CELEBRITIES have vowed to fast for 24-hours to raise money for street kids in India.
Radio 1 presenter Fearne Cotton (pictured above), Samantha Mumba and The Hoosiers are fasting this weekend for World Vision's 24 Hour Famine campaign.
Also going without are Sandi Thom, Andy Scott-Lee and The Bad Robots.
Cotton said: "This year we are asking you to go without something important for just one day so that we can help get kids in Chennai, off the streets and instead give them the opportunity of a better, safer life and future." Indie Trio, The Hoosiers are also taking part and when asked what they'll be giving up for lead singer Irwin Sparkes said: "Give up something we love? Make-up for Martin, KFC for Alfonso and hot pants for Irwin. It's about time we did something for somebody else."
Not only can the band brag about their altruistic actions but they are now also the proud bearers of the NME Awards' Worst Band.
