An article discussing young child actors published to The Guardian claimed that Bain's performance as a child actor in the role of Simon “seems to be the nation's favourite”. It also described the character as “undeniably cute” and “wise beyond his years”, with “great onscreen chemistry with his dad”. The author opined that his father Peter's breakup with Leanne would have been “much more tedious” without Simon's performance. The same article pointed out that Simon “has learned to be resourceful...he has survived a fire, a kidnapping, and has gone missing in Blackpool – from where he managed to make his way back to Weatherfield.” It also stated that when Simon “joined forces” with Joshua Peacock, they made “a formidable team.” When the character of Simon ran away whilst in Blackpool and later returned on his own to his father Peter's doorstep, he said “Ah've been on two trains and a bendy bus...Nightmare. Don't suppose there's any chocolate milk going?”. An article published to The Independent opined that it was “a line that sums up the sweet-and-sour storylines that have kept Coronation Street going for nigh on half a century: 50 years of chocolate milk and nightmares”. Bain won the “Best Young Performance” award in the British Soap Awards 2011 for his portrayal of Simon.
