Peaches Geldof: Writer and TV presenter dies aged 25

Peaches Geldof, second daughter of musician Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates, has died aged 25, leaving a husband and two sons.

“We are beyond pain,” said her father, confirming her death. “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us.”

Police, who were called to an address in Kent around lunchtime on Monday, say the death is currently being treated as “unexplained and sudden”.

Geldof was 11 when her own mother died.

TV presenter Yates died of an accidental drug overdose in September 2000. In September 2012 Geldof said she had not been able to come to terms with her mother’s death for several years.

Her final tweet, posted on Sunday, linked to an Instagram picture of her, as a baby, in her mother’s arms. The caption simply read: “Me and my mum.”
