The Live Aid campaigner and father-of-four went to see Astrala (2) and Phaedra (11 months) at the family home of his son-in-law Tom Cohen.

The Boomtown Rats frontman arrived at the home in South East London with his partner Jeanne Marine.

The couple were greeted by Tom’s father Keith.

Bob (62) and Jeanne arrived at the home at approximately 1pm and left two hours later.

It is believed Peaches’ toddler sons have been staying at the home under the care of Tom and his parents.

After news of his daughter’s death emerged on Monday evening, Bob issued an emotional statement paying tribute to his 25-year-old daughter.

He also said that Tom and her son sons “will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken”.

“We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child,” Bob said in his moving statement.

“How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is.”

Her husband Tom said: “My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons, I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever.”
