Why isn't Coronation Street on tonight?

AFTER announcing a new schedule including hour long episodes, Coronation Street will not air tonight.

Here's what we know about why the soap will not be on today (March 2, 2022).

Why is Coronation Street not on tonight?

The FA Cup will be shown from 7.30pm until 10.20pm on ITV tonight (March 2, 2022).

Footie fans will get to see Liverpool v Norwich City.

This unfortunately means Coronation Street will not be aired this evening as usual.

The official Coronation Street Twitter page announced in late January that the soap will now air hour long episodes.

When is it back on ITV?

Fans will have to wait until Friday, March 4, 2022, for the popular ITV soap to return at 8pm for an hour long episode.

The show will be back to normal in the week starting Monday, March 7, airing at 8pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The new schedule of hour long episodes was introduced in March 2022, but the football has interfered with it slightly.

Corrie's new schedule may threaten rival soaps such as EastEnders due to the clash in times.

The BBC soap is on screens on Thursday, March 3, at 7.40pm, before going up against Corrie on Friday with two half-hour episodes.

John Whiston, ITV's head of commissioning shared: “With Coronation Street bursting at the seams with fantastic story and character, the new format gives the show a brilliant new canvas on which to shine.

“And Emmerdale will do what it does best in this new time slot where viewers can continue to enjoy the dramatic goings-on in the Dales.”

Emmerdale is airing on Wednesday, March 2, and Thursday, March 3, 2022, before the football at 7pm in half hour slots.

It then will air from 7-8pm on Friday, March 4, 2022, before Coronation Street.
