Corrie Stars step up to the Ice Bucket Challenge


If you've been around the internet over the past couple of days, you can't have missed the Ice Bucket Challenge, raising money for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gherig's Disease). You get a bucket of ice water poured over you for a donation and you challenge others to do the same.

Stars of Coronation Street got wet for this good cause and posted their challenges on YouTube. Simon Gregson and Kym Marsh switched it up a bit and went dressed as each other! There's a list of Twitter feeds on the ITV site with links there to the various YouTube and Instagram videos. Actors that have taken part to date are Simon Gregson, Antony Cotton, Kym Marsh, Sam Aston, Andy Whyment, Alan Halsall, Brooke Vincent and Jack P. Shephard. Others have been challenged, so the list on that page may grow.

Check it out.

Why are so many of the men pudgy and overweight? They need to trim down a bit.

I happen to love Alan's six pack!

Look around. The entire population has collectively gained weight. We eat more of the wrong foods and we get less exercise than previous generations.
These actors only reflect the culture.

Too much boozing in the Rovers lunchtime and evening, fry ups in Roys and slap up meals in the Bistro. Then off to the chippy for a snack and the famous daily cake run not including numourous cuppas with biscuits. Surprises they all arent 30 stone.

They could've picked a more flattering pic of Jack but never mind - good for them!
