Coronation Street and Emmerdale face third week of schedule changes

Coronation Street and Emmerdale face fresh schedule changes for a third week on ITV.

This week and next week see the popular soaps hit our screens at amended times due to the airing of both the Rugby World Cup and the UEFA Women's Nations League.

As the Rugby World Cup continues into October, fans will see the programmes moved around in the schedule to accommodate the sport's live coverage.

Monday, October 2, and Wednesday, October 4, will see Corrie air at 8pm, accompanied by a rare Tuesday, October 3 outing at the same time.

No episode will air on Friday, October 6 to make space for live coverage of the Rugby World Cup match between France and Italy from 7.30pm, explaining why fans are seeing a Tuesday episode.

Emmerdale will also air at the earlier time of 7pm on Friday, October 6, instead of its usual 7.30pm, because of this.

Next week will also see the soap air at amended times, but there's plenty of drama set to unfold on the cobbles to make up for the change as Stephen's lies are further brought into question after Leo's body is discovered.

Elsewhere in the soap, Courtney finds herself in a tricky situation when Dev tries to bribe her after her affair with Aadi was exposed in a previous showdown, and things get heated at Shelly's funeral.

Also in next week's episodes, Chas faces a difficult moment with her ex-husband, Paddy, as well as Mandy and Eve.

Coronation Street usually airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm and Emmerdale on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1 and streaming on ITVX.
