Television presenter and writer Richard O'Brien is auctioning off celebrity lipstick kisses to raise money for charity.

South Hampstead's most flamboyant resident Dame Edna has donated, as has Camden Town actor Rhys Ifans and Hampstead-based presenter Melanie Sykes.

The kisses will be auctioned off at the Kiss Art Dinner this month to raise money for the Five Stars Scanner Appeal to buy a £1million MRI scanner for the Manchester Children's Hospital opening next year.

Appeal fundraiser Nicola Smith said: "This is a great chance for people to show their support for our appeal while claiming a kiss from a celebrity.

Tickets to the dinner cost £150 per head - see www.fivestarsappeal.co.uk or call 0161 798 8936.
