The mystery surrounding Tim’s mother, Tessa, will be explored in the coming months, while Yasmeen is on trial.
Yasmeen (Shelley King) was forced to defend herself after her husband Geoff pulled her back into a corner, but Geoff has since lied about what happened and said she attacked him without provocation.
And although Tim is firmly in his corner right now, he probably won’t be after hearing that he has lied about his mother all these years.
Speaking to Mirror TV and other publications last week, soap boss Iain MacLeod teased that Geoff’s past would come back to haunt him.
He said, “It would be highly unlikely that Geoff had ever committed these behaviors before.
“What we have discovered through our research is that the authors behave cyclically.
“They attract someone with love bombardments and big gestures and that gradually gives way over time. “
This suggests that Geoff has abused his former partners in the past, which probably includes Tessa – which Tim has already mentioned in a negative way.
Tessa was previously the assistant to Geoff’s magician – could he have mistreated her in the same way as Yasmeen, like locking her in the box?
Iain added, “They then move on to someone else. So it’s fair to go back to Geoff’s previous relationships and see that he’s already done so.
“We’re really going to explore the story of Geoff and Tim. This is a good opportunity to find out Tim’s family history. Lots of things on the family saga to come. “
