Good afternoon, welcome to just answer. I am a solicitor and reviewing your question now for you.
It depends on what type of tenancy you gave them. If you somehow gave them an Assured shorthold tenancy then notice period under the current covid regulations is 6 months and you would need to serve them with a section 21 notice. If you gave them a different type of tenancy or if you gave them a licence then please feel free to send me follow up details and I will be glad to guide you further. All the best.
You would need to have given a valid section 21 notice and therefore you would have to issue a new one giving 6 months. However as you are friends perhaps your friend will still leave as agreed, this is to cover your self legally.
You are welcome
