The TV schedule is set to be different tonight (February 3) as shows like Gladiators alter their start time due to the Guinness Six Nations matches.

Shows also affected by the TV schedule change include Ant and Dec’s Limitless Win and The Masked Singer.

The Six Nations tournament kicked off on Friday (February 2) with last year's winners Ireland taking on France.

The two fixtures on Saturday (February 3) will cause a major change in the schedules for BBC One and ITV1 with several shows being cancelled and others airing at different times.

When is Gladiators on tonight?

If you’re preparing to watch the new Gladiators episode tonight, the show will be on a bit later than usual.

Although you might have been expecting to watch it at 5.50pm, it will instead air at 7.10pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer after the Wales v Scotland match ends.

The episode will end at 8.10pm this evening.

Gladiators returned to TV screens across the UK for the first time in nearly 24 years on January 13 with a new batch of Gladiators ready to compete in a series of new and classic challenges and games against a brave set of contenders in the ultimate test of strength and speed.

Father and son duo Bradley and Barney Walsh present the new series.
