Every TV show cancelled tomorrow as huge Coronation schedule shake-up leaves fans fuming | The Sun

May 6, 2023

KING Charles' Coronation will cause a huge schedule shake up across multiple channels this weekend.

The Coronation is set to be televised around the world on Saturday, and a number of UK networks have dedicated a large portion of their schedules to the coverage.

The BBC is using not one, but two channels, to document every moment of King Charles and Queen Camilla's crowning.

It means BBC Breakfast will only air for one and a half hours, from 6am until 7.30am instead of for its usual four hours.

Then at 7.30am, The Coronation of TM the King and Queen Camilla: The Preparation will air with Kirsty Young at the helm.

At 10.15am, coverage of the build up to the procession and the Coronation itself will start and go on until 1pm, before The Coronation of HM the King: The Celebration begins.

It means Saturday Kitchen Live, Mary Berry: Love to Cook and Football Focus have all been scrapped.

Then in the evening, game shows including Blankety Blank and Pointless Celebrities are making way for The Coronation: A Day to Remember.

BBC Two will air the exact same coverage as BBC One up until 3pm, replacing its usual schedule of sport and cookery shows.

Meanwhile over on ITV, Good Morning Britain will air from 6am until 8.30am before the Coronation coverage begins.

The network's Coronation coverage continues until 3pm.

From 5.30pm normal Saturday scheduling is resumed with Tipping Point, In For a Penny and Britain's Got Talent among the shows hitting our screens.

However, some TV fans were not impressed with the wall-to-wall coverage across the various channels on Saturday.

One moaned on Twitter: "Gorging on @Spotify and binging on
@Netflix over the coming days. Have to do something to escape from the constant #Coronation bilge on radio & TV."

Another tweeted: "During big public events like the #Coronation, why don’t broadcasters take it in turns to show them live and free up all the other TV channels to show normal TV. Not everyone is freakishly obsessed with the Royal family."
