As far as I am aware, "on célèbre" is correct, whereas "on célébre" is not. The former has an accent grave on the second "e" whereas the latter has an accent aigu. Maybe you mean the infinitice, which has two accents aigus: célébrer?

.... I hate it when typos strike in large numbers ;) The last sentence should, of course, read:

Maybe you mean the infinitive, which has two accents aigus: célébrer?
