*This article contains spoilers for next week's Coronation Street*

Coronation Street's coercive control storyline is set to hit a dramatic crescendo next week as Yasmeen fights back and bottles abusive Geoff Metcalfe after he attempts to attack her with a knife.

Geoff Metcalfe's controlling behaviour towards Yasmeen Nazin has seen a slow build up since the characters married last year, after the radio DJ (played by Ian Bartholomew) tricked Yasmeen (Shelley King) into tying the knot.

Over the months, Yasmeen has become a shell of her former self - isolated from her from her friends and family, constantly belittled and taken advantage of, both emotionally and financially.

But things are soon set to come to a head, as a brand new spoiler shows Yasmeen will finally fight back.

In new spoilers pictures of scenes set to air next week, Geoff can be seen waving a knife at Yasmeen as she shrieks in terror.

Yasmeen is then pictured picking up a wine bottle to defend herself. But, feeling terrified and "like a wounded animal" she instinctively hits him with it - slashing his neck with the broken glass.

While we don't know what will become of Geoff, Yasmeen clearly fears the worst after her husband collapses to the floor, and she is set to call 999 and tell the operator she killed him.

But is Geoff dead? And if so, will anybody believe she's the victim?

In recent weeks, viewers have seen Yasmeen preparing to leave Geoff, and even packing a secret bag to make her getaway.

But what she didn't know was that Geoff has installed a secret camera and has been watching her plan, causing him to start starving her in a bid to regain control.

In next week's episodes, Geoff is set to continue to abuse Yasmeen, depriving her of food after she discovers he has given her a sexually transmitted disease.

When they are invited on a night out by Sally and Tim he forces Yasmeen to wear a dress he had originally bought for an escort, leaving her feeling demeaned and embarrassed.

And it's when he doesn't offer her any food back at home - taunting her by eating in front of her - that she snaps.

Shelley added that the upcoming scenes were some of the hardest she had filmed during the storyline.

"There have been many very difficult scenes throughout this storyline but just the technical aspect of a scene like this means that something you see that just plays out for three minutes might take the whole day to film," she said.

"During that time you have to concentrate and stay in the moment. Ian and I are very close, we are great friends and we understand each other.

"During the day and a half that we concentrated on the portrayal of that horror we had to keep in the moment, barely talking outside the scene.

"It was also a closed set. You have to contact so many things in yourself, when you have three minutes filmed over a day and half you have no recovery time and you can't afford to joke and laugh. Every single person on set understood and were amazing and were concentrating on making those moments happen."

The episode which airs on Friday 1st May, and will leave viewers wondering if Geoff's reign of terror is finally over, or whether the drama is only just beginning for poor Yasmeen.

If you've been affected by any of the issues raised in Yasmeen and Geoff's story, ITV offer a helpful advice page. When it comes to reporting abuse, you can call the National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247, or if it is not safe to do so, visit the organisation's website and discreetly fill out a form.

For those in immediate danger, and in need of a 'silent solution', calling 999 and dialling in the number 55 will also alert the authorities you need help.
