Geoff Metcalfe will continue to spin lies amid the disappearance of his ex-wife – but is the game finally up for him on Coronation Street?

His fury, however, is channelled towards his daughter-in-law after he discovers how she has gone behind his back.

How will Tim react to his father’s fury?

Meanwhile, a marriage could lie in tatters as the chemistry between two exes becomes undeniable.

Here’s what’s happening on Coronation Street next week…

Gary and Sarah ‘set for explosive affair’

Gary Windass and Sarah Platt look set to embark on an explosive affair as she covers for his murder.

The pair have been rousing suspicion from their loved ones ever since he risked his life to save her from a racing car – with a number of things not quite adding up.

Sarah (Tina O’Brien) lied after she was asked why she had been running away from Gary (Mikey North) at the time, and insisted that she had just been walking fast and he had tried to catch up with her.

Despite finding out about the murder, the chemistry between Sarah and Gary had clearly been reignited.

Adam discovers that the watch that Bernie had found in the wood had Rick’s name etched onto the back of it.

Adam confides in Imran about what he has realised and that he is even more convinced than ever that Gary murdered Rick.

And when Craig returns her bag from the accident scene, Sarah is caught out when Adam catches her handling the watch.

Adam demands that she tell him everything that she knows about Gary and Rick, and she reluctantly tells him that if Gary did murder Rick, it was to protect her and her family.

How will Adam react?

Later in the week, Maria excitedly prepares for her wedding with Emma and Carla.

Audrey is forced to pull out of attending the wedding after suffering a stomach bug, so Maria asks David to witness her wedding instead.

Meanwhile, Gary calls in at No. 8 to question Sarah on what she told Adam.

Sarah insists that she didn’t tell Adam anything, but that he believes that she’s still in love with Gary.

The atmosphere between the pair becomes electric… will sparks fly between them again?

Alya Nazir will take drastic action to get Geoff out of her life – but it could have a big implications for someone else on the street.

Last month on the first day of her trial, Alya’s grandmother Yasmeen suffered a heart attack and is continuing to recover in hospital.

Fearing for Yasmeen’s future, as some residents continue to believe Geoff’s lies that he was the victim of abuse, she takes action.

With Elaine now gone, she decides she has to stay away from Geoff and feels the time is right to sell her half of the family restaurant.

She doesn’t want to face him every day a moment longer, but Sally Metcalfe has another suggestion.

Sally, Geoff’s daughter-in-law, continues to support Yasmeen over him, and encourages Alya to buy out Geoff.

She offers her the wedding money for her and Tim given to them by Geoff, knowing full well it was Yasmeen’s savings.

But Geoff refuses to let Alya buy him out, enjoying the fact she is struggling with him being there.

It’s then that she drops the bombshell that Sally was going to give her the money to pay him…
