Coronation Street: Coercive control storyline sparks Ofcom complaints

Viewers complain to Ofcom as abuse storyline heats up.

Fans of Coronation Street favourite Yasmeen Nazir are turning to media regulator Ofcom to vent their anger at the abusive treatment she receives from partner Geoff Metcalfe.

The Sun reports that Ofcom has received numerous complaints from fans, peaking at the start of February when Geoff took his anger out on Yasmeen for a failed magic trick by locking her in a box.

Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV and STV.
