New pictures reveal a dramatic rooftop confrontation between Yasmeen and Geoff during Coronation Street's 60th anniversary episode tonight. 

The images show Yasmeen Metcalfe on the roof of a house with her granddaughter Alya Nazir.

The pair are stranded after being pursued by Geoff Metcalfe, who has set fire to the house after giving Yasmeen the keys so she can collect her belongings.

Geoff attempts to confront Yasmeen on the rooftop after being attacked by Alya.

Yasmeen, who is played by Shelley King, was found not guilty of the attempted murder of her abusive husband Geoff (Ian Bartholomew) on Monday.

The police have been investigating her claims of being coercively controlled by Geoff.

Speaking about the showdown between Yasmeen and Geoff King said: "Yasmeen knows that Geoff is capable of anything, when he sees red his mood changes and she has grown to fear that change before it even happens.

"His anger can result in huge violence without logic at all." 

Stunt doubles were used for some of the shots, however the actors filmed the majority of the scenes themselves.

A duplicate roof was built and a green screen was used to recreate the house's background.

The actors, stunt doubles and stunt coordinators had to self isolate and undergo regular coronavirus testing throughout the two-week shoot.

Speaking about being part of such a big storyline on the 60th anniversary of the long-running soap King said: "I feel so privileged and honoured that Ian, I and the Nazir family have been given the responsibility of exploring this storyline.

"I feel very humbled, I hope we've done it justice and I hope it’s made people aware of what may be going on around them and the need not to shut the door on a problem.

She added: "I've been very lucky to work with Corrie legends like Malcolm Hebden, Barbara Knox, Eileen Derbyshire, Sue Nicholls, all the people I’ve been watching ever since I came to this country just before my 10th birthday.

"It’s epic and I still feel overjoyed and so privileged to be part of it. Jane Danson is doing an absolutely extraordinary job right now, the male suicide with Shayne Ward was brilliantly done as was David’s rape with Jack Shepherd.

"There’s also so many great young actors coming through, Colson I’ve watched grow up, Mollie who plays Nina, Sam and Ellie.

"Then there’s the exquisite Sally Dynevor who I admire hugely and love working with."
