It is believed that Bob (63) and Jeanne (49) will say their vows at a low key ceremony in the St Mary Magdalene & St Lawrence Church in Faversham, Kent.

Bob and actress Jeanne have been dating since 1996, a year after he split from tragic tv presenter Paula Yates. Bob and Paula had married in the church in 1989, after initially getting hitched in Las Vegas earlier that year.

Mum-of-four Paula later died from a heroin overdose in 2000, and was laid to rest in the chapel’s burial grounds.

Bob and Jeanne’s nuptials will come weeks after the Geldof family marks the one-year anniversary of his daughter Peaches’ death. The 25-year-old journalist was found dead from a heroin overdose at her home on April 7th 2014.

In 2012, the journalist and former wild child married singer Thomas Cohen in St Mary Magdalene & St Lawrence church.
