Why isn’t Unforgotten on tonight?

Unforgotten has been a popular crime drama since it started airing back in 2015, and it follows two detectives in London.

Nicola Walker plays DCI Cassie Stuart and Sanjeev Bhaskar is DI Sunny Khan, and they returned for the fourth season in February 2021.

Two episodes have aired so far and in the latest instalment, four suspects had been identified after a body was found in a freezer.

The suspects were either ex-cops or they were still serving officers, and viewers are keen to find out what happens next.

The third episode will not air as expected tonight and will air on Tuesday (March 9) at 9pm instead on ITV.

The drama has been taken off the air tonight to make way for the highly-anticipated Oprah Winfrey interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The two-hour interview aired on Sunday night on CBS and ITV was given the rights to stream the conversation.

Heated discussions have already taken place surrounding the interview, which touched on marriage, motherhood and the public pressure of being a part of the Royal Family.

The interview will air from 9pm until 10.50pm and it is expected to be one of the hottest talking points of the week.

This means episode three of Unforgotten season four will air between 9pm and 10pm on Tuesday.

In the next episode, Sunny (played by Sanjeev Bhaskar) and Cassie (Nicola Walker) will be keeping a close eye on the four probationary officers who are suspects.

Meanwhile the rest of the team in charge of investigating the murder look for the missing parts of the victim, who had been mutilated.

Each of the four suspects denies knowing the victims, and the synopsis adds: “Boulting discovers Walsh (Ash Rizi) was cautioned three weeks before his death and believes it was with Ram (Phaldut Sharma), while Collier (Lewis Reeves) manages to locate the rest of Walsh’s body.”

The crime drama continues to be a popular part of ITV’s evening schedule and viewers can expect more from the creator, Chris Lang.

Lang has just written scripts for a four-part series about John Darwin, who faked his death in 2002 to fraudulently collect his life insurance payout.

The ITV press centre has reminded fans of the change of schedule for the upcoming Unforgotten episode.

They said: “Unforgotten will air on Tuesday 9 March at 9pm (not Monday 8th March) for one week only following the news that @ITV has acquired the Oprah With Meghan and Harry interview.”

The official Twitter account for Unforgotten added: “Urgent request from Cassie: set your reminders for next week to TUESDAY (not Monday). After that, we return to Monday for the final three episodes. Carry on team.”

Fans were not happy with the date change, eager to find out more about Cassie and Sunny’s latest findings.

One responded: “No, that’s really not fair. Chat shows should not be bumping Unforgotten off their scheduled slot. Thankfully I only have to wait an extra day. Thanks for the heads up!”

Another added: “I think they should have just stuck Meghan and Harry on the Tuesday instead! Making me wait an extra day. How dare they.”

A third said: “Grr. How dare ITV bump you. Off to check my TV reminder…….also remind self to boycott ITV all day on Monday.

Luckily viewers only have to wait an extra day before the next episode airs on ITV.

The interview with Prince Harry and Meghan is expected to draw in seven million viewers.

The iconic interview between journalist Martin Bashir and Diana, the Princess of Wales, had close to 23million viewers.

Unforgotten will continue next Monday on ITV at 9pm
