At her family's request, Peaches's Instagram account has been removed.

Peaches Geldof loved sharing every aspect of her life as a mum with her 258,000 followers on Twitter and just one day before her tragic death she tweeted two adorable videos playing peek-a-boo with her baby boys, Astala and Phaedra.

In one called 'peel-a-wid' Peaches plays with her son in the bath. As he sits laughing, she hides the camera from her son before moving it back up towards his face.

He can be seen giggling along as he plays with his mum. In another, one of her sons appears to be sitting on a bed as she plays the game again.

At one point, she says: "How can you say no" before adding "are you brushing your teeth".

She also shared some cute photos of her boys, who will be two and one at the end of this month.

Just the day before her body was found by police at her home in Wrotham, Kent, Peaches posted an image of grinning Phaedra clutching a photograph as he sat on a bed strewn with Polaroids and other family snaps.

She said his favourite thing was to look at old photos, describing her son as 'so cute'. Shortly afterwards she uploaded another picture of Phaedra leaning against a pillow with a bowl of potato mash or porridge.

Writing from her son's perspective, she tweeted: "Ugh...eating my dinner in bed is such hard work mama. #sob."

Peaches joined Twitter in 2009, and shared some 13,400 tweets with her followers over the next five years.

A few months before her death, Peaches had expressed concern that her home in Kent might be haunted. She shared a photo of herself and Astala in the bath in December which appeared to show a translucent hand to the side of her neck.

She wrote next to the picture: "And no that isn't my hand - one of mine was round his waist to hold him during the photo, the other holding the camera to take the shot. Also the hand is around my shoulder so totally weird angle if I did it myself. How terrifying!! (sic)'"

Peaches posted the spooky selfie on Instagram and told how she believed the hand belonged to the spirit of a woman who committed suicide nearly 100 years ago after delivering a stillborn baby.

She said: "The house was built in the 1920s by a rich man and his pregnant wife.

"However, his wife had a stillborn baby and was so grief-stricken she went mad. She apparently drowned herself in the bath."

Peaches said she often felt a ghostly presence in the house - but said it was a welcoming one rather than threatening.

She added: "The presence I feel isn't malignant or angry, rather maternal and friendly - the house has a lovely atmosphere.

"Maybe she's just making her presence known because she loves having babies around."

Police investigating the young mum's death said: "The death is being treated as a non-suspicious, but unexplained, sudden death. The local coroner has been informed and a post-mortem is expected to be carried out in the next few days."
