I would pop them into a bigger pot with as little root disturbance as possible. I would also pinch out the top 4 leaves to encourage side shoots.

I think that if you pinch the tops it stops them from growing upwards, and makes them produce side shoots. So what do you want them to do?

Yes i agree, you should pinch out the tops to encourage more side growth and bushiness, you really can't plant them out till at least a good month and a bit yet so pinching them out will buy them a bit of time until better weather comes to stay!
