Why isn’t EastEnders on tonight? When is it back on BBC One?

Fridays aren't the same without it!

EastEnders isn’t on tonight, Friday, March 26, due to a scheduling conflict.

Why isn’t EastEnders on tonight?

EastEnders isn’t on tonight because Live Six Nations Rugby Union is on instead.

The final match of this year’s tournament, France vs. Scotland is airing between 7.30pm and 10pm.

However, the soap already prepared in advance for its Friday night absence.

Instead they aired two episodes yesterday, Thursday March 25.

EastEnders announced on Twitter they would be airing a double bill that day.

“There will be two episodes of EastEnders on tonight, at 7:40pm & 8:05pm, and no episode on Friday.”

But some Enders fans aren’t happy with the arrangement and a fair few took to Twitter to complain.

One user fumed: “They are the biggest divas in soapville! Always messing with schedules and taking more breaks than another soap. Grow up.”

Meanwhile, another argued: “They should put the rugby on BBC2 and leave EastEnders on BBC1 at its normal time slot.”

And a third user claimed: “I’m only watching one episode of #Eastenders tonight I can’t not not have it on a Friday night.”
