Aston Merrygold and Kimberly Wyatt have led a record-breaking dance marathon at London's Wembley Stadium.

The singers joined 5,000 people to break the Guinness World Record for the longest dance marathon relay for charity.

Wyatt of the Pussycat Dolls, and Merrygold of JLS, led the attempt which broke the existing record of 25 hours and two minutes.

Dancing began at 8am on July 19, and ended with a new record at 9.03am this Saturday morning, beating the previous record by a single minute.

The event raised money for Cancer Research UK, The British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK.

Merrygold said: "Being involved in a world record is amazing. But even more amazing is seeing people travel from all over the country and unite on the dancefloor in aid of such important causes.

"We're here today dancing for all those people. Together we can make a real difference and beat cancer, beat heart diseases and fight diabetes."
