BBC slammed over Coronation coverage as major Saturday shows forced off air | The Sun

SATURDAY Kitchen fans have been left fuming after the show was pulled off air today for the Coronation.

Many were particularly unhappy because coverage of the event is being shown on both BBC One and Two.

Saturday Kitchen Live usually airs at 10am on BBC One for an hour and a half but not be shown at all today.

One viewer fumed: "If BBC1 and BBC2 are LITERALLY going to show the same thing, why not just close one channel for the day?

"Or – here’s an idea – just show Saturday Kitchen as usual on one channel and give an option to those not interested in watching endless talking heads for hours on end."

Another tweeted: "Why no Saturday kitchen? Why bbc one and bbc two?!! Eurgh."

It's not just Saturday Kitchen Live that won't air on the channel today – Mary Berry: Love to Cook and Football Focus have been scrapped too.
