Coronation Street's Geoff Metcalfe may have found a new ally tonight (July 10) in Tyrone Dobbs.
Geoff turned up to work at Speed Daal in an effort to unsettle Alya – and it appeared his plan worked.
Almost immediately, Geoff tried to goad Alya and her boyfriend Ryan Connor into an argument.
When Alya told him to leave, Geoff said he was simply trying to "rebuild his life" after suffering abuse for months.
"Abuse by my tiny, defenceless grandma?" Alya asked, to which Geoff said he now finally feels strong enough to get back to work.
But Alya and Geoff's whole exchange was overheard by Tyrone who had been enjoying a romantic meal with Fiz.
Before they left the restaurant Tyrone told Geoff: "I know what you're going through, I've been there." He explained that he had been abused by his ex partner Kirsty Soames.
"People don't believe it cause it's your missus," Tyrone added.
"I'm just over the road if you need to talk."
While it's understandable why Tyrone would want to support Geoff, many viewers were disappointed at him taking Geoff's side, unaware that it's him who's been abusing Yasmeen for months.
Damn you, Tyrone, throwing your support behind Geoff. And the rest of the street was doing so well, being on team Yasmeen... #Corrie— Sean the Mondasian Cyberman (@WhoPotterVian) July 10, 2020
Oh great now Geoff is going to reel in Tyrone 🙄 #Corrie— Charlotte K13 (@Charlotte_K13) July 10, 2020
Oh fgs Tyrone, don't be fooled! The irony is, it's the same for Yasmeen as it was for Ty; a victim made out to be the abuser BY the abuser! #Corrie— Simon Ramsay (@SARamsay1) July 10, 2020
I don’t blame Tyrone for siding with Geoff. He remembers being painted as the abuser when he was the abused so of course he’s gonna sympathise with someone he thinks is going through the same thing— Lucie (@loulouppg17) July 10, 2020
He will feel a fool later but atm it’s realistic he believes #CoronationStreet
I can’t believe Tyrone & Fiz have taken Geoffs side. I suppose it’s understandable after Kirsty #Corrie— Declan Kincaid (@KincaidDeclan) July 10, 2020
The episode ended with Geoff finally getting in contact with Yasmeen again after her stole Alya's phone.
Will Geoff be able to take back control of Yasmeen's life even while she's in prison?
