Geoff Metcalfe from Coronation Street hired an escort yesterday (March 18) after lashing out at Yasmeen Nazir, in startling scenes. Tonight’s episodes saw Alya finally do a web search on Geoff to try to locate evidence to prove her allegations about him, to she discovered out he and a previous partner named Jocelyn Barrie had been charged with causing an affray five years earlier.
Alya told Yasmeen about this when Geoff was on the estate agents, and Yasmeen asked about the incident in the second episode. Geoff said he wasn’t going to get angry, but it didn’t take long for him to start screaming at Yasmeen and throw her food on the floor.
He ordered her not to wait for him, then stormed her out and left her in tears. Instead, we saw him with an escort in a restaurant which he had booked named Rachel.
Yasmeen will soon try to avoid Geoff’s control, but unfortunately, the story of coercive domination takes another dark turn.
Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Corrie has confirmed that they will not shoot kissing scenes to “minimize contact.” However, both the soap and Emmerdale have shortened the weekly number of episodes, so they don’t run out on a reduced production schedule.
