Me and Lady Luck have never been on good terms...Norman Simmonds

He was rejected by his mother from an early age. Lydia had never wanted a son, and doted on his sister June. As a result, Norman was an awkward teenager, until he fell into the company of Frank Butcher and became his sidekick. Despite Frank exploiting his gentle nature, he was Norman´s hero...

Norman was an optimist and looks for the good in people but bad luck has followed him all his life and he´s used to it now. He´s a busy person who is involved in lots of social activities; his one true love being rock ´n' roll.
