A private funeral for Peaches Geldof will be held on Easter Monday at the Kent church where she was married, her family has said.

It is also the same church where the funeral was held for her mother Paula Yates in 2000.

The 25-year-old daughter of musician and campaigner Bob Geldof was found dead at her home on 7 April.

A post-mortem examination proved inconclusive and results of toxicology tests are expected in the coming weeks.

Kent Police said her death was being treated as "non-suspicious but unexplained and sudden".

The TV presenter and writer married musician Thomas Cohen in 2012. The couple had two sons, Astala, 23 months, and 11-month-old Phaedra.

Her mother, TV presenter Paula Yates, died in 2000 from a heroin overdose when Peaches was 11.

She had split from Bob Geldof and went on to have a relationship with INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence, who died in 1997.

After Peaches' death, her father said in a statement: "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. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is."

An inquest in to her death is not expected to be opened by the coroner until after the results of the toxicology tests are known.
