Contains spoilers for the latest episode of The Great British Sewing Bee.

If you're a big Sewing Bee fan, you need to hear this important announcement about this week's episode: there's a channel change due to a broadcasting clash.

This week's episode will be broadcast on BBC Two instead of BBC One, due to Euros match Portugal versus Czechia. The time of the show will be the same, 9pm, and as well as BBC Two, it will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

In the next episode, presenter Kiell Smith-Bynoe will return with judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young for a series of India-themed challenges. They will be joined by guest judge Priya Khanchandani.

In the Pattern Challenge, the contestants will be stitching a Nehru jacket, a short, single-breasted jacket with covered buttons, which takes inspiration from the jacket popularised by the first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru.

For the Transformation Challenge, the sewers must make a garment from two fabrics of Indian origin, calico and Madras cotton.

In the Made to Measure Challenge, the sewers must create fabulous evening wear inspired by the traditional sari.

We can't wait to see how the sewers get on this week. Last week saw a Sewing Bee first, with the contestants challenged to make a party outfit out of an old wedding dress. Alex won Garment of the Week, for her stunning puff sleeve dress made with hand-painted wedding dress silk. Sadly, Don's efforts weren't enough and he was the fourth Bee to be sent home.

The next episode of The Great British Sewing Bee is on Tuesday 18 June at 9pm on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.
