Another day, another challenge. But this time, you don't have to post a fit black and white picture of yourself on Instagram, run 5K and err... post a picture on Instagram, or bake some banana breadin the light of a full moon and post a picture of it on Instagram. Instead, we're invited to take the 2020 Challenge - where one posts 9 pictures of oneself, each representing a different month in the total shit show that has been 2020 each year.

You know the drill the first picture represents January, back when everything was GREAT! Nothing was going to be worse than 2019, we were entering a new decade, full of hope, etc. February was a little sketchy, a little Corona-what? And then by March it was all downhill, straight into a global pandemic and lockdown.

Anyway, it turns out if you're an actor of performer with a raft of highly meme-able pics to choose from, you're going to ace this challenge, as Reese Witherspoon proved when she kicked the whole thing off with a pitch perfect entry, kicking off with January (Legally Blonde, obvs) and taking us all the way through to August and September (Wild). And now, for all of our viewing pleasure, some of her celebrity mates have joined in. From Mindy Kaling to unexpected 2020 Challenge hero Billy Ray Cyrus, here are some of our favourites...
