MasterChef and EastEnders axed as BBC clears schedule for Prince Philip tribute
Friday night's MasterChef final and EastEnders episodes have been dropped after BBC cleared schedules for special programming on the late Prince Philip.
Buckingham Palace confirmed earlier on Friday that the Duke of Edinburgh had passed away.
Following the Royal's death aged 99, the BBC cleared its schedule for the rest of the day on BBC One and BBC Two.
That means the planned broadcast of the MasterChef final will not air, and neither will the fourth episode of the week of EastEnders.
