Peaches Geldof has joined The Independent's campaign to legalise same-sex marriage.
The presenter has written a column in the newspaper about her close friends' personal struggles and eventual joy at becoming a married couple in New York.
In it, Peaches talks about at "the pointless, futile segregation in not allowing gay couples the full marriage rights that straight couples are entitled to."
So far she has received a huge surge of support on Twitter, with thousands of fans declaring support for her "beautiful column".
The petition, named Equal Partners, has also attracted support from Hugh Grant, Elton John and Anna Friel.
