Shivering naked in snow for Facebook craze

A Wiltshire woman has started a Facebook craze for people to brave the Arctic weather to pose naked in the snow.

Care worker Leanne Myers, 40, stripped to her undies to pose for a picture playing guitar in the snow with 25-year-old neighbour Danielle Smith.

In a bid to cheer up workmates, she posted the picture on a Facebook page she set up and called: 'Wiltshire, let's get naked in the snow!'.

She invited friends to strip off for their own photos in the snow - and hundreds people have already taken up the challenge in just a few days.

Ms Myers, from Durrington, told The Mirror: "It is totally amazing, I really had no idea it would take off like this.

"People have really embraced it, and a lot of the pictures are of friends of friends, but now there's some coming in from people I don't know.

"I've had interest from Abu Dhabi and America and people messaging me saying 'we're not in Wiltshire, can we send in a pic?'

"They are welcome from anywhere, as long as they are kept tasteful."

Nearly 8,000 people have 'liked' the Facebook page and Ms Myers is now hoping to use it as a fund-raiser for local charities.

"It would be great to use this for some good, especially as it's a bit of fun," she said.
