Soap fans face a dilemma as EastEnders clashes with I'm A Celebrity TONIGHT

It's a clash of the titans!

TV fans will face a dilemma tonight, when EastEnders airs one hour later than usual.

On Friday (November 22), the BBC soap will air at 9pm to make way for an extended edition of Question Time.

From 7pm to 9pm, presenter Fiona Bruce will introduce a live debate from Sheffield, with Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Scottish National Party Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The debate is an important one in the run-up to the election on December 12.

But the big decision for some viewers won't be who to vote for... It'll be what to watch afterwards at 9pm!

With EastEnders running late at 9pm, fans are faced with a tricky choice - sticking with the BBC soap, or watching I'm A Celebrity on ITV or Gogglebox on C4!

Elsewhere, unlikely romance begins to blossom between Karen Taylor and Billy Mitchell when the mouthy mum has a trial working at the E20.

The official EastEnders Twitter page informed fans of the change of time, saying: "Morning all. Just to let you know that EastEnders is on at 9pm tonight. See you there!"

And fans were quick to express their frustrations!

One pointed out that, although the BBC soap airs later in the UK, Ireland's RTE One will broadcast at the usual time.

They wrote: "UK viewers may want to avoid Twitter completely between 8pm and 9pm at the risk of seeing spoilers for tonight's episode.

"This is because Ireland's RTE One will broadcast #EastEnders an hour earlier than BBC One, where it has moved (once more) due to Question Time."

Another said: "I'm sorry. Nine. Nine O'Clock. EastEnders, Gogglebox AND I'm A Celeb are all on at nine. What am I meant to do? #EastEnders."

Another said: "Dilemma tonight! EastEnders and I'm A Celeb on at 9pm! Thank heavens for the iplayer to watch on catchup!"

A third seethed: "And they have got the bloody cheek to move #EastEnders back to 9pm #whataliberty."
