Gerard Butler and Robin Thicke's homes destroyed by California wildfires

The Scottish star, well-known for his roles in the movies London Has Fallen and 300, has tweeted a photo of the burnt out shell of his Malibu home.

He wrote on Twitter: “Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating.

“Heartbreaking time across California.

“Inspired as ever by the courage, spirit and sacrifice of firefighters.”

Pop star Robin Thicke’s Malibu home has also been burned down in the wildfires that have left 25 people dead in California.

His pregnant partner April Love Geary shared an Instagram story that showed a space where their home once was.

She wrote: “Our house is gone.”

On Friday she posted an image of billowing smoke with the image: “Our house is somewhere in there.

“I’m so sad but so thankful that we all made it out safe.

“Praying for everyone in Malibu, our city is up in flames.”

Thicke has also shared a picture of his son sitting on the beach with the comment: “Contemplating next move.”

Kim Kardashian West, Will Smith and Caitlyn Jenner, have also had to evacuate their properties in Southern California.

The fire broke out in the Hill Canyon area on Thursday and spread quickly, jumping a major road and scorching thousands of acres of land.

Hollywood great Martin Sheen had to flee his home when the flames arrived in Malibu, with his actor son Charlie expressing concern for his welfare.

Sheen, 78, wrote on Twitter: “Emilio, Ramone, Renee, Charlie, we’re fine.

“We’re at Zuma Beach. We’re probably going to sleep in the car tonight. We’re just fine and hope you guys are, too.”

US authorities say more than 8,000 firefighters are battling three large wildfires in California that have destroyed thousands of structures.

The worst of the wildfires is in Butte County in Northern California.

It comes as it emerged a woman who waited to put her make-up on is among those to have died.

Meanwhile, a nurse has revealed how she thought she was going to die when her car was engulfed in flames as she tried to drive to safety.

Many stars have posted messages on social media thanking firefighters and rescue workers.

Singer Rod Stewart tweeted a message aimed at US President Donald Trump.

He wrote: “Mr President, while people’s homes are burning, while lives are being lost & while firefighters are risking their lives, California needs words of support & encouragement, not threats or finger pointing & accusations.

“Where is Winston Churchill when you need him?”

On Saturday, Mr Trump tweeted: “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor.

“Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

He later wrote: “Our hearts are with those fighting the fires, the 52,000 who have evacuated, and the families of the 11 who have died. The destruction is catastrophic. God Bless them all.”
