Geoff's up to his old tricks in next week's Coronation Street, but what sickening plan has he got up his sleeve for Yasmeen this time?

Geoff Metcalfe's coercive behaviour takes a sinister new twist in next week's Coronation Street when he tells the police that he would like to retract his statement against wife Yasmeen.

But what is he up to?

Coronation Street fans will know that Geoff (Ian Bartholomew) has been abusing wife Yasmeen (Shelley King) for the last year.

Thanks to Yasmeen's granddaughter, Alya, Yasmeen has realised she is the victim in all of this, and gave a not guilty plea to the court during her hearing.

But as Yasmeen now faces the fight of her life as she prepares to persuade the court that she is the innocent party, Geoff has had a change of tact and next week sees a new twist in the storyline.

Geoff's new plan 

As Geoff's mission to manipulate Yasmeen further continues, he heads to the police station.

The official ITV website for Coronation Street states: "Geoff calls at the station and explains that he'd like to retract his statement and drop all charges against Yasmeen."

As the new development leaves Alya and Ryan suspicious of Geoff's games, Tim and Faye are also surprised at the sudden turn of events.

But that's not the end of Geoff's twisted plan...
