Why was the episode not on?

Fans of Eat Well For Less? were hoping we were back into a regular broadcast cycle after episode 3 aired on Wednesday, June 26th.

But one week later (Wednesday, July 3rd), episode 4 was nowhere to be seen.

Instead, BBC One – the home of Eat Well For Less? – was airing the FIFA Women’s World Cup semi-final match of Netherlands v Sweden. The game coverage began at 7.30 pm for an 8 pm kickoff, which is the usual time the show starts.

As the Women’s World Cup is going on, the normal TV schedule will be affected. Not just Eat Well For Less? but for all shows.

Eat Well For Less? series 6 will return soon

Episode 4 will show just a few days later on Friday, July 5th at 8 pm.

So you won’t have to wait too long to get your weekly fix!
