SIR Bob Geldof's outspoken daughter Peaches has slammed "emaciated" stars including Nicole Richie and Victoria Beckham as the reason why so many girls have eating disorders.

The 16-year-old Brit reserves a particular dislike for California, where she feels the pressure to conform to a thin body shape is at its most acute.

Speaking on tonight's (01MAR06) UK TV show TEEN AMERICA, Peaches says, "I know girls with eating disorders. It's due to being bombarded with images of role models like emaciated Nicole and Victoria."
