The daughter of Irish legend Bob Geldof, Peaches, is facing possible criminal charges after naming two women, whom she says allowed their babies to be abused by paedophile Ian Watkins.

The Lost Prophets singer admitted a string of sickening child-related sex offences at Cardiff Crown Court, including two attempts at raping a baby.

Geldof removed the Twitter statement earlier today.

However, reports suggest she could face criminal reprecussions as identifying sex offence victims is a crime.

Two unnamed female fans, who were due to stand trial with him, also admitted a series of sex-related offences on the eve of the joint prosecution.

Both women, aged 21 and 24, were revealed as the mothers of the baby victims targeted by Watkins. The singer and the two women will be sentenced in Cardiff on December 18.

While she did delete the statement in question, she has since posted a new statement against Watkins.

"I can't even bring myself to comment on Watkins admitting raping babies either," she began.

"As a mother of two babies myself all I can think of as I read the stories is how utterly traumatised those babies must have been during and how he has now robbed them of their childhoods all for his own sick, twisted pleasure.

"The papers MUST name "woman A & B" who offered up their own babies to this monster in the hopes of being close to their (majorly talentless) musical hero without a backward glance, as they are equal in their monstrosity. It sickens me to see just how far the cult of celebrity and super fandom has come when grown women are passing their own kids round. I hate the world sometimes.
