Police have confirmed they were called to an address near Wrotham, England on Monday afternoon following a report of concern for the welfare of a woman.

The mother-of-two was pronounced dead by South East Coast Ambulance Service.

In a family statement on behalf of sisters Fifi Trixibelle and Pixie and younger half-sister Tiger, Sir Bob said: "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."

"We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is."

How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?

Geldof, a television presenter and model, is survived by her husband Thomas Cohen and two sons, Astala, who will turn two later this month, and 11-month-old Phaedra.

"Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken", her father added.

In a separate statement, Cohen said: "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever."

Born in 1989, Geldof was a prolific tweeter and the final message that she sent on Sunday was a picture of her as a child with her mother, the late Paula Yates.

Yates died from a heroin overdose in 2000.

Kent Police said: "At this stage, the death is being treated as an unexplained sudden death. Officers are working to establish the circumstances around the death."
