DIPPING into an ice hole in frozen Russia in winter is certainly nippy.

But when a former porn star, a collection of models, actresses and a ballerina took part in an Epiphany bathing tradition, there was a distinct rise in the temperature.

During the ritual – a religious devotion in the Russian Orthodox Church – followers immerse themselves in freezing water for Epiphany, when Jesus’ birth was revealed to the three kings.

Videos and pictures of the dunkings emerged on social media despite calls from religious leaders for modesty.

One devotee leaped into the water wearing a thin white T-shirt which left little to the imagination when she emerged.

Actress Lyubov Tolkalina went one better and jumped into the water naked.

Famous Russian ballerina, Anastasia Volochkova, wearing a low cut dress, cheated a bit when she said she was in the tropical Maldives.

But former Russian porn star Elena Berkova restored the spartan spirituality when she hurled herself into the icy water in just a skimpy white bikini.

About two million people take part in the ritual across Russia on 19th January, one of the country’s biggest religious festivals.
