EastEnders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale schedule changes this week
It's all change for the soaps this week due to two FA Cup matches.
This week's soaps are set for a major schedule shake-up due to football coverage.
Fulham vs Leeds United and Manchester United vs West Ham in the FA Cup will air on BBC One and ITV1 on Tuesday 28th February and Wednesday 1st March respectively.
Today's (Monday 27th February) Coronation Street and Emmerdale will be unaffected, while two episodes of EastEnders will air back to back from 7:30pm till 8:30pm.
Meanwhile, Emmerdale will air at 7pm on Tuesday 28th, while EastEnders will be bumped from the schedule entirely and as usual for a Tuesday there will be no new episode of Coronation Street. None of them will be airing on Wednesday 1st March.
On Thursday 2nd March, EastEnders will air as usual, while Emmerdale will air for an hour from 7pm, followed by Coronation Street for an hour from 8pm.
Friday 3rd's schedule will then see the same format, with half an hour of EastEnders from 7:30pm and hour-long episodes of Emmerdale and Coronation Street airing at 7pm and 8pm respectively.

EastEnders was previously rescheduled due to the FA Cup last month, with the soap airing an unusual Friday episode to make way for the Fulham vs Sunderland match.
EastEnders recently saw a major twist, as the soap used a flash-forward to tease a mystery death during 2023's Christmas season, as part of the show's 38th anniversary celebrations.
The flash-forward also saw Sharon in a wedding dress, meaning that a wedding appears to be on the cards - but just who is she marrying?
