Whilst a pupil at The Kingsway School, in 1989, Simon entered a search for the part of one of two new cast members to join the ITV soap opera Coronation Street as the ‘McDonald Twins’.
Fellow Kingsway pupil Nick Cochrane was selected out of the class to become Andy McDonald, and a search was on for another class member who had the same look.
