Legendary BBC show in major schedule shake-up as it loses primetime slot | The Sun

THE build up to the Eurovision Song Contest has caused some major scheduling conflicts.

With the final airing on Saturday, Eurovision has replaced a number of shows in the TV schedule.

Now, fan favourite football show Match of the Day has been shifted over to a new channel to make way for the song contest.

The show usually airs on BBC1, but has now had to make way for Eurovision and will be airing Saturday at 10pm on BBC2.

Taking place in Liverpool on behalf of The Ukraine, the singing competition will also be available to watch on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel.

Last night we saw the first round of the semi-finals, judged by France, Germany and Italy.
