So its no surprise estranged husband Chris Martin and her fashion designer pal Stella McCartney, joined forces to complete the charity stunt, which involves being drenched in ice cold water. The Coldplay frontman could be seen holding a large black umbrella above his head as he said: "We’ve been nominated to do the ice bucket challenge." Not looking too impressed with the task at hand, Stella jokingly replied: "I’m a fashion designer. I am not going to get wet." In a last minute change of plan Chris, 37, then began to lower his umbrella as he responded: "Okay then, we just won’t do it." The pair were instantly soaked with freezing cold water, which was poured on them by a mystery culprit on the balcony above. After getting wet for the good cause, Chris ran up to the camera and said: We’d like to nominate Bono, Sir Paul McCartney… and who was the other one?" Stella then revealed she would like to nominate actress Angelina Jolie
As a part of the challenge, the mother-of-six will have a 24-hour deadline to take part. After sharing the hilarious video, which appears below, on her Instagram page, she wrote alongside it: "My ice bucket challenge with Chris Martin to support ALS thanks to Gwyneth!" She added: "I'd like to challenge and encourage the ALS association to switch all future experiment testing to strictly non animal testing please! @gwynethpaltrow @paulmccartney#chrismartin #angelinajolie #bono #icebucketchallenge #ALS #PETA." Since going viral, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised more than £3 million and is set to make even more as people around the world continue to get in on the action.
