Yasmeen Metcalfe (previously Nazir) is a resident of 6 Coronation Street and the co-owner of Speed Daal along with her husband Geoff and granddaughter Alya.

A former librarian, Yasmeen was made redundant with the closure of Weatherfield Community Library in 2014. As the Nazirs - Yasmeen, her first husband Sharif, their widowed son Kal, and grandchildren Alya and Zeedan - moved into No.6, Yasmeen tried her hand at running the new community centre, Jamila House. Gradually Yasmeen was left alone as Kal was tragically killed in the Victoria Court fire in 2015 and the following year Yasmeen kicked Sharif out over his seven-year affair with her friend Sonia Rahman.

After Zeedan moved to London, Yasmeen began working at his Victoria Street restaurant Speed Daal as a cook and bought a share in the establishment in 2019. That same year, she married Geoff Metcalfe, a man who doted on her but had a controlling nature. In 2020, when threatened by Geoff Yasmeen stabbed him in the neck, unable to bear his abuse any more. He recovered, but Yasmeen is currently in Norcross Prison awaiting trial for attempted murder.

In July 2014 Yasmeen gathered her family (with the exception of grandson Zeedan) to meet Kal's new girlfriend Leanne Tilsley, the first woman he'd found happiness with since the death of his wife Jamila two years previously. Yasmeen was sceptical of Leanne because of her fractured past (as she had a stepsister and a half-sister) as well as an estranged husband. Despite this the meeting appeared to be a success, however it was cut short when Leanne's estranged husband Nick turned up and began to pick off Leanne's bad points, mentioning that she had been both a lap dancer and prostitute in the past. This caused an embarrassed and shamed Leanne to run back home in tears.

After learning that Weatherfield Community Library faced closure, Yasmeen tried to enlist the support of local residents in order to take part in a protest, and befriended cafe owner Roy Cropper. The pair held an all night sit-in at the library, and although the council had assured them that they would consider appealing for the library to remain open, the building caught fire afterwards, leaving her out of a job.

Yasmeen began to use Roy's Rolls as a makeshift library, but Roy found it too much as her constant interfering was overbearing and putting off customers. She then decided to rent the empty unit next door and opened up Jamila House, a community centre which was named in memory of her late daughter-in-law, Jamila, who passed away in 2012.

In June 2015 Yasmeen lost Kal when he perished at a fire at the Victoria Court flats after rescuing a trapped Amy Barlow. She told Leanne that she was always welcome to still be a part of the family.

Yasmeen was devastated to learn in November 2016 that Sharif had been indulging in a seven year affair with her best friend Sonia Rahman, whom they just recently put up due to her husband kicking her out. Yasmeen was further disappointed to learn that Alya knew as well, and blackmailed Sharif rather than inform her. Yasmeen ordered the pair to pack their bags and leave the house. A couple of days later, Yasmeen was sent a letter from Sharif in which he revealed that he had gone to Newcastle, leaving Yasmeen angry that he had run away from his responsibilities. Yasmeen's woes went from bad to worse after being told by Pat Phelan that the flat she and Sharif were in the process of purchasing was not being built due to his partner, Vinny Ashford, running off with the deposit money that all of the investors had paid upfront.

In 2017, Yasmeen began helping out at Roy's Rolls when one member of the staff was off, and also during Anna Windass' imprisonment before her trial.

In 2018, she filed for a divorce against Sharif, who by that point had met someone else and intended to remarry.

In 2019, Yasmeen married Geoff Metcalfe, who began to act controlling towards her by cutting her off from her family and friends and decided what she should wear and how much money to give her. Yasmeen was also devastated and disgusted when Geoff tricked her into eating her beloved pet chicken Charlotte Brontë.

In May 2020, Geoff threatened Yasmeen with a knife. In self-defence, Yasmeen hit Geoff with a wine bottle before stabbing him in the neck with the broken end. Geoff managed to survive this and Yasmeen was later charged with attempted murder.
