It comes after Britain reached highs of 26C – with parts of the UK clocking in HOTTER than Spain.

As Brits packed out beaches and parks to soak up the rays, tourists in Ibiza were pictured sheltering under umbrellas during downpours as temperatures barely reached 18C.

The UK's sunny spell will also be warmer than other popular destinations, including Portuguese archipelago Madeira, where it will be a pitiful 16C and rainy, and Nice in southern France where it is only set to reach 22C.

Highs of 24C are expected in London and 21C in Newcastle today – but Met Office meteorologist Sarah Kent warned it will “not be wall-to-wall sunshine”.

Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds to 1-2 (from 6-4) on 30C or higher being recorded in the UK before the end of the weekend.

The firm is offering 4-5 that this month ends as the hottest June on record, while it is 4-6 that this summer is the hottest ever in the UK.
