If mulling over the recent photo hacking scandal, spare a thought for Stephen Fry who is "mildly miffed" no such naked pictures of himself have been circulated.

The ever articulate, ever droll writer, presenter and actor added a lighter voice to the incident, which saw over 100 celebrities targeted, including Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence, Selena Gomez and Kate Upton.

There have been three waves of the hacking, since the first series of nude photos were released via 4Chan at the beginning of September.

The latest series of images, allegedly of Cara Delevingne, were released this weekend.

But Fry – who has recently launched the third instalment of his memoir, More Fool Me – is jovially bemused that he hasn’t been involved himself.

The FBI and Apple are both conducting investigations into the apparent widespread invasion of personal accounts thought to be connected to the iCloud service.

A spokesperson for Lawrence said: "This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

The anonymous hacker has complained about the money received for the images.

“People wanted s*** for free. Sure, I got $120 with my bitcoin address, but when you consider how much time was put into acquiring this stuff (i'm not the hacker, just a collector), and the money (i paid a lot via bitcoin as well to get certain sets when this stuff was being privately traded Friday/Saturday) I really didn't get close to what I was hoping,” the person wrote on 4Chan.
