Her father Bob Geldof gave his own emotional statement after the news broke, saying: 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 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."

Peaches was just 11 when she lost her mother Paula Yates to a heroin overdose. Kent police have said they are not treating her death as suspicious.
