Geoff promises to drop the charges against Yasmeen if she takes him back

The violent fight came after months of Geoff’s abusive and controlling behaviour.

But the monster quickly managed to make himself look like the victim, turning Yasmeen’s friends and family against her and leaving her to rot in prison.

But with the walls closing in on Geoff as Weatherfield’s residents side with Yasmeen one by one, Geoff decides to try another tactic in upcoming scenes.

Geoff tries to redact his statement and drop all charges against Yasmeen

Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Geoff declare his love to Yasmeen after receiving her phone call on Alya’s phone. 

Grovelling, he promises to forgive her and drop the charges against her if she agrees to come home as his wife. 

Later, Geoff calls the police station and says he wants to retract his statement and drop all charges against Yasmeen. 

But he’s irritated when the officer says that the decision will be up to the CPS. 

Alya and Ryan are horrified when Yasmeen says she thinks Geoff is genuinely sorry

Geoff and Yasmeen’s friends and family are baffled when they discover that Geoff is withdrawing charges against Yasmeen.

And Alya is horrified when Yasmeen calls her from prison and tells her she thinks Geoff is genuinely sorry for everything – and that she’s willing to take him back. 

In prison, Yasmeen’s friend Lucie urges her to call Geoff and show him who’s boss. 

During the phone call, Geoff promises that things will be different between them and that he’ll seek professional help. 

Will Yasmeen fall for his lies?

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.”
