EastEnders fans will have to rearrange their plans slightly as the BBC has confirmed its schedule changes to make way for Euro 2024.


In newly-confirmed schedules for the week commencing Monday 24th June, the BBC soap will have a change in location as it moves to BBC Two during the football.

The schedules for Tuesday 25th June and Wednesday 26th June confirm that BBC One will air France v Poland and Ukraine v Belgium respectively from 4:30pm, meaning the evening BBC News broadcasts will air from the later time of 7:10pm.

As a result, on both the Tuesday and Wednesday, EastEnders will air at 7:30pm on BBC Two.

This will be followed by a switch back to BBC One on Thursday 27th June, with episodes airing that day and on Friday 28th June at 7:30pm.

In the coming weeks, fans will see Callum Highway (Tony Clay) and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) grow suspicious over the death of Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters).

Elsewhere, Yolande Trueman (Angela Wynter) is left reeling after she comes face-to-face with sexual predator Pastor Clayton (Howard Saddler), and Harvey Monroe's (Ross Boatman) new friend Maya Houssain (Bharti Patel) may be up to no good.

EastEnders isn't the only soap that has been disrupted due to the football, with both Emmerdale and Coronation Street facing a scheduling shake-up.
