Phillip Scofield has revealed on today’s episode of This Morning he’s at ‘breaking point’ over coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
The presenter confessed he’s ‘had enough’ as he and Holly Willoughby hosted a debate on whether Christmas should be celebrated or cancelled this year after the Government announced three households will be able to mix for five days over the festive period.
‘Everyone’s at breaking point,’ Phil said, not long after Father Christmas declared he’s immune from Covid-19.
‘I know I am, actually, as a matter of fact. I am quite happy to speak for a lot of people and say I’ve had enough.
‘I will follow the rules, but I’ve had enough.’
He continued: ‘As far as everyone’s mental health is concerned, taking a little slice of Christmas is going to be good for everyone.’
Coronavirus restrictions will be relaxed from December 23 – 27 in England, Wales and Scotland.
Northern Ireland has been granted a longer window from December 22 – 28, to allow for travel time between the nations.
Under the rules, families from up to three households will be allowed to meet up indoors or outdoors in all four of the UK nations.
Each nation is currently following their own separate Covid-19 restrictions, which will continue until the relaxation period and will be re-implemented after it ends.
In England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, people are permitted to form a temporary ‘Christmas bubble’ and mix indoors. The bubbles permit up to three households.
It does not matter how many people live in each household, meaning there is no limit to the amount of people that can form one bubble. However, the rules on what constitutes as a bubble differ.
If you live in England and have formed a support bubble with another household, this will count as one household.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
