Being British, we’re used to getting cold and wet, but now we are being expected to do it for charity.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a thing of ridiculousness that could only have been dreamed up in America.

The craze started as a fundraiserfor the ALS charity, but has spread to such a degree that people are now doing it to support other charities as well.

That is fine by me, they are all very good causes.

But what gets me is all these celebrities queueing up to do it to fuel their over-inflated egos and self-importance.

“Ooh look at me, aren’t I great? And by the way, my new album’s out next week.”

I’d have much more respect for some of these ‘celebs’ if they withdrew a couple of million from their off-shore bank accounts and lavished it on these charities.

This is why I reckon celebrities should be forbidden from doing such stunts.

They should show some restraint and let ordinary folk take some of the limelight for a change.

This is exactly the reason why I have vowed not to take the Ice Bucket Challenge.

I’m the nearest thing Worksop has got to a celebrity, so it would be incredibly hypocritical of me to do it.

It is not that I afraid of being doused in freezing cold water. In fact, I’m used to it.

Every time I make drunken, sweaty,clumsy, amorous advances towards Lady Grundi she makes me go and take an ice cold shower.

However, my lofty position within the Worksop hierarchy does I believe entitle me to nominate others for the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Therefore I nominate EVERYONE in Worksop to take up the challenge.

I’ll even charter one of those big planes that fights forest fires in California to ensure you all get a good dousing, what do you reckon?

For a lot of people in Worksop, it would be the closest thing they’ve ever had to a wash.
