Coronation Street: Ian Bartholomew ‘confirms’ Geoff Metcalfe is dead

Geoff fell off the roof of No.6

Coronation Street actor Ian Bartholomew has said goodbye to his alter ego Geoff Metcalfe after last night’s episode (Wednesday, December 9). But is Geoff dead?

In the hour-long 60th anniversary episode, Yasmeen returned to the cobbles after being found not guilty of murder.

But throughout the episode things quickly escalated when Geoff attacked Alya in Speed Daal and trapped Yasmeen in No.6 before setting the place on fire.

Seeing the blaze, Yasmeen fled upstairs. When she got into the attic, she headed out on to the roof, but was soon followed by Geoff.

As the radio DJ tried to chase down Yasmeen, Alya came out onto the roof. Yasmeen finally stood up to her abusive husband telling him she was no longer afraid of him.

Soon Geoff ended up slipping down and despite everything, Yasmeen tried to save him. But he ended up falling off the roof, into the garden of No.6.

The episode ended showing Geoff led on the floor leaving viewers wondering, is he dead?
