The serial drama has been moved to make way for extra coverage of the corona virus pandemic which continues to wreak havoc around the world.
The soap's bosses made the announcement via their Twitter.
"Due to an extended news bulletin tonight, #EastEnders will now be on @BBCOne at 8pm."
The drama from Albert Square usually kicks off at 7.30pm on a Tuesday, but the COVID-19 pandemic have forced the BBC into a major schedule change.
The show's most loyal fans are not happy about the sudden change and having to wait an extra half an hour to get their fix.
One fan raged: "So #Eastenders is at 8pm instead of 7:30pm. UNNECESSARY!"
Another fan tweeted: "#EastEnders moved to 8pm tonight In late change!"
Over 190,000 people have caught the virus around the world and over 7500 have died.
71 people have died in the UK, the third most in Europe behind Spain with 509 and Italy with 2158 deaths.

She was left beaten and on the kitchen floor as Gray went to the Queen Vic with her family.
The hair stylist was in agony as she pulled up her top and revealed the bruises she sustained at the hands of her twisted husband.
She had finally had enough and was leaving the house when she told Gray she had taken Kheerat Panesar's job offer at a call centre.
Feeling as though he had lost his wife, the abuser promised it would never happen again, but Chantelle wasn’t so sure.
She told him to go and fight for Whitney’s freedom and Gray was left alone in his thoughts.
