Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday unveiled his ‘cautious’ lockdown exit strategy that could see life in England return to something near normal by June at the earliest.
Grateful: The North-born TV star said it was the ‘little things’ she was most excited about and insisted she wasn’t going to take anything for granted anymore.
Mr Johnson’s plan to ease restrictions will be split into four distinct stages and will see the country treated as a whole, with no reversion to a tiered system.
The release of England’s third national lockdown, imposed amid a winter coronavirus outbreak in January, will begin on March 8 when all schools across the country return.
Rules are then to be lifted every five weeks to allow four weeks to measure the impact of the changes and give an additional week’s notice before the next step takes effect.

Outdoor gatherings for up to six people – the rule of six – or two households will be allowed from March 29 and non-essential shops, hairdressers and barbers will be allowed to return on April 12 “ at most early, ” the prime minister said.
Two households can meet indoors from May 17, with a view to returning to normal from June 21.
However, the government stressed that the dates set in the roadmap are “ not earlier ” and that they could change depending on the scale of the coronavirus epidemic.
Along with the excitement of the easing of lockdown restrictions, the former Gogglebox star recently revealed that she hopes to move into her new home with boyfriend Scott Dobinson in March.
She participated in an Instagram Q&A fan and has been asked when she would move into her new home, to which she replied, “Hopefully early March”.
Scarlett, who has been dating Scott for over two years, openly revealed to MailOnline that her first date with her boyfriend was ‘the worst date of my life’.
While promoting the new Go Ahead ‘Snaccident’ campaign, she recalled her first official date with her cop and said: ‘It was probably the worst date I have ever had!
“We went to get some food and he just chatted about himself, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got another one where it’s all about them.’
“ I know a lot of girls would be like, ‘Well I’m just not going to see him again,’ but I thought I wanted to confront him and find out why he only talked about him so much.
“ I asked him at Starbucks the next day and I said, ‘Scott, you never asked me questions.’ ‘
The TV sensation, who rose to fame on Gogglebox in 2014, confirmed her boyfriend was reluctant to ask personal questions because he didn’t want her to think he had bad intentions or was only interested in her career. .
She continued, “ He said, ‘If I’m being honest, I feel like because you are who you are I didn’t want it to sound like I was looking for information and I didn’t didn’t want to ask you too much because of that. ‘
“I was like, ‘Oh, that makes sense,’ and from there we were great. He’s just the nicest human. I’ve never met someone like him who doesn’t have a bad bone in his body, he’s the sweetest.
