And with Euro 2020 still on our screens, Coronation Street, Emmerdale and EastEnders will once again be available to stream all in one go on ITV Hub and BBC iPlayer.
That is, if you’re keen on that sort of thing!
Sarah Platt is made an offer in Corrie, while EastEnders’ Linda Carter is worried when she receives a gift from Max.
And Emmerdale celebrates its first ever Pride with some assistance from Drag Race UK’s The Vivienne!
Cleo McQueen, meanwhile, sets her sights on putting a stop to abuser Pete Buchanan once and for all in Hollyoaks, which will air as normal on E4.
