Whilst I'm very sorry I can't say I'm all that surprised

I think the behaviour of her parents must have a lot to do with this - apparently she never got over their divorcing when she was only seven not to mention her mother's drug habit

Both of her parents are/were self centred selfish idiots who put their own egos before that of their child and it's pretty hollow for her father to be talking in the terms he is this evening Sad

Her father can only help if he's asked. It's sad to know people just don't consider they leave people to clear up. I feel so sorry for her children and husband. It's quite troubling noticing her tweeter account has a picture of her and mother on there.

Very sad, whatever the circumstances.

Very sad, especially with two tiny children left motherless.

Too young to die whatever the circumstances. Awful for her husband & children and also her dad. Sad

It made me go cold when I heard this tragic news ...so young and everything to live for ...those poor boys.

Bob did as good a job as he could, under the circumstances. He kept his family together, including little Tiger. He's a good man, whose family is everything to him. I thought he paid her a beautiful tribute yesterday, even though his heart must be shattered into a million pieces.

Now, he's experiencing grief beyond anything that any of us could possibly imagine, and probably won't even want to wake up, on any given morning, such will be his pain. It's every parent's worst nightmare - certainly, I don't know how I'd cope if it happened to me. Doesn't bear thinking about. I've seen it happen with my niece's daughter Sarah, who died at 21 years of age. She was born with spina bifida, one lung, one kidney, curvature of the spine...the lot. But still she managed to live her life, and even had a child, who is now 11 years old, a beautiful kid, and is brought up by my niece and her husband, as their own. But she died suddenly one summer, nine years ago

But I have no idea of the pain she continues to feel. How could I? So today, I'm thinking about the people who are left to grieve, over their precious Peaches, and the babies who will only know of their mother, through old videos and pictures, and stories of her. While the rest of the family will watch the boys grow, seeing mannerisms and features in them, bringing bitter sweet memories forever, which no amount of money will heal. And I'd guarantee that Bob would give over every penny he has, just to see his beloved daughter, one more time.

I agree Raver and very well put.

Beautifully put Raver.

None of us are perfect and Bob was good enough to adopt Tiger Lilly even though she was not his child.
He seems like a caring sort of guy to me and I really feel for him, no parent should have to bury their child. Sad

Very true,Toggy..it is to Sir Bob's credit that he wanted his girls and their half-sister to be brought up together even though he wasn't Tiger's father plus there was a lot of ill feeling between the adults involved.

More heartache for the family tomorrow with the autopsy due to be performed. Crying or Very sad

What a beautiful young woman, too - one who had obviously inherited a lot of her dad's "no bull" characteristics. I loved the clip of her having a go at that horrible, pompous, patronising and obnoxious cow Katie Hopkins* on ITV's Daybreak (I think) recently. That makes her OK in my book!

* Do you get the feeling that I really don't like that woman??? Smile
