Peaches tells of Paula risky jokes

Peaches Geldof has opened up about life with her mum Paula Yates, saying she used to make jokes that weren't fit for kids to hear.

Paula, who presented music show The Tube, died at the age of 41 in 2000 from an accidental heroin overdose and Peaches took part in a Channel 4 documentary about the programme called Rewind The Tube.

According to The Sun, she said: "The things she would say around us as kids were completely inappropriate, but it was hilarious. I definitely knew a lot more than I should about the ways of the world at the age of eight than a lot of my friends because of my mother's jokes, let's put it that way."

Bob Geldof also took part in the documentary, due to air as part of the channel's 80s night on September 20.

Peaches continued: "Her presenting style is just like how she was, so it feels like having a conversation with her because she was just the same as she was on screen. It wasn't a put-on personality."
