Bad news for soap fans as the TV schedule has been switched again due to Euro 2024. BBC One soap EastEnders will be affected by tonight's game.

Match of the Day live will host the Portugal vs Czech Republic on BBC One from 7:35 pm on Tuesday June 18 which clashes with EastEnders usual slot of 7:30 pm. However, soap fans won't completely miss out as the soap will still be on TV at the same time but will move over to BBC Two.
