Peaches Geldof has died at the age of 25

The daughter of Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof has died at the age of 25.

The mother-of-two, was found by police at her house in Wrotham, Kent, at 1.35pm today.

Kent Police said the death was 'sudden' and 'unexplained'.

The young mother, who grew up in Chelsea with her parents and sisters, leaves behind two young sons, Astala (23 months) and Phaedra (11 months).

Her mother Paula Yates died of a drugs overdose in 2000. Only yesterday, did she post the picture above of her and her mother, to her Twitter feed.

The 25 year old's husband Tom Cohen has released a statement saying he will bring up their two sons with their mother in their hearts everyday.

Her father, Bob, has said in a statement We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. We loved her and will cherish her forever.

On the 5th of August 2008, Peaches married Max Drummey, an American musician from the band Chester French, at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

The couple announced on the 7th of February 2009 that they had amicably decided to end their marriage. Drummey filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

Geldof married Thomas Cohen, lead singer of the South East London band S.C.U.M on the 8th of September 2012 at the same church in Davington where her parents married 26 years earlier, and also where her mother's funeral was held in 2000.
