The next lot of schedule disruption comes on Friday October 11 as ITV hosts more football coverage.
The channel has confirmed they will show England’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier against Czech Republic from 7pm, meaning no showings of either Emmerdale or Corrie that night.
EastEnders will then shunt back to its usual 8pm slot after airing at 8.30pm over the last few weeks to avoid a clash with the hour-long Corrie that has been airing from 7.30pm.
It means that week we’ll only have four visits to the cobbles with double bills on Monday and Wednesday. The soap has yet to confirm when – and if – they will catch up on the missing Friday episodes.
But it’s good news for Emmerdale fans, who will get an hour-long episode on the Tuesday October 8, to make up for the missing Friday episode.
EastEnders will stay at 7.30pm on that Tuesday meaning a CLASH with the Dales.
Emmerdale has historically come out top when the two go head to head, but with fans getting fed up of the soap at the moment – and some even demanding it be axed – could Easties win out this time?
It’s yet to be revealed which storylines will feature heavily in these weeks, but traditionally October is a big month for the soaps.
Emmerdale usually airs a big week around its anniversary time – it’ll be 47 on October 16 – often involving a stunt or the culmination of a big storyline.
And with Moira and Nate’s affair set to be revealed, and Chas’s baby due any day, things look set to be explosive.
In Coronation Street, Sinead’s cancer storyline is ongoing and it’s set to end in tears very soon.
The young mum has been told she only has months to live after discovering her cancer had returned and was terminal.
Meanwhile, EastEnders has confirmed the return of Martin Fowler during that week, and he’s going up against Ben Mitchell.
Who will come out on top?
