Spoilers: Geoff pushes Alya 'to breaking point' reveals Corrie star
Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) is determined to expose Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) for the abuser that is he is in Coronation Street, but doing so will prove incredibly difficult — especially as Geoff sets about reclaiming control once more.
Alya made clear that she would do whatever it takes to save Yasmeen (Shelley king) from Geoff’s clutches, and she’s followed through on such a promise thus far.
With Yasmeen recuperating in hospital, the young woman confronts Geoff (August 28), and reveals that her gran will be fighting fit and ready to take him on.
However, while she momentarily has the upper hand, Geoff manipulates and schemes next week, as he refuses to go down without a fight.
Speaking about Alya’s desire to take Geoff down, actress Sair Khan said: ‘Alya is the only family Yasmeen has on the street right now so yes Alya feels an immense pressure on her shoulders.
‘I think it’s more than just stress, it’s a very real fight to find justice and keep her family alive. As soon as one problem is sorted another one rears its ugly head. It’s all bubbling away under the surface right now but I definitely think this will push Alya to breaking point.’
Scenes next week will see Geoff turn up ay Speed Daal, and refuse to leave — in spite of Alya insisting that he vacate the premises.
He takes thing to a whole new level, when he reveals that he’s intent on applying for a liquor license — something which leaves Alya distraught.
Sair continued: ‘Alya’s wish is to look after Speed Daal, and her gran’s house at No.6, until Yasmeen is freed from prison. Frustratingly, she already lost the fight to keep Geoff out of her family home so now the business is all the Nazir’s have.
‘Alya is so angry when Geoff applies for the liquor license. He knows that Zeedan built the business from scratch and didn’t want to sell alcohol at Speed Daal which is precisely why he’s doing it, to wind Alya up.’
With Geoff back in control, Alya lashes out in a frenzy and smashes up the restaurant in scenes which Sair reveals were ‘so much fun to film’.
‘There was a small stunt element involved so I got to work with Kate Waters who is the fight arranger at Corrie’ she revealed, ‘Kate gave me some great tips on how I could physicalise Alya’s rage, in a safe way!’
What happens next remains to be seen, but Alya will no doubt attempt to reclaim control from Geoff in order to ensure he goes down for what he did.
Sair said: ‘This might be hard to believe but I genuinely don’t think Alya enjoys taunting Geoff! He just has this incredible gift where anything he says seems to boil her blood!
‘The truth is that Alya actually has a lot of power within their dynamic because she knows the genuine truth and Geoff can’t persuade her otherwise.
‘The problem is that Geoff is so unpredictable so Alya has to tread carefully around him.
‘Elaine’s revelations have undoubtedly scared Alya and she doesn’t know what else he could be capable of but despite this she can’t always stop herself from biting back at him.’
