Why isn’t Casualty on tonight?

The BBC medical drama has been bumped from the schedules tonight for a major reason.

While usually the schedules are messed around by football or the Olympics – tonight is a very different reason.

As well as the first live episode of the new series of Strictly, the BBC is broadcast live coverage of a major music concert.

Global Citizen Live: Music Festival for the Planet is described as a modern day Live Aid with huge names performing.

The biggest names in music will take to various stages across the world for one continuous charity fundraiser in the hopes of restarting the world after the pandemic.

Coverage of the concert will be broadcast at 5.30pm, 9.20pm and midnight on BBC One.

When is Casualty back?

Luckily for fans they don’t have too long to wait for their favourite medical drama to return.

It will be back on screens next Saturday.

However, Casualty will air at a slightly later than usual time, after Strictly Come Dancing’s live episode and a new series of Blankety Blank.

Viewers will have to wait until 9.30pm to watch the new episode.
