And despite coming under brutal treatment by the prosecutor, Elaine stood her ground.

“I believe that Yasmeen was fearing for her life on the night of the attack.

“Just like I’ve spent a lifetime living in fear of that man. But I’m not afraid anymore, so please stop putting words into my mouth.”

She added: “We concocted nothing, we’ve simply told our truths. There’s really nothing more to be said.”

Fans on DS Forums certainly think so, with one saying: “He’ll ‘fall’ off the roof top.”

A second insisted: “He’s being killed and most likely dumped in the Platts’ sinkhole.”

“I think he’ll end up dead – how else would Yasmeen get her house and life on the Street back, and there’s no redemption for Geoff,” said another.
