@ Nik - It's not the first time the Soaps have done something like that - and it certainly won't be the last. I know someone who'd call him 'an oxygen thief'! I wonder why that sprang into my head.....🤔😂😂😂😆?
Geoff was coherent enough to shout, "She's trying to kill me!" the moment he regained consciousness, and when asked, "Can you think of any other reason why she'd do that?" his reply was "No!"
What a beast! 😝 No, beasts are much nicer!

@ Sandy Cowell - It crossed my mind that he might survive too!
@ Andy5'91/2 - Probably 5’6” range or maybe 5’7”.

Oh stink, stink, stink, stink and more stink! I suspected that evil bully Geoff would probably survive. What the heck will happen now? I hope it's realised that this was a case of self- defense, after months of the worst mental torture imaginable.
I should imagine that if Yasmeen ends up in prison, it'll be like a holiday camp in comparison to her life with Geoff.

It's good to see her smiling in the picture. She hasn't had many opportunities for that in 'Coronation Street' lately, alas.
This is for you, Shelley: 🤗

I think 5’1 1/4 is very fair but i wouldnt rule out 5’1 1/8 but how tall do u reckon her on screen husband geoff is? Ive seen some argue 5’10 and some say over 6’0 i believe not sure if hes ever claimed his height though

How fantastic to see Shelley getting her page on Celebheights! I am so pleased, Rob - thank you multiplied by 10,000!
The coercive control story involving Shelley's character, Yasmeen, and her evil husband Geoff Metcalfe, has had us all gripped for literally weeks. Never have I seen such a cruel scenario acted out in front of the cameras, even in films, yet this was part of a Soap opera. The only reason they got away with such a strong storyline is because it didn't involve physical violence, but it showed how destroying somebody mentally is easily as bad as physical abuse. Nobody came to Yasmeen's rescue because she wasn't black and blue, giving her abuser all the more scope for his mental torment of her. She's tiny and skinny - no way is she 124lbs now, and Geoff felt all-powerful as he systematically set out to go to work on ruining the educated former pillar of the community.
He was resentful of her education as well.
He called her fat, made her eat one of her beloved pet chickens, controlled her money, made her - and others - think she was an alcoholic, visited prostitutes and insodoing, passed on to her an STI, giving him even more scope to persecute her. When this week, he discovered she had packed her bags with the intention of leaving him, he burnt her clothes and goodness only knows what else of personal value to her, locking her in to watch through the glass conservatory door. He even faked a heart condition to prevent her from attending a family wedding, which her granddaughter attended, so she was totally alone this week.
Then when the 'couple' were invited out for a meal, you see the tiny, mentally battered, fragile woman sitting on the pub's bathroom/toilet floor and literally cracking up. Then when she learns that her oh-so-generous husband has been financing his son's up-and-coming wedding with HER money, she understandably asks questions. The bully frogmarches her out, claiming to the others that she isn't well, (she certainly doesn't look it) and takes her back to the house nearby, where he intends to lock her in again. Seeing that there's scope for more mental battering, he tells her that the dress he had her wear for the evening was meant for a young, firm, buxom-figured prostitute and again tells her how revolting, smelly and past it she is. Then he starts waving a knife at her, saying that no one would notice if he did away with her. What else had she to do but to defend herself?
Metcalfe is hardly a big man, but next to her, he felt all-powerful. That the Soaps show stories like this makes you shudder to think that these things go on in real life. It's a good thing that they give a helpline number at the end of each episode.
This was the most extreme and disturbing case of mental abuse I have ever seen on TV or film.
Shelley gets 5ft3 for her peak height and 5ft1.25 for today's height. She doubtless had to lose weight during the making of this because she looks no more than 104/105 pounds now.
She deserves an award for her performance - and she'll get it!
