basically. If they win, how'd you think you are going to feel? I don't

:06:27.:06:31.

know if words can describe that. It's going to be absolutely

:06:32.:06:37.

unbelievable. There will be a lot of singing on the plane going back.

:06:38.:06:44.

Despite being down under, they have remained keen fans since emigrating

a decade ago and their pilgrimage is a family affair. Brother Steve is

final, a great day out with the family. You are using this as a big

:06:59.:07:06.

family reunion? Football is bringing us together. It'll be good because

:07:07.:07:11.

my mum and dad are going as well. A big family outing. As foreign fans

go through passport control to Wembley Way, some are making bigger

sacrifices than others. It is our wedding anniversary as well on

Monday. On the day of the cup final. I've pretty much got away with this

one. I don't know how I did but I did. So wherever they are from, they

:07:32.:07:34.

are all part of the Royals family. Now time for a look

:07:35.:07:39.

at the weather with David Braine. Good afternoon. A lovely start of

:07:40.:07:52.

the day and the rest of the day is even hotter than yesterday. Many of

:07:53.:07:56.

our weather watchers have taken some great shots of what has been a

:07:57.:08:02.

fantastic summer 's day. We will continue to see that for the rest of

:08:03.:08:07.

the afternoon. Strong sunshine, UV levels at their highest. Up at

:08:08.:08:16.

eight. That is very much as high as they get. So enjoy but be careful in

:08:17.:08:23.

the sun. Overnight, a bit more cloud creeping in in the small hours. That

:08:24.:08:28.

is capable of producing a view showers, one of which could become

:08:29.:08:37.

heavy and thundery. The risk, first thing tomorrow of a heavy shower

:08:38.:08:44.

with thunder. If showers are torrential they could cause problems

:08:45.:08:47.

on the road. Stay tuned to local radio. The showers will creep away

:08:48.:08:55.

from others as the day goes on. They will probably disappear by

:08:56.:09:01.

lunchtime. We are left with sunny spells, another one day. A fair

:09:02.:09:06.

amount of mist and fog and 25 will be the top temperature. It gets

:09:07.:09:09.

cooler in the second half of the weekend and an increasing risk of

:09:10.:09:16.

some thundery showers. Typical for a bank holiday.

:09:17.:09:19.
