ITV has confirmed that they are pushing back the upcoming episode an hour as England go head-to-head with Italy in the Euros 2020 final.

The match, which could make history and see our nation become Euro champions for the first time ever, is set to kick off at 8pm. This means that it will clash with Love Island, which usually airs on ITV2 at 9pm.
