Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) is still hanging around Coronation Street like a bad smell – and it seems like someone else is about to be pulled into his vicious web as he is revealed to have a new love interest. Is he lining up a new victim?
Geoff is deliberately being a thorn in Alya Nazir’s (Sair Khan) side when she asks him to sell up the house so that Yasmeen (Shelley King) can get her half for her legal fees for the trial.
But as Geoff winds Alya up, he makes it completely clear than he has no intention of selling, which winds her up. But before long, Alya can tell that there is something that Geoff is hiding so she and Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) decide to follow him.
When Imran Habeeb (Charlie de Melo) suggests to Alya they might have to sell Yasmeen’s house to pay her legal fees, Gary’s (Mikey North) quick to chip in and offers to put them in touch with a developer.
Alya runs a credit check on Yasmeen and is shocked to see a series of unpaid loans against her name.
Yasmeen admits that Geoff most likely duped her into signing the forms and not only that, but she signed half the house over to him too.
Imran reckons the only way they can fund Yasmeen’s trial is if they can persuade Geoff to sell the house and use Yasmeen’s share of the money. Alya gets to work on Geoff but he is soon playing games.
Geoff enjoys winding Alya up and it’s soon apparent he has no intention of selling the house.
Alya quizzes him about the loans, he points the finger of blame at Yasmeen and her expensive tastes but Alya isn’t fooled. In a bid to find out what he’s done with the money, Alya and Ryan resolve to follow Geoff and see what he’s up to.
Having overheard Geoff on the phone arranging a date, Alya resolves to follow him. However she’s taken aback to discover his date is a little old lady called Doris from hospital radio.
As a police officer approaches and warns Alya that Geoff has made a complaint about her for harassment, Geoff meets up with his new girlfriend in a swanky hotel, pleased to have got one over Alya. But for how long can Geoff remain smug? And how much danger is his new girlfriend in?
