For many people, this year's Father's Day will be slightly different as the COVID-19 pandemic continues across the UK.

Earlier in the year, Mother's Day was very different for families across the UK as it came after the lockdown was announced by the Government.

But what about Father's Day? When is it this year and will we be out of lockdown?

When is Father's Day this year and what day does it fall on?

Will we still be in lockdown for Father's Day?

Lockdown measures were announced on March 23, and recently England has slightly eased some measures.

While we're not expected to be out of lockdown completely for Father's Day, new regulations announced recently mean friends and family of up to six people can meet in a park or in a garden, as long as social distancing is happening.

This may mean Father's Day celebrations have to take place in parks and gardens this year.
