Couples in Thailand are trying to break the world' record for longest kiss.

The contestants are taking part in the kissing marathon in Pattaya in the hope of breaking the current 32-hour world record.

The love birds were each given a space of one square metre space in which they have to spend over a day together without leaving except going to the toilet.

The couples have to lock lips at all times and if the lips part, they will be disqualified from the competition.

Felix Werth, 32, one of the contestants said: "I just participate for fun and I'm looking forward to kissing for a long time."

Fellow kisser, Rungnapa Rojchananawin, added: "I want to try and see if I can break the record or not. It's an experience which I don't care if I will win or not."

The winner will receive a diamond ring worth £1,000 and a £2,000 cash prize.
