Bob Geldof has referred to the grief of losing his daughter Peaches, nearly six years ago, as 'bottomless' and 'ever-present'.

The musician, 68, whose daughter died of a heroin overdose at age 25 in April 2014, recently attended the funeral of a friend's son, forcing him to reflect on Peaches' death.

Speaking on The Tommy Tiernan Show on Ireland's RTÉ One, Bob said: 'Last week I went to the funeral of my mate's son, and he didn't want me to come for fear that I'd relive it but I had to be there for him cause it is unbearable.

'Time doesn't heal, time accommodates, it's ever-present.'

He went on to add: 'You're driving along and you're at the traffic lights and for no reason whatsoever the person in question inhabits you.

'And I'll cry and then I'll look around to make sure the people around don't see me or are posting a photo or whatever - but that happens and that happens to everyone.

'You just do it, you cry to the maximum and then you go, the grief is bottomless and intimate. I didn't understand why I lost everything I thought to be true.'
