The Solar System is in mourning today with the shock news of the untimely death of writer, broadcaster, artiste, model, role model and all-round genius, Peaches Geldof.
Peaches, aged 25, was found dead at her home in Wrotham, Kent. The home she shared with her two beautiful sons and her partner, Thomas Cohen, lead singer of a band called S.C.U.M.
Miss Geldof, daughter of Boomtown Rats superstar Bob, was also the brilliant daughter of the equally gifted Paula Yates. An icon who died of a heroin overdose, aged 41 - shortly after her lover, INXS musician, Michael Hutchence, was found auto erotically asphyxiated in an Australian hotel room.
“The world has tonight lost its moon,” sobbed Vicky Mars, Deputy Editor of Heat Magazine. “Peaches was up there with Sylvia Plath and Percy Bysshe Shelley as one of the foremost voices of her age. Her novels will live on. As will her work as a broadcaster and television presenter of countless award winning documentaries.”
"Peaches was a subtle mix of Marilyn Monroe and Julie Christie," wept Tracy Bloggett, 16 year old Features Editor of International Style Magazine. "Her magnificent beauty will glitter and live as long as our Universe - and even longer than our next edition's 40 page memorial colour supplement.
Among countless other celebrities who mourned her passing was BBC colleague, Gary Lineker. “Peaches was a pioneer and a truly great television presenter,” sobbed the creative force behind 'Match of the Day'.
"If it wasn't for her, none of us would be with you today."
