Live 8 organiser SIR Bob Geldof was so depressed after ex-wife Paula Yates divorced him he contemplated suicide..

British TV presenter Yates - who died of a drug overdose in 2000 - left Geldof in 1996 after 10 years of marriage, taking their three daughters FIFI TRIXIBELLE, 12, Peaches, six, and PIXIE, four, with her.

Geldof was so distraught, only a friend's wisdom stopped him from taking his own life.

He says, "After Paula left me and took our three kids, I was ruined. I would cry in my sleep and wake up, my face wet.

"I reached a point where I didn't want to wake up feeling how I was feeling ever again.

"And so I made a 'what's the point in living?' list - and it came out negative.

"I called my mate Pat and I told him what I'd done and he said, 'You stay exactly where you are, I'm coming over'.

"He went through the list saying, 'That's b**locks,' and, or course, by the end of it, there was not a f**king chance I was gonna top myself."
