Emmerdale and Coronation Street fans fume as ITV soaps cancelled until Tuesday for football

Emmerdale and Coronation Street fans have been left disappointed as the ITV soaps have been cancelled until Tuesday for the Live International Football.

In a TV schedule shake-up, Emmerdale, which typically airs at 7pm on Friday and Monday, won't be back on screens until Tuesday at 7pm for an hour-long episode.

While Coronation Street, which was due to air at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on both Friday and Monday, won't be returning until Tuesday at 8pm for an hour-long episode.

The TV schedule shake-up is due to Live International Football airing on Friday 12 November, where England will play Albania, it starts at 7pm with kick off at 7:45pm.


While on Monday 15 November, England will play San Marino, it again starts at 7pm with kick off at 7:45pm.

However, soap watchers will still be able to get their fix of EastEnders which will be airing at its usual time of 8:05pm on Friday and 8:05pm on Monday.

Taking to Twitter, Emmerdale and Corrie fans were left annoyed over the TV schedule shake-up as they shared their thoughts.

One person said: "It's a joke putting football on on a friday #emmerdale."

A different viewer wrote: "No #Emmerdale or #Corrie again now til Tuesday," followed by annoyed emojis.

Another soap watcher penned: "TUESDAY?! WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL TUESDAY FOR A NEW EP?! B****y football #Emmerdale @ITV."

Another fan wrote: "Coronation Street's NOT ON tonight, folks. It's back on Tuesday next week, due to football #Corrie."
