Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street villain Geoff Metcalfe surprises everyone next week by giving his estranged wife Yasmeen a lifeline.
Geoff (Ian Bartholomew) currently seems to be holding all the cards, as Yasmeen is awaiting trial for attempted murder after lashing out when his evil bullying pushed her to breaking point.
New spoilers on Coronation Street's official website have now revealed that Geoff will try to save Yasmeen (Shelley King) from a possible prison sentence.
Heading to the police station, Geoff announces that he'd like to retract his statement against Yasmeen and drop all charges.
This revelation leaves Alya, Faye, Tim and Ryan all stunned. Alya, in particular, knows that Geoff can't be trusted and suspects that there's more to it.
With Geoff struggling over his lack of control as Yasmeen is now so far away from him, it seems that he may have a selfish motive for wanting her back on the cobbles.
Later in the week, one of Yasmeen's fellow prisoners gives her a secret phone, allowing her to contact people on the outside whenever she wants.
This leads to Yasmeen sharing another phone conversation with Geoff, during which he tries to manipulate her further.
Will Yasmeen be fooled as Geoff tries to get back inside her head?
