"We simply cannot have the number of people who congregate on New Year's Eve congregating. What we are working on, and I am not in a position yet to say what, as we are still working out the details [but] ... we will do something people can enjoy in the comfort and safety of living rooms."

It comes as Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed he would not rule out a second national lockdown with statistics showing coronavirus cases doubling every seven to eight days. There were 3,300 recorded new cases on Thursday alone.

Meanwhile, the government has placed tighter restrictions on parts of the North-West, Midlands and West Yorkshire. From Tuesday, separate households will be banned from meeting each other at home or in private gardens while restaurants and pubs will be forced to close early in parts of Merseyside and Lancashire.
