Soap fans beg for at least one episode of EastEnders, Coronation Street or Emmerdale to be moved to Thursday

The soaps are now on a reduced schedule

| Updated:

Soap fans have begged for at least one episode of Emmerdale, Coronation Street or EastEnders to be moved to a Thursday.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, soaps have stopped filming and episodes have been cut.

With the new schedule changes, none of the soaps are airing at all on Thursdays.

But viewers have begged for at least one soap episode to be moved to a Thursday to fill in the gap.

What are the current soap schedules?

Emmerdale airs at 7pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, followed by Coronation Street at 7.30pm.

EastEnders airs on Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 7.30pm.

Both EastEnders and Emmerdale traditionally aired on a Tuesday and Thursday, before they added extra episodes, so should one of them move?

What is happening in the soaps next week?


Despite the reduced schedule, there’s still plenty to look forward to.

Please can we move one of the soaps, just one, to Thursday so that all days are catered for?
