BRITAIN will bask in more high temperatures today -with a sizzling 30C heatwave expected to blast Britain this week.

The Met Office's Aidan McGivern said "many places will be fine with warm sunny spells for much of the time" – after parts of the UK clocking in HOTTER than Spain during Saturday.

Highs of 23C are expected in the South, East Anglia and in London while the north-west wilol see highs of between 19 and 20C.

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.

Coral spokesman John Hill said: “It has been a sweltering week so far and things could still get hotter. We have slashed the odds on 30C or higher being recorded before the end of the weekend.

"This week could be a taste of what is to come over the next few months as our betting suggests we may be set for the hottest summer ever in the UK,” he added.

    BRITS LEFT RED-FACED AFTER STAYING OUT TOO LONG IN THE SUN THIS WEEK

    Dozy Brits were left red-faced after staying out too long in the sun this week.

    Social media pics showed the body areas they’d remembered to cover up — or not — in a painful British bake-off.

    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.
