Emmerdale and Coronation Street cancelled in schedule shake-up as fans fume

11/12/2021

Soap fans were thoroughly disappointed to discover that the latest instalments of their favourite shows had been cancelled this evening.

Both Coronation Street and Emmerdale – which usually airs every Friday – will not be broadcasting new episodes on November 12 due to a last minute reschedule.

The TV disruption is due to an all-important football match which will now air England’s World Cup qualification games instead.

Football fans will be in for a treat on Friday night as the broadcaster prepares to air live coverage of the highly-anticipated game where England got head-to-head with Albania at 7pm.

Viewers have been reminded they will also host the England v San Marino on Monday night, also scheduled for 7pm.

But fans of the hit ITV dramas have been left upset by the news that their favourite show has been pushed back by the sporting match, and viewers took to Twitter to share their frustrations online.

Both shows will return to their regular scheduled programming with new episodes on Tuesday, November 16.

One disgruntled fan penned: “I have got to say that I am disgusted with ITV, the reason being you have taken off Coronation Street and Emmerdale for football.

“This has ruined mine and no doubt hundreds of other viewers’ viewing pleasure.”

Another agreed. “Because of this I shall be watching less and less of ITV which means I shall be watching your rival channels more and more.

“I normally only watch ITV, keep on doing this sort of thing and I shall stop watching ITV and change to your rivals.”

A third queried: “Why can’t they just put the football (or Corrie) on ITV2, 3 or 4? It's always the soaps that get messed around.”

Elsewhere, one fan of the show noted: “Dear #Corrie producers, I’m disappointed that you’ve scheduled in another Tuesday episode, which clashes with #BakeOff.

“If you have to show a football match then can’t you reschedule #CoronationStreet to a Thursday? I really hope this doesn’t happen again in #GBBO final week.”

Both shows will air as normal from Tuesday, November 16.
