All Change For TV Soaps

4 min read

Coronation Street, EastEnders and Emmerdale have confirmed more scheduling chaos due to the World Cup.

 

All three soaps will be moved around the schedules over the next few weeks to make way for live football coverage on BBC One and ITV.

 

The World Cup takes place in Russia between June 14 and July 15. TV schedules have now been confirmed up to Friday, June 22 – and they’re worth a look if you want to keep track of the soaps without any problems.

New schedules announced today confirm that Corrie and Emmerdale will both still air six episodes’ worth of material in the week commencing Monday, June 18, so fans aren’t actually seeing any less of their favourite shows.

 

However, for both soaps, these episodes have been merged into hour-long editions airing on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday that week.

 

On each of these days, Emmerdale airs for an hour at 7pm, with Corrie following for an hour at 8pm.

 

Meanwhile, EastEnders has two episodes merged together at 9.25pm on Monday, June 18, making up for no episode on Tuesday, June 19. The Walford soap returns on Thursday, June 21 at 9.10pm and Friday, June 22 at 9.10pm. (All times are BST.)
