Bob Geldof Publically Speaks About Death Of Daughter Peaches Geldof For The First Time

An emotional Bob Geldof spoke publically for the first time about the tragic death of his daughter Peaches Geldof.

The 25 year-old TV personality was found dead in her Kent home on April 7th after police were responding to a report of "concern for the welfare of a woman."

A post mortem examination of Peaches came back as inconclusive, therefore a toxicology report was carried out and this determined Geldof had taken heroin in the days prior to her death.

Bob appeared on ITV's Lorraine on Friday (July 4th) and described the heartache their family is still going through.

"You could be talking to somebody, you could be walking down the road - and I've got to be very careful because this is still very raw - but I'm walking down the road and suddenly out of the blue there's an awareness of her," he said.

Adding, "I buckle and I've got to be very careful because walking down the King's Road there are paps everywhere, so I have to duck off into a lane or something and blub for a while and then get on with it and that's it, so I'd imagine that will be there for a long time."

The Boomtown Rats front man also spoke highly of the positive influence Peaches had on her fans.

"The nice thing about that was that this young girl had made such an impact, especially on her generation," he explained. 

"When the [Boomtown] Rats got back together last year we went out on tour. I was walking around Leeds... and people would come up to me and say, 'You're Peaches Geldof's dad, aren't you?' and I'd say, 'Yes', but I liked it," Bob admitted. "I liked being 'Peaches Geldof's dad'."
