Fans at Glastonbury Festival are being encouraged to help break the world record for the biggest en masse kiss.

The world record breaking attempt will be 'kiss-started' from the Lost Vagueness Stage by Madness of all people.

Singer Suggs will stop the band's early Sunday morning set at around 1.30am and instruct fans to start snogging those around them.

Organisers of The Big Kiss are hoping that up to 30,000 kissers will take part and beat the current record of 6,400 couples, which was set in Hungary.

Lost Vagueness founder Roy Gurvitz said: "Lost Vagueness is one of the only parts of Glastonbury open 24 hours. It is so perfect for Midsummer's morning to share a little bit of happiness and love with the person next to you, all the while setting a record that will be recognised in the future. It's going to be an amazing sight."

Glastonbury Festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from 22-24 June.
