Diaries at the ready!
BBC Pictures

We love the festive season as much as the next person, but there’s one aspect of Christmas that does get a bit frustrating (and it’s not the fact there’s always too much leftover turkey).

No, it’s the altered soap schedules. And the fact Christmas Day is a Sunday this year means there are even more changes than usual to note down in your diaries. And then there’s those extended episodes too.

So make sure you keep a note of these dates and times to know exactly when ‘EastEnders’ is on BBC One this Christmas…

Monday 19 December - 8.00pm

Tuesday 20 December - 7.30pm

Thursday 22 December - 7.30pm

Friday 23 December - 8.00pm

Christmas Eve - 8.25pm (35-minute episode)

Christmas Day - 9.30pm (60-minute episode)

Boxing Day - 8.00pm

Tuesday 27 December - 7.30pm

Thursday 29 December - 7.30pm

Friday 30 December - 8.00pm
