Soap fans have been venting their annoyance on social media as Euro 2016 fixtures have resulted in EastEnders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale being moved around the television schedule.
Live coverage of the footballing event is prioritised over programmes which are normally allocated to certain time slots on both BBC One and ITV.
Long-running stalwarts EastEnders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale have all been affected.
The Albert Square soap is at a crucial point as viewers are eager to know what will happen to young Bobby Beale (played by Eliot Carrington) who has been charged with the murder of his sister Lucy Beale (Hetti Bywater).
A BBC spokesman said: "BBC One is a mixed genre channel that broadcasts big live sporting events of national interest like the Euros 2016. It is sometimes necessary to move slots to accommodate live matches."
EastEnders will be broadcast as normal on Thursday and Friday, but disgruntled fans had their say about their soaps on Twitter.
Leave our soaps alone!
