But when he found out Leanne (Jane Danson) had decided to take Harvey down by reporting him to the police, he was furious.

She had been arrested and strong-armed into becoming a registered informant.

Leanne will continue dealing undercover while reporting on Harvey to the police in an effort to get him sent down.

However, it doesn’t come without risks.

And when Simon found out what she had agreed to do after following her, he was furious.

Leanne told him: “It’s a mess and I’m trying to get us out of it.

“Harvey never took the deal so I’ve been working for him to pay off your debt. The police know everything. They’ve said if I give them information then they’ll give us protection.”

Simon shouted: “So you’ve turned police informant?

He then spat: “You’re a grass.

“I can’t believe any of this is happening. You’re going to have to stop. If Harvey finds out we are both going to end up dead.”

Simon is vile calling Leanne a grass when she’s saving his life.

Viewers were disgusted with Simon.

One Corrie fan said: “Simon is vile calling Leanne a grass when she’s saving his life.”

“It is all your fault Simon. Take responsibility, you numb nut #Corrie,” said a second.

A third said: “I actually hate Simon more than I hated [Game Of Thrones characters] Joffrey Baratheon/Lannister and Ramsay Bolton put together #Corrie”
