But she doesn't get away on time, as the girls and boys throw a little party for her 50th birthday at the factory.
Meanwhile her date...Nigel... turns up early at her house, and Rosie lets him in.
A 50th birthday banner is put up across the factory balcony, which is shown to Eileen after she sees the cake they have made, and she says that she must be leaving.
Eileen goes up to the balcony to try to take down the banner, and in the process of leaning over to do this, she gets her head stuck between the railings.
Nigel comes out and sees her, and immediately leaves, saying it is not such a good idea after all, as she had told him that she was only 40!!......or was that something to do with Rosie changing her profile??!!
Never mind, as this is no big loss after what is about to happen.
Rosie brings out a chain saw, but Eileen won't have that near her.
The fire brigade is called, and handsome fireman Paul arrives to rescue Eileen, by cutting the railings.
He says she should get checked out, so Julie takes her to casualty.
On leaving, with a neck brace fitted, they meet Paul on his way to see how she is, bearing flowers for her.
She asks him to go for a drink with her on Saturday, but he is busy working, but he can make it for Monday. This pleases Eileen.
Chris sees the doctor, who is pleased with his progress.
But when he gets home, he plays up and lies to Cheryl and Lloyd, telling them his condition is not looking good and his symptoms are getting worse.....which is a total lie.
Tracey overhears Ken and Deidre talking about her...wondering how she will cope with two babies.
This puts Tracey thinking and upsets her, as she knows that she was pretty hopeless with Amy.
As she thinks she won't be able to cope, she tells Steve that she wants an abortion. They talk, and he says he won't stand in the way if she wants to settle with another man.
But she then tells him that he is the only man she wants.
She says that he is the most special person in the world, and he says ditto...as mother nature has been screaming at them to get together.
So they end up sharing a kiss. ...
.wonder if SHE will change her mind tomorrow!!??
Later, Steve tells Becky that Tracey is having twins.
She is upset, but doesn't show it.
Becky runs to Hayley...very upset, but Sylvia tells her that she must now move on. In the meantime, Steve and Tracey decide that they are officially an item now. Later, Becky comes round to give Steve the divorce papers, and she wishes him good luck.
