A spokesperson for the BBC said: "Late next week there are signs that colder weather will make a return to the UK - so you'll probably need to get your big coat back on!

"Widespread frosts will return to the mornings and temperatures in the countryside could drop well below freezing, maybe even as low -10 Celsius for some next weekend.

"If you are hoping for snow, there is a much greater chance that some of you could see some late next week and possibly next weekend.
