Peaches Geldof has become the latest of Paula Yates’s daughters to follow their late mother on to the small screen.

Bob Geldof’s 15-year-old has signed up to write and present a documentary on teenage life.

Peaches’ younger sister Pixie, 14, has already made her TV debut, interviewing Tara Palmer-Tompkinson in a one off live programme, It’s a Girl Thing, for satellite TV.

Their older sister Fifi Trixibelle, 21, works as an intern on the music channel MTV.

Peaches Honeyblossom, who has been appearing at red carpet events with Pixie in recent months, will be writing and presenting Peaches Geldof – Inside the Mind of a Teenager.

Her outspoken newspaper and magazine columns have attracted controversy, hitting the headlines last year with an attack on style gurus Trinny and Susannah who, she said, looked like “Butlins stage performers“.

The Sky One documentary is being made by the independent TV company Ten Alps, which was co-founded by Bob Geldof.

The show will look at the struggles of being a teenager and will be broadcast in March, to coincide with Peaches' 16th birthday.

Yates, whose TV career included music show The Tube and The Big Breakfast, died at the age of 41 after overdosing on heroin.
