You've ruined it all. You clumsy, oafish bitch.
~ Geoff to Yasmeen.

Geoffrey "Geoff" Metcalfe is a fictional character in the British ITV Soap Opera Coronation Street.

He is the father of Tim Metcalfe, the paternal grandfather of Faye Windass, the maternal great-grandfather of Miley, the husband of Yasmeen, the step-father of Kal and the step-grandfather of Alya and Zeedan.

Introduced as primarily a comic relief character, Geoff later became the main antagonist in 2020, as he began abusing and manipulating his wife Yasmeen, and attempted to control every aspect of her life.

He was portrayed by Ian Bartholomew.

Biography

Geoff was a hospital radio DJ. He later moved to Coronation Street to be nearer to his family. After Pat Phelan's death, Geoff began dating Yasmeen Nazir.

As Geoff and Yasmeen's relationship progressed, he began to show a more sinister side to his personality by controlling every aspect of her life by secretly hiding cameras around her house and staging a burglary to ensure that she was more reliant on him.

Yasmeen's granddaughter Alya began to take a disliking to Geoff, but by this time he had manipulated the situation to ensure that she moved out of the house and even bought into the family business Speed Daal to prevent her from overruling his control.

On February 3, 2020, Geoff reached a new low after he and Yasmeen do a magic show which goes viral. Yasmeen got her clothes caught in the box, and Geoff later shoved a phone camera in her face and claimed she was getting revenge on him. He also called her a selfish bitch. Geoff later locked Yasmeen in the box as punishment, but she was later freed by Geoff's son Tim.

Later on in the month, Geoff sunk to a disgusting new low as he killed Yasmeen's pet chicken as revenge for her not cooking a good dinner for him. When he was confronted about it, Geoff blamed Yasmeen for the chicken's death.

He later attacked Yasmeen with a knife after they returned from The Rovers Return pub whilst also admitting to meeting with escorts behind her back. In self defence, Yasmeen hits Geoff with a wine bottle, which broke and badly cut Geoff. A horrfied Yasmeen called 999 and claimed to have killed Geoff. As Yasmeen was arrested, Geoff was later revealed to have survived the attack and claimed that he was arguing with Yasmeen over her "drinking" problem and that she attacked him unprovoked. Tim believed this statement. Alya confronted Geoff at the hospital and declared that Yasmeen (who had been charged with attempted murder) should have finished the job and killed Geoff, much to Geoff's shock and Tim's anger, who ordered Alya to leave.

Geoff was later discharged from hospital and brought home by Tim. However when attempting to get into the house, Geoff found that his key would not fit into the lock. Alya and her boyfriend Ryan Conner revealed that they had changed the locks, with Alya saying that Geoff would not come near her family again. Geoff was forced to temporarily stay with Tim and his wife Sally at No. 4. Tim reported Alya's actions to the police, who forced Alya to give Geoff the keys to the house. After regaining entry to the house, Geoff got onto his laptop and deleted footage of his and Yasmeen's fight. Just then, Tim came into the house and questioned Geoff on what he was doing, to which Geoff replied that he had installed cameras for security reasons and had been checking to see if they had filmed Yasmeen's "attack" on him, but they had not. When Tim pointed out that he should have told the police about the cameras, Geoff tearfully says that he would get in trouble with the police if they discovered he hadn't said anything. Wanting to placate his father, Tim agreed not to tell the police or Sally about the cameras and keep it a secret between them. Afterwards, Geoff whist taking out rubbish, disposed of the camera in the bin in Tim and Sally's garden, which is later taken to be emptied by bin men.

