It terrified the lad as Harvey insisted he owed him thousands – and Simon finally opened up properly to mum Leanne.
After deciding to go to the police, Simon got the news of Kelly’s overdose and realised he faced much more trouble.
Leanne told him: “If we go to the police and explain the situation then they’ll realise the pressure you’ve been under.”
And when Harvey called Simon, he panicked and planned to flee – but Leanne hatched a plan to take on Harvey herself.

“Call him back – I’ve got an idea,” she said as Simon arranged a meeting for tomorrow.
She added: I’ll go instead. I’m not going to tell him off – I’m going to pay him off.
“Don’t worry we’ll find the money somehow.
“This is my fault – I let you get involved with these people.

Another added: “Leanne will sort this. What could possibly Go Wrong??”
