Emmerdale confirmed to air on Sunday by ITV

·2-min read

Emmerdale has been confirmed to air this Sunday (September 11) after being taken off the air on Thursday and Friday due to the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

British TV schedules are constantly changing at the moment as broadcasters replace regular shows with specials, tributes and extended news coverage focused on the late monarch, but ITV has announced it is dedicating a Sunday evening slot to Emmerdale to allow viewers to catch up.

Airing at the earlier time of 6.35pm – and replacing Celebrity Lingo with RuPaul – is the hour-long Thursday, September 8 instalment.

The Friday episode was set to be an hour long as well, but it's not been announced when that will air, and whether it will be aired in one go or be split in to two episodes.

Following the rare Sunday Emmerdale is the regularly scheduled duo of Gino's Italy: Like Mama Used to Make and Ridley at 7.30pm and 8pm, respectively.

Outside of these three shows and the news and weather updates throughout the day, all of ITV's Sunday schedule will be dedicated to the late Queen and/or King Charles III. No advertisements will run during the royal coverage, and it will run until the state funeral, at least.
