On Monday, the former glamour model followed in the footsteps of Susanna Reid, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jeremy Clarkson to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as motor neurone disease (though, unlike ‘TOWIE’ star Dan Osborne, Katie managed to keep her clothes on).
Katie prepares to get soaked
It’s fair to say that Katie threw herself wholeheartedly into the challenge, filling up an entire dustbin with ice water before letting Kieran empty its contents over her. That’s right, everyone. A dustbin. What a class act.
Anyone participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge usually chooses two or three friends to nominate afterwards, which is usually a chance for celebs to clumsily name-drop some of their famous friends.
That’s why we were particularly surprised to hear Katie’s unusual nominations for the challenge, which included David Cameron - who had been previously nominated by comedian Russell Brand - and Prince Harry. Yep, actual Prince Harry.
Meanwhile, one celebrity you won’t see getting into the Ice Bucket spirit any time soon is former ‘Baywatch’ actress Pamela Anderson, who refused to take part in the challenge, claiming the ALS Association's use of animal testing conflicted with her beliefs as an animal rights activist.
