ITV has announced when its soap operas Coronation Street and Emmerdale will return next week, after Prince Philip’s death resulted in a last-minute change in TV programming.
Corrie and Emmerdale fans were devastated when their favorite soaps were removed on Friday night, when ITV instead aired a special dedicated to the Duke of Edinburgh, with the BBC doing the same and removing EastEnders.

But ITV has now confirmed that Corrie and Emmerdale will be back at their regular time on Monday, April 12, and the two soaps will have hour-long specials on Tuesday to catch up.

Emmerdale will be on at 7 p.m. and Coronation Street will follow at 8 p.m.

Many fans had expressed their rage at the soaps being canceled, with one writing: “So stupid Corrie being canceled because of Prince Philip, how does that make sense. “

Another declaimed: “Why do we need a tribute to Prince Philip instead of #Emmerdale?” There can’t be anything they haven’t already said about him on TV today! “

A third added: “‘Say whatever you like about Prince Philip, but I just know that if this tough time he would have wanted us to watch #EastEnders #ripprincephilip”.
