The UEFA European Football Championship 2024 (or Euro 2024 as its known) takes place every four years, though the last one was held in 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

You’ll be glad to know that we head back to Emmerdale tomorrow (Friday, June 21st) at the normal time of 7:30pm.

There’s also an hour-long edition of Coronation Street following it, as usual.

We’ll see Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton) get close with transphobic bully Josh (Osian Morgan) in The Woolie, secretly attempting to record their conversation on her phone to prove that son-in-law Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) is innocent, and didn’t mean to stab Samson Dingle (Sam Hall).

Belle King (Eden Taylor-Draper) continues to hide the truth from husband Tom King (James Chase).

Will there be any further disruption?
