Popular Sunday night show Countryfile was bumped last night to make room for a last minute Question Time Brexit special.
The rural show did tweet its viewers to let them know it was being moved from 7pm to 5pm…
But not everyone got the message.
Where's #Countryfile gone???— Paula (@67_tiggy) June 26, 2016
And not everyone was okay with the news.
The last straw. Countryfile has been replaced by yet another rehashing of the sorry state of our country in Question Time.— Pat Machin (@pat_machin) June 26, 2016
If you thought people were angry about Brexit, you hadn’t seen anything yet…
As if this referendum couldn’t get any worse, they’re now putting Question Time on in place of Countryfile.

@BBCCountryfile Loving Twitter tonight.Moving countryfile has stoked up a controversy 2 rival Brexit.Shows how much we all love the show 🙂— John Sellers (@moose5000) June 26, 2016
These viewers had had enough of politics. They just wanted to forget about the EU Referendum for an hour.
- But all we wanted to do was chill out and Countryfile was the way for us to do it! BBCQT could've waited till tomorrow!— Ian Wright (@IanWright16) June 26, 2016
I was so looking forward to Countryfile, to soothe a weekend of anxiety-filled political chaos but they’ve replaced it with QUESTION TIME.

But it was too much to ask…
I just wanted to eat some cheese and watch countryfile, bloody question time is on instead!!! 🙋🏼🔫— Claire B (@missbelluk) June 26, 2016
Some viewers stuck around and watched Question Time instead.
#Countryfile is a bit 'shouty' tonight. John Cravens impersonation of Alex Salmond is brilliant. Helen Skelton's Dianne Abbott not so good.— Colin Neil Hewitt (@BBQColin) June 26, 2016
But they bitterly missed Countryfile.
I recorded Countryfile but it turns out there was a special #questiontime …I can tell you this, there is much less manure in Countryfile.— Drew (Totally Woke) Baxter 💙 (@CampPaDrew) June 26, 2016
Whatever the future of Britain’s political system looks like, one thing is for sure:
We need to all come together now and move on. Countryfile needs to get back to it's normal time ffs #bbcqt— Adam Donnelly (@18Donnelly) June 26, 2016
Next sunday should be ok but 10th July is going to be tricky as it's men's final at Wimbledon and footie final! https://t.co/Ld2gjxbZfO— BBC Countryfile (@BBCCountryfile) June 26, 2016
