Yesterday we brought you some “Ice Bucket Challenge” highlights from the word of Eurovision. The frosty delights included topless members of Blue, Marco Mengoni squealing and Ruth Lorenzo getting brainfreeze. Must see entertainment! The link is below.
But it turns out we were only skimming the top of a very large iceberg, for over the last 24 hours the trickle of euro-celebs getting chilly for charity has become a flood. Here are some more of the best Eurovision attempts (you’ll be glad to see that none of them have pulled a Conchita, and wimped out).

For those of you who’ve been living in a social media vacuum, the “Ice Bucket Challenge” was started by the American ALS Association in July to raise awareness of the degenerative and incurable ALS or motor neurone disease, the campaign has completely snowballed over the last week, as more and more people get involved. The challenge involves participants recording themselves pour large quantities of water and ice over their heads, posting the clip online, and then nominating others to complete the challenge within 24 hours, while making a charitable donation.
