Mr Salmond said: "I'm always up for any challenge, and I'm game for this one. "It will invigorate me for the next month of campaigning - but the Scottish media should be careful what they wish for, as I get to nominate who's next for the ice bucket!" The social media craze is aimed at raising awareness and money for the neurodegenerative disease ALS, or motor neurone disease. Mr Darling thanked McAvoy and tweeted a link to www.gordonsfightback.com, an awareness-raising site set up by Better Together director of research Gordon Aikman. Darling getting soaked Mr Aikman publicly revealed he is dying of the disease in a powerful article in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper in June. In his video, X-Men star McAvoy said: "As it is the year of the Scottish referendum on independence, I'd like to nominate our political champions Alistair Darling and Alex Salmond to do their very worst." As a bucket of icy water is poured over his head, he adds: "Alex, Alistair, you've got 24 hours." McAvoy said he was nominated for the challenge by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

In an interview with The Scotsman in May, he said: "I will go with whatever way my country votes, but I don't know which way I want to go yet." Mr Darling nominated the staff of Better Together to take up the dare next. He said: "One of the good things about being the boss is you can nominate your staff for anything you want and tell them what to do - so I nominate the staff of Better Together.”
