Corrie viewers know that manipulative Geoff managed to convince everyone that Yasmeen was the abusive one in their relationship in the wake of her arrest for his attempted murder.
But things have been falling apart for the abuser recently as cracks began to show in his story.
Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Alya ask Sally – who witnessed suspicious events as Geoff’s neighbour – to be a witness for the defence.
Before agreeing, Sally decides that she needs to visit Yasmeen in prison and hear her side of the story.
Sally is stunned and saddened by what Yasmeen tells her, and can’t help but challenge Geoff when she returns home.
Tim is shocked when he walks in to find his dad raging and Sally looking terrified.
Has Geoff revealed his true colours to his son?
Meanwhile, with everything crumbling around him, Geoff applies for a prison visit to see Yasmeen.
Later in the week, Geoff returns to work at Speed Daal – much to Alya’s dismay.
When Alya gets a call from Imran, Geoff listens in and overhears Alya saying she’s expecting a call from Yasmeen in the afternoon.
Spotting an opportunity to manipulate Yasmeen, a conniving Geoff sneakily steals Alya’s phone while she’s not looking and receives the phone call from Yasmeen.
At the other end of the line, Yasmeen is horrified to hear her abuser’s voice.
Will Geoff scare her into keeping quiet?
Corrie producer Ian MacLeod has already confirmed that Geoff will meet his downfall this year.
He previously said: “What form that comeuppance takes is still in discussion. We wanted a redemptive ending ultimately for Yasmeen.”
Adding that he, Ian and Shelley had been in correspondence with real-life abuse victims, Ian continued: “For the sake of all those people, we have to tell the right ending with some positivity and optimism.”
