The Ice Bucket Challenge has been sweeping the world since it went viral on social media.

Taking part involves dumping a bucket of icy water over your head and donating money to the ALS Association, which works to combat amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – known in the UK as motor neurone disease.

Dave Myers was nominated by his Strictly Come Dancing partner Karen Hauer and carried out the challenge dressed in dungarees on a canal boat.

He is donating £100 to the ALS Association, £100 to Macmillan Cancer Support and £100 to a hospital and school being built by his friends in Nepal.

After dunking the freezing water over his head, the affable Barrovian nominated cooking show regular Tom Kerridge and Saturday Kitchen host James Martin, meaning they had one day to complete the challenge.

A shivering Mr Myers, whose video yesterday had almost 5,500 likes on Facebook, said: “They have 24 hours to man up!”
