Peaches was in talks for Top Model gig

Peaches Geldof had been in talks to join Australia's Next Top Model as a judge before her death last week.

The 25-year-old British television presenter and former model was one of several candidates considered for a role with the upcoming ninth season of the talent search show, Foxtel says.

In an interview with Britain's Sunday Times newspaper published this week, Geldof said she was looking forward to moving to Australia with her family for three months to work on an unnamed TV project.

"I can't say what it is yet, but I'll be there for three months," she told the newspaper.

"Of course (my children) will come with me because obviously I wouldn't leave them for that long."

A spokesman for Foxtel on Thursday confirmed preliminary discussions had taken place.

Shortly after Geldof's interview, plans for the ninth series of Top Model were delayed until later this year and no contract was ever signed.

There had been around half a dozen potential candidates being considered.

Foxtel said Geldof was not considered a replacement for the late Charlotte Dawson, who was a model mentor as well as a judge on the program.
