Why can’t I have Bella Hadid’s BMI (if not her IQ)?
Do you ever stare at the selfies that celebs post online and wail: Why can I not walk in stilettos across cobbles like Cara Delevingne, instead of staggering around like Dick Emery?

How on earth does Victoria Beckham extend her right leg at a 90-degree angle to her body and keep a straight face?’

Dear readers, please take heart. These people might do selfies, but they sure as hell don’t do self-aware, and luckily, as a sort of 21st Century answer to Spitting Image, a very funny saviour has now burst on to the internet to prick the balloon (and squash the pink flamingos) of their over-plump faces by posing in a selection of parodies that expose the yacht-frequenting, non-carb-eating A-list for the humourless narcissists they really are.
Celeste Barber, a 35-year-old comedienne and mother-of-four, first had the idea of becoming her own downward-dogging doppelganger two years ago, when she posed as Kim Kardashian et al, then sent the photos to her sister, who persuaded her to share them with a wider audience on Instagram.
Her following quickly mushroomed to 2.5 million fans, who are now more able to be at home with their own muffin tops as Barber apes a constantly evolving roster of preening posers, including her favourite targets the Kardashians, and a wide range of stick- thin supermodels.

Barber’s fame has landed her a TV series in her native Australia but, more importantly, she has become a feminist icon, though this is something she never set out to do.
She says: ‘It was always, like, this is how celebrities get out of the pool and I’m like, “No, this is how you get out of the pool…”
‘I get miffed with fashionistas thinking they are better than other people.’ Amen to that.
