EastEnders Schedule Disrupted Due to Euro 2024

This week, EastEnders will face major disruption to its usual schedule on the BBC due to the Euro 2024 football tournament. The soap’s airing times will be shifted to accommodate the championship matches.

Schedule Changes

The tournament kicked off last Friday, and for the next few days, EastEnders won’t be airing on its regular BBC One channel. Instead, it will move to BBC Two on certain days. Despite this change, viewers will still be able to catch all the drama from Albert Square from Monday to Friday at 7.30 PM.

Weekly Schedule

Here is this week’s revised schedule for EastEnders:

  • Monday, June 17: 7.30 PM – 8 PM on BBC One
  • Tuesday, June 18: 7.30 PM – 8 PM on BBC Two
  • Wednesday, June 19: 7.30 PM – 8 PM on BBC Two
  • Thursday, June 20: 7.30 PM – 8 PM on BBC Two

Fans can also watch each episode on BBC iPlayer from 6 AM, Monday to Thursday.

BBC Announcement

Confirming the news on X (formerly Twitter), @bbceastenders posted: “#EastEnders is on @BBCOne, tonight 7:30pm and on @BBCTwo, Tuesday-Thursday at 7:30pm. You can also watch right now on @BBCiPlayer!”

Euro 2024 Coverage

The schedule change is due to the following Euro 2024 fixtures being broadcast on BBC One:

  • Tuesday, June 18: Gary Lineker will present coverage of the Group F match between Portugal and Czechia from Leipzig Stadium in Germany (kick-off 8 PM).
  • Wednesday, June 19: Gabby Logan will present coverage of the Group A match between Scotland and Switzerland from Cologne Stadium (kick-off 8 PM).
  • Thursday, June 20: Coverage of the Group C match between Denmark and England from Frankfurt Arena will be shown from 4 PM until 7.30 PM (kick-off 5 PM).


EastEnders continues tonight on BBC One at 7.30 PM and will be available on BBC iPlayer. While the schedule change might be inconvenient for some, it ensures that fans don’t miss out on any episodes during the Euro 2024 tournament.
