I feel the chances of this going to plan will be very slim. In the best case scenario, Boris will need to get on at 6:30pm exactly, talk for 15 or so minutes allowing enough time for the BBC to recap and wrap up at 7:05pm to have any chance of getting to Strictly on time.
I don’t think Boris gives two hoots about finishing on time for Strictly. That’s the last thing on his mind right now 😂

Don't need a recap, probably go straight to Strictly from the conference

The EPG is all over the place understandably.... I’m sure it’ll update in due course.

Considering that it was clear at pretty much exactly 5pm that the government announcement (A) was being delayed at all and (B) was specifically being delayed until 6:30pm (as opposed to just for a few minutes etc), they could've done something like move Celebrity Mastermind to 5:30pm rather than dragging out the News Special right up until the formal network bulletin at 6pm.

90 minutes of hot air about what may or may not be in the impending government announcement, immediately followed by a standard news bulletin, on Saturday teatime BBC One! 🙄

All much calmer with the EPG on Virgin - it’s not been updated at all. (This is standard, and rubbish.)

I sometimes wonder if Virgin Media realise they have a EPG

It’s something I’m not going to miss when my contract is up in April and I go back to Sky.

If only the BBC had a separate channel that could be dedicated to short notice and ad hoc events, so that BBC 1 and 2 could simply carry on with their schedules.
I'm not sure given the 1970s FA Cup Final style build up of comment, and all the leaks, whether anything Johnson is going to say will come as a surprise anyway
