They say “what makes you bad, makes you better” and that appears to be the case for many hungover Brits who managed to continue their New Year’s parties well into January 1.
Partygoers in England were given the green light to celebrate despite Omicron fears – making the occasion relatively more free than the previous year.
And as Brits do, they didn’t back down from the chance to make up for lost time with an even bigger binge.
On New Year’s Eve, the streets of major English cities, including Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham rang out in cheers as Brits united with each other – hugging and toasting the New Year.

But rather than hearing the groans and grumbles of hungover Brits on January 1, the party continued as photos of even more antics have emerged.
Despite pubs, clubs and restaurants heaving the night before, the queues continued to get into venues again.
In Leeds, groups of glamourous women were ready to hit the clubs in short skirts and heels – seemingly taking advantage of the warmest New Year on record.
Some blokes even managed to get so rowdy from the booze, they started throwing punches in the middle of the road.
In later shots, the bloke who seemed to have been ganged up on by two others, walked away shirtless with scratches on his body.
Reports on New Year’s Eve claimed many of those celebrating in English pubs travelled from as far as Dundee, Dunbar and Fife to hit the clubs and bars, Chronicle Live reports.
It is unclear whether many stayed for the ongoing celebrations or whether they returned home where fears of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 are running high.
Instead, the PM urged revellers to “enjoy New Year but in a cautious and sensible way”.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid warned “people should remain cautious” as he urged people to take lateral flow tests and celebrate outside if they could.
