Coronation Street resident Yasmeen Nazir (played by Shelley King) has been the victim of harrowing behaviour exhibited by Geoff for months but the storyline on the ITV soap finally reached its climax this evening as Yasmeen fought back whilst her husband threatened her with a knife. However, many viewers were confused by Eileen Grimshaw’s (Sue Cleaver) mistake which could have saved Yasmeen before she had to resort to the most extreme lengths in tonight's episode.

Only a handful of residents have shown concern for Yasmeen, such as her beloved granddaughter Alya (Sair Khan), who has never liked Geoff.
She has continually tried to persuade her grandmother to leave her abuser and referred her to police officers under Clare’s Law, for information about Geoff’s past.
They confirmed Geoff has been arrested for affray but when she confronted him about this, he once again managed to spin the truth.
Earlier this week, Yasmeen finally looked to make her escape and had hidden a suitcase in the house, not aware of the cameras Geoff had installed to spy on her every move.

Geoff forced her to reveal the suitcase and proceeded to burn all the contents in the garden, leaving Yasmeen even more terrified.
Tonight saw things reach their worst and Yasmeen felt she had no choice but to fight back against Geoff’s horrible behaviour.
He managed to humiliate her in the pub in front of Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) and his son Tim (Joe Duttine) after not telling her he had lent money to pay for their upcoming nuptials.
Yasmeen was understandably angered after Geoff has spent months taking money from his wife without her permission and limiting her spending.
