Yasmeen Nazir’s (played by Shelley King) husband Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) has been emotionally tormenting his wife for months and the sickening abuse came to a dramatic head in tonight’s Coronation Street. After humiliating her in the Rovers Return and spitting out a barrage of evil insults, Geoff lunged at his wife with a knife before she hit back and cut his neck with a broken bottle.

In tonight’s instalment, Geoff demanded Yasmeen wear an over-the-top red dress which he later revealed he had bought for a prostitute.
He forced his wife to wear the dress in the Rovers as Sally (Sally Dynevor) and Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) celebrated their upcoming nuptials.
But Geoff turned nasty when Yasmeen questioned how much money he had siphoned off Speed Daal for the wedding without her permission.
Back at their house, Geoff verbally abused his wife in shocking scenes before picking up a knife and threatening to kill her.
