EastEnders in huge schedule shakeup as Cindy Beale returns to Walford | The Sun

EASTENDERS is facing a huge schedule shake-up for Cindy Beale’s return to Walford.

The BBC soap will be kicked out of its original 7.30pm BBC One slot in place of the World Athletics Championships.

BBC One’s evening schedule will air live coverage from Budapest where the competition is being held.

That means there will be no EastEnders on Monday August 21.

Instead there will be a double bill on Tuesday August 22 from 7pm.

Again there will be no episode airing on BBC One on Wednesday August 23.

However on the Thursday night – the day of Cindy Beale’s return to Walford – there will be an hour-long double bill from 7pm.

But there is good news for fans who watch on iPlayer as the soap will continue to air on its usual days from 6pm.

That means there will be new episodes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday available to watch on the streaming service.

Cindy’s return comes after son Peter Beale makes his own shock return to Walford.
