Coronation Street, Emmerdale and EastEnders fans struggle after NO SOAPS aired last night

There are no episodes on Thursdays

Coronation Street, Emmerdale and EastEnders fans struggled last night (Thursday, April 2) as it was the first Thursday evening with no soap episodes.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, UK soaps have taken the decision to stop filming and cut down on episodes.

Both shows now air on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with Emmerdale at 7pm and Coronation Street at 7:30pm.

BBC soap EastEnders has also cut down its weekly episodes from four to two.

With EastEnders only airing on Mondays and Tuesdays, along with Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks, it means at the moment there are no soaps on Thursdays and viewers are struggling.
