Coronation Street villain Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) is trying to cover all angles to avoid the truth about his abuse surfacing but it looks like time is running out. Fans of the ITV soap are desperate for him to be exposed for the monster he is but he’s managed to wriggle his way out of justice every time.
On Wednesday, his wife Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King), took the first step to acknowledging her abuse by pleading “not guilty” at her plea hearing.
The restauranteur is facing a lengthy prison sentence for accidentally stabbing her husband in the neck in self-defence, after a blazing row turned nasty.
Her admission was welcomed by her granddaughter Alya Nazir (Sair King), who has been fighting from the start for Yasmeen to realise what’s been happening.
And it looks like her message has finally got through to her troubled grandmother.

But that was just the first step on a long road to justice.
When he heard about her plea, the villain was horrified, worried that those who already suspected him – mainly Alya, her boyfriend Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott), Geoff’s daughter-in-law Sally Metcalfe (Sally Dynevor) – would start to piece together exactly what went on leading up to that fateful night.
Especially because he lied about what went down between him and Yasmeen.
And just as viewers were ready to give up all hope, a beacon of light shone bright.
Fans know what started the fight that ended up with Geoff being hospitalised, was his adultery and use of escorts.
After teasing, degrading and making Yasmeen wear a dress he had bought for one of the ladies he sees regularly, she finally stood up for herself.
But Geoff painted a very different picture of that night, landing his other-half in jail.
Despite this, the police have started to have their suspicions that there’s more to this story than meets the eye.

After the plea hearing, Geoff was forced to come forward and confess he used an escort service behind his wife’s back, leaving his family disgusted.
Trying to keep one step ahead, he went to the police to admit to his adultery, but they saw through his confession as an attempt to save himself from the humiliation in court.
They then asked him to go over once more the chain of events that happened that night.
Police are specially trained to notice inconsistencies in details of a story, and low and behold they might have identified something here.
