BBC cancel huge amount of shows including Breakfast as Friday TV schedule cleared

BBC chiefs have decided to scrap a host of beloved shows on Friday, July 5, to accommodate a full day of Election coverage. BBC One will experience a significant reshuffle as nearly all its morning and daytime programmes are dropped.

Jon Kay and Sally Nugent typically kick-start the day with a summary of national and international news on BBC Breakfast at 6am before passing the baton to BBC Morning Live’s Gethin Jones, Helen Skelton, and Michelle Ackerley three and a half hours later.

The weekday magazine programme then runs until 10:45am when Scam Interceptors takes the stage for a 30-minute slot before the BBC’s long-standing property show Home Under the Hammer airs with presenters Martin Roberts, Dion Dublin, and Martel Maxwell at the helm.

However, none of these crowd-pleasers will be broadcast on Friday as the network brings the UK up to speed with the results of the General Election.

According to the Radio Times television guide, coverage will commence on Thursday, July 4 at 9:55pm on the channel, meaning that BBC News At Ten has also been axed from the schedules, reports the Express.

Election coverage then rolls on from 9:55pm on Thursday until 4:30pm on Friday before BBC One will air the latest from Wimbledon.

This will be followed by the 6pm news and then Portugal v France at 7:30pm as the Euros 2024 continues.

The election and summer sports coverage have led to the cancellation of shows like Animal Park, Bargain Hunt, and Escape To The Country on Friday. Additionally, BBC’s The One Show, which typically airs weekdays at 7pm, has been off-air all week.

Alex Jones, the show’s presenter, announced last Friday that the programme would be taking a break, confirming The One Show would return on Monday, July 8.

In the meantime, EastEnders is also dealing with disruptions this week, although it will still be broadcast in different timeslots on BBC Two instead of its usual slot on BBC One.
