No California girl: Pixie Geldof rocks out in Los Angeles... as sister Peaches finally comes out of hiding

By Daily Mail Reporter

Walk this way: Pixie Geldof shuns the typical California Girl style and lives up to her rock n roll heritage out in LA yesterday

Among the throngs of quintessential California girls in Los Angeles yesterday, Peaches Geldof certainly stood out.

The 20-year-old lived up to her rock n roll heritage in an all-black ensemble of cropped leggings, T-shirt and leather jacket as she met a friend for lunch.

She is likely to be crashing on the couch of her sister Peaches, who lives in LA, but there was no sign of the older sibling - who has not been seen in public for several weeks.

Peaches, 21, halted her daily Tweeting and went into hiding around the same time she split from boyfriend Eli Roth in late October.

'I'm going to be off twitter for a while, but ill be back to update you all with my mundane, rambling chains of thought before you know it,' she wrote on her page on October 20.

She had been telling her followers about suffering from insomnia and 'sadness' in the days leading up to her Twitter blackout, and the next week news of her break up emerged.

But the socialite appears to be ready to step back into the spotlight, as it was announced today she will front a new TV show.

Peaches will present ITV2 series OMG! Totally Peaches, which will see her tackle personal issues put to her by members of a live studio audience.

The show, to be aired next Spring, will include a panel of professional experts and celebrity guests, who will discuss the issues, including relationships, sex, and all manner of behavioural issues, and advise on a solution.

Peaches said in a statement today: 'I'm so excited to be presenting this show and getting to meet and interact with the ITV2 audience and the guests.

'I can't wait to find out what's really on the minds of young people in Britain today.'

An ITV2 spokesperson added: 'We're really excited about this fresh, original new series.

'Peaches is a perfect fit for our young, celebrity-loving ITV2 audience and we're delighted to be working with her on shows that will entertain, inform and surprise.'

Geldof stepped back into the social networking world today to confirm the news, responding to the tweet by the network welcoming her 'to the ITV2 family', writing: 'Excited to be the presenter on this show!'

Peaches was last seen in public with the Geldof family at their Aunt Cleo's funeral.

It was a tragic time for the family, who buried their grandfather only a month before in Dublin.

Around the same time Peaches split from 38-year-old film director Eli Roth after eight months together.

The pair went public with their romance in March at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

A source told the Sunday Mirror at the time: 'Peaches is really sad that things didn't work out with Eli. They were very much in love and she'd never been so nuts about a guy.

'But both are hard workers and have huge commitments coming up, so they were due to be spending too much time apart.

'It was almost better for them to part ways before things got even trickier with making time for each other.

'They remain great friends and her time spent with him will remain extremely precious - but it's all over now.'
