Tearaway Geldof to host agony aunt show

Peaches Geldof is to host her own TV chat show, it has emerged.

The 21-year-old wild child, who split from her film director boyfriend Eli Roth earlier this month, will assume the role of agony aunt to troubled teenagers while fronting 'OMG! Totally Peaches' on ITV2 next spring.

Having been divorced at the age of just 19, it could be that she will have plenty of worthwhile advice to impart to guests seeking guidance on a range of personal issues - including relationships, sex and money problems - in front of a live studio audience.

Peaches - who is the daughter of musician Bob Geldof and late TV presenter Paula Yates - said: "I'm so excited to be presenting this show and getting to meet and interact with the audience and guests.

"I can't wait to find out what's really on the minds of young people in Britain today."

However, some of the star's past TV appearances have been known to cause controversy, particularly when she fell asleep while being interviewed by Fearne Cotton when filming celebrity profile show 'Fearne and Peaches' last year.

A source said at the time: "It was a bit embarrassing. But it was just Peaches' wild partying catching up with her."
