Elsewhere on the cobbles, fans have watched in horror over the last couple of months as Geoff Metcalfe’s (Ian Bartholemew) abuse of wife Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) has gotten more and more sinister.
Earlier in the week, Geoff convinced Yasmeen to stay at home and rest after she injured her back, and when Geoff returned home from working a shift in the restaurant he demanded dinner.
When Yasmeen couldn’t offer him anything he fancied Geoff yelled: “No, I’ll do it like I do everything else around this place, except look after your precious chickens. Get upstairs! Give me some space, I’ll call you when I’m ready.”
With Yasmeen out of sight, viewers were astounded when Geoff went outside to get Yasmeen’s beloved pet chicken Charlotte Bronte which he later served to her for their dinner.
But when will the abuse end and will Yasmeen get out alive?
