When will the green list be reviewed and what countries might be added?

In new rules brought in on Monday May 17, 12 countries have been added to England's 'green list' for quarantine-free travel.

Speaking at a press conference from Downing Street, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps previously said that the list would be 'necessarily cautious', adding that "we must make sure the countries we reconnect with are safe."

The list will be reviewed every three weeks, at which time more countries may be added to each list.

Here's what we know about when the next review is, and which countries might be added.
