We asked our readers what they were most looking forward to doing today, and through the rest of this week, as more businesses are able to open up as lockdown restrictions are eased.

Of the 262 people who took part in our poll on Twitter, 45 per cent said they wanted a trim more than eating or drinking out, shopping, or going to the gym.

In second place was eating or drinking out, with 34 per cent, shopping was third with 13 per cent, and just eight per cent said their top priority was heading for a work out.

While Julie Burgess added: “HAIR cut, can not wait, have an appointment on the 13th.”
