Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) stood up to her abusive husband Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) in Coronation Street on Friday after he bullied, berated and abused her for the best part of a year.
Yasmeen finally snapped after Geoff not only admitted to using escorts but forced his wife to wear one of the inappropriate dresses he bought for one of them to the pub.
When they got home, Geoff continued to berate his wife and as he lunged forward to attack her, she grabbed a wine bottle and struck him with it.
It’s not yet clear whether or not Geoff will pull through, but it is clear there will be consequences.
So, will Yasmeen go to jail?
Here’s what we know so far.
Will Yasmeen go to prison for killing Geoff?
Tonight Yasmeen will call 999 and tell the person on the other end that she’s killed her husband.
She is then escorted to the police station where Imran (Charlie de Melo) is told by Ryan (Ryan Prescott) what has transpired.
Scenes later this week will show her in her police cell, so it appears as though – for the time being – she is locked up.
Investigations will continue throughout this week and the police will question Yasmeen, as well as the couple’s friends about the nature of their marriage.
Alya (Sair Khan) will return from Spain and confront Yasmeen’s friends in the Rovers, telling Sally (Sally Dynevor) that she was the victim of coercive abuse and had no choice but to defend herself.
Sally already had her suspicions, as did Cathy (Melanie Hill) who previously witnessed Geoff yelling at Yasmeen.
Whether or not Yasmeen remains behind bars depends on whether or not the police believe her version of events.
Could the discovery of Geoff’s secret cameras in their house, as well as statements from those around them help exonerate Yasmeen?
Time will tell.
Coronation Street continues tonight, Monday 4 May, at 7:30pm on ITV
