Hollywood A-listers and celebrities are avoiding the popular holiday destination of St Barts after Hurricane Irma battered the Caribbean island earlier this year.
The destination has been a holiday hot-spot for celebrities during the festive period for a number of years, but it appears the rich and famous are venturing further afield too see in the New Year.
The island, which enjoys temperatures of nearly 30 degrees Celsius at this time of year, has welcomed famous faces including Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton in the past.

Other celebrities known to have visited the island include Paul McCartney, George Lucas, Tobey Maguire, Ellen DeGeneres, Prince, Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles, Marc Jacobs, Robin Thicke and Justin Bieber.
But the devastation of the hurricane which swept through the island in September has seen celebrities opt for other holiday locations to see in the New Year.
This year, Hollywood actors Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire swapped the tropical climate of St Barts for the snowy slopes in Aspen, Colorado.
Di Caprio was almost unrecognisable when he donned a black balaclava and huge sunglasses to conceal his face on his skiing trip, as he took to the slopes in the same resort as Tobey Maguire.
And the former Spiderman actor was spotted in Aspen on a skiing trip, although it is not known whether the pair are holidaying together.
Paris Hilton was also spotted on the slopes of Aspen with her boyfriend Chris Zylka earlier this week, as was Bella Hadid, who has previously visited St Barts.

Paris Hilton’s sparring partner Lindsay Lohan also appears to have no plans to revisit the island this year, as the Mean Girls star is on holiday in Thailand.
She posted a picture of her injured leg which she says was bitten by a snake.
Meanwhile pop sensation Rihanna was back in Barbados after her 21-year-old cousin Tavon Kaiseen Alleyn was shot dead on Tuesday.

The Chelsea football club owner had hosted a New Year’s Eve party on the island for a number of years, and back in 2011 is believed to have spent more than £5million on the event which saw the pop band Black Eyed Peas scheduled to perform.
His party last year saw the Killers and Paul McCartney in attendance, and the former Beatles star could well attend again as he has been spotted on the island with his family.
