CORONATION Street's Geoff Metcalfe has sparked a new mystery about his missing money.
The villain - who is played by actor Ian Bartholomew in the ITV soap - was frantic with worry after losing an envelope stuffed with thousands of pounds.
Viewers know that Daniel Osbourne took the money for sex worker Nicky, but Geoff doesn't have a clue.
Tonight he will accuse Alya Nazir of stealing it from him as Daniel keeps quiet.
But it has now left viewers with an intriguing question - why has Geoff been running around with thousands of pounds in cash?
While fans are aware that Geoff is a controlling abuser, they have been left wondering what he did with ex-wife Elaine who came out of hiding to help free Yasmeen from prison.
Geoff had abused her years ago to the extent she was forced to give up her baby, Tim, and flee to save her own life.
She returned after almost 50 years away to make herself known to Tim but was rejected - and Geoff later tracked her down.
Elaine was last seen cowering in the alleyway as Geoff threatened her.
He was later seen destroying her phone back on the cobbles, but the question of where Elaine has gone has been playing on viewers' minds.
And now they are convinced the money is connected to it all.
