This Morning - Peaches GeldofPeaches Geldof has died at the age of 25.

Kent police say that they are treating the death of the socialite and presenter as “unexplained and sudden”.

Geldof was pronounced dead by the South East Coast Ambulance Service after police responded to a call concerning the welfare of a young woman at an address in Wrotham.

The media personality was the second daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates and leaves behind two sons, Astala Dylan Willow and Phaedra Bloom Forever.

A statement released by the Geldof family reads:

“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.

 

“Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?

 

“We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.

 

“Tom [Peaches’ husband] and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken.” – Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof.

Geldof launched a media career at the age of 15 and has contributed to publications including Elle, Telegraph and The Guardian. In 2011 she fronted her own ITV2 chatshow OMG! with Peaches Geldof.

She has also worked as a model making her catwalk debut in September 2007 for PPQ at London Fashion Week. It was likely that Peaches would head into the world of showbiz being the daughter of Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof and television presenter, the late, Paula Yates who is best remembered for her hosting duties on Channel 4’s The Tube music show and interview slot In Bed With Paula Yates on The Big Breakfast.

Paula died on the 17th of September 2000 from an accidental heroin overdose aged 41. The tragedy happened on daughter Pixie’s 10th birthday.
