Yasmeen (played by Shelley King) is slowly having all aspects of her life controlled by partner Geoff (Ian Bartholomew).
The most recent episode of Coronation Street saw her open up somewhat about how “smothered” she feels, but her friend Cathy Matthews (Melanie Hill) didn’t pay much mind to her comments.
Yasmeen headed out to Roy’s Rolls for lunch with Cathy on her own although Geoff had wanted to go with her on the ITV soap.
But as Yasmeen began to discuss how Geoff was already around, Cathy told her she was “lucky”.
Yasmeen went on to share: ”Although I do feel a bit, well, smothered is the wrong word but he does want us to do everything together.
“Since the burglary he’s gotten very protective. I do want to do things myself, I had to stop him joining us for lunch.”
Cathy asked Yasmeen whether she’d like to partner up with Brian Packham (Peter Gunn) for Ken’s bridge club which would allow her a bit of freedom.
Later on, Yasmeen excitedly told Geoff she’d joined the bridge club and was to be partnered up with Brian.
However, he quickly claimed that bridge was his favourite game and he wanted to join the club too.
Poor Yasmeen clearly didn’t want him to be part of it but feeling as though she had no choice, she obliged.

Those watching at home took to Twitter to express their disgust at Geoff over his actions as he denied Yasmeen this new bit of freedom.
“Geoff trying to control Yasmeen again… #Corrie,” one wrote.
While another shared: “Manipulative Geoff strikes again #Corrie.”
“My heart breaks for Yasmeen, she needs to get out of this asap. I’m sobbing,” a third commented.
“Is it really that easy for strong women of sound mind to be gaslit and brainwashed so quickly like this? A serious question and not a facetious one… if so, that’s pretty scary. Poor Yasmeen..” a fourth opined.
Sadly for Yasmeen, things are only set to get worse as Geoff puts a new plan in place.
In order to spy on Yasmeen further, Geoff is set to instal CCTV in her home.
Yasmeen is disturbed to find the cameras set up in her home while Geoff accuses her of not considering his feelings.
He tells her it’s finished between them but it seems as though their story is far from over.
Coronation Street continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on ITV.
