A mother from Leicestershire with terminal cancer has begun a campaign to raise money for charity by encouraging people to do something silly.
Lizzy Strong, 36 and from Market Harborough, started the initiative after she was diagnosed last January.
After two operations and seven months of chemotherapy, she was told the disease had spread and her condition was terminal.
But Lizzy says the news made her even more determined to enjoy life.
She teamed up with Sarah Millican to record a video showing the comedian throwing a plate full of cream into Lizzy's face, and then challenging a number of others to continue the "silliness" with videos of their own.
People are asked to do a silly thing and to make a donation to Leicester's Loros hospice.
My outlook on life is about not forgetting to be human and having a laugh.
And if I can raise some money for Loros while I'm doing it then that's fantastic - I just hope other people give it a go too.
