It looks like Coronation Street fans will finally see the Geoff and Yasmeen Metcalfe storyline reach an explosive climax as the characters are set to face off in court.

Corrie bosses recently revealed that the trial will take place during the iconic soap's 60th Anniversary week.

Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) will finally have the chance for justice as she will stand trial after being accused of attempting to murder her evil husband Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew).

Viewers saw how twisted Geoff mentally abused his long-suffering wife for months, and after he threatened her with a knife, she stabbed him with a smashed glass bottle in self defence.

Coronation Street announced that the nail-biting trial will happen in the show's 60th anniversary week, so the long-running abuse storyline will seemingly come to an end.

A spokesperson said: "For months the nation has been gripped by the appalling abuse inflicted by Geoff Metcalfe upon his wife Yasmeen.

"With Yasmeen on remand charged with Geoff's attempted murder, the anniversary week will see the end of her trial.

"Will justice be done or is the nightmare only just beginning for Yasmeen and Alya?"

Yasmeen has been in prison now for months, and she recently admitted to her granddaughter Alya (Sair Khan) that she would rather stay locked up as she feels safe from evil Geoff behind bars.

Geoff's family have finally seen the horrible character's true colours, so will the court see through his lies too?

Fans will have to wait until the 60th anniversary to see the trial reach its verdict.
