Because let’s be honest, we all love a bit of celebrity goss…

Dubai is quickly becoming the mini-break and stopover favourite for the world’s rich and famous.

With so many A-listers (and B-, C- and D-listers) visiting the glittering emirate every day, we bring you a weekly round up of who was spotted where.

You know, just in case you were wondering who to keep an eye out for when you’re down at Dubai Mall

Zac Efron

The High School Musical star was in Dubai last weekend promoting his Hugo Man fragrance, but found the time to nip out to the desert, enjoying some dune bashing and a camel ride. For reasons unknown, the actor opted to forgo his shirt, but did earn sun-smart points by covering his head in an authentic red-and-white keffiyeh.

Here’s one more snap, purely so you can admire the majestic beast that is the Arabian oryx (it’s just a shame Zac Efron is getting in the way). The Arabian oryx is actually the smallest member of the oryx genus, and its white coat is able to reflect the sun’s rays, allowing it to survive in the harsh desert environment.

Demet Akalin

The Turkish pop star and former model appears to be enjoying a luxurious vacation in Dubai with her family, staying at Atlantis The Palm and shopping up a storm in the Dubai Mall (we can never resist the sugary clutches of Candylicious, either).

Yummy yummy??????

Helen Flanagan

Who doesn’t love a bit of Coro St? And look who it is, none other than Roooosie Webster, swapping the iconic cobbles of Weatherfield for the bright lights of Dubai. The soap star was staying at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa, and shared this snap with boyfriend Scott Sinclair at a hip nightlife spot.

What an amazing time we had in Dubai thankyou @pamwilby13 ❤xxx

Katie Piper

The inspirational TV presenter and acid attack survivor made the most of Dubai’s sun and sand while holidaying with family, posting plenty of beach snaps, and enjoying brunch at Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen.

Vicky Pattison

Another week, another former Geordie Shore star gracing our, err, shores. The I’m A Celebrity Extra Camp host was in town with boyfriend John Noble, who posted a pic of the pair enjoying a desert safari (clearly Vicky has been taking style tips from Zac Efron).

Culture vultures are at it again. Camel riding ??? @vickypattison
