The 19-year-old, from Motherwell, has revealed they had to reshoot her big smooching scene with Daniel Radcliffe 30 times before they finally got it right. But Katie added: “Daniel is a good kisser. I really enjoyed it.”

Some stars hate every second of their nerve-wracking snogs for the camera, though, as they know how vital they are to a film. From the first screen kiss a century ago, we‘ve had racy, romantic and controversial cinema clinches.

Here LISA ADAM Srates the most memorable screen snogs.

GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)

PRETTY WOMAN (1990)

A KISS took on a new meaning in this modern Cinderella story when prostitute Viv (Julia Roberts) finally allowed millionaire Edward (Richard Gere) to give her a peck on the lips. It was breaking her golden rule because she‘d always felt a kiss was too personal. ****

GHOST (1990)
