The daughter of rocker SIR Bob Geldof and tragic TV personality Paula Yates has won a job as an intern at the MTV studios in London.

FIFI TRIXIBELLE, 20, will be a crew member on the network's flagship programme TRL but plans to work her way up into becoming a presenter or a producer.

A source at MTV says, "Fifi is looking after audience members and guests who appear on the show. But she is very bright and ambitious and is keen to learn more about TV work, and aims to become a producer or presenter."

Fifi's ambitions are similar to her late mother - who died of a heroin overdose in 2000 - who fronted 1980s music show THE TUBE. Dad Bob is also involved in the television industry via production company PLANET 24.

A family friend says, "Bob is very proud of Fifi and will support whatever she wants to do - even if it is to follow her mother into TV work."
