Shelley also explained the reason for the pair’s attraction towards each other and the reason Geoff chose her over Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls), who was also pining over him.
She said: “He’s a charming man, he knows how to talk to women to make them feel good. Audrey was attracted to him. He is polite.
“He chose Yasmeen because she is intelligent and she is alone like him. He was attracted to Audrey but Audrey has too many people around her that she is close to that might have stood in the way.
“Alya is all Yasmeen has and she is caught up in her own life. She was the clever choice for him, she is well off and he liked showing her off.”
Will Yasmeen be able to escape Geoff’s abuse in upcoming episodes or will she return home to something even worse?
Coronation Street continues on Monday at 7.30pm on ITV
