Here are some of the best celebrity ice bucket challenges so far

A round-up of our favourites.

LAST WEEK, WE told you about the ice bucket challenge, the internet phenomenon that has taken over the US and raised millions for motor neurone disease.

Now it seems like every celebrity on the planet has jumped on board to participate in the challenge, which is not only in aid of a worthy cause, but also a great excuse to name drop.

Everyone from Bill Gates to Robert Downey Jr. has taken part so far, but here are some more that are rather enjoyable.
