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.

Finally they've realised that Geoff isn't the man he has made himself out to be.

"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.
