The British soap schedule has seen a shakeup this past week with many of the nation’s favourite evening shows getting rescheduled. EastEnders is one of the soaps that has been impacted by the change in TV schedule. Express.co.uk has all you need to know about how to watch EastEnders on the BBC this week. 

When is EastEnders on this week?

Many soap fans were disappointed to hear the familiar faces from Albert Square would not be returning for another episode on BBC One. 

This is due to the fact that the Euros 2020 began on June 11, and the major footballing event is set to continue into this week. 

The sporting competition was postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, so fans have had to wait a long time for the action to start again. 

This weekend (June 13) saw England claim victory against Croatia with a final result of 1-0. 

For those who are keen to watch new episodes of Eastenders, they will still be able to tune in from today (June 14). 

However, they will not be able to watch the soap on its usual platform – BBC One. 

This is because the match between Spain and Sweden is due to kick off at 8pm, with coverage starting from 7.30pm after The One Show. 

Four new episodes of EastEnders will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer from today, June 14. 

Fans will then be treated to a double-bill on BBC One on Tuesday, June 15, from 7.35pm until 8.20pm. 

The remaining episodes from the week will air in a double-bill on Wednesday, June 16, from 8.10pm until 9pm. 

There is plenty of drama to come on the square as Stuart (played by Ricky Champ) and Rainie (Tanya Franks) take a trip to the police station about Abi (Lorna Fitzgerald).

Mick (Danny Dyer) will also have trouble getting to Linda’s (Kellie Bright) scan, and he fears he will not make it in time as things take a bad turn. 

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the schedule shake-up, with one saying: “All of this week’s EastEnders ready to go on iPlayer. We are blessed.”

Another said: “I just caved and binge watched all of this week’s episodes of #EastEnders. All before work on a Monday morning.

I have no willpower at all.  But I actually quite like this idea of watching them all before they air on TV! It’s a really good and strong week of ep’s.” [Sic]

Many other fans have chosen to binge all four episodes at once, so those without access to iPlayer will have to try and avoid spoilers. 

Thankfully, those watching on BBC One will not have to wait too much longer, as the episodes will start to air from tomorrow night. 

One fan confirmed on Twitter: “There is no #EastEnders tonight however though if you really want to you can watch every episode from the week right now over on BBC iPlayer same goes for #Emmerdale and #Corrie.”

Some people set their alarms early so they could binge all four episodes before work or school.

Another fan added: “Up at this time just so I can watch all the EastEnders eps before school.”

Viewers have been torn between watching all four episodes at once or spreading them out to build up suspense. 

At this moment in time, it seems the same can be expected for next week, as the Euros continue to take over evening slots on the BBC. 

On Monday, for example, Finland will take on Belgium at 8pm, with coverage starting from 7.30pm. 

All four episodes of EastEnders are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