Alya later learns from Yasmeen's lawyer Imran that he had been looking at Geoff and Yasmeen's bank statements and one is for a hotel bar. Alya believes that it must have been Geoff going to the bar as Yasmeen was staying in the house. She later visits Yasmeen, who tells her about Geoff seeing escorts. Alya later tells this to Sally (who is not very fond of Geoff) at The Rovers Return just as Geoff arrives. Geoff becomes worried after seeing Alya and Sally together. Afterwards, he is confronted by Tim (who had been informed by Sally) over the news of him seeing escorts. Geoff admits to hiring escorts and claims that he did it because Yasmeen refused to have sex with him. Whilst Sally is disgusted at this revelation, Tim says that this would give Yasmeen a motive to kill Geoff. Tim tells Geoff to come clean to the police as it would help in the case, whilst Sally is doubtful as Yasmeen seemed devoted to Geoff. Geoff tells the police that Yasmeen had found out about the escorts on the night she attacked him. He also says that he kept this information out of his original statement out of shame.

Following Yasmeen's court hearing, Geoff starts to play mind games on Sally and holds a celebration at the Rovers Return with Tim, hoping that Sally will join them, but she refuses. Alya later arrives and tells Geoff the results of the hearing and how Yasmeen has given her chapter and verse on all of his behaviour towards her. Sally listens as Geoff, Tim, Alya and Ryan snipe at each other. Sally later tells Tim that she does not think that Geoff is as innocent as he makes and has him ask Geoff to move back into his own house, which Geoff begrudgingly does, though he is annoyed at Tim for giving into Sally. Geoff later confronted Sally and claimed that their disagreement is affecting Tim's health. He attempts to dismiss her sympathy for Yasmeen as a result of being wrongly imprisoned herself (referring to the time Sally was wrongly imprisoned for fraud after innocently handing a council charity fund over to a conman). Geoff later informs his granddaughter Faye about being kicked out of No. 4. Believing Geoff to be innocent, Faye confronts Tim and Sally over this before moving in with Geoff to support him.

In July 2020, Geoff confronted Sally over visiting Yasmeen in prison. Wanting to get Yasmeen under his control again, Geoff went to the police to retract his statement, but was told that it wouldn't be that simple. Geoff later took Alya's phone and called Yasmeen and claimed that he would get help to change. However, Yasmeen, having been visited by Geoff's ex-wife Elaine (originally named Phillipa) (whom he had Tim with), who gave her the confidence to stand up to Geoff, called Geoff back and rejected him.

In August 2020, Geoff confronted Elaine and warned her to stay away from him and Tim. Unbeknownst to Geoff, Faye overhears what is being said. Afterwards, Elaine disappears and Alya reports her disappearance to the police and believes that Geoff was involved in Elaine's disappearance. When questioned about Elaine's whereabouts, Geoff claimed not to know her and that she had made it up about being Tim's mother, saying that Tim's mother had died.

Geoff goes to No. 4 and has a confrontation with Sally over giving Alya her and Tim's wedding money (which Geoff had taken from Yasmeen) and told her that Tim would always chose him over her as blood is thicker than water. He then tells Sally that she was horrible, old and shrivelled up. Faye overhears the conversation and confronts Geoff over what he said. Geoff tries to claim to Faye that Sally has been abusing him for months, but is ushered out of the house.

Sally later tells Tim of the confrontation. Outraged at Geoff's attitude towards Sally, Tim finally turns against his father and decides that he and Sally should go away from Weatherfield for a bit and stay with Sally's sister Gina, despite Geoff's pleas for Tim to stay.

Geoff later tells Alya that he has a applied for an alcohol licence for Speed Daal, to make up for money lost due to the coronavirus pandemic. When Alya (who does not want an alcohol licence) replies that he would need Yasmeen's permission to do that, Geoff replies that Yasmeen gave him power of attorney months ago, so he can act on her behalf.

In September 2020, Geoff targets Alya further by telling other members of Speed Daal's staff not to go into work, thus forcing Alya to doing everything on her own. After Alya snaps, knocks over a table and kicks out the customers, Geoff comes in with Tim and sees Alya in a mood. He comments to Tim that the apple did not fall far from the tree. Outraged, Alya points a broken bottle at Geoff. Tim manages to talk Alya into putting the bottle down whilst Geoff plays innocent and claims that he has no idea what set Alya off. Ryan arrives and takes Alya away.

