New information has been released on what Peaches Geldof was scheduled to do before her untimely passing on April 7. Tragically, Geldof was supposedly going to be a fill-in host for the late Charlotte Dawson on Australia’s Next Top Model, according to a report from the UK publication, Metro.
Britain’s Sunday Times conducted an interview with Peaches Geldof earlier this year, but the newspaper just recently ran the story. Geldof couldn’t give any details on the project at the time the interview took place, but she seemed pretty confident that she was going to get the position.
Peaches Geldof added that her husband, Thomas Cohen, and their two children, 23-month-old Astala and 11-month-old Phaedra, would join her for the temporary position in Australia.
“Of course [my children] will come with me because, obviously, I wouldn’t leave them for that long,” she said.
But The Sydney Morning Herald confirmed that Geldof was amongst a list of possible candidates to replace Dawson, whom had quit the show in January. Dawson then committed suicide at her Woolloomooloo, Syndey apartment in February.
Brian Walsh, the director of television for Foxtel, said Peaches Geldof had never signed a contract, and the plans for her to join the modeling reality show were still in the discussion phase.
“Peaches was one of a number of names suggested but we took the decision that it was too soon to make any calls,” he said. “The idea was not progressed beyond an initial stage.”
Walsh added that, following Dawson’s death, the plans for the show’s next season were put on hiatus.
Peaches Geldof’s funeral is scheduled to take place on Easter Monday, April 21, according to BBC. The service will be private, and her family said that it will be held at the Kent church where she got married. This is also the same church where the service for Peaches’ mother, Paula Yates, was held in 2000.
Geldof’s cause of death is still uncertain after a post-mortem examination came back inconclusive. Kent police aren’t considering it to be suspicious, but it is “unexplained and sudden.” Toxicology results are still pending.
A recent report from The Inquisitr stated that Peaches Geldof’s youngest son, Phaedra, was found playing close to her body, when it was discovered. The family hopes that, since the child is so young, his memory won’t retain the tragic event. But they were somewhat comforted in knowing that Peaches didn’t die alone.
“Phaedra was by her side most of the time, even when she was sleeping,” an unnamed source said. “At the very least, there can be some comfort that she wasn’t by herself when she died.”
