Gogglebox fans set for upset as show is moved in major schedule shake-up

Gogglebox: Baby Ezra ‘poos’ on Ellie during show

Fans of Gogglebox will be frustrated to learn that the Channel 4 show is being rescheduled tonight.

This is to make way for the England men’s football team taking on Australia in a friendly match ahead of their campaign to qualify for the Euro 2024 tournament.

The award-winning show, which features ordinary people giving their honest thoughts on the week’s television, is usually broadcast at 9pm on Friday nights.

However tonight’s (Friday 13) edition will see the show postponed until after the match will will last at least three hours.

This means that fans will have to wait until 10pm for their fix of the telly favourite, which has been on air since 2013.

Tonight’s show will see the armchair critics offering their views on the first week of the rebooted Big Brother and Coronation Street’s dramatic week which saw the culmination of killer Stephen Reid;s storyline.

It is not the only show affected by the match as Channel 4 News, which normally broadcasts at 7pm, has been pushed back an hour to 6pm to accommodate the football.

There is further disruption to the schedule next week due to the football as the Great British Bake Off has been shunted from its usual Tuesday night slot.

The hugely popular show is usually broadcast at 8pm on Tuesdays but next week, England are playing Italy in a Euro 2024 qualifier which will air from 7pm.

England have previously beaten the Italians as part of the first leg of qualifications, with a second victory almost guaranteeing the squad a place in the next round.
