Although there hasn’t been an official explanation for the schedule change, Coronation Street is airing an hour-long episode from 7:30pm until 8:30pm, so soap fans won’t have to chose over which soap they watch.

This week, for EastEnders’ special anniversary, residents of Albert Square have boarded a boat setting sail down the River Thames to celebrate The Queen Vic winning best pub in London.

However so far viewers have seen that things aren’t going smoothly.

During Keanu and Phil’s showdown, they knocked the boat’s wheel causing it to crash.

The crash caused the lower deck of the boat to take on water meaning everyone needed to evacuate.

However, Linda is currently trapped in the boat’s kitchen and Dennis Rickman Jr was locked in a changing room by Ian Beale.

With the two of them stuck, could they be the ones to die?

Meanwhile, Ian’s youngest son Bobby was rushed into emergency surgery after he was attacked by a gang.

While Ian went to deal with Dennis, who is responsible for Bobby’s online abuse, Kathy received a strange call from her son Ben.

As she rushed off to see what was happening with Ben, she called Ian’s other son Peter to come and be with Bobby.
