The BBC soap is on for half an hour tonight

| Updated:

The BBC soap EastEnders is not usually on screen on a Friday but tonight (Friday, February 9), the soap will air its final episode of the week.

This is due to a schedule change taking place this week, meaning that the soap couldn’t air on Tuesday (February 6).

With EastEnders airing tonight instead, here’s what you can expect from the latest episode.

EastEnders airs tonight in a schedule shakeup

EastEnders usually airs four episodes a week for half an hour on Monday-Thursday evenings.

However, this Tuesday, the soap was unable to air due to Match of the Day Live being on its place.

This match saw Plymouth Argyle take on Leeds United, with a kick off time of 7.45pm.

As EastEnders airs at 7.30pm, the soap missed its usual episode on Tuesday. Now, the soap will air its final episode of the week tonight instead.

This episode will air at 7.30pm-8.00pm, although it has been available on BBC iPlayer since yesterday (Thursday, February 8).
