He will warn the virus is getting worse across the country, and extra measures need to be put in place now to avoid another national lockdown.

Ministers want to avoid shutting down shops and offices once again if they can help it.

And schools will be the absolute last thing to close too to try and keep kids' education on track.

This evening at 8pm he will address the nation with a live TV clip too.

He's expected to announce:

This morning Boris gathered his top team for a Cabinet meeting to discuss the new rules.

And he held a COBRA meeting with the leaders of the devolved administrations, too.

It's expected that Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will follow suit with new rules.

Pub-goers will go from pubs back home to booze after 10pm curfew, ministers warned
