Why is Coronation Street not on tonight?

The usual Friday double bill will not be shown this evening

Published: Friday, 1st September 2017 at 6:27 am

There's bad news for Coronation Street fans tonight: the usual Friday-night double bill has been replaced by football.


Instead of the latest drama from Weatherfield, ITV will instead be showing the Malta v England World Cup qualifier from 7.15pm.

Emmerdale viewers will get their usual fix at a slightly earlier time of 6.45pm.

But Corrie fans needn't despair - there'll be an hour-long instalment showing on Sunday between 7.00 and 8.00pm. So, ignore any cries of there being fewer episodes.


As for what's on the agenda - Phelan will be seen making a grave decision about Andy's fate (pun very much intended), while Rana and Kate's girls' night has an unexpected outcome thanks to a newcomer named Imogen.

Finally, Todd leaves Summer and Amy to their own devices, but will he come to regret his decision?
