Next week’s episodes of Corrie find a saddened Paul (Tony Hirst) saying goodbye to Eileen (Sue Cleaver) before heading to his new job in North Yorkshire.
Eileen does her best to cover her heartbreak, but as she drowns her sorrows with Deirdre, she has an epiphany. Realising that Paul was the one for her and that she shouldn’t have let him go so easily, Eileen races to the station. But as the train pulls away, taking her man with it, Eileen is left gutted on the platform.
Returning home, she decides to move on. But when Paul arrives back on the street, having witnessed her station dash, Eileen’s heart soars. He loves her, but needs to know that she can cope with him being a fireman. Can they find a way forward? And how will Eileen react when Paul informs her later on that he’s got his old job back?
