  • Sometimes on a Friday you just need to look at a picture of Justin Timberlake hugging a koala bear.

    The 33-year-old singer has been taking time out from his trip to Australia to get up close and personal with the marsupial named April.

    After sell-out concerts Down Under he visited a zoo just outside Brisbane and posted this adorable snap on Instagram.

    Now we know this is a bit random but… this isn’t the first time that a koala has been spotted with a celebrity.

    These friendly little critters seem to get all the luck and are often seen hanging off a celebrity torso.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Kate were also seen cooing over a koala at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo during their royal tour in Australia earlier this year.


    Royal blessing: Even Kate and Wills have got in on the action

    Reality star Kim Kardashian enjoyed some quality koala time when she visited an Australian zoo with her daughter North West earlier this month. The zoo, which is on the sunshine coast, posted a cute snap of Kim K hugging the marsupial via Instagram.

    ACE: These koalas they sure get around!

    In December 2013 tennis god Roger Federer got in on the act with a koala bear at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, and he looks very happy about it.

    Our very own One Direction lads Harry and Louis were also snapped back in 2012 at the same location and oh look, what’s that? Yes… it’s another koala bear.

    That’s what makes you beautiful: Oh nawwww!

    Our all-time favourite snap of a celeb hugging a koala has to be Mariah Carey pictured in January 1998. The singer was seen with this cuddly fellow in Brisbane and she looks dead pleased.
