EastEnders fans share anger online as tonight’s show is cancelled

EastEnders viewers are fuming as tonight's show has been cancelled.

The BBC soap will not air this evening as the show has been replaced with FA Cup football instead.

Tonight's BBC schedule will be dominated by the fifth-round match between Liverpool and Chelsea from 7.30pm until 10pm.

And fans of the show are annoyed that EastEnders has had to make way again, with many venting their frustrations online.

One raged: "I’m fed up with the soaps being moved to accommodate sport."

While another said they wanted to see what happens between Ben Mitchell and Callum Highway, writing: "It's Tuesday morning. You're just waking up when you check your phone to see what time EastEnders is on tonight.

"You realise it's not and you'll have to wait until Thursday for Callum content even though you weren't fed the whole weekend. You, along with the entire population cries."

A third chimed in: "I still don’t get it. Why can’t they just move the football to BBC Two instead of affecting EastEnders or vice versa?

"At least give us the episode on Wednesday but NOOOOOOOO we have to wait two days, not one lol."
