Coronation Street fans furious as Eileen ignores Geoff abusing Yasmeen

Yasmeen finally fought back last night - but Eileen could have saved her

Coronation Street fans are furious Eileen Grimshaw ignored Yasmeen being abused after witnessing Geoff Metcalfe shout at her and lock her in the house.

Cab controller Eileen looked horrified as she heard Yasmeen forced to beg her abusive husband for forgiveness after questioning how he stole money from her business.

He had grandly announced in the Rovers that he was going to pay for son Tim and daughter in law Sally’s wedding.

A confused Yasmeen asked him how he was funding it given he keeps her on a short-financial leash.

Geoff told her he had taken money out of her business Speed Daahl and left her confused, and he seized the chance to get her out of public to abuse her in private.

Dragging her home, he hectored her in the street not realising Eileen had overheard as Yasmeen begged for forgiveness.

She then watched stunned as Geoff locked a whimpering Yasmeen in the house and walked off.

The look on Eileen’s face said it all but she didn’t actually do anything and instead watched it all unfold and then continued to the pub.

And even in the pub she only said that she had seen them row, mentioning nothing of the abuse.
