Former rocker Cohen spoke in a new interview about how he has coped in the three years since his wife's tragic death.
As the third anniversary of her tragically young death approaches, the late Peaches Geldof’s husband, Thomas Cohen, has spoken frankly about “deeply traumatising” period that followed her passing as he raised their two young children alone – and even about the moment he discovered her body.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild this week about the aftermath of her death, Cohen said that sticking to a rigid routine as he raised their two children, Astala (now 4) and Phaedra (now 3), was the only way he managed to get through the grief.

Some crazy Twilight fans had camped in London's Leicester Square for days before last night's UK premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, attended by the likes of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Spending most of their time in Los Angeles these days, the A-list pair must have thought "Who the hell's that guy?" as they spotted X-Factor's Christopher Maloney strutting his stuff down the red-carpet. Indeed, whilst their premiere earlier in the week across in Los Angeles saw the great and the good of Hollywood come out, the stars of the sci-fi film series would've been surprised to find themselves brushing shoulders with such British, um, luminaries as Jermaine Defoe, Joey Essex, Tinchy Stryder and numerous gold medallists from the Great Britain summer Olympics squad still trying to catch those last rays of their moment in the sun.
Model Abbey Clancy and Sarah Harding were among those taking to the catwalk for the Lingerie London Fashion Show at the Old Billingsgate Market in London last night (October 24, 2012). The celebrity models were showcasing underwear for lingerie labels Agent Provocateur and Atsuko Kudo.
Clancy, a 26-year-old model and mother-of-one, wore a gold basque and matching knickers before returning to the catwalk later in the evening wearing red-topped stockings and gold heels. The Liverpudlian was watched on by proud husband Peter Crouch, who understandably beamed with delight. As mentioned, Abbey wasn't the only star to appear at the fundraiser, with television presenter and model Zara Martin also making an appearance.
