EastEnders schedules changed AGAIN as Friday's episode is cancelled

Soap fans are bound to be disappointed...

EastEnders episodes are being disrupted yet again, just days after fans were left furious when a Brexit vote overran and interfered with their trip to Walford.

Viewers like to know when they are going to get their daily dose of soaps, but this week's schedules have been all over the place.

There are TWO episodes of #EastEnders tonight. 7.30pm and 9.00pm. @BBCOne.

Instead of being on over four nights this week as usual, this week's changes will see TWO episodes going out tonight (Thursday March 14).

In the first of the two episodes, airing at 7.30pm, viewers can expect to see the Slaters desperately trying to get Jean to leave her caravan.

Sandwiched between MasterChef, the second-part at 9pm sees Mitch pushing Karen to let him move in with her.

Anyone hoping to watch both EastEnders AND MasterChef will have to clear the whole evening from 7.30pm to 10pm to get their fix!

Friday night's EastEnders has been moved because of Comic Relief 2019, which will take over the BBC1 schedule from 7pm.

Soap fans were left furious on Tuesday night (March 12) when MPs gathered to cast their vote on Theresa May's Brexit deal - and the resulting breaking news threw the BBC schedules into chaos.

EastEnders was supposed to air at 7.30pm as usual, but was shifted at the last minute because of the important political updates.

Those tuning in to see Jean Slater's fate, were instead met with a News Special detailing the Prime Minister's catastrophic Brexit defeat by 149 votes.

While EastEnders fans only had to wait half an hour, Holby City fans were livid when the medical drama was axed completely.
