Peaches Geldof has confirmed that she is a follower of Scientology.

The socialite, who was first rumoured to be interested in the controversial faith in June, made the revelation in a new ITV2 documentary which sees her being interviewed by Fearne Cotton, according to The Sun.

Geldof is quoted as saying: "I've been [a Scientologist] for a while now. It's like, I was confused about what path to go through and I feel like I needed a spiritual path and I was looking at different things.

"I felt I was lacking something when I didn't have a faith. In the end, all it's about is making yourself a better person. My father says anything that makes me feel like a better person and makes me happy is good."

The 20-year-old daughter of Boomtown Rat Bob Geldof also spoke about how she is fascinated by quantum theories.

She explained: "You know what I'm intrigued by? Stephen Hawking's theories and Richard Dawkins' theory. That's what I care about. I want to talk about the Hadron Collider.

"I've always been really interested in quantum theories and how we came to be and why. That's how, I guess, I got involved in spirituality and the religious path I chose to go down."

Fearne and... Peaches Geldof airs at 10pm tonight on ITV2.
