The Coronation Street episode on Friday sparked 276 complaints to Ofcom as Yasmeen Nazir, played by Shelley King, retaliated against her vile husband Geoff Metcalfe, played by Ian Bartholomew.

After weeks of disgusting abuse, Yasmeen defended himself from Geoff after attacking her with a knife.

Some viewers were shocked by the violence of the scenes, and Ofcom confirmed that it had received 276 complaints about the script and was planning to investigate.

But other viewers praised the captivating screenplay and the actor’s performance, with a tweet: “It’s a shame the British soap awards don’t take place this year because Yasmeen’s screenplay would claim every prize.

“Everything was managed brilliantly down to the smallest detail. Ian and Shelley have been phenomenal all along. “

Other viewers praised the soap for dealing with an important issue and the performances of the actors

“Wow, such a powerful episode. A hard-hitting and sometimes very uncomfortable scenario to watch, practically today. But kudos to everyone involved with the scripts, filming and performances. #CoronationStreet#Corrie#Yasmeen#Geoff “Wrote another.

MirrorOnline contacted a Coronation Street representative for comment.

In recent episodes, Geoff cheated on his wife Yasmeen with prostitutes and gave her chlamydia, which he later blamed her for.

He gave her his beloved chicken to eat without telling him before and stole money from her bank account.

He also forced her to have sex after protesting, and during Friday’s episode, Yasmeen finally broke and defended herself.
