Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas

Boris Johnson will appear live on television tomorrow to reveal new coronavirus rules for Christmas.

A tougher tier system will be introduced and explained for when England comes out of a national lockdown on December 2 in an attempt to limit Covid-19 infections.

Following months of speculation, the Prime Minister will outline what Brits can and cannot do over the festive period with regards to where we can go and who we can meet.

A so-called four-nation 'truce' will reportedly place those living in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland under the same rules of celebrating with family and friends.

Scientists warned last week that for every day of eased restrictions, it would take up to five days of tough lockdown measures to make up for it.

But Mr Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak have emphasised the need to return to a "functioning economy", and a source said: "We've got to get normality back."

The Prime Minister will deliver his speech about a winter plan on Monday via a video link as he continues to self-isolate after being exposed to someone who later tested positive for Covid-19.

The former three-tier structure is likely to be revised and toughened up. It is likely to last until the spring when it is hoped at least one coronavirus vaccine will have been fully rolled out.

His announcement will dash Brits' hopes of a "normal" Christmas this year with the announcement of a tougher tier system from December 2.

As part of the changes, the 10pm curfew on pubs, bars and restaurants could be scrapped in England when the coronavirus lockdown is lifted on December 2.

In an attempt to boost the hospitality industry, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is understood to be extend opening hours by another hour, giving punters until 11pm before boozers have to clear out.
