In next week’s Coronation Street, Geoff Metcalfe makes his next move to try to manipulate wife Yasmeen Nazir, and save his own skin as others have begun to suspect him.
Toyah Battersby makes a difficult confession to Leanne Battersby, who is still reeling from the news that her little son Oliver has a terminal illness.
Abi Franklin learns some devastating news about the twins, and may have to say a final goodbye.
Scheming Geoff calls Yasmeen, who is in prison, and tells her he loves her, claiming he will drop the attempted murder charges against her if she agrees to be his wife again.
He then visits the police station and tells the police officer he wants to retract his statement and drop the charges against Yasmeen.
But this was not as easy as he thought, as the officer informs him that it is up the CPS, not Geoff.
Alya Nazir, Imran Habeeb, Tim Metcalfe and Faye Windass find out about Geoff’s bizarre move and try to make sense of why he wants to drop the charges.
Yasmeen calls her granddaughter Alya and says she thinks Geoff is genuinely sorry for everything he has done.
Alya is horrified as she realises Yasmeen is considering taking her abusive husband back.
Meanwhile, Abi Franklin finds out from Kevin Webster that the twins are emigrating to Australia and is devastated.
She tells Seb Franklin, who phones social services and they tell him that the twins’ adoptive parents are happy for them to meet with the twins and say goodbye.
What will Abi do?
Finally, Toyah tells Leanne that she had plans with Imran to foster children, and they had a good chance of being accepted.
They had put their dream on hold after Oliver’s diagnosis, but Imran persuaded Toyah to broach the difficult subject with Leanne.
Leanne admits it is not ideal timing but gives her blessing.
Gary Windass continues to insist on a 30% rent hike for the factory, and Adam Barlow sweet talks Laura Neelan into telling her how she gets the money from Rick Neelan.
When Laura shows him the key to her safety deposit box, he secretly takes a picture of it on his phone.
