Fifi Geldof, 38, looks identical to tragic mum Paula Yates as she shares selfie

Fifi Geldof has posted a selfie on Instagram and the likeness to her mother Paula Yates is uncanny.

The 38-year old, the late presenter's eldest daughter with Bob Geldof, is pictured with short, pink hair fashioned in a '40s pin-up ‘do with natural make-up.

Paula, who died of a heroin overdose aged just 41, favoured cropped blonde hair – it was her iconic look.

Fifi captioned the image: "Mink pink and 40s pin-up curls!"

EastEnders icon Martine McCutcheon was one of the first to remark on the likeness to Paula, saying: “Wow. You look like your gorgeous mum here. Love it!"

TV presenter Gaby Roslin added: "Gorgeous. You look so like your beautiful mummy.”

Fifi, who is a makeup artist, mostly steers clear of the spotlight and according to her bio, loves dogs, horses, tattoos, offensive humour and Disney.

Fifi’s sisters are Pixie, 30, who is pregnant with her first child and TIger Lily, 24, who is the daughter of Paula and the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence. It is believed she lives in her dad’s native Australia.

Her older sister Peaches tragically died aged 25, also from a heroin overdose.

Fifi is married to sand sculptor Andrew Robertson, who she married in Kent in 2016 at the same church where her mum and Peaches are buried.

Paula was married to Bob Geldof from 1986 to 1996 before starting a relationship with Hutchence – though it is said her affair with the Aussie rocker started some time before this.

She famously interviewed the INXS singer on a bed during the Big Breakfast show in 1994 where the chemistry between them was said to be electric and she said live on air: "For the first time, this is a guest I want to have my leg over."

Michael died in a hotel room in Sydney in 1997. The official ruling was suicide but a distraught Paula later insisted that it was a case of auto-erotic asphyxiation.
