Former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins has pleaded guilty to a number of sex offences, including two charges of attempting to rape a baby.

The Welsh star appeared at Cardiff Crown Court in Wales on Tuesday (26Nov13) for the first day of his trial where he sensationally changed his previous not guilty pleas.

The 36 year old, who previously faced 24 charges, admitted a number of offences, including sexually assaulting a child aged under 13, conspiring to sexually assault a child under the age of 13, possessing an indecent photograph of a child and taking indecent photographs of children, as well as possessing an extreme pornographic image involving a sex act on an animal.

He also admitted two counts of attempting to rape a baby, according to Walesonline.co.uk.

Two female co-defendants, aged 21 and 24, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also changed their pleas and admitted a number of offences.

Watkins will be sentenced on 19 December (13).

The singer's group Lostprophets split a month before his trial was due to begin.
