EastEnders CANCELLED tomorrow for frustrating reason – but there is good news

EastEnders has been CANCELLED tomorrow for a very frustrating reason – FA cup football.

The BBC soap will not be airing in it’s usual slot on Friday because of the fourth-round clash between Arsenal and Manchester United .

The two most successful teams in the history of the competition will do battle, with coverage starting at 7.30pm.

The football taking priority over EastEnders is sure to anger a lot of viewers – but there is some good news for fans.

There will be a special double helping of the soap tonight as the usual 7.30pm episode will be followed by another one at 8.30pm.

In the first of tonight’s episodes, the Slater clan will receive some shocking news.

There is more drama in the second helping of EastEnders when Kat finds a secret message from Alfie.

But she is left waiting for answers when Ernie accidentally eats half of the handwritten note.
