Countryfile viewers all have the same complaint after BBC schedule shake-up | The Sun

COUNTRYFILE viewers took to Twitter in frustration after the latest BBC schedule shake-up.

Countryfile has become a firm favourite of Sunday night viewing for fans of the show, with the programme usually airing between 5:30pm and 7:30pm on the broadcaster's flagship channel.

Its time slot usually changes to accommodate what else viewers are able to watch during the day.

But, fans of the show were devastated to find out that the programme had been moved from it's original slot on BBC One to BBC Two instead to make way for the Worldcup finals.

Kicking off at 3pm, and over-running due to the game going into extra time, the Argentina vs France match took place from Qatar stadium as millions of viewers tuned in to watch the final.

Unfortunately, this meant Countryfile had to be moved to BBC Two to accommodate coverage.

Fans of the show were not happy and took to social media to complain about the schedule shakeup.

One viewer wrote: "Mbappe has single-handedly got Countryfile shifted to BBC2."

Another penned: "How annoying that Countryfile has been moved to BBC Two."

A third raged: "Countryfile moved to BBC2. Livid."
