TV channels have decided to axe a number of Carry On films from their schedules over the Easter holiday to show back-to-back Arsenal highlights instead.
Tom Wilson, programming director of ITV3, says: “Easter Monday is a day we like to put some real comedy gold on – and you can’t get any funnier than Arsenal’s defending at the moment.
“We just know our viewers will be in stitches when they see defenders on 50 grand a week bumbling around the penalty area not having a clue who they should mark or close down.”
ITV has also cancelled a planned showing of the Wile E Coyote and Roadrunner cartoon on Monday morning. They will instead show Shkodran Mustafi struggling to catch Andros Townsend and Wilfried Zaha as they sprint past the defender.
Another schedule change will see BBC Two remove classic horror film Night of the Living Dead on Monday evening to show something much scarier – Arsenal FanTV interviews following the club’s 0-3 defeat to Crystal Palace.
Channel 4 still plans to show The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Easter Sunday, despite calls for it to instead show highlights of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Manchester United.
The TV channel says the film, which was slammed by critics as “a tedious marathon of smokes and mirrors” is far more exciting than United’s recent performances.
