The Aussie comedian, 39, filmed a video mimicking a photo shoot that Portuguese model Anastasia Young had posted on Instagram.

In Anastasia’s clip, she frolicks on a beach while holding a coconut, which prompted Celeste to film a hilarious parody.

Celeste posted a video to her 8.2 million followers of herself dancing dorkily while holding a roll of toilet paper.

She captioned the post: “We all have that one mate who gets weird around props”.

But Anastasia wasn’t impressed that Celeste, who often parodies celebrities’ glamorous posts, made fun of her and hadn’t linked back to her original clip.

“I believe [it] would be fair if you ask us before using this video (for the second time already),” Anastasia commented on the viral video. 

“Or at least to give a proper credit in the description. Please be a bit mindful about it and contact me ASAP. Thank you.”

However, Celeste hit back at Anastasia with a typically sarcastic response.
