The reality show returns for a fourth series on Easter Monday at 9pm, but will not air the following night due to coverage of the Champions League second-leg match between Chelsea and Liverpool.
An insider told the Daily Star: "It's not very good launching a nightly show on a Monday and then taking it off 24 hours later for the footie. We have no idea what fans or even [head chef] Marco Pierre White will think."
It was recently reported that producers were concerned about the new series after struggling to sign up stars.
ITV has since announced the full lineup, which includes Anthea Turner, Ms Dynamite and Adrian Edmondson.
