First up! #TheDarcyLook

Are you a man who could give Colin Firth a run for his money? Take part in #TheDarcyLook and find out!

All you need to do is don a white shirt and be prepared to get wet! Have a friend video you being doused with water (we recommend a bucket or a hose for maximum effect!), upload your video / photo to Instagram or Facebook, text donate a small donation (£3) and nominate 3 friends to do the same. Here are the instructions to include in your post so your nominated friends know what to do:
