Toxicology tests reportedly show that Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, died from a heroin overdose earlier in April. The Times of London reported that the results of the toxicology tests will be revealed at her inquest tomorrow.

The body of the 25-year-old TV star and socialite was discovered at her home earlier this month with police describing her death as “non-suspicious.”

The post-mortem examination carried out at Darent Valley Hospital did not reveal a concrete cause of death, which led to further investigation and toxicology tests being carried out on samples of her blood and tissue.

A 10 minute inquest hearing is to take place today.

A spokesperson for the coroner revealed last night that a statement from a senior police officer will be heard and the coroner will release the cause of death at today's hearing.

The British TV star’s funeral took place at the St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in the Kent village of Davington in Faversham on April 21. That is the same church where her tragic mother Paula Yates' funeral was held, and where Peaches’ wedding to musician Thomas Cohen took place.

Peaches Geldof was buried in a sky blue coffin, which had been painted to show an image of Peaches together with Cohen, their two sons Astala, aged 23 months, and Phaedra, 11 months, alongside their pets.
