Crowds have been enjoying the tail-end of the mini heatwave outdoors across the country.
Parks, beaches and beauty spots have been packed full of sunseekers as temperatures soar.
But speaking in a video on social media this morning, the PM issued a warning to Brits planning to see loved ones for the first time in months over Easter.
He said the country is “not yet” at the stage where families and friends can meet inside, even if they have been vaccinated.
Mr Johnson said: “We’re very much in a world where you can meet friends and family outdoors under the rule of six or two households.
“And even though friends and family members may be vaccinated, the vaccines are not giving 100 per cent protection and that’s why we just need to be cautious.
“We don’t think they entirely reduce or remove the risk of transmission.”
His warning comes as Britain braces for a “massive step down” in temperatures on Sunday night into Monday, with all areas across the UK approaching freezing.
Up to six inches of “severe” could fall in some parts with “nowhere immune” from -5C Arctic plunge.
