EastEnders bosses have confirmed a schedule shakeup this week, with the long-running soap moving to a different day.
The programme will be moved to make way for FA Cup coverage. On Wednesday, February 8, Fulham and Sunderland will replay their game on BBC One.
The fixture will take place at 7:30pm, during EastEnders' usual slot. EastEnders will instead air on Tuesday rather than on Wednesday with Waterloo Road and Sort Your Life Out with Stacey Solomon also airing after the episode, Birmingham Live reports.

EastEnders is currently running a number of hard-hitting storylines including fan favourite Lola Pearce's terminal brain tumour and 12-year-old Lily Slater's pregnancy. There are plenty of characters making a debut in the Square with Patsy Kensit having just joined the soap as Lola's mother Emma.
Lily's dad Ryan Malloy will also make a brief return in February.
This isn't the first time that soap fans have been subject to schedule changes. Coronation Street, EastEnders and Waterloo Road have all previously being impacted by FA Cup matches, the Queen's death and the World Cup most recently.
