EastEnders has been pulled from its usual Monday night BBC One slot tonight due to the Euros taking over the nation – and television screens.
With schedules disrupted, there will be no episode of EastEnders airing tonight – but fans don't have to worry as they can still watch the episode as normal, if they want.
If you have access to BBC iPlayer then you will be able to watch all four of this week's episodes today as they have been up since 6am this morning.
The reason for this is to keep fans on their own schedule and limit disruption.
Executive producer of the show Jon Sen said: “Giving EastEnders viewers the ability to decide when they drop in on all things Albert Square is something we’re excited about.
“With the inevitable scheduling changes due to the Euros, something we’ll be celebrating in Walford on screen, box-setting all four episodes will ensure everyone gets their dose of drama and football fans won’t miss out.

“From indulging them all in one night, staggering across a few days or continuing to watch the episodes play out on BBC One, we hope the endless streaming options on BBC iPlayer keeps viewers content over the next few weeks.”
If you don’t want to use iPlayer and would like to catch it on TV, then tomorrow, Tuesday, June 15, and Wednesday, June 16, will both have double bills playing to complete the week's four episodes, with nothing airing Thursday or Friday.

As changes continue to happen throughout the coming weeks, it’s important to know that the weekly Eastenders schedule will be uploading every Monday at 6am to iPlayer for fans to keep up.
The Euros were set to be hosted in 2020 but due to the pandemic it was pushed back a year, causing disruption.
With 11 cities hosting the event and Covid rules still in action, the crowd sizes will be slimmer this year but TV coverage will keep fans in the know as matches play out.
