Sun worshippers couldn't have asked for better bank holiday weather conditions. The temperature reached as high as 28.7C in west London, making it the hottest May bank holiday ever recorded and even hotter than the holiday hotspots of Madrid, Athens and Miami.
The average temperature in May is 16C in the south and 13C in the north, so the sunshine was a welcome surprise for many people lucky enough to enjoy a day off.
While many people eschewed social media over the weekend, using it only to upload boastful Instagram Stories of their BBQs and shots of their sunbathing setups, they've come crawling back. And we're sure as hell glad they have.
Sunburn, combined with day drinking and staying out all night, is not conducive to a restful sleep, as many found out.
Getting back into the swing of work has proved a struggle for many others today.
Hey, only three weeks until the next bank holiday (28th May). Just remember your SPF next time.
