The former Victoria’s Secret model who married a billionaire, flies on private jets and lives behind high walls in gated compounds shared a post on Instagram to her 12 million followers promoting a ‘virus protection’ guide from ‘medical medium’ Anthony William.

For those not in the know, William started the “global celery movement” (well, according to him), and despite not having any actual medical qualifications beyond “communication with the gods”, has been telling everyone celery juice will save the world.

But British doctor Joshua Wolrich was having none of it, commenting on Kerr’s post: “ABSOLUTELY NOT. Do better with your influence. This ‘virus protection’ guide is full of unscientific nonsense that has ZERO medical validity … Misinformation is dangerous. Stop spreading it.”

His comments sparked a social media pile-on, and unusually for Kerr, most of the comments were supporting the qualified doctor. Some of Kerr’s followers accused her of being “tone deaf”.

Meanwhile Campbell declares she does not care what anyone thinks of her pre-takeoff ritual of disinfecting her plane seat, table, screen, window, overhead locker, air-conditioning duct, light switch, remote control and anything – and presumably anyone – else she might come into contact with at the pointy end of aircraft. She has helpfully posted a guide on her YouTube channel.

The model admitted her anxiety levels were high when she donned a full hazmat suit, goggles and rubber globes to fly from Los Angeles to New York last week, chiding airport staff for not wearing gloves when dealing with the great unwashed.

Campbell also filmed herself downing sachets of vitamin C and papaya powder before boarding the flight, as well as having “ear seeds” inserted for the trip. Apparently they keep her “balanced”.

Last month Gwyneth Paltrow posted an image on Instagram during a flight to Paris for Fashion Week.

Wearing a black mask covering her mouth and nose, she joked about her role in the rather prescient 2011 film Contagion: “En route to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? Paltrow’s just going to go ahead and sleep with this thing on the plane,” she wrote.

“I’ve already been in this movie. Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash hands.”

It is unclear if Paltrow had any ear seeds inserted for the trip, let alone that “Jade Egg” contraption (Google it if you need to know) she promoted some time back on her website, which caused an uproar despite her claims it improved her “feminine energy”.

On Monday multi-millionaire Arnold Schwarzenegger published a video on YouTube telling his followers of the importance of self-isolating which also starred his pet miniature pony and donkey Whiskey and Lulu eating carrots in his huge, barn-sized Hollywood kitchen.

“No one is allowed out. Especially someone who is 72 years old,” he says, referring to his own age.

Ellen DeGeneres, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift also announced they were going into lockdown, though their version of self-isolating on social media would seem a little bit different to the rest of us, especially given their huge, luxury mansions with fully-stocked pantries and cellars, oh and the housekeepers, personal chefs and pet groomers (though Ellen does have lovely throw cushions).

Celebrity chef Pete Evans, who has been busy flogging his latest book Heal during the pandemic, is no stranger to controversy – hello activated almonds.

Interestingly the reformed party boy has taken a less obtuse approach to the COVID-19 pandemic on his Instagram account. He recently posted a selfie showing him with tubes shoved up his nostrils to ingest ozone, along with a helpful ‘anti-bad vibe’ shield and positive energy pyramid by his side.

I look forward to reading his Jade Egg recipes soon.
