Corrie boss Iain MacLeod said: "The timelines have been shunted due to the lockdown but I think it's fair to imagine that it will be this year.

"What form that comeuppance is is in discussion."

He added: "We wanted a redemptive ending for Yasmeen obviously and the toughest it's going to get for her is over the next months.

"It's towards the end of the year but the key thing is to impart the right message.

"For the sake of the people it has impacted we have to tell the right ending with some positivity."

What will happen to Geoff in Coronation Street?

Corrie worked very closely with domestic abuse charities to make sure Yasmeen's story was told as accurately as possible.

In doing their research, the ITV team discovered that "perpetrators have a cyclical pattern of behaviour".

"It would be highly unlikely that Geoff had never committed these behaviours previously," Iain explained.

"We will really explore Geoff and Tim's backstory. It's a good opportunity to find out about Tim's family background.

"Lots of family saga stuff to come."

This could very well mean that the truth about Tim's mother Tessa.

Although she has never appeared in Corrie before, Geoff has hinted that she was abusive towards him.

However, actor Ian has hinted that the truth is quite the opposite.

"On the face of it it’s very straightforward," he said.

"But I think because he has kept the details of the relationship with Tim’s mother as his own version, it has been airbrushed and is always from Geoff’s point of view.

"Tim only knows his mother from Geoff’’s point of view. There is a whole wealth of stuff to explore."

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
