Is Geoff holding Elaine hostage in Corrie? Latest fan theories on her disappearance

CORONATION Street fans were horrified by Monday night’s (August 3) ominous cliffhanger as Geoff was seen destroying Elaine’s phone and SIM card. 

Geoff’s suspicious antics came shortly after a furious showdown between the exes.

As Elaine headed over to Street Cars to try and get through to Tim, Geoff emerged from the shadows and sneered: "Long time no see, Philippa", as she stood frozen to the spot.

The brute then ordered his ex-wife to leave before things turned nasty, but Elaine refused to stand down and hit back: “You can’t order me around anymore.”

The next time viewers saw Geoff on screen, he was holding Elaine's phone and destroying her SIM card before tossing it down a nearby drain.

So has Geoff murdered Elaine?

Where is Elaine in Corrie?

Under the cobbles

It’s certainly possible that Geoff could have decided the best way to stop Elaine exposing his abuse would be to murder her.

One angry fan tweeted: "If Geoff has killed Elaine I am going to scream #Corrie."

Being held hostage

Could Geoff really have killed Elaine in broad daylight in such a short space of time?

Might Geoff be hiding Elaine away somewhere against her will to make sure she can’t give evidence against him in court?

One viewer tweeted: "I replayed scene, he took the sim card out of the Samsung phone then dumped it down the drain by the car. His trainers looked clean for Geoff to have been digging a hole, no scratches on his face & jacket was clean & tidy to bury Elaine That's my input. #Corrie."

Another added: "Wonder which cellar Geoff has got Elaine chained up in. #corrie."

A third viewer tweeted: "I've seen it around that viewers are speculating that Geoff has killed Elaine - I don't think so. I reckon mostly he's locked her somewhere or he's threatened her so badly, she's hiding for her life or for someone else's. #Corrie."

Somewhere far away

Corrie fans know that Elaine left her abusive marriage to Geoff in 1973 after his abuse left her fearing for her life. 

And when Geoff refused to let her take Tim - who was only a one-year-old baby at the time -  Elaine was forced to leave without him.

Has Elaine done a runner again at the sight of her abuser?

Many viewers are certain that Geoff has forced Elaine to flee - and that she'll return on the day of Yasmeen’s trial and give evidence against the brute. 

One fan tweeted: "Calling it now: Elaine disappears, presumed dead and Yasmeen's trial looks to be in Geoff's favour right up until the last day, when Elaine reappears as a witness and gives a damning testimony."

But with Corrie bosses yet to confirm Elaine's fate, fans will have to tune in to find out what Geoff has done with his poor ex-wife.
