The 25-year-old socialite's body was found at the home she shared with husband Thomas Cohen and sons Phaedra, one, and Astala, two, in Wrotham, Kent, England, on April 7th, and detectives will officially announce her cause of death at an inquest later this morning.

North West Kent Coroner Roger Hatch will confirm the results of a toxicology test, which found Peaches' died as a direct result of the class-A drug, and the inquest at Gravesend Old Town Hall will be immediately adjourned, according to the The Times newspaper.

To say the news will be devastating for Peaches' family is a bit of a gross understatement. Her mother, Paula Yates, also died of an accidental heroin overdose in 2000, aged 41. Peaches, who was just 11 when it happened, said it was something she didn't even begin to come to terms with until she left home at 16. At the time of Yates' death, they chose to carry on as normal, even attending school the day after she was found.

Police discovered no evidence of drugs paraphernalia in the house, sparking speculation that a friend or family member may have removed evidence from the property prior to the arrival of paramedics.

An autopsy carried out on her body by a Home Office Pathologist shortly after her death proved inconclusive, so samples of her blood and tissue were sent off to a laboratory for further testing.

A spokesman for the police station in Kent declined to comment on reports she overdosed and added: "The inquest opens later today and that is all I can say."

The hearing is expected to last approximately 10 minutes and a full inquest into the model and TV presenter's death will take place in late July.

Peaches - who had reportedly become increasingly obsessed with her mother's death - was laid to rest last week at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Davington, Kent, where her father delivered a heart-breaking eulogy.

Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Razorlight's Johnny Borrell, Eliza Doolittle, Jaime Winstone and Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman were among the other mourners at her funeral.
