Thomas Cohen, the husband of Peaches Geldof, has led tributes to his late wife, saying that he and the couple's two sons "shall love her forever".

Geldof, the television presenter, model and journalist, was found dead in her home in Wrotham, Kent, on Monday. The 25-year-old was the second daughter of musician Bob Geldof at the late Paula Yates, who died of an accidental heroin overdose 14 years ago. Officials have ruled out suicide and are treating Geldof's death as "unexplained" but not "suspicious".

The news broke 24 hours after Geldof, who had 169,000 followers on Twitter, posted a picture of herself being held by her mother. She captioned it: "Me and my mum."

Cohen, the singer and musician who married Geldof in September 2012, said: "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts every day. We shall love her forever. Thomas, Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen."

Who is Thomas Cohen?

Cohen was the lead singer of the post-punk group S.C.U.M, who were based in south east London until the band split in January 2013.

The name comes from radical feminist Valerie Solanas' manifesto, which she wrote in 1967, urging women to "overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and eliminate the male sex."

S.C.U.M released their debut single Visions Arise in September 2008 and have toured extensively since then. IN 2011, the band was chosen by Portishead to perform at the ATP I'lll Be Your Mirror festival at London's Alexandra Palace.

Raised in south east London, Cohen's father is a social worker and his mother is an artist. He attended grammar school in Sidcup, but decided against going to university in order to concentrate on his band.

When did Geldof and Cohen marry?

The couple had been friends before they began dating in December 2010, when Peaches had returned to Britain after living in the United States.

In December 2011, Geldof and Cohen announced their engagement. Although Cohen proposed in May, they kept the news from their families until Boxing Day as they wanted to enjoy "sacred time" as a couple.

Geldof announced she was pregnant with their first child in January 2012, Astala Dylan Willow Geldof-Cohen, who was born in April 2012. At the time, Cohen dismissed rumours he would leave S.C.U.M. Their second son, Phaedra Bloom Forever, was born in April 2013, which coincided with that would have been the 54th birthday of Paula Yates, Peaches' late mother.
