Country singer and LGBT supporter Dolly Parton is the latest LGBT-friendly celebrity to take part in the ALS ice bucket challenge.

The challenge, which raises money for the ALS (motor neurone disease) Association, requires people nominated to either donate $100 (£60) 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.

After being dared by country singer Kenny Rogers, the superstar posted a video of herself completing the challenge.

Parton said in the video: “Kenny said you’ll never do it with your false hair, your false eyelashes and your false nails.

“Kenny, you’d be surprised at what all I do with my falsies for a good cause and a good laugh.”

In July, Parton said she wanted to record a dance anthem that her gay fans can “relate” to.

In April, Parton voiced her strong support for same-sex marriage in an interview.
