He said on Peaches death on March 7: “There's not many options. It's intolerable and it's very hard as everybody must realise but what else do you do? You just get on with it.”

Peaches was found dead at her home in Kent after reportedly taking heroin. She was just 25-years-old.

He said: “I've always done that and being on stage is entirely cathartic. It completely clears your head. I just get on a stage and go mad, but if I dwell on the words sometimes, I struggle through the song because they take on meanings which I never meant when I actually wrote them.”

“The default position for me as a person is, 'right things have to be organised' and that distracts me. But like any body else, these things assault you without warning.”

Keeping his head bowed throughout the interview, Bob said: “I've got to be careful because this is still very raw. I'll be walking down the street and suddenly out of the blue there's an awareness of her and I buckle.”
