It’s that time of the week again, another one of our beloved TV soaps has had its weekly schedule disrupted due to sport.

There will be no Coronation Street airing tonight (February 28) on ITV, as coverage of the FA Cup continues.

The next fifth-round match between Liverpool v Southampton will start on ITV1 from 7.30pm, with kick-off at 8pm.

Mark Pougatch will be joined by Ian Wright and Roy Keane as the trio will present throughout the game.

More FA Cup coverage will be shown on BBC One at the same time, meaning EastEnders will also not air tonight at its usual time of 7.30pm.

Instead, Gary Lineker will host Match of the Day Live as Nottingham Forest take on Manchester United at the City Ground, with kick-off at 7.45pm.

Commenting about Corrie's recent schedule changes on X, formerly Twitter, one fan said: “@ITV can it please be considered that your soap operas not removed for dancing on grass, (sorry football matches). Not everyone likes football. What about ITV2 put coronation street on that channel for those that hate dancing on grass.”

Last week, a viewer posted: “What I'm not looking forward to is this,  7.30 slot tonight itv 1 . Took coronation street off for this womens game itv. please do tell us the viewing  audience numbers afterwards. This should of being on itv 2 friendly match slap in  the face for soap bosses."
