Wednesday looks set to be the hottest day of the week with top temperatures of 27ºC predicted for London and the south-east, making it hotter than even Ibiza in Spain.
The warm and sunny weather will set a new record for the hottest day of 2020, after the mercury hit 26.6ºC in Cornwall on Good Friday.
Temperatures are expected to remain hot for the remainder of the week – although the Met Office also predicts the risk of thunderstorms in the south and east of England and Wales on Thursday.
