Emmerdale won’t air tonight – here’s when the soap is next on

n a shake-up to ITV’s schedule, Emmerdale won’t be on tonight (Monday, June 17). But when is the soap airing this week?

This week sees the continuation of the UEFA Champions League, which will air on ITV1 from 4.15pm – 10.30pm tonight. This means that Emmerdale won’t air in its usual 7.30pm spot.

But, when will Emmerdale be on this week?

When is Emmerdale on this week?

Neither Emmerdale nor Coronation Street will be airing today or on Thursday, June 20, to make way for the football.

Instead, the plan is for both soaps to air on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week. To make up for lost time, Emmerdale will air a double-bill from 7pm – 8pm on Tuesday (June 18) and in regular half-hour segments on Wednesday and Friday, starting at 7pm.

At least EastEnders won’t be affected, airing on its usual Monday – Thursday timeslot, with new episodes dropping every morning on iPlayer.

Stay tuned for any further football-related changes to the schedule as they land!

What’s happening on Emmerdale this week?

This week’s episode end with Matty still in prison for allegedly stabbing Samson Dingle. Viewers know the truth of course – that Samson’s injury was an accident brought on by his friend, Josh.

However, Samson is sticking to his story, in spite of Moira’s best efforts to clear her son’s name. And, as she grows increasingly determined to talk Samson around, the pressure begins to get to her marriage.

Can Moira and Cain make Samson see sense before Matty goes down for good?
