EastEnders viewers will be overjoyed to hear that there will be a double helping of the soap this evening… but might also be wondering why.
Soap fans will be able to indulge in an hour of Walford-based drama tonight, which will be missing from their schedule tomorrow.

This will also be the last Six Nations for coach Warren Gatland, who is leaving Wales after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
