After Lostprophets' vocalist Ian Watkins was charged with several accounts of child sex offences and previously "furiously denying" the charges earlier in the year, he has now plead guilty to the majority of offences.

Update: More detailed (and distressing) updates on the charges heard in court have been added to the BBC News page.

Update #2: ITV News reporter, Rupert Evelyn, is currently live tweeting the court proceedings. Be warned, although he is "heavily editing" the details, it makes for an incredibly unsettling read.

We've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists to this address and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (if you're in a band, is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?
