Police say they were called to an address near Wrotham, Kent following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman on this afternoon. The woman, aged 25, was later pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.

“At this stage, the death is being treated as unexplained and sudden,” said a statement from Kent Police, while multiple news agencies are reporting that the woman in question is daughter of legendary Irish musician Bob Geldof.


Born in 1989, Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof embarked on a media career at the age of 15, when she began writing a column for Elle magazine. She left home at 16 and went on to contribute to the Telegraph and the Guardian, and presented TV shows including ITV2’s OMG! with Peaches Geldof.


She also worked as a model and, just last week, attended a launch for Tesco’s F&F clothing range in London. She was married to musician Thomas Cohen, with whom she had two sons, Astala, one, and Phaedra, who will turn one on 24 April. She lost her mother Paula Yates when she was just 11 years old to a drug overdose. Our thoughts are with her family at this tragic time.
