British blonde Peaches Geldof (full name Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof) is practically a professional socialite and an occasional broadcaster. Peaches, the English version of Paris Hilton, is the granddaughter of late British television show host Hughie Green. Her parents are actor/musician Bob Geldof (member of The Boomtown Rats band, "Pink" in 1982's The Wall) and the late Paula Yates. The Boomtown Rats were the first Irish band to have a #1 U.K. hit with 1978's "Rat Trap." This was followed by another U.K. #1, "I Don't Like Mondays," which was their only U.S. hit. However, Bob Geldof himself is best known for his charity work. He co-wrote the 1984 song "Do The Know It's Christmas" and pulled together an all-star group of pop singers to record the song under the name Band Aid. The song entered the charts at #1, and became the best-selling single in U.K. history at that time, and eventually raised a great deal of money to help alleviate famine in Ethiopia. In 1985, he put together Live Aid, the first of the big charity rock shows, and followed it with 2005's Live 8. In 1986, he was knighted by the Queen for his charitable work. Paula was a television writer and presenter, and was most famous for her work on the British TV series The Tube and The Big Breakfast.
