Coronation Street fans have been promised Geoff (played by Ian Bartholomew) will get his comeuppance after mentally abusing his wife Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King). Yasmeen hit her husband with a knife in the neck after he tormented her earlier in the year, leaving her fearing for her life. While the residents in Weatherfield turned on Yasmeen initially, slowly but surely her granddaughter Alya (Sair Khan) has managed to convince them the Speed Daal chef was the victim. With her trial getting closer, will Yasmeen walk free and how will Geoff react?
Soap boss Iain MacLeod has promised the storyline will come to a head during Corrie’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
He remarked: “For months, the nation has been gripped by the appalling abuse inflicted by Geoff Metcalfe upon his wife Yasmeen.”
Iain explained Yasmeen’s trial will take place during the anniversary week and fans will no doubt be praying she is found not guilty.
He teased: “Will justice be done or is the nightmare only just beginning for Yasmeen and Alya?”

Well, it seems Yasmeen could end up being released only to find Geoff has been killed as Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) tries to take over the street.

Over the past few months, viewers have seen Ray buy a number of businesses including The Bistro and Garage.
Most recently, he offered to buy the Platts’ house after a sink hole appeared in the garden.
