The radio DJ, played by Ian Bartholomew, told the police that Yasmeen had attacked him in the past – failing to tell them that he had in fact abused her.
But he seems ready to go further by manipulating his own son Tim.
Speaking to the Radio Times, actor Ian suggested that Geoff’s relationship with Tim could get particularly grim.
He said: “Geoff sees that Alya poses a threat but believes that he can handle it.
“The person he needs to stay in touch is his son Tim. If he convinces him what he says is right, he can spread the word on behalf of Geoff throughout the community.
“What Alya says will then sound like sour grapes and anxiety for her baby. “
It comes after ITV soap opera producer Iain MacLeod confirmed that Geoff will not be bought out and will get his comeuppance – although it probably won’t happen before the end of the year.
He told Mirror TV and other media last week: “The deadlines were bypassed as a result of the lockout and things like that. But I think it is fair to imagine that it will certainly be this year, we think.
“What form of comeuppance it takes is still under discussion. What we wanted to make sure in telling the story was that it was ultimately some sort of redemptive ending for Yasmeen.
“She’s in the thick of it now and the hardest part of it going to be right now. But the end is a bit offbeat – it’s going to be towards the end of the year. And the key thing that we are we are going to see how we can get the right message out at the end of this story.
“As I said, there has been a very disturbing and moving correspondence with me and with Ian and Shelley and for the good of these people, we have to make sure to say the good ending which has a certain positivity and a certain optimism. .
“So it’s the most important thing in our thinking right now, it’s a bit far for the moment. “
