Coronation Street 'to build a courtroom' for Geoff and Yasmeen finale amid location filming ban

Yasmeen is currently in prison and could be awaiting a trial

Coronation Street could be building a courtroom set for Geoff and Yasmeen's upcoming scenes as filming on location is banned.

At the moment, Yasmeen is in prison for stabbing her abusive husband geoff in the neck. In recent scenes, she plead not guilty to attempted murder meaning there is a huge change we will see the case go to trial in court.

However due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming on location has been banned and cast and crew must keep a two metre distance from each other.

ITV's Head of Soaps and Continuing Drama John Whiston added: "What's fantastic is that we have our own craft shop and our own design department.
