Christmas has come early! ITV has announced that we can watch the soaps ahead of broadcast this year!
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love the soaps at Christmas and this year, I won’t have to wait to unwrap my festive TV treats. ITV announces plans to make Christmas period evening shows available on ITV Hub each morning, ahead of their evening broadcast.
The Christmas Day episodes of Coronation Street and Emmerdale will be able to stream through ITV Hub from the morning they are due to air. It’s not just the soaps either.
When can I watch?
The full list of shows, which will be made available on ITV Hub from 7am, ahead of their evening broadcast, include:
- Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day episodes of Coronation Street and Emmerdale
- Tipping Point: Lucky Stars Christmas Special (Christmas Eve, 3.55pm)
- The Chase Celebrity Christmas Special (Christmas Eve, 5:30pm)
- Gino’s Italian Family Adventure: A Festive Feast (Christmas Eve, 6.30pm)
- Bradley and Barney: Breaking Dad at Christmas (Christmas Eve, 9pm)
- Christmas Comedy Club with Lost Voice Guy (Christmas Eve 10.30pm)
- Paul O Grady: For The Love of Dogs at Christmas (Christmas Day, 5.30pm)
- The Masked Singalong (Christmas Day, 6pm)
- The Larkins Christmas Special (Christmas Day 9pm)
- Saturday Night Takeaway Presents: Double Trouble (Boxing Day 4.15pm)
- The Chase Celebrity Christmas Special (Boxing Day, 5pm)
- Celebrity Catchphrase: Christmas Special (Boxing Day, 6pm)
- All Star Musicals at Christmas (Boxing Day 8pm)
- Billy Connolly: My Absolute Pleasure (Boxing Day 9.30pm)
Now I just need to figure out when I will find the time to watch. After all, Christmas Day is always super manic. I might very well wait for Boxing Day and watch both The Christmas Day and the Boxing Day episodes back to back. At least then, I won’t have to wait in between episodes and I can watch all of the drama play out in one go!
