Euro 2024 is well and truly under way, with England off to a good start by beating Serbia and Scotland getting thrashed by Germany. The UEFA football tournament is now airing most evenings on both BBC One and ITV1 and the final will take place on Sunday 14 July.

The football fixtures in primetime slots mean many viewers may tune in to watch their favourite shows and find they have been replaced by a soccer match. The TV schedule shake-up has already baffled those who turned on the Scotland match on Friday evening to find daytime TV queen Lorraine Kelly on screen during the pre-match build up.

So here is a guide to when and where to watch the shows that are being shifted around by the Euros TV schedule.
