Why is there no EastEnders tonight?

As we all know, EastEnders normally airs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.

But tonight (January 9), BBC One will broadcast the FA Cup fifth round fixture between Manchester United and West Ham United instead of the latest episode of the soap. 

Instead, the jam-packed episode will air on Wednesday at 8pm for 20 minutes.

Why is there no EastEnders on Thursday?

BBC One will broadcast more football from the FA Cup this Thursday (January 12) in place of EastEnders, with Barnsley hosting Chelsea in another fifth-round tie.

But fans shouldn’t be too annoyed about this as we’ll still get our fair share of Walford drama this week.

To make up for the schedule shake-up, there’ll be an EastEnders double-bill this Friday (January 12), from 8.10pm to 9pm.

What’s happening on EastEnders this week?

There’s plenty of drama set to unfold in Walford this week as the soap kicks off Max Branning’s dramatic exit storyline. 

EastEnders spoilers have revealed that Rainie will take little Abi off Max after realising he’s not in a fit state to parent. 

Viewers will then see Max stumbling through the Square clutching a bottle of whisky as the soap kicks off his dramatic exit storyline. 

Meanwhile, Kathy declares war on Sharon after her son Ian fails to turn up in one piece. 

Elsewhere, Kush will risk a furious backlash from Gray when he organises a Valentine’s Day date with Whitney. 

Mick is relieved when the police tell him that missing Tina has been spotted shoplifting in London, but Shirley still fears the worst and announces she's heading out to look for her.

Will she end up clashing with Tina's murderer Gray?