Sally later goes to Geoff's home and takes hi laptop, after Tim let slip about Geoff having footage on it from cameras installed in the house. Faye is able to access footage of Geoff abusing Yasmeen months before. After Sally and Faye leave to take the laptop to the police, Geoff arrives wanting the laptop back. Tim confronts him about the footage and about knowing that Geoff had locked Yasmeen in the box at the magic show. Geoff tries to claim that the incident was a one-off and that he was ashamed. However, Tim refused to believe Geoff. Tim also says that he now believes the accusations made against Geoff and how he was a fool not to have seen through him. When the police arrive, Tim directed them to Geoff and tells his father that he does not want to see him again. Geoff is later let go by the police after he convices them that the recording was misleading and had been a one-off and that the recording could not be used as evidence due to it being obtained illegally. Geoff meets Tim and tells him that he forgives him for setting the police him and says that they should put it behind them. He also questions Tim on if he ever lost his temper with Sally. Tim replies that he is nothing like Geoff and berates him for lying to him his whole life and for hiding Elaine from him, before disowning Geoff.

Geoff later goes to Adam Barlow's lawyers office to get information about Yasmeen's trial only to be berated by Adam's uncle Daniel Osborne about using vulnerable sex workers, causing Geoff to storm off. Geoff realises that he left an envelope containing money at the office and goes to get it back only to left again following another confrontation with Daniel. Geoff accused Alya of stealing the money only to later find out that Daniel had took the money to give to his girlfriend Nicky, who worked as an escort. Geoff tells Daniel that he wants his money back and an apology. Daniel meets Geoff and asks for his bank details in order to transfer the money to Geoff's account.

In October 2020, Geoff believes that Tim and Sally's wedding has been put off. However, he overhears Faye and discovers that the wedding is going ahead. Geoff later goes to Speed Daal and trades insults with Alya and Ryan only to discover that Tim has followed him. Tim is disgusted by Geoff's attitude towards Alya and Ryan and says to him to stay away from his and Sally's nuptials. To make sure Geoff does not disrupt the wedding, Abi Franklin lures him to No.4 by sending him a text on Faye's phone that Tim had changed his mind. She then locks Geoff in the conservatory and keeps him there until the wedding is over. Geoff later issues a complaint against Abi over false imprisonment to the police. However, when an officer arrives at the wedding with this statement, the wedding party says that Abi was with them the whole time. Tim later encounters Geoff in the street and tells him that he has lost his entire family.

Alya later attempts to get Geoff to sell No.6 in order to fund Yasmeen's case, but he refuses. Alya also confronts Geoff over unpaid loans in Yasmeen's name. Geoff blames Yasmeen's expensive tastes. Later, Alya sees Geoff charming a woman and decides to follow him to find out what is going on. She later overhears Geoff talking to a woman on the phone and thinks that he is lining up his next victim. Alya follows Geoff to where he is meeting the woman and finds him with a elderly woman named Doris, who is a fan of his hospital radio show and sings Geoff's praises. Geoff later makes a harrassment claim against Alya to the police. Geoff later meets with his new girlfriend Christine, pleased that he got one over Alya.

In November 2020, Geoff sees that Tim, Sally and Faye are having a garden party. Annoyed at being excluded, Geoff gets back at them by playing loud music, causing an annoyed Tim to throw a bucket of water over him. Sally's former sister-in-law Debbie Webster (who is secretly planning with property developer Ray Crosby to buy all the properties in Coronation Street and flatten them for new development) goes to Geoff and claims that Sally has been slagging him off. Believing Debbie's words, Geoff grabs a spade and disrupts the party by smashing the garden furniture. When confronted by Tim, Geoff gives him the spade and tells to finish what Yasmeen started. However instead, Tim calls Geoff "sick" and ejects him from the garden.
