Due to the lockdown, UK soaps have suspended filming, meaning actors can change up their hair.

As a result of the coronavirus, weekly episodes of Corrie have been reduced from six down to three.

However, there’s plenty of good storylines to look forward to.

What storylines are happening in next week’s Coronation Street?

Geoff and Yasmeen

In next week’s episodes, Geoff and Yasmeen end up in a violent scuffle.

After discovering Yasmeen has tested positive for chlamydia, Geoff accuses her of cheating. But when she brings up that he’s been meeting escorts, he’s furious and declares she got the STI from her ex-husband Sharif.

Later in the week, Geoff forces her to wear a dress she’s clearly uncomfortable in to the Bistro reopening. When Yasmeen learns Geoff is paying for Sally and Tim’s wedding she’s shocked.

When they return home, he cruelly says the dress was originally for one of his escorts.

But when Yasmeen grabs a bottle of wine, a struggle ensues and Geoff slumps to the floor.
