EastEnders fans fume as soap’ is cancelled in BBC scheduling shake-up

EastEnders fans have been left very disappointed as tonight's episode of the show will not be airing due to a BBC schedule shake-up.

EastEnders spoilers have revealed that Chantelle's (Jessica Plummer) domestic abuse horror is set to escalate once again at the hands of her husband Gray (Toby-Alexander Smith), but fans will have to wait and see what comes next.

Whilst EastEnders normally airs every Monday at 8pm, the BBC has changed up the schedule to air the FA cup for football fans.

The third fixture between Arsenal and Leeds will be aired instead, leaving viewers waiting until tomorrow night for their latest instalment of the drama.

However, BBC bosses will instead be airing two hour-long episodes this Friday (January 10) at 8pm and 9pm.

As he has become determined to have a third child, he is left furious when Chantelle takes a pregnancy test and it comes back negative.
