As the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge floods social media with hordes of shivering fundraisers donating to Motor Neurone Disease charities, the West End’s finest have got in on the chilly act.
From entire casts to single performers, the lure of combining money-raising with water so cold it would make a penguin think twice about taking a dip has been too much for our stars to ignore.
To save you trawling through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else a video might lurk, we’ve brought together a few of our favourite dousings. If they move you to donate a little cash toward the vital research into this disease, you can do so via the Motor Neurone Disease Association’s Just Giving page or by texting ICED55 £5 (or any other amount) to 70070 (UK only).
