The Prime Minister will address the nation at 7pm on Monday to deliver his roadmap out of lockdown.
Boris Johnson is expected to lay out a four-step plan to lead Britain out of the country’s 3rd national locking and back to normality.
According to the Sunday Times, the PM will address the nation directly at 7pm after first addressing MPs in the House of Commons at 3.30pm.
Schools are expected to open from March 8 as planned but there it is not known when social distancing restrictions will be lifted, or when shops, pubs and restaurants will reopen.
The plan will aim to set out a pathway for the country, but Mr Johnson has repeatedly said he will be guided by "data not dates".
After schools return, the government is expected to allow two households – with at group of six people – to meet up outside from Easter.
Gym-goers will reportedly not be allowed back in the weight room until April, while plans to reopen the hospitality industry will remain "fluid".
Pubs and restaurants are likely to be allowed to operate outdoors first, but the Government is yet to give a ball park date.
Mr Johnson is also expected to speak on the accelerated rollout of the coronavirus vaccine, which aims to give all UK adults the jab by July 31.
Adults aged 50 and over – as well as those with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk – will be offered a vaccine by April 15 at the latest under the expedited plans.
By July 31, all adults should have been offered a jab – though the order of priority for those under 50 has yet to be outlined by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).

More than 17.2 million people have now received their first dose of a vaccine at one of the 1,500 vaccination sites across the country, and 600,000 have received their second.
Upon hitting the 15million deadline, the Prime Minister said: "Hitting 15 million vaccinations was a significant milestone – but there will be no let up, and I want to see the rollout go further and faster in the coming weeks.
"We will now aim to offer a jab to every adult by the end of July, helping us protect the most vulnerable sooner, and take further steps to ease some of the restrictions in place.
"But there should be no doubt – the route out of lockdown will be cautious and phased, as we all continue to protect ourselves and those around us."
