However, with FA Cup fifth found action between Manchester Untied and West Ham United due to take place on Tuesday, the soap is subject to a major scheduling shake-up.

EastEnders will air tonight as normal at 8.05pm, but will not air on Tuesday and Thursday.

Instead, the drama from Albert Square will air on Wednesday at 8pm for 20 minutes.

There is more football from the FA Cup, with Barnsley hosting Chelsea in another fifth-round tie on Thursday, meaning there will be an EastEnders double-bill on Friday, from 8.10pm to 9pm.



Fans hare not happy as one tweeted: "Bloody football again."

Another viewer posted: "The FA Cup has caused havoc for the only two shows I watch on @BBCOne next week. No @bbceastenders on Tuesday and Thursday – extra episode on Wednesday at 20:00 and Friday at 20:35."

While this shocked user penned last month: "Omg football is disrupting the EastEnders schedule again."

This is set to be another interesting week in Walford, especially as Max Branning will say farewell after 15 years on the show.


Ahead of his final episodes, Jake, 48, said Max had done it all during his stint on the BBC soap and knew it was his time to leave in an exclusive chat with The Sun.

He shared: "I've slept with 15 women in 15 years. I've had four marriages. Ten affairs. Shared a hot tub with Ian Beale. Gone to prison.

"Been throttled by my brother. And been buried alive. It's time for Max to go."
