Emmerdale to air special one-hour episode tonight in schedule shake-up

EMMERDALE will air a one-hour special tonight ahead of its big move to a new time slot.

The ITV soap will broadcast from 7pm to 8pm instead of its usual 30 minute episode because of disruption to the schedules.

Matches from The FA Cup will see the soaps moved around all week with none airing on Tuesday night.

On Wednesday only Emmerdale will broadcast with the soap airing again the following day alongside EastEnders.

And on Friday night there will be hour-long episodes of all three of the main soaps.

Coronation Street will also air a special episode on Sunday to catch-up ahead of the schedule shake-up.

From next week all three soaps will begin airing at new times.

Emmerdale will move to a nightly 7.30pm slot – with an hour-long episode on Thursdays.

Corrie meanwhile will air Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings for an hour at 8pm
