Paula Yates was a TV-age celebrity in Britain, as famous for her high-profile romances and personal problems as for her professional talents. She grew famous in the 1980s as a saucy host and presenter on TV’s The Tube and later on The Big Breakfast, where she interviewed celebrity guests in bed.

She married rocker and activist Bob Geldof in 1986; the couple broke up in 1995, when Yates began dating Australian rock star Michael Hutchence.
