Faye gets a text and immediately her mood darkens. Anna and Owen are oblivious. Steve and Tracy go over their plan to ruin Fare Ladies. When Eileen appears they cover by staging a mock row and Tracy slaps Steve to make it look realistic. Tracy calls in to Lloyd's cab office and pretending that she too wants to get even with Steve, convinces him to give her the job of switchboard operator. Sean berates Marcus for parading his new boyfriend Aiden in the Rovers and rubbing his nose in it. Marcus is taken aback. Fiz collects Hope and Joseph and thanks Izzy and Gary for all their help. Taking Izzy to one side, Fiz urges her to tell Gary about her pregnancy. Tracy starts work at Fare Ladies and enjoys herself handing out duff addresses and secretly phoning Steve and passing work to Street Cars. Izzy breaks the news to Gary that she's pregnant. Gary's stunned but elated. Izzy points out it won't be easy because of her disability but Gary insists it's the best news he's ever had. Lloyd has the day from hell as drivers fail to turn up at the correct addresses and the customers give him a hard time. Tracy's secretly pleased with herself. Anna presents Faye with her new trainers. Faye paints on a smile but inwardly she's disappointed as they're not the ones she wanted. Marcus calls at No.11 and assures Sean that Aiden is not his boyfriend. He suggests they make a pact and agree not to flaunt any new relationship. Sean agrees. As Steve and Tracy celebrate a successful day sabotaging Lloyd's business, Eileen walks in and realises they're in cahoots. Steve begs her not to say anything to Lloyd.
