Now call me cynical, but can we really blame the UK's heatwave on an increased amount of ghost sightings?
Well, paranormal experts seem to be doing just that as one ghost hunter reported a 'major spike' in calls over the past couple of months amid the ongoing summer scorcher, according to the Sun.
Gary Parsons, 53, a professional paranormal investigator said that the ghostly apparitions have been 'summoned' by the scorching sun.
And some have even been afraid to go into their own homes. Oh come on, people.
Gary, who runs Plymouth Paranormal Investigators (PPI) from his Devon home, believes the increase is due to the unseasonably warm weather the UK has been enjoying.
He said: "We have received a major spike in the number of calls during June and July, with people reporting scary supernatural phenomena.
"One couple was almost afraid to go into their own home because of poltergeists, and residual energies making things move."
So a few barbecues, fans on full blast and heating off is driving all the ghosts in? Or maybe it's the open windows.
Robert Bryant, technical paranormal expert, told the newspaper: "With temperatures soaring it's having an unexplained increase in paranormal activities.
"We use a number of items to communicate with energies and especially our Huff Wonder Box. It is designed to search out unexplained orb lights, eerie voices and deadly spirits.
"On a recent house investigation, my body was taken over by a dead priest and refused to leave until it was ordered to leave by my colleague Amanda Oriana." What a bloody stubborn ghost.
Luckily for us in the UK and our haunted houses, the heatwave should have pissed off by Wednesday when it will drop to a 'much fresher' 23C. Wonder if they'll stick around for that?
Forecaster, Dean Hall, told the Daily Star there will be 'quite a marked change to the feel of things' from the middle of the week as conditions turn 'fresher and more changeable'.
He added that there was 'no real sign of any return of the heat that we have been seeing over the recent days'. Yes Dean.
And hopefully no real sign of any returning ghosts.
But what about Portugal and Spain? They're also experiencing a heatwave - I wonder whether they're going through a ghostly apocalypse as well?
Stay safe out there, guys.
