Bella Hadid has arrived in Abu Dhabi for the F1 weekend.

The US super-model and partner of Canadian singer The Weeknd, who performs at du Arena on November 23, posted an aerial Instagram photo of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.

Judging by the low altitude, it appears the image was taken from the window of a helicopter.

There is now way to know whether The Weeknd accompanied her on the joyride, as the singer’s Instagram account was last updated a week ago with the non-Abu Dhabi picture of a snow blizzard.

Another celebrity spotted in Abu Dhabi is Steve Harvey. The US comedian and talk show host has spent the last two days on a Thanks Giving family holiday at the Emirates Palace.

Meanwhile, Sunday's concert act Guns N’Roses were ushered in to the Yas Marina Circuit on Friday morning to visit the Force India garage.

One person who took a particular interest in the experience is the band’s enigmatic front-man Axl Rose.

Guns N’Roses were not the only after race concerts artists making a pit stop at the Yas Marina Circuit. Yesterday saw US singer Post Malone arrive to take a "hot lap experience" that had him strapped in the back of race car as an instructor zipped him around the race-track.

Actress Tiffany Haddish posted a picture of herself at the Four Seasons Abu Dhabi alongside stand-up comedians Dave Chappelle and Chris Tucker.

The 38-year-old Haddish has fast become a Hollywood darling with acclaimed and uproarious roles in last year’s runaway comedy hit Girls Trip and this year’s Night School alongside Kevin Hart.

When it comes to Chappelle, his Abu Dhabi visit is part of his broader UAE stay which included a sell-out show at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Tuesday.

Tucker is also no stranger to the capital. Having moved away from acting in 2012 to focus on his stand-up comedy career, Tucker performed two shows at the du Forum in 2013.
