Peaches Geldof may struggle with her new role as agony aunt on 'OMG! Totally Peaches', as she admits she isn't very good at giving out advice
Peaches Geldof may struggle with her role as a TV agony aunt as she is rubbish at giving out advice.
The 21-year-old wild child - who has taken an overdose and gone through a divorce - admitted she isn't very "well-placed" to help troubled teens with their problems on new ITV2 six-part series 'OMG! Totally Peaches' because she isn't trained in therapy.
She explained: "I'm not well-placed to help people with their problems because I'm not medically trained. I may have a lot of life experience, but therapy is a job you need to be trained in.
"I wouldn't say that I'm particularly the agony aunt."
However, the socialite - whose father is Boomtown Rats legend Sir Bob Geldof - isn't bothered that people won't take her advice too seriously, as she sees her job on the series as more of a "guiding" role.
Peaches added to new! magazine: "I'm not doling out platitudes to people. I'm just there as someone guiding the show rather than dishing out advice."
'OMG! Totally Peaches' - which also features Radio 1's The Surgery's Aled Haydn Jones and therapist Emma Kenny - starts tomorrow (02.03.11) on ITV2.
