Coronation Street's Geoff and Yasmeen storyline sparks more than 100 Ofcom complaints
Coronation Street's Geoff and Yasmeen storyline has sparked more than 100 Ofcom complaints.
Harrowing scenes over the last few months have seen Geoff isolate Yasmeen from her friends and family, with his actions having been - so far - undetected by their neighbours.
Television watchdog Ofcom has confirmed to The Sun that the storyline has sparked 146 complaints across four episodes.
Among the upsetting episodes was one that aired in early February, where Geoff locked Yasmeen in a box for hours after one of this magic tricks had gone wrong. There were 74 complaints about the episode.
It comes as Alya Nazir is set to get closer to discovering Geoff's abuse after she hears that her grandmother, Yasmeen, has been spotted crying in the garden while feeding her chickens.
Geoff decides to be evasive when confronted by Alya, but it isn't long before her interest is spiked - and she calls on Yasmeen, asking her to go for a stroll.
Alya tells her that it's clear there's something that's wrong. But will Yasmeen be able to come clean about what has been going on?
Meanwhile, Geoff begins to worry that he may have pushed Yasmeen too far - and he panics, rushing home to look for her passport. After Yasmeen returns home, he tells her that he wouldn't be able to cope without her - and that he was so worried she had left him.
