The Met Office has predicted weather to hit highs of 26C on the Fylde coast between now and Friday and thousands of tourists and residents are expected to be seeking the sun.

Armed with half a dozen medium sized eggs (and a kitchen roll to clear up the mess) The Gazette headed to the Comedy Carpet to find out.

Basking in the sun in front of Blackpool Tower, the temperature was hot but was it hot enough to turn an egg white?

Despite our failure to begin a budget fry up, the weather will be getting hotter as the week goes on.
