Evil Geoff Metcalfe’s abusive past was exposed on tonight’s Coronation Street.
Corrie viewers were sickened by grim details – and pointed out Yasmeen will have to endure more pain because of coronavirus.
The twisted pensioner, who has been coercively controlling wife Yasmeen for months, was charged with causing affray.
Worried Alya Nazir was digging dirt on her nasty step-grandfather online and discovered police were called to a ‘domestic incident’ in a pub.
The online news story, from five years ago, stated that a fight between Geoff and a past girlfriend had spilled out onto the street.
It read: “Geoff Metcalfe (65) and Jocelyn Walkey (60) were charged with affray after an alleged incident at the Ellington arms in Manchester.
“Police attended the scene following reports of a domestic incident.
“Witness at the scene say that pub landlady Jo Hammersley called the police when the alleged fight spilled out onto the street.”
Panicking Alya told Ryan that she thought Geoff had pushed his ex-girlfriend too far and she cracked.
In a bid to get Geoff away from her gran, Alya rushed over to their house, but was not allowed inside by a terrified Yasmeen.
Trembling Yasmeen reluctantly agreed to let her granddaughter in for five minutes to stop her causing a scene on the doorstep.
Alya confessed she was frightened for her gran and could not protect her in Cyprus.
Yasmeen urged her to leave when she heard Geoff coming through the door, but defiant Alya refused to go anywhere.
Coronation Street fans are very concerned that Geoff will stick around for much longer now because of coronavirus.
With Corrie going down to just three episodes a week, viewers took to Twitter to point out Yasmeen’s ordeal will go on for much longer.
One viewer said: “With Corrie going down to two episodes a week Geoff’s going to be around for ages yet”
“With #Corrie going down to two weekly episodes that means longer to put up with Geoff,” added another.
A third said: “My tolerances are dropping thanks to the stress of #coronavirus and bloody Geoff on #Corrie is tipping me over the edge”
It was announced earlier today that Corrie and Emmerdale have decided to reduce the amount of episodes they air each week.
The move to show only three episodes from the cobbles and five from the Dales each week comes in a bid to keep them on air for as long as possible.
A statement from ITV today read: “The continued transmission of both soaps is a priority to all of us at ITV and to our audiences who enjoy the shows.
“Whilst carefully adhering to the latest health advice from the Government and Public Health England, our production teams are continuing to film episodes in Manchester and Leeds.
“With this change of transmission pattern it will ensure we have great new soap episodes coming to air every weekday night until at least the early summer.
“With effect from Monday 30 March Coronation Street and Emmerdale’s scheduling pattern will be changing due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Emmerdale will air Monday to Friday at 7pm and Coronation Street Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm.”
*Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV at 7.30pm
