Why is Corrie not on tonight and when is it back?

Fans of Coronation Street are in for a disappointing evening tonight – unless they’re also fans of Swindon Town or Manchester City – as the usual Friday night trip to Weatherfield has been postponed.

Don’t worry, schedules will soon go back to normal, but here’s everything you need to know for tonight.

Why isn’t Corrie on?

The soap has made way in the schedules for the third-round FA Cup tie as league two team Swindon hope for some giant-killing exploits against the mighty Manchester City – who’ve already won the FA Cup six times.

Coverage of the football starts at 7.30pm, straight after Emmerdale, and finishes at 10.20pm, so Coronation Street has been bumped from its usual Friday slot.

When is Corrie back?

There has already been an extra visit to Weatherfield this week as an episode was aired on Tuesday, but for fans eager to discover how Tim Metcalfe (Joe Duttine) is coping with the shock diagnosis of his heart condition and whether he’ll ever manage to tell Sally (Sally Dynevor) about it, you’ll be relieved to hear that it’s back in its usual Monday time slots of 7.30pm and 8.30pm.

Elsewhere, Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell) and Chesney (Sam Aston) will face heartbreak during Monday’s instalment as they discover young Joseph is being bullied at school.
