Australian singer Kylie Minogue and actors John Barrowman and Josh Hutcherson have accepted the ice bucket challenge in support of the ALS Association.

The group's #IceBucketChallenge helps raise awareness and funds to help in the fight to find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrics Disease), a neurodegenerative disease.

Seated poolside in a lounge chair, Barrowman orders a cocktail from his “boy.” Husband Scott Gill – dressed in nothing more than a red jockstrap – delivers Barrowman's order by dousing the star with a bucket of ice water.

Hutcherson, a strong advocate of gay rights, jumps into a pool to warm up after taking the challenge.

The New York Times reported on Friday that the ice bucket challenge has raised over $41.8 million.

Gay icon Minogue says she was nominated by Ricky Martin and Benedict Cumberbatch and in turn dared Dolce & Gabbana's Stefano Gabbana, who is standing next to her on the deck of a boat. The pair lift buckets of ice cold water and pour them over themselves.
