weather forecasters predicted parts of the country could hit 41C.The highest-ever temperature the UK has ever recorded is 38.7C, which occurred on July 25, 2019 in Cambridge, but this sizzling figure could be beaten several times over the next couple of weeks if meteorologists’ charts are accurate.It promises to be a week of pleasant sunshine this week, but another heatwave is beckoning the week after, with Bristol speculated to reach the 40C mark on July 14, at 6pm, while London could even reach 41C a couple of days later.READ MORE: Brits cigarettes could be 'laced with poo' after black market spike sees cheap fakes sold The Weather Outlook’s forecast model also predicts balmy temperatures of 39C and 38C in Oxford and Southampton respectively, in what experts are claiming is an “astonishing forecast”.

Mind-blowing holidays of the future – from underwater hotels to a weekend on the Moon
Holidaymakers are returning to ports and airports as travel restrictions are eased, and the travel business slowly returns to its old routes.But tourists won’t always be satisfied with the same old destinations - where will the holidays of the future take us?There are already hotels under the sea, there’s talk of nuclear-powered hotels that will cruise the skies 24/7 and maybe even one day a hotel on the Moon.READ MORE: Giant nuclear-powered 'flying hotel' with gym and swimming pool to carry 5,000 passengersMark Smith, head of business development at Simplexity Travel, said: “As the world shrinks and long-haul travel experiences become the norm, holidaymakers are going to want more unusual experiences, with extreme tourism set to grow”.There’s nothing more extreme than holidays in space, and the first space tourists have already undertaken brief orbital flights - and soon we could go further.“Whether one day we will build a hotel off the moon, which is something that I’ve always dreamed of, or whether we’ll leave that to my children to do, we’ll have to see,” says Richard Branson.The dream of a Moon hotel predates the first Moon landing.In 1969, shortly before Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface, hotel entrepreneur Conrad Hilton said: “I firmly believe that we are going to have hotels in outer space, perhaps even soon enough for me to officiate at the formal opening of the first."Hotelier Robert Bigelow promised in 2017 that the would have an inflatable Moon hotel operational by 2022.

Raging bride wants to dump three bridesmaids after they drop out of her hen do
Wedding planning can be extremely stressful for couples. But luckily for the bride and groom, a stag/hen do will be the perfect way to let off some steam.Now one woman has revealed she's frustrated by three of her six bridesmaids after they bailed on her final night of freedom. READ MORE: 'Britain's most hated woman' plans to charge guests £3k to attend £40k wedding And to top it all off, one of them won't even give a reason for her absence.The woman is now considering "demoting" the three bridesmaids back down to regular guests as they won't be there for her. In a Mumsnet post, she said: "I have 6 bridesmaids and have just found out that 3 of them aren't coming to my hen do."One reason is they don't drink (but they are okay in drinking situations), another because of the money (yet they go away 3 to 4 times a year and are a blood relative)."And the other one hasn't given a reason but I've known her for 20 odd years, and she is going away for another wedding abroad the following month."Am I unreasonable for being annoyed? Would you demote bridesmaids for not being there for you or am I overreacting?"Commentators didn't know how to advise the bride, as some said her bridesmaids were being "shabby" by dropping out.One said: "If they've been up for it and booked it and then cancelled that is a bit unfair of them, but it's still within their rights."Another added: "I think this is very shabby of them.

Horny seagulls will become crazed ‘acid heads’ - causing summer hell for Brits
seagulls will make this summer hell.Brits and holidaymakers are being warned they will be terrorised by swarms of the monster birds – high as kites after gorging on billions of flying ants.Experts say the pests could lose all inhibitions and become ‘acid heads’ as the insects contain formic acid that makes them act out of their minds.READ MORE: Extremely rare two-headed snake stuns serpent wrangler in strange discoveryA spokesman for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds warned about the looming ant plague: “Seagulls are mad for them – they are like M&Ms to them.“The gulls go wherever they are.”A spokeswoman from the Society of Biology added the ants’ formic acid can cause gulls to “appear drunk or stoned” and make them even bolder.As well as making the gulls hungry and horny, ingesting the insects is also said to make gulls increase dive-bombing attacks and refuse to fly away from the humans they leave in a flap.The phenomenon of flying ant swarms up to 50 miles wide invading the UK in hot weather has been dubbed ‘Flying Ant Day’.Their swarms have grown so large they are being spotted from space.It usually happens in July or August amid a sustained stretch of hot, still and humid weather.Infestations can be focused on seaside towns where gulls are already despised for dive bombing to snatch food and attack kids, pets and pensioners.READ NEXT: Young mum shot dead in 'execution-style' murder as she pushed pram down busy street Babysitter and cop 'sexually assaulted' 12-year-old girl and took naked photos of her Man breaks his neck after being thrown into back of police van without seatbelts Woman killed driving Uber Eats car may have 'solved her own murder' with final photo Teenage swimmers make sickening
