Yasmeen gets a helping hand

Next week will see Yasmeen's cell mate, Lucie (Nicola Duffett) give her a book about coercive control.

Lucie is adamant that Yasmeen needs to break free from controlling Geoff, and hopes the book will open her eyes to what has been going on in her relationship.

But Lucie's efforts come at the same time Geoff has been trying to control Yasmeen from the other end of the phone.

While Yasmeen has known for months that she is being abused, it has taken a while for her to put her ordeal into words.

Yasmeen's surprise visitor 

The official website for Coronation Street has revealed that she is also set to get a surprise visitor at the prison...

"Yasmeen gets a visit from a woman who previously claimed she was from a charity, but is then shocked to discover the real truth."

But if the woman who has come to visit isn't from a charity, who is she? And why is she visiting Yasmeen in jail?

The website continues: "Later, when telling Imran about what she found out, Yasmeen collapses."
