Viewers know that Tim witnessed a string of suspicious events ahead of Yasmeen’s arrest that should have alerted him to Geoff’s abuse.
Tim found Yasmeen locked in Geoff’s magic box when he popped round to the house and heard her crying out.
He also walked in on Geoff deleting footage from his laptop of his final argument with Yasmeen – and didn’t say a word despite catching a glimpse of the footage.
But next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Tim finally turn against his dad after Geoff rocks up at Speed Daal and starts terrorising Alya.
When Alya orders him to get out, Geoff points out that legally he has every right to be there and that she’d better get used to him being around.
Geoff then irritates Alya further when he announces he’s applied for an alcohol license.
Alya points out that he needs Yasmeen’s permission, but clearly to no avail as later she’s furious to find an alcohol delivery on the doorstep of Speed Daal
Later, Geoff decides to sabotage the restaurant by cancelling staff shifts, which leaves Alya struggling to cope with takeout order on her own.
Disaster strikes when she flies into a rage, throwing everyone out of the restaurant and smashing it up.
When Geoff and Tim arrive, Geoff is quick to play the victim.
But when Ryan tells Tim that Geoff has been undermining Alya for months, Tim starts to doubt his dad’s innocence.
Later, Tim finally sides against his dad and tells Sally about the CCTV camera.
Sally is horrified and tells Tim to open his eyes and see Geoff for the monster he is.
Have Sally’s words finally sunk in for Tim?
And will he go to the police with the evidence he’s witnessed proving Yasmeen’s innocence?
Speaking about Joe Duttine – who plays Tim – has teased that his character is getting closer to turning against his dad Geoff as Yasmeen’s trial looms.
Speaking to Inside Soap, the actor said: “Remember that Tim isn’t aware of what the rest of the nation knows about Geoff.
“Tim only reacts to the interactions he has with his dad, and he doesn’t want to believe that he could do anything wrong. Some families have to close ranks and protect their own, which is what Tim is doing. But I think Tim is starting to feel as if something isn’t quite right.”
The actor added: “Tim will see cracks in the picture he has of Geoff.”
“It’s a slow burn, and Tim’s remaining loyal to his dad until the stage he can no longer do so. We may be getting closer to that stage.”
