Branding the TV movie 'exhausting' to watch, Peaches Geldof took aim at Domhnall Gleeson's portrayal of her father Bob.

has been left unimpressed with a British TV drama based on her father's campaign to stage 1985 charity supergig Live Aid, branding it "exhausting" to watch. The story of how Bob Geldof and promoter Harvey Goldsmith put the massive event together, staged in London and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in just six months was dramatized for a BBC TV movie, "When Harvey Met Bob", starring as the singer and Ian Hart as the promoter. It debuted on Sunday, December 26 - and Peaches was watching.

But the socialite/columnist was far from happy with the Christmas TV special - and she has taken aim at Gleeson's portrayal of her father. In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "The guy acting as my dad on When Harvey Met Bob on tv right now is beyond terrible. What is that ACCENT?! He's not a leprechaun!"

"Just so everyone knows, my dad really isn't this intense. Ever. Its kind of exhausting watching this. Aside from the awful acting."
