Episode six of the army drama was originally meant to be shown last Monday, it then moved to the Tuesday but due to World Cup clashes it was then moved to the Friday, where it was this time cancelled because of the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage!

It will now – assuming nothing else happens! – be screened at 9pm tonight (17th July).

Summing up the general mood, one fan wrote: "So unfair you've taken Our Girl off again! Why not put the tennis in BBC2 instead. Already missed out due to the football being on a different channel...".
