Series 3Edit

She becomes Simon's girlfriend in the episode The Gig and the Girlfriend, when she and the boys go to a concert and get high on cannabis. They all go out the back and smoke cannabis and Tara enjoys it. She gets injured while 'moshing' (Simon pushed her over, but he never admits it) and ends up feeling faint and queasy due to concussion and the drugs.

While Simon is tending to her, she leans in to snog him, but, as she does so, she vomits violently over herself, Simon, their shoes and the floor. The two do kiss, but she has to stop to be sick and rush off to the toilets. She doesn't make it and is sick again, but Simon does snog her or 'licking the vomit off Tara's tonsils', as Will puts it and the two start a relationship. In the next episode, Tara hooks Will McKenzie with her friend Kerry and they all go to Waterside shopping centre. She comforts Kerry after Will breaks up with her. In the next episode, Trip to Warwick, Simon and Tara try to have sex in Tara's sister Sophie's bedroom but Simon can't get an erection, due to him listening to Jay's sex advice and begins to hit his penis trying to induce one, scaring Tara. Will, Simon, Jay and Neil get kicked out of the house by Sophie and spend the rest of the night in Simon's car. While they were driving home the following morning, Simon receives a text from Tara ordering him "never to contact her again", thus ending their relationship. Tara is not seen or mentioned again.
