Mourners joined family and friends from across the entertainment world to bid a final farewell to Peaches Geldof at the model and television presenter's funeral in Kent.

The daughter of Sir Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was found dead at her home 2 weeks ago.

Sir Bob Geldof is thought to have led tributes to his daughter in front of a host of well-known personalities at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in the village of Davington, near Faversham in Kent.

They included Sarah Ferguson, supermodel Kate Moss, Four Weddings and a Funeral screenwriter Richard Curtis, musician and television personality Jools Holland, former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman and BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter Nick Grimshaw.

Today's service was at the same church where she married musician Tom Cohen, the father of her children, in 2012.

It is also where television presenter Yates married Bob Geldof in 1986 and Yates' funeral was held there after she died from an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41.
