Brits are set to melt in a 25C heatwave on the horizon as a heat plume could bring the hottest weak of the year.

The latest forecast claims next weekend will see hotter than average temperatures sizzle across the country and into May.

Monday will see 19C which is 5C above average with seven days of blue skies and sunny spells.

Tuesday will bring some form of showers but it won't put a damper on the hot week.

Highs of 15C midweek will allow Brits to still enjoy the outside, but the Met Office predict temperatures will warm up again by the weekend.
