Twitter explodes with memes as Brits head out to start the sizzling May Day Bank Holiday weekend

Glorious sun is expected to be welcomed for the three-day weekend, with the sizzling temperatures expected to make it the hottest Bank Holiday in nearly two decades.

Cheeky sun worshipers have bombarded social media with pictures and gifs celebrating the summer scorcher.

Tweeter Emily Taylor posted: "Wishing my followers a wonderful bank holiday weekend! Enjoy the lovely weather we're supposed to get!"

GMB weatherman Alex Beresford posted a gif of himself dancing with the caption: "When you got that Bank Holiday Forecast the people been asking for."

Tattoo artist JD posted: "On the way home from school and the warmish weather has already brought out: the pasty torsos; too-tight/small shorts, and the Bank Holiday drinkers who think the pubs will run out…#Brighton …and we’ve got the next three days of ‘seasiders’ to go!"

He added a gif of a gentlemen with an elaborate topknot carrying several martini's with the caption "C'mon guys! Vodka beach party!"

Others also piled in to share in the collective hilarity as 28C weather bakes Britain.

Bank Holiday Monday in 1999 was 23.6C, while the hottest bank holiday weekend ever was in 1995 when temperatures peaked on the Saturday at 28.6C.

Met Office forecaster Sophie Yeomans said a record-breaking weekend could not be ruled out – much to the delight of sun-seeking Brits.

She said: "It could beat 28.6C for the Monday in which case it would be the hottest ever early Spring bank holiday weekend."

Brits are expected to head outside in force to make the most of the sunshine – causing traffic chaos as they race to the beach.
