“It is an honor to be the official ambassador of the White Shirt Campaign this year. I’m working hard to encourage women to love their appearance and respect their bodies in their natural shape, ovaries and all, ” Celeste said in a statement.

‘I was incredibly shocked to learn that invasive surgery is currently the only way to detect and accurately diagnose ovarian cancer. Vital research is needed to find a non-invasive alternative to early detection that is readily available to all women.

“I’m wearing this year’s shirt to show my dedication to the countless victims of this insidious disease. I am proud of women across the country who also show their support, ”said Barber.

It comes after the comedian – who first starred in the 2005 medical drama All Saints – said she “ hates being called an influencer. ”

Celeste rose to fame by recreating insane celebrity photos in 2015, including Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Jennifer Lopez.

Since then she has garnered 7.9 million followers, including big names like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Paris Hilton.

Despite the huge fan base, she said, ‘I’m an actor, a comedian and a writer, and I just happen to be a little famous now for doing things that resonate with people who don’t always feel good about themselves. That’s how I view it. ‘

The Sydney-born star noted that she doesn’t take her audience’s trust for granted and has turned down certain jobs that have brought her money and fame.

‘So I really take my time to find out what I’m doing because I don’t want to be known as an influencer. I want to be known for making people laugh and giving a sh ** about what I’m putting down in an already very noisy world, ‘she added.

She told Stellar this week, 'I don't want to be known as an influencer.  I want to be known for making people laugh and giving a sh ** about what I'm putting down in an already very noisy world '
