Coronation Street has got a big birthday coming up in December...
Coronation Street will be celebrating its 60th anniversary at the end of the year... and to celebrate fans have got some huge storylines to look forward to.
A 60th birthday to remember
It has been revealed that the soap's anniversary at the start of December will coincide with Yasmeen Metcalfe's (Shelley King) trial for attempted murder.
Viewers will know that Yasmeen is currently in prison waiting for her trial to begin.
Yasmeen attacked Geoff with a broken bottle in self defence after months of coercive abuse from her husband.
But while everyone instantly assumed Yasmeen was guilty, the scales have started falling from people's eyes.
Finally they've realised that Geoff isn't the man he has made himself out to be.
With his family turning against him and the court case looming, it seems Geoff's days on the cobbles could be numbered.
Could one of Geoff's new-found enemies bump him off in dramatic style for the soap's 60th anniversary episodes?
Ian admits things don't look good for Geoff
"Now that Tim is in the picture, I think we have to view this as the beginning of the end for Geoff," said the actor.
"The more out of control he feels, the less in control he behaves - and I don't think it will end well, whatever happens.
"We love to hate a baddie, and see someone like Geoff get his comeuppance, so I suspect that he will.
"Let's be honest - Geoff is going to get it!"
Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV- see our TV Guide for full listings.

Claire is Assistant Managing Editor at What To Watch and has been a journalist for over 15 years, writing about everything from soaps and TV to beauty, entertainment, and even the Royal Family. After starting her career at a soap magazine, she ended up staying for 13 years, and over that time she’s pulled pints in the Rovers Return, sung karaoke in the Emmerdale village hall, taken a stroll around Albert Square, and visited Summer Bay Surf Club in sunny Australia.
After learning some tricks of the trade at websites Digital Spy, Entertainment Daily, and Woman & Home, Claire landed a role at What’s On TV and whattowatch.com writing about all things TV and film, with a particular love for Aussie soaps, Strictly Come Dancing and Bake Off.
She’s interviewed everyone from June Brown — AKA Dot Cotton — to Michelle Keegan, swapped cooking tips with baking legend Mary Berry backstage at the NTAs, and danced the night away with soap stars at countless awards bashes.
