This week, fans of Coronation Street and Emmerdale will be unable to see their favorite soaps.
The popular ITV show has had to rearrange its schedule.
That’s because, as the FA Cup enters its fifth round, football will dominate both ITV and BBC throughout the week.
Despite the fact that there are no games scheduled for tonight (Monday), the modifications will commence immediately.
Emmerdale will show at 7 p.m. as normal, but for an hour only. After that, there will be an hour-long episode of Coronation Street.
There will be no Emmerdale on Tuesday night (March 1), with the extra half-hour on Monday compensating for the missing episode. On Tuesdays, Corrie does not air.
Emmerdale will air at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, but it will not be followed by Corrie as it usually is.
The Salford-based soap will return with its regular hour-long episode on Friday night, as well as an extra hour-long episode of Corrie on Sunday, March 6 at 8pm, to make up for the missing episodes from Wednesday.
On Thursday, Emmerdale will air as usual, followed by a special hour-long episode on Friday.
The most recent modifications come ahead of a timetable makeover that begins next week.
The largest British soaps will move to new optimal schedule times on Monday, March 7, as ITV tries to construct a “solid block of continuing drama.”
Every weekday, Emmerdale will change from 7 p.m. to a slightly later time of 7.30 p.m.
Meanwhile, Coronation Street will air three hour-long episodes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8 p.m.
ITV National and International Evening News will become an hour-long broadcast as a result of the modifications.
