Stuntman Rocky Taylor, who is the only stuntman to have ever doubled for two Bonds in the same year, is raising awareness of the importance of leaving a legacy by attempting one of his most dangerous stunts, the one that nearly killed him and hit the headlines in the 1980s – live.

For weeks fans on Facebook have been voting for how huge they want the flames to be when Rocky performs the stunt for Remember A Charity at London's Battersea Power Station. 

The screening of the stunt will take place on 2 August at 8.30pm live on Facebook and voting will be closing on 1 August.

Rocky says 'I'm thrilled to be involved in this campaign to raise awareness of charitable legacies. I don’t bounce like I used to, but I hope people will tune in and enjoy these stunts. As a stuntman who’s faced danger throughout my career, I know the importance of writing a Will and making sure the people that matter to me are looked after.

'Like everyone else, my family and friends will always come first, but I think it would be great if more people, like me, choose to leave a little of what's left to their favourite charity – I know it would make a huge difference.'
