And it punters can unwind after Christmas Day with a trip to the footy in packed-out stadiums.

Mr Johnson’s announcement means Boxing Day football will be able to go ahead with crowds in England, unlike in Scotland where they will be limited to 500 fans.

While Christmas and Boxing Day are safe from being blighted by restrictions, Downing Street insiders refused to rule out tougher rules immediately after the weekend.

Mr Johnson could yet announce plans for restrictions ahead of the Christmas weekend, but time has run out to get them voted on and introduced before early next week.

He will spend tomorrow mulling over new hospitalisation data before making a decision on what measures may be needed next week.

But with the House of Commons requiring a minimum of 24 hours to be recalled and a day to legislate on new regulations, Christmas Day plans and crucial Boxing Day football fixtures are safe from legally enforced lockdown measures on crowds being capped.
