Emmerdale viewers will have to wait another day for their next instalment of the soap because of scheduling being changed due to Euro 2020 football

Instead of seeing what happens to Liv after Aaron and Ben tracked her down at the caravan site last night, fans will be disappointed to see there is Hungary v Portugal and France v Germany football matches on ITV tonight instead. 

But while soap fans are used to their favourite TV shows being moved around for major sporting events, this year there is great news because Emmerdale, Coronation Street and EastEnders are all being streamed online. 

For the first time soap fans can binge watch an entire week of episodes in one go as ITV and BBC drop the soaps on ITV Hub and BBC iPlayer on a Monday evening during Euro 2020. 

The soaps will still air on the channels as usual, but at the new scheduling times, and being able to watch the soaps online means viewers can watch the episodes either at the usual time they would have been shown on TV, or you can binge watch the whole lot in one go.
