Martin Bester had an interesting challenge for Liesl and Connell - The #InMyFeelingsChallenge. Step aside Mannequin Challenge, there is a new viral challenge in town and Martin Bester seems to love it. Instagram user, "theshiggyshow", started the challenge. It requires a lot more rhythm and many celebrities and social media users have posted about the challenge and we want to get in on the fun.

We think Liesl and Connell absolutely nailed it!


Connell Cruise released his self-titled debut solo album in 2013 and his music career has moved from strength to strength, especially after moving to New York in 2015.
