Peaches Geldof Dead: Star Lost Weight After Doctors' Junk Food Warning

A previously unheard interview with Peaches Geldof has been released, revealing that the one-time model was told to stop eating junk food by doctors.

Speaking at the 2011 ‘One Day’ movie premiere, Peaches told The Sun that warnings from health care professionals had pushed her to sort out her eating habits and “stop eating s**t”.

“I had the heart of a 90-year-old gangster,” she told the paper. “I had cholesterol and the doctors said stop eating s***. So I did. If you stop eating pizza and chips you then don’t look like you used to.”

Peaches, who attended the premiere with her future husband Thomas Cohen, went on to question whether or not she was "thin", arguing that her svelte figure was her “natural weight”.

“Do I really look that thin? Let’s be honest. How did I do it? I just stopped eating McDonald’s and f****** s*** every day,” she said. “I used to eat s*** every single day. I used to wake up with my boyfriend and eat crap.

“People are like, ‘Peaches is scary and anorexic’. Not really - I lost five pounds. It’s ridiculous.”

The mother-of-two died on Monday 7 April at her home in Wrotham, Kent.

Her body was released to her family on Thursday 10 April, allowing them to begin making funeral arrangements.

Kent Police have said that they are treating her death as a “non-suspicious, unexplained sudden death” and a post-mortem was “inconclusive”. The results of toxicology reports could take up to 3 weeks to be released.

Bob Geldof has led tributes to his daughter, describing her as “the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of us all” in a touching tribute.

Her husband, musician Thomas Cohen, said his wife was adored by him and their two sons Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra, who he will bring up “with their mother in their hearts every day”.

Peaches’ sister Fifi posted her own tribute online, sharing a childhood snap of herself and her sister on Instagram.

Celebrities including Lily Allen and Kelly Osbourne have also publicly paid tribute to the star by sharing their condolences on Twitter.
