Coronation Street abuser Geoff Metcalfe ‘set for prison’ as evil plan backfires

Coronation Street 's Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) could soon be exposed for secretly abusing his wife Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) behind closed doors, and all because his evil plot could backfire.

Coronation Street spoilers have revealed that Geoff will continue to isolate his wife from her friends and family, using her back injury as an excuse to keep her indoors.

He will also push for her granddaughter Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) to sell her portion of Speed Daal over to Yasmeen, and therefore to him as he has control over all of her money and assets.

But it looks like Yasmeen will finally see Geoff's true colours once and for all when she discovers the secret camera in the living room.

Back in August, Geoff installed CCTV cameras around the house, with Yasmeen returning home one day to find that Geoff was increasing the security in their house.

This came after the house was supposedly robbed, with an unknown thief taking photographs and a jewellery box, but viewers know it was Geoff himself.

In reality, Geoff had installed the cameras to keep an eye on his unsuspecting wife, with actor Ian confirming it was "to watch her every move".

When Yasmeen discovered the cameras, she was horrified and told him that she didn't want them, but he then accused her of not thinking about her feelings.

He then took all but one camera down, leaving one in the living room, which he has been using to watch Yasmeen behind her back.

But it looks like Geoff's plan could put him in prison if the cameras are discovered, as Sarah Jane Lenihan, a partner at Stowe Family Law LLP, revealed that it could be used as evidence of controlling behaviour.

She told "It is actually a criminal offence to set up a hidden camera in any property where the individual would expect to have privacy. The perpetrator may therefore find themselves being investigated for this offence too.

"I have however found in cases I have dealt with that these secret cameras can be used as evidence of controlling and or coercive behaviour and the footage obtained from them can actually be helpful to support the victim’s case."

She added: "In domestic abuse trials the use of CCTV can be used to evidence behaviour which may otherwise not be available to establish so easily."

Could the cameras end up putting Geoff in prison once they are discovered?

Corrie continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
