A new air date is yet to be confirmed.

Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, this evening’s (9 September) episode of Home and Away has been postponed.

Following the announcement last evening that the Queen had passed away at the age of 96 and that the United Kingdom has commenced a time of national mourning, Channel 5 announced a number of schedule modifications.

As a result, World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys will begin broadcasting at 2 p.m. today instead of Home and Away’s 1.45 p.m. slot, while Iceland with Alexander Armstrong will begin airing at 1.20 p.m.

EastEnders will now show on BBC Two today evening at 7 p.m. while BBC One dedicates the entire day to special programming honouring the Queen. This comes after a series of significant schedule changes across UK networks.

After being substituted with longer news programming yesterday evening, Coronation Street and Emmerdale will not show tonight as scheduled. A new air date for the two soap operas has not yet been determined.

Daytime programs like This Morning, Loose Women, Dickinson’s Real Deal, Tipping Point, and The Chase have all been canceled in favor of an all-day news special on ITV.

The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral in the late afternoon, according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace yesterday. King Charles III, the newly crowned monarch, paid honor to his mother after the announcement.

He remarked, “For me and all members of my family, the passing of my dear Mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a period of the greatest sadness.”

“We deeply lament the loss of a beloved Mother and beloved Sovereign. I’m confident that the nation, the Realms, the Commonwealth, and a huge number of people all over the world will be devastated by her passing.

“My family and I will be strengthened and comforted through this time of loss and change by our knowledge of the reverence and heartfelt affection in which The Queen so frequently believed.
