Actors Stephen Fry and Nigel Havers, the Duchess of York, model Sophie Dahl, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and TV presenter Trinny Woodall are some of those involved. The winners will have to meet the celebrities in London within three months to receive their kisses and will be given photographs to mark the occasion.
