Coronation Street fans were overjoyed as Yasmeen Metcalfe was found not guilty of the attempted murder of Geoff.

Earlier this year, Yasmeen went to prison after she stabbed abusive husband Geoff in self-defence. She has been in prison ever since awaiting her trial.

In tonight’s hour long episode of Corrie (Monday, December 7), Yasmeen’s trial continued.

Coronation Street: What happened with Yasmeen in court?

After Elaine told the court that Geoff had gone to the hospital to threaten her, Imran set out to find evidence that Geoff was lying about not seeing Elaine since July.

Imran was able to find footage of Geoff walking into the hospital.

As Geoff kept his face covered he denied it was him in the video. But Imran managed to find footage of Geoff parking his car not far from the hospital. He then put on the same mask and cap that the man in the hospital footage was wearing.

Imran began to question Geoff about his visit to the hospital. Whilst the Radio DJ claimed he forgot that he went there to get some CDs, Imran started to question him about his memory on the night Yasmeen stabbed him in the neck.

But as the solicitor began to question Geoff on his abusive behaviour, Geoff ended up snapping. He soon showed his true colours, calling his wife horrible names.
