What did fans think of Yasmeen’s trial?

Earlier this year, Yasmeen went to prison after she stabbed abusive husband Geoff in self-defence.

However, on Monday night’s episode (December 7) closing statements were heard in court. The jury consequently found Yasmeen not guilty of the attempted murder of Geoff.

After months of waiting to see if Yasmeen would get off or not, fans rushed to social media to share their thoughts.


“THANK GOD, I don’t know what I’d have done if she was found guilty!!!” tweeted a second viewer.

While a third exclaimed: “Get in!!! #Corrie”

Coronation Street continues on Wednesday, December 9 at 7.30pm.
