EastEnders schedule changes left fans annoyed on Bank Holiday Monday after discovering last night’s episode (April 13), was moved for an old film.
Usually, EastEnders airs at 8pm on a Monday night. However last night, BBC One aired Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at 6.40pm, leading the episode to be pushed back to 8.30pm.
Soap viewers explained they were not happy when they went to turn on BBC One at 8pm, and discovered the show wouldn’t be on for half an hour.

It comes after EastEnders episodes were cut from four a week down to two due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As the show has suspended filming, weekly episodes were reduced in order to ensure there’s enough to cover until filming resumes.
