BOOMTOWN BRAT: Peaches' rebellious behaviour must be of concern to her dad, Bob Geldof

IT WAS the tabloid story that no editor could resist. When a photo of Peaches Geldof purportedly "taking drugs" appeared on the editorial desk, it must have been too tempting to turn down.

The wild-child daughter of saintly Sir Bob and rock-rebel drug-overdose victim Paula Yates pictured snorting coke? It was red-top, sales-shifting dynamite.

The shot apparently showed a friend holding a makeshift drug-snorting device to Peaches' nose - but it looked more like an unfortunate camera angle than anything else. And if she really was taking cocaine, it was a spectacularly awkward way to go about it.
