The friends and peers of Peaches Geldof took to social media in their droves to express their sadness at the tragic loss of the socialite and writer, who was found dead at her home in Kent yesterday afternoon.
Among the first to pay tribute was pop star Lily Allen, a long-time friend of the devoted mother of two sons - Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months - with husband Thomas Cohen.
"My thoughts are with the Geldof's at this awful time," she wrote. "I hope they get to grieve in peace. Peaches, rest in peace gorgeous girl."

Even those who had only met the socialite a handful of times felt compelled to pay their respects.
Music mogul Simon Cowell wrote: "So sad to hear about Peaches. Rest in peace."
"RIP Peaches Geldof," Taylor Swift wrote, posting a link to pictures of the socialite over the years,
Sharon Osbourne, the mother of Peaches' friend Kelly Osbourne, posted: "Devastated about @peaches_g. Sending condolences & respect to the Geldof family. It's unimaginable what they must be going through right now."
Other less likely tributes came from Sir Alan Sugar, Stan Collymore, former England cricket captain Michael Vaughn and Professor Green.
Peaches' father, The Boomtown Rats frontman Sir Bob Geldof, issued an emotional statement on behalf of the family last night,
"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain," it read.
"She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. 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. Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken. Bob, Jeanne, Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Geldof."
Her husband, Thomas Cohen, also paid tribute.
"By beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day.
"We shall love her forever. Thomas, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen."
