Millions of sunseekers are expected to throng parks and beaches at seaside resorts as Britain takes advantage of the scorching weather.

Summer is set to return with a vengeance this weekend as temperatures on bank holiday Monday could reach as high as 26°C or 27°C.

Early indications show the hot weather and sunshine could last until the middle of May after a miserable end to April, according to forecasters.

Temperatures could reach 27C (81F) in parts of England on Monday, which would make it the hottest early May Bank Holiday on record.

The coldest daytime temperature for the same Monday was 10 years ago in 2008, when it was 14.2C.

Saturday and Sunday will be dry and warm, the Met Office said, with sunny spells expected for most of England and Wales.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson told Sky News: "We have a lovely weekend on the way, with high pressure dominating".

"On Monday temperatures will range from 13 to 19 degrees with highest values in Connacht and coolest on eastern coasts due to easterly breezes".

Tuesday is likely to stay warm but the weather will start to turn during the rest of the week.

It is set to be even warmer than the French Riviera and the Costa del Sol, with 8.5 million auto journeys forecast between Friday and Monday.

There will be blue skies and high temperatures throughout England and Wales with the south-east of England getting the best of the weather.

Bookmaker Betway is giving even odds that London will be the hottest place in the United Kingdom on Bank Holiday Monday.

"Birmingham comes next in the market at 7/2 ahead of Cardiff at 5/1 and we are 11/2 for Belfast to top the temperature charts".

By Bank Holiday Monday, record-breaking highs of 24C could see Suffolk and Essex hotter than the French Riviera or Costa Del Sol.
