Coronation Street fans looking forward to their regular Monday-night double bill are to be left disappointed – the ITV soap has once again lost its place in the schedules thanks to football.

The group F qualifier between England and Slovakia will be shown at 7.15pm, meaning that Corrie gets cancelled and Emmerdale shifts to an earlier time of 6.45pm.

Viewers are fast becoming used to schedule changes in soapland – with last Friday’s Coronation Street double bill being moved to Sunday, again to accommodate football coverage.

The rest of the week’s Corrie broadcasts will remain as normal (Wednesday 7.30pm, Friday 7.30/8.30pm) and there’ll be another hour-long episode on Sunday at 7.00pm, meaning that devotees won’t miss out in the long run.

As for the upcoming drama itself, Wednesday’s episode will see Eileen seek the truth as regards Phelan’s shifty behaviour, Will comforts Michelle on Robert’s day in court, while Gemma hatches a plan to help Rita.
