EastEnders plans a six-episode week...

The regular schedule is tweaked ahead of summer sporting events


EastEnders will go supersized later this month with a whopping six episodes airing in one week.

Official schedules have revealed that an hour-long double episode will be screened at 8pm on Wednesday, April 27, in addition to the show's usual airings on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday that week.

The extra hour-long slot for EastEnders consists of two episodes merged together, meaning that fans are effectively getting six helpings of Walford drama across the week.

It starts off in eventful fashion with Ben Mitchell publicly kissing his boyfriend Paul Coker at the Queen Vic, sparking a childish reaction from his disapproving dad Phil.

Provisional schedules released by the BBC for the following week have indicated that a similar hour-long screening will also air at 8pm on Wednesday, May 4. This would mean another six-episode week, but these schedules won't be officially confirmed for a few days yet.

It's thought that the schedule has been changed in preparation for summer sporting events which will be dominating the BBC One schedules.

EastEnders continues on Monday (April 18) at 8pm on BBC One as Nancy's decision to leave Walford causes shockwaves for the Carters.
