In this exciting live show experience Celeste explains the story behind some of her most famous images, her new relationship with famous people, and the stalkers, fans and comments that get under her skin. And to prove that it hasn't all gone to her head, Celeste also hits us with a healthy dose of humour, as she explains how she has managed her new lifestyle, while all the while looking after four kids in her central coast suburban home. If you follow her on Instagram, you won't want to miss this!
