Emmerdale in special double bill tonight as Coronation Street is cancelled | The Sun

EMMERDALE has revealed another schedule shake-up with TWO episodes airing tonight.

TV schedules have been thrown into chaos due to the ongoing coverage of The Queen's death and impending funeral.


It means the soaps are having to play catch-up to try and fit all the previously axed episodes back into the schedule.

Now, ITV has confirmed that two episodes of Emmerdale will air tonight, rather than the original single 30-minute episode in a last minute schedule change.

The first will air at 8pm while the second will follow at 8.30pm, with the news being cut back to make room for the double bill.

However, there's bad news for Coronation Street fans as this means the soap has been axed tonight.

The changes come as both ITV soaps aired extra episodes last night to bring soap fans up to date.
