UK is bracing itself for the second day of severe thunderstorms and showers today as a 27C heatwave is due to strike later this week.Parts of the country are set to be hit with a gorgeous hot spell due to a tropical North African blast sweeping from the south.Although the warm air will be creating higher temperatures, it is likely the sunny spells will be broken up with potentially heavy showers. Thunder and lightning is forecasted until 10pm on Monday night, with a yellow warning in force for a large part of the country.The warning runs from Northern Ireland to Oxford, as well as Manchester and the Midlands.Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "During the early part of next week it’s possible to see low to mid 20s fairly widely, and high 20s around the South East if we get sunshine associated with this plume."However, as I mentioned, it does bring the threat of thundery outbreaks at the same time."Netweather predict highs of 26C at around 4pm on Tuesday (May 17), meaning that it will be the hottest day of the year so far.

Normal People’s Paul Mescal and musician Phoebe Bridgers kiss on street like giddy teenagers amid engagement rumours
Whether Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers are engaged or not, they are clearly just as in love as ever and don’t care who knows it. The Normal People actor and his singer-songwriter girlfriend, who have been dating for two years, were pictured leaving a yoga class in Los Angeles last week but the hot and sweaty action didn’t stop once they left the studio. With both of their yoga mats tucked firmly under his arm (we love a man who can multitask), Paul, 26, swooped Phoebe, 27, into his available arm and planted a kiss on the musician, who in turn went in for the kill passionately with one hand around his neck and the other on his waist. Moments earlier, Phoebe had emerged from the yoga class with a huge smile on her face so the exercise – and Paul – must be doing something right.The couple have kept fans guessing about the status of their relationship as the engagement rumours continue to swirl. Last month, the stars attended Coachella music festival in California where Phoebe reportedly introduced Paul to others as her ‘fiance’. A partygoer claimed that the pair made no secret of the fact they were engaged, according to The Sun, but she hasn’t been seen wearing an engagement ring. Paul and Phoebe were first linked in May 2020 when the indie musician watched Sally Rooney’s Normal People.She tweeted: ‘Finished Normal People and now I’m sad and horny – oh, wait…’Irish actor Paul responded simply with: ‘I’m officially dead.’The exchange quickly led to a blossoming friendship and the two collaborating on Phoebe’s Savior Complex music video.Phoebe later admitted to NME that she thought Paul was a ‘cute boy’ after watching his hit BBC series, and that her heart did ‘a little pitter-patter’ when he followed her back on

Linda Nolan addresses calls for Damehood as Deborah James honoured for cancer campaigning
cancer charities this week.Linda shared her thoughts on the prospect of a possible Damehood in view of her 22,600 Twitter followers today. The Nolans star was responding to a tweet from Josephine Wilcox, who shared an article announcing Deborah James’ well-deserved Damehood for her valiant campaigning for bowel cancer awareness.Josephine wrote: “How come you and your sister haven’t got one when you’ve been campaigning for cancer yet other people get one? “Dame Linda and Dame Anne?” she suggested.The Irish singer replied: “No idea, but one reason would be as we’re Irish citizens, the Palace has to ask the Irish Government for permission first!”“More like she's heard how much trouble you lot are,” Graham joked in reference to the Queen, sparking laughter from Linda. In 2006, Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent a single mastectomy and was later given the all-clear in 2011. However, doctors discovered a form of incurable secondary breast cancer on her pelvis in 2017 and she underwent further radiotherapy.  Anne received her own devastating cancer diagnosis within days of younger sister Linda getting hers and the pair endured chemotherapy together.Their beloved sister Bernadette (Bernie) also tragically died of breast cancer back in 2013 at the age of 52.This year, Linda and Anne teamed up to release their book about living with cancer, entitled Stronger Together: How We're Living While Fighting.Linda, Anne and Bernie were part of Irish musical group The Nolans, which also consisted of sisters Maureen, Denise and Loose Women’s Coleen. You, Me and the Big C presenter Deborah was honoured with her Damehood after breaking the sad news earlier this week that she was receiving end of life care following a long battle

BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty slammed for 'outrageous slur' in Eurovision chat
BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty has been accused of using a "slur" against Eurovision.On Friday's programme (May 13), she starred alongside co-host Charlie Stayt and both chatted to Eurovision correspondent David Sillito.During the segment, Naga and Charlie both revealed that they don't think UK entrant Sam Ryder will win, but think he will do well.Talking to David via video link, Naga put a rather controversial question to him on air.Naha asked: "That was our speculation about how the voting would go, and I would not say it's a fair process always, would you?"David replied: "I would say it is evidently fair, that's an outrageous slur on poor Eurovision there, it is also entirely unpredictable."He continued: "You do not know what is going to go on and what drama we have had at the semi-finals."Poor Ireland, poor, poor Ireland is out. There was such hope they would get through to the final."You have got to remember Ireland is Eurovision royalty having won, I think, seven times."Serbia and Finland were through and they are truly an example of how bizarre Eurovision can be."The reporter confessed he felt positive about the UK's chances this year, especially in comparison to previous years.David added: "What I mean by UK's year is a top 20 finish at least, that's as far as I am going."However, yesterday I got to meet Sam Ryder, we had some time together, and the only thing you can say is wherever you are in Turin at the moment you keep on hearing his song Spaceman and there is a bit of a buzz about it."Naga was also left fuming during the show as Conservative politician Jacob Rees-Mogg branded the Downing Street party fines a "non-story".

Ireland is the second-largest island of the British Isles, the third-largest in Europe, and the twentieth-largest on Earth. Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. In 2011, the population of Ireland was about 6.6 million, ranking it the second-most populous island in Europe after Great Britain. As of 2016, 4.8 million live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
