GEOFF Metcalfe’s ex partner Elaine decides to take to the stand to give evidence against him in court next week in Coronation Street.
Here’s the lowdown on what’s happening next week on the ITV soap…
As the day of her trial arrives this Friday (July 24), Yasmeen suffers a devastating setback when she’s hospitalised following a heart attack.
Yasmeen’s devoted granddaughter Alya visits her in hospital and tells her that her trial has been postponed until she’s well enough to attend.
Alya then sets out to track down the mysterious newcomer Elaine in the hope that she’ll agree to give evidence against Geoff in court.
Later, Alya is thrilled to receive a call from Elaine pledging to take to the stand to give evidence against Geoff in court.
Elaine also makes clear her disgust when Alya mentions that Geoff’s son Tim is still on his dad’s side.
Elaine sets out on a mission of her own and tracks down Tim to tell him about Geoff’s true colours.
Later, Geoff does his best to convince Tim that Elaine is another liar – along with most of the women of Weatherfield.
His lies seem to do the trick, and Tim promises to report Elaine to the police if she tries to get in touch again – much to the delight of Geoff.
But have Elaine’s words made a secret impact on Tim?
When Tim tells Sally about Elaine’s visit, she tries her best to get Tim to see that Geoff is a monster.
Later, Alya is horrified when she realises that Elaine might be planning to leave Weatherfield before the trial begins.
Alya frantically searches for Elaine to beg her to stay – but will she succeed?
