The ice bucket challenge is the latest craze to sweep social media.

It involves people pouring a freezing cold bucket of water over their heads to raise money for charity before nominating other people to get involved.

The internet craze of summer 2014 features  A-list celebrities and business leaders drenching themselves in buckets of ice and water, all to raise awareness of motor neurone disease (also known as AIS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease).  After each star has filmed themselves enduring several seconds of icy pain, they then nominate up to three more well-known figures to undergo the same public humiliation.

It went viral after Pete Frates, a former Boston College baseball player tipped to become a Red Sox star who had his career cut short by the disease, nominated fellow Boston athletes to take part. This then spread to celebrities including Mark Zuckerberg, Justin Timberlake and even Bill Gates.

Now the phenomenon has landed in the UK with people across the country gearing up to the challenge for different charities.
