A spokesman for North West Kent coroner Roger Hatch released a statement reading: ‘We can confirm that the body has been released to the family for funeral arrangements to be made.’

It has been reported that the family will say their last goodbyes to the 25-year-old star at the same church where she wed husband Tom Cohen, and where the funeral of her late mother, Paula Yates, took place.

Paula passed away after accidentally overdosing on heroin in 2000, when Peaches was just 11 years old.

Peaches was found dead at her home in Kent after police were called to he property following ‘concerns over the welfare of a woman.’

Bob Geldof later released a statement, saying that the family were ‘beyond pain’ at the loss of Peaches.

Peaches had reportedly overcome the health problems she suffered in her early twenties, after she admitted in 2011 that her unhealthy diet resulted in her doctor warning she had ‘the heart of a 90-year-old gangster.’

According to reports, doctors at the time recommended the star cut down on junk food, which led to her dramatic weight loss.
