Peaches Geldof is to move in with a devout Muslim family in Morocco for a Channel 4 series about religion.

The 17-year-old daughter of Bob Geldof will live with a Muslim teenager and her family for the documentary A Beginner's Guide to Islam.

Channel 4 said the hour-long show will find out "what the Islamic world makes of this precocious London party girl".

The three-part series, which will be broadcast in the autumn, will also explore Hinduism and Scientology.

Comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli will become a student of Scientology to investigate the religion made famous by Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

Former EastEnders actor Paul Nicholls will travel to India to look at Hinduism.

A programme spokeswoman said: "The contributors will come face to face with three of the world's most talked about religions, exploring their unfamiliar rituals and testing regimes."
