Celebrities including Brian Blessed, Nadiya Hussain, Ellie Simmonds and David Morrissey have shown what they are made of in support of international charity WaterAid’s ‘Made of the Same Stuff’ digital campaign.
Well-known supporters of the charity are taking to social media to share their results from the ‘What are you made of?’ online quiz, which highlights the fact we are all united biologically and physically as we are all made of approximately 60% water, while having many other unique characteristics that make us who we are.
Actor Brian Blessed, best known for his role in Flash Gordon, took the personality test, which revealed he is 14% optimist, 11% machine, 14% adventurer, and of course 60% water. He also admitted that something people don’t know about him is that he loves butterflies and his guilty pleasure is gobbling down yoghurt!
Former Great British Bake Off winner and WaterAid Ambassador Nadiya Hussain has shared her results from the quiz, which found that she is 15% optimist, 12% zen, 13% loyal, and 60% water. She also loves rollerblading; and despite being a whizz in the kitchen, her guilty pleasure is instant mash potato!
Perhaps it’s no surprise that thespian and historian Sir Tony Robinson’s results show he is 16% geek! He is also 11% pedant and 13% thrifty, as well as 60% water. He revealed that something people don’t know about him is that he loves guinea pigs and his guilty pleasure is a finger loaded with peanut butter.
Paralympian swimmer Ellie Simmonds is 17% social butterfly, 14% optimist, 10% joker and 60% water. She also told WaterAid that she likes to bake to take her mind off swimming, and then later tucking into the cakes.
Designer Kelly Hoppen was found to be 12% fierce, 17% pedant and 11% geek, while West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is 17 % social butterfly, 10% joker, and 14% optimist. TV presenter Chris Packham is 16% geek, 13% thrifty, 11% pedant, and actor David Morrissey is 14% adventurer, 14% thrifty, and 13% creative.
Alicia Robinson, digital communications lead at WaterAid, said: “Our ‘What are you made of?’ quiz is a fun way to unite people across the world by highlighting how we are all made of the same stuff – water – while also revealing some of our quirks!”
Money raised from WaterAid’s ‘Made of the Same Stuff’ campaign will go towards helping some of the world’s poorest communities to access to safe, clean water and good sanitation.
