the Street but had moved in with Carla and Peter due to issues with his flatmates.

As Coronation Street fans anticipate these changes, they can also look forward to an upcoming storyline involving Simon. In early 2024, Simon and Sam Blakeman will find themselves in a car crash during an episode set to air. Simon’s speeding to ensure Sam gets to school on time leads to an accident that will surely captivate viewers.

“Coronation Street” continues to entertain audiences on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 8 pm on ITV1, with streaming available on ITVX.
