After Nick had broken up with Kirsty in mid-2001 and then Jade had turned him down, Simone, egged on by her best friend. She and Nick started going out. However they faced disapproval, especially when they were seen together in front of Jade.
When Nick was excluded from school he asked Simone if he could borrow her notes, but she had forgotten to bring them and so Jade volunteered to give him his. On the way home Simone started bagging out Jade and Nick, who still had the hots for Jade, dumped Simone.
