Bob Geldof has told of the "intolerable" pain he continues to feel after the death of his daughter Peaches and said he finds himself sobbing in the street when he becomes overwhelmed by emotion.

He said he will sometimes "buckle" when he thinks of his loss out of the blue.

Peaches (25) was found dead at her home in Kent three months ago as a result of a suspected heroin overdose.

Geldof told presenter Lorraine Kelly it was "still very raw" as he explained: "I'm walking down the road and suddenly out of the blue there's an awareness of her – and you know, I buckle.

"And I've got to be very careful because walking down the Kings Road there are paps (paparazzi) everywhere, so I have to duck off into a lane or something, and blub for a while and then get on with it and that's it, so I'd imagine that will be there for a long time, I mean what else?"
