Coronation Street aired tonight (July 29) his first high-profile social distancing stunt in the world, as Gary Windass got run over by a car while trying to save his true love Sarah Platt.
But that wasn’t the only collision that took place tonight, as Tim Metcalfe came face to face with Elaine Jones, one of Geoff’s exes who told Yasmeen he had been abusive before and controlled towards her, just as he was with Yasmeen.
After hearing about Yasmeen’s heart attack, panicked Elaine told Alya that she would testify against Geoff, and even though she would be shielded by a screen, her testimony would mean that Tim would learn that he was her son and that she would. left it behind.

Elaine decided it was best to go straight to Tim and tell him the truth. She arrived at the cab office and revealed all about how she changed her name and how Geoff said she was dead and returned all the birthday presents she sent.
Sadly, but perhaps understandable, Tim thought this was all a wind-up or something that Alya had tried to set up and had Elaine leave.
Devastated by what happened and scared of what would happen if Geoff knew she was back in town, she left.

Ryan Connor thought they had lost a major help in Yasmeen’s case, but Alya was hoping she would come forward again after getting this far.
He later confronted Geoff and asked why anyone would claim such things.
Geoff will more than likely repeat the lies he’s been peddling for years, but actor Ian Bartholomew recently hinted that this would be what drives a wedge between father and son.
Coronation Street currently airing Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30 p.m. on ITV.
