Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst has rejected the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, but instead opted to respond in a different way.

After being nominated for the challenge by tennis star Novak Djokovic, Wurst said she had to accept the challenge. 

But instead of pouring the ice bucket over her head, Wurst opts to donate double the amount of money, before nominating Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears and Jean-Paul Gaultier.

The challenge, which raises money for the ALS [motor neurone disease] Association, requires people nominated to either donate $100 to charity or pour a bucket of ice-water over their head.

It has swept the world by storm, with many celebrities and gay icons taking part.
