Why isn't EastEnders on BBC1 tonight and how can I watch it?

As the summer of sport continues on the BBC, with the channel providing live coverage of many big events, EastEnders has been bumped from its normal 7.30pm slot on BBC One. The soap has changed channel as BBC One airs MOTD Live: UEFA Women's Euro 2022.

On Tuesday, July 26 EastEnders will instead air on BBC Two at 7.30pm. The show will then not air at all on Wednesday, July 27 as BBC One continues to air MOTD Live: UEFA Women's Euro 2022 and BBC Two will be airing Live T20 Cricket from 6pm.
