Monday night is Unforgotten night, so we can look forward to more sleuthing from Cassie and Sunny tonight, right? Wrong.


For one night only, ITV's hugely successful cold case drama starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar is being booted from its usual slot and delayed by a day. But why? And when can we see episode three of this series?

Here's everything you need to know.

Why isn't Unforgotten on TV tonight?

You might have heard of a little interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle taking place this weekend? A few people are talking about it.

Oprah's in-depth conversation with the former royals airs in America on Sunday night. It's bound to be a ratings winner, so British TV channels have been competing for the rights to air the programme here in the UK.

ITV were successful, and have chosen to air the interview on Monday in the prestigious 9pm slot, leaving Unforgotten out in the cold.

When is Unforgotten episode three on TV?

Don't worry, although the delay is frustrating you don't have long to wait for your next instalment of Unforgotten.

The series returns to ITV at 9pm tomorrow (Tuesday 9th March). So the same slot as usual, just 24 hours later.
