The broadcaster has now released a revised schedule for Friday, announcing that BBC One will carry BBC News specials up until 6.30 p.m. on that day.

While BBC Two has also experienced changes to the schedule, many BBC One The channel now has programming running all day.

For instance, the EastEnders episode that was originally scheduled for Thursday, September 8 will now air on BBC Two on Friday, September 9.

The serial drama will pick up where the last episode left off, with Billy Mitchell (Perry Fenwick) being detained by DCI Keeble for a historical crime that he didn’t commit.

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright) is thrilled when Mick (Danny Dyer) lets her say goodbye to Annie in another part of the Square, but she feels left out when he goes upstairs to help Shirley.

Additionally, Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner) reassures Freddie (Bobby Brazier), who is upset, that his mother will have explanations for him, and Sharon invites Matt back to her house, but she is conflicted about her feelings for Phil.

EastEnders airs on Friday September 9 at 7:30pm on BBC Two.
