A host of celebrities including Johnny Depp, Eddie Murphy and Bruce Willis have private islands and homes in the path of destructive Hurricane Irma.

The powerful category 5 hurricane is sweeping through the Caribbean and has already left Richard Branson’s Necker Island home in the British Virgin Islands “uninhabitable”.

Meanwhile Donald Trump’s multi-million pound Chateau des Palmiers, or Castle of the Palms, was in the direct path of Irma as it hit the island of St Martin on Wednesday.

St Martin local official Daniel Gibbs described the storm as an “enormous catastrophe” for the island.

Hollywood stars Johnny Depp and Eddie Murphy both own private islands in the Bahamas, as does illusionist David Copperfield.

Their homes in Little Hall’s Pond Cay, Rooster Cay and Musha Cay are all in danger of being ravaged by wind and rain over the coming days.

The hurricane could also slam into villas owned by actor Bruce Willis and Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards on Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos.

Mick Jagger’s property on Mustique – an island in St Vincent and the Grenadines – Oprah Winfrey’s home on Antigua, and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s pad on St Barts – in Guadeloupe – were also in Irma’s path.

Devastating Hurricane Irma has already wreaked havoc across the Caribbean, flattening buildings and killing at least 10 people.

It is the largest storm ever to form in the Atlantic Ocean, is on a collision course with southern Florida and could hit the US state this weekend.

Winds measuring 185 mph winds blasted the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rica and a chain of Caribbean Islands on Wednesday.
