HUNDREDS of people puckered up for an attempt to break the world record for the longest kissing chain—even babies got in on the act. There was no shortage of volunteers as guys and gals turned up at Spitalfields Market for the fund-raiser... or fun’-raiser

HUNDREDS of people puckered up for an attempt to break the world record for the longest kissing chain—even babies got in on the act.

Singer songwriter Lucie Diamond (above, top) started off the chain in London’s East End by kissing five-month-old baby Inara Stewart-Smith, the youngest kisser who was at the charity fundraiser with her mum Casey.

There was no shortage of volunteers as guys and gals turned up at Spitalfields Market for the fund-raiser... or fun’-raiser.

The kissing chain snaked through the market as at least 200 more-than-willing participants puckered up to plant pecks on the cheeks of their neighbours in a wave of kisses.

The chain was part of a Kiss for Bliss’ nationwide campaign to raise £10,000 for sick and premature babies.

Organisers are now waiting to hear whether their attempt has broken the world record for the Guinness Book of Records.

The volunteers weren’t bothered either way—the fun was just taking part!
