Peaches Geldof wasn't making any secret of her feelings for her new beau when she joined him for a movie premiere in London this week. The teenage socialite, who has become a regular fixture on the capital's party circuit, was sporting a white t-shirt emblazoned with the words "I love Sean Blake" as she arrived for the Leicester Square screening of new Brit flick Kidulthood.

Sir Bob's 17-year-old daughter, who is also earning a reputation for her outspoken views, was keen to applaud the controversial movie. The hard-hitting drama offers a very different take on the "teen flick" genre as it follows a group of working class youngsters as they negotiate sex, violence and substance abuse during a day off from school.

"Notting Hill showed the affluent side, and now it's great that it's being shown in a different way," said Peaches. "There really is a dark underbelly to London. I think this is what the film is trying to show."

Jaime Winstone, the daughter of British screen favourite Ray Winstone, makes her debut in the film alongside newcomers Noel Clarke, Aml Ameen and Red Madrell. "It is going to open a few doors and a few eyes for parents, older people and the younger generation," she said. "My dad hasn't seen it yet, but he's very excited and very proud of me."

Also in attendance was producer Ray Panthaki, who TV fans will recognise as Ronny from EastEnders. The 27-year-old performer, who hails from a tough neighbourhood in north London, said he could easily have turned out like one of the movie's characters. "I was quite surprised by the controversy," he explained. "They are saying it glorifies 'happy slapping' because you see it in context, but if anything it's telling kids that if they get up to this sort of behaviour there are lots of repercussions."
