Yes, Sid has had an incredibly difficult few months. After Stuart and Jonny (Ray Quinn) made the Maaliks’ lives a living hell, the young lad was ostracised at school, as several students held him responsible for what happened to Yazz (Haeisha Mistry).
Additionally, he wrestled over his dad’s actions, as he struggled to see the world from the same heinous viewpoint as the extremist.Knowing he had to do what was right, Sid proved instrumental in rescuing Ste (Kieron Richardson) from the far-right organisation when he pushed Stuart to his death.
Afterwards, he was devastated, and even attempted to get himself arrested, as he thought he deserved to be punished.
In spite of those in the village having offered their support, Sid found himself alone and homeless. As a result, he resorted to drugs — which he acquired from Liam (Jude Monk McGowan).
In the coming episodes, he shop-lifts from Price Slice before hightailing it out of there — something which both Juliet (Niamh Quinn) and Romeo (Owen Warner) see.
Will Juliet be able to help Sid in his time of need and thus help him see that there are people who are willing to support him?
Actor Billy Price told Metro.co.uk: ‘I think now that his dad’s gone, Sid can find himself as his own person. Get to make his own opinions about life, his own views, and he can like who he wants to like. He has that freedom now to just be his own person, which is really nice because that gives me a chance as an actor and Sid, as a character, to play with all the new stuff that he hasn’t been able to do before.’
