He then became involved with Tessa who was rude, lazy and selfish but he put up with her because she allowed him to saw her in half in his act. Despite disliking her he married her when she became pregnant with Tim who was born in 1992. Sometime later they divorced, but does not say how much later. Nor does it say if Tim was still a child then or if he was, who he stayed with. Not sure where Wiki gets it's facts from but would assume it is from the programme makers. In which case it seems Corrie is rewriting history. I cannot remember what Tim or Geoff may have said about the past but I am wondering if the plot to make Goeff abusive was a recent idea as it does not seem to fit with this history.
    Elaine (Philippa?) said they were married for 2 years and Tim was born in 1972 according to https://coronationstreet.fandom.com/wiki/Geoff_Metcalfe.

    My interpretation of this is that Eleine/Philippa is the one who died od breast cancer as she is listed first and Tessa is Tim's mother, so as far I can see Monday's episode does not make sense.

    Maybe they changed the storyline and forgot what was previously mentioned?

    I think this is all a result of Marc Anwar who played Sharif, Yasmeen's husband being sacked. They were then left with a single Yasmern and not knowing what to do with her, paired her with Geoff and made it up as they went along.
    One thing that has also puzzled me is that when Sharif got the chickens Yasmeen disliked them and did not want them in the garden. But recently she did like them, so that when Geoff cooked Charlotte and served her up for dinner, Yasmeen could be brokenhearted.

    Of course not. It's just a coincidence that nobody else likes him.
