Corrie Stars step up to the Ice Bucket Challenge
If you've been around the internet over the past couple of days, you can't have missed the Ice Bucket Challenge, raising money for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gherig's Disease). You get a bucket of ice water poured over you for a donation and you challenge others to do the same.
Stars of Coronation Street got wet for this good cause and posted their challenges on YouTube. Simon Gregson and Kym Marsh switched it up a bit and went dressed as each other! There's a list of Twitter feeds on the ITV site with links there to the various YouTube and Instagram videos. Actors that have taken part to date are Simon Gregson, Antony Cotton, Kym Marsh, Sam Aston, Andy Whyment, Alan Halsall, Brooke Vincent and Jack P. Shephard. Others have been challenged, so the list on that page may grow.
Check it out.
