There’ll be glum faces all round for EastEnders fans tonight as the BBC1 soap makes way for football in the schedules.
Tonight’s FA Cup third-round match between Liverpool and Everton from Anfield will be shown from 7.30pm, all of which means that EastEnders won’t return until Monday 8 January at 8.00pm.
Devotees shouldn’t feel too cheated, though, what with EastEnders having already been shown four times this week.
The upcoming drama will see Tamzin Outhwaite making her much-publicised comeback as Mel Owen, while Maisie Smith is also reprising the role of Tiffany Butcher.
Plus, there will also be a crisis for Masood and his newly installed family members Auntie Mariam and Uncle Arshad.
