Bob Geldof's daughter was remembered at a private memorial service at the church next to the family home in Kent on Monday, attended by mourners including Kate Moss, and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

It has now emerged that the TV star's grieving husband said goodbye by performing a musical tribute.

He sang a version of Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye by Leonard Cohen, accompanied by Holland on the piano.

Queen star Taylor also performed a song during the funeral, Geldof's sisters Fifi Trixibelle, Pixie and Tiger Lily read poems, and Bob Geldof gave the eulogy.

The 25-year-old mother-of-two was found dead at her home in Kent on 7 April.

The cause of death is still not known.
