LOSTPROPHETS frontman Ian Watkins will stand trial this summer accused of conspiracy to rape a baby.

A handful of female fans gathered at Cardiff Crown Court, South Wales, as the band’s lead singer appeared at a hearing via videolink. However, due to technical difficulties, matters were adjourned until May. But the defence for Watkins, 35, of Pontypridd, has previously said that he denies all charges.

Watkins, whose band has sold more than 3.5 million albums, allegedly conspired with another woman to rape a one-year-old girl. He is also accused of two counts of conspiring to engage in sexual touching with two young children. He is also charged with possessing, making and distributing indecent images of children and possessing extreme animal pornography.
