Aldi has announced that sales of ice cream have jumped 45% in a week and could increase as much as 100% by the weekend, thanks to the current heatwave.
According to the Met Office, temperatures are likely to exceed the hottest day of the year so far, with a new record expected this Thursday.
And supermarket Aldi predicts shoppers will be busy bagging BBQ essentials and tipples to celebrate.
