Destiny's Child are back together for the mannequin challenge - see some of our other frozen celebrity favourites

We love it when celebrities jump on the bandwagon of a social media craze, but the mannequin challenge has just offered up the best video yet – Destiny’s Child have reunited for their take on it.

It’s rare to see the former bandmates in the same shot now, but when Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams got together to pull off the stunt, it was like they’d never been apart.

The trio got back together to have some fun with the mannequin challenge, which sees groups of people stand as still as possible pretending to be statues in a scene while music plays over the top.

Most of the videos have the soundtrack Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd, but the ladies went for Lauryn Hill’s Every Ghetto, Every City for their video.

Adele also mixed up the usual challenge format by going for a Western theme in a saloon bar set, where she can be seen wearing a cowboy hat.

Ellen DeGeneres is never one to miss out on a social media trend and her challenge incredibly shows her in the middle of a table tennis shot backstage at her show.

Another of our favourites is James Corden’s – it goes on forever, taking in all of the behind the scenes action at The Late Late Show before travelling into the studio where even the audience are part of it, stopping on James giving a cheeky wink to the camera.

Diplo has had a go at the mannequin challenge too, pulling off the feat of getting what looks like an entire club to freeze in place before they erupt into dancing.

But one of the most impressive has to be Kevin Hart’s – it was filmed at the gym with his workout buddies and they are frozen in place mid-exercise with one person even holding a barbell perfectly still above his head.

This is one video challenge we just can’t get enough of.
