Emmerdale and Coronation Street cancelled: ITV soaps taken off air in schedule shake-up

Emmerdale and Coronation Street will not air in their usual slots this evening as ITV has shaken the television schedule up in order to accommodate the latest UEFA Euro 2020 Live fixture. Instead of tuning into the latest drama from the Dales and Weatherfield, viewers will see France take on Switzerland in the sixth match in the final 16. 

Emmerdale usually airs one half an hour episode on a Monday, while Coronation Street gives fans a double helping – two thirty-minute instalments, one before 8pm and one after 8.30pm. 

But tonight, as with the last few weeks, the ITV soaps won’t air in their original time slots. 

It comes as the soaps are available to watch on the ITV Hub for the duration the UEFA Euro 2020 Live is being broadcast on tv. 

Instead, football fans can see France play Switzerland with kick-off at 8pm.

Mark Pougatch will be presenting the coverage and the game takes place at National Arena Bucharest. 

France are one of the tournaments’ favourites and Switzerland will start as heavy underdogs following only one win in their group matches against Turkey. 

As for when Emmerdale and Coronation Street will air this evening’s episodes for those who do not wish to watch on demand, tomorrow night will see two episodes of each soap play out. 

Starting at 7pm, Emmerdale will play two thirty minute instalments back to back. 


While Coronation Street will begin at 8pm for one hour. 

As for what the Emmerdale episodes will entail, Meena Jutla (played by Paige Sandhu) is causing more trouble while Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) is determined to help Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steel) get back on track. 

Meanwhile, Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) is helping spread the word about Emmerdale’s Pride event. 

But, it isn’t long before the village residents have lost faith amongst one another as the collection tin goes missing. 

Viewers will then see Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh) struggling as she continues to take care of baby Frankie. 

In Coronation Street, Alina Pop (Ruxandra Porojnicu) makes a shocking discovery related to Tyrone Dobbs’ (Alan Halsall) past. 

And while the two discuss it, Alina drops her own bombshell – she’s pregnant. 

Tyrone will be left in turmoil, unable to process the new

And there is the matter of how Fiz State (Jenny McAlpine) will react when she finds out how quickly Tyrone’s new relationship has progressed. 

Elsewhere, Daisy Midgley (Charlotte Jordon) is scheming once more and exercises her authority and pushes Sean Tully (Antony Cotton) out of a job at the Rovers Return. 

But it isn’t long before she is put in her place by Jenny Connor (Sally-Ann Matthews).
