Peaches Geldof's youngest sister Tiger Lily has been a massive source of comfort for her entire family since the shock death of her sibling last month.

The 25-year-old presenter was discovered dead at home last month with youngest son Phaedra, 12 months, by her side and insiders say 17-year-old Tiger - who was found in the room with her mother Paula Yates when she passed away 14 years ago - has been a huge source of support for their loved ones, including Peaches' husband Thomas Cohen.

A source close to the teenager - whose father is the late Michael Hutchence - and her family told Grazia magazine: "Thom's family are being amazing but surprisingly it is Tiger who has proved to be the greatest support for both families.

"She is the girl left in the same scene her nephew was found in and yet she has become this incredible rock for everyone when she's just a teenager. It's amazing."

Peaches' husband - with whom she also had two-year-old son Astala - and her sister Pixie, 23, are said to be finding it particularly hard to come to terms with her death, which is believed to have been caused by heroin use.

The source added: "Pixie has been in a state of uncontrollable grief - Peaches was so close to her. They shared a room, they shared a tragedy and they shared a wild youth and coming of age.

Thom is just catatonic with grief. His world has stopped."
