The actor, who plays Steve McDonald on the ITV soap, got viewers talking after he was seen sporting a cap throughout Monday night's (April 24) episode of the show.
However, Simon has shut down the speculation that he was wearing a hat to cover a transplant, sharing a picture of himself on Instagram wearing a cap and hoodie.
"To those who think I’ve had a hair transplant coz I’m in a hat, I’m also in a hoodie with no boob job. People are strange," he wrote.
"What’s wrong with a hair transplant ?? Asking for a friend," he joked, while Ryan Thomas (who played Jason Grimshaw) shared a cry laughing emoji.
Elsewhere, last month Simon confirmed he would be enlisting paranormal experts for Discovery+ series Celebrity Help! My House Is Haunted after sharing his belief that his family is being spooked by a poltergeist.
"My wife Emma, my eldest son Alfie, and I have seen a woman who's dressed in white and crosses the landing by the stairs," he told TV Times.
"One time, about 1.30am, I saw her go across. First I thought it was Emma coming in after a night out with her friends. When I rang to ask if it was her, she replied, 'No, you're going to tell me you've seen a woman crossing the landing, aren't you? I've seen her, too!'"
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
