Even as a young girl, Celeste Barber always had a funny story that would make everyone laugh out loud.
Celeste dreamed of starring in a TV comedy like Friends, but she went on to play a paramedic in a popular medical drama. And when that series flatlined, she used Instagram to take the world by storm, one funny photo at a time.
During the devastating bushfires of 2019-20, Celeste knew she couldn't grab a hose and put out the fires herself. So, she launched a fundraising appeal and raised $50 million dollars for the New South Wales RFS Brigades Donation Fund.
Celeste Barber was way more than an Instagram star, she was a hero. And she had the last laugh.
