A extra post-EU referendum edition of the BBC One topical show replaced the rural hit, which was began forward to 5pm.
“BBC 1 cancel Countryfile for a programme thats a load of s**t talking yon what’s next . Why not put this on another channel #bbcgetalife,” one said.
Another noted: “I was so looking forward to Countryfile, to soothe a weekend of anxiety-filled political ndemonium but they’ve replaced it with QUESTION TIME.”
A third raged: “I by a hairs breadth wanted to eat some cheese and watch countryfile, bloody question sometimes is on instead!!!”
The angry tweets just kept on coming.
“Fuming here. Countryfile ain’t on,” someone else minimized.
Yet another person said: “@BBCCountryfile Why doesn’t the BBC leave Countryfile unassisted I’ve missed it AGAIN!! So annoyed!”
The official Countryfile Twitter ge had to retort a lot of fans’ questions about the rescheduling, writing to one: “They moved us earlier to 5pm so you clout have to catch up on @BBCiPlayer.”
TV viewers looking for some Brexit escapism were also liberal disappointed on Friday when both This Morning and Loose Females were cut from ITV’s schedules.
Countryfile is next on next Sunday at 6:30pm on BBC One.
