In case you haven’t noticed, it’s hot… Really hot.
If you’re unaware, the UK is currently going through the heatwave to end all heatwaves and it’s left us in a state of major discomfort. The sweat, the humidity, the agonising sunburn… It’s all so unbearable. And we know, we might seem like we’re over-exaggerating, especially to those of you living outside the UK, but when you’re used to cold, rainy days, any length of time where the temperature is over 30°C leaves you feeling as if you’ve got heatstroke.
Just like us, many of our fave creators have been reacting to the heat, and let’s just say some are handling it a lot better than others…
We’re melting… literally

Is there a better analogy for the weather right now than a chocolate bunny being melted by a hairdryer? We think Cherry Wallis hit the nail on the head with this one.
Things are literally too hot to touch
cant. pick. up. camera. too. hot. the. gorrillapod. is. lavA.

The floor is lava? More like our filming gear is lava, amiright Alexander Brooks?!
What’s a Brit without their tea?
Why did i think drinking hot tea on a summers day like today was a good idea will never make sense to me… I'm On Fire
— Roly (@RolyUnGashaa) June 19, 2017
Roly West has highlighted an important issue to arise from this month’s heatwave: the fact that it’s too hot for tea. When it’s too hot for us to drink a nice cup of hot tea, you know we’ve got a problem.
Iced tea? We’d never stoop so low
Iced tea is for losers.
There. I said it.
— Hazel Hayes (@TheHazelHayes) June 19, 2017
How dare people suggest we Brits lower ourselves to drinking iced tea. Tea is meant to be drunk HOT, not cold. Like Hazel Hayes said, iced tea is for losers and we dare you to find someone who thinks differently.
It’s. Too. Hot. To. Sleep.
Door wide open, no sheets, butt naked and it is still too hot to sleep 🔥👀 pic.twitter.com/HV2WPeJT2z

When it’s too hot for a man like Doug Armstrong to sleep comfortably in his bed whilst naked, you know the weather has gone too far.
The warm weather has its advantages
You know it's too hot for Brits to function when you walk through Luton and you don't garner a single catcall. #summeryouaredoingmeGOOD
— Ant 🌻 (@antw0rld) June 19, 2017
Whilst we may be cursing this godforsaken heat, we have to admit, it has its advantages. You have to love when it’s too hot for even the creeps on the street to be catcalling us, just as Antoinette Belle has pointed out.
AC has died.

— Daniel Hardcastle (@DanNerdCubed) June 19, 2017
Daniel Hardcastle, we’d love to feel bad for you, we really would, but considering the vast majority of us don’t even own an aircon unit, we’re currently finding it very hard to.
We’ve got a wise guy over here…
No wonder it's hot here 👀 pic.twitter.com/s5Ffm614P1

Step aside, AJ Brinnand. We don’t have the time (or energy) for your wisecracks.
Think of the kittens!
Too hot 4 kitty today ☀️ 🐱 pic.twitter.com/3Opr8jAVVZ
— Jamie ❌ (@RageNineteen) June 18, 2017
You know what, weather? Making us suffer in this heat is one thing. Forcing Jamie Spicer-Lewis‘s pet to spend the day taking a cat nap? Well, now you’ve gone too far.
Sleep is for the weak
The awful moment when you finally admit to yourself that it's too hot to snuggle in your duvet
— gab (@velvetgh0st) June 17, 2017
No, Gabriella Lindley, we need to hide under the duvet! What if the monsters under the bed come to get us?!
Aircon? What’s that?
It is 32 degrees right now I can't function why doesn't this country have aircon 😩
— Evan Edinger (@EvanEdinger) June 19, 2017
‘MERICA, HOME OF AIR CONDITIONING.
Hot potato, pass it on
How's the weather? Well… I'm having to play hot potato with the steering wheel on the drive home!
— Myles Dyer (@MylesDyer) June 18, 2017
Umm, Myles Dyer, we don’t think you’re practising safe driving habits here…
It's so hot in the recording room I melted… 😫☀️ pic.twitter.com/zYhvOrW5Pf
— Ali-A (@OMGitsAliA) June 18, 2017
RIP Ali-A. Not even he could avoid the blazing sun.
How do we life?
So… it's now literally too hot for me to use my laptop.
Guess I'll sleep then?
What did the Victorians do? Did they just die?
— Chloe Dungate (@ScarfDemon) June 17, 2017
Seriously, Chloe Dungate, how on earth did those living in the Victorian ages survive? We’re bored out of our minds over here!
It's so hot in London.
Like, LA hot, but zero breeze.
I'm gonna go look for a breeze.
— Ellen Rose (@icklenellierose) June 18, 2017
Ellen Rose, please let us know once you’ve found that breeze. We could really use it right about now.
Who’s up for heading down the street for an ice cream cone?
We could really go for the cooling power of ice cream right about now. However, we don’t know about the Flake. We think it’ll look more like chocolate fondue than the the delicious chocolatey treat we know and love.
