The estranged wife of paralysed former motorbike stunt rider Eddie Kidd has pleaded guilty to assaulting him - days before she was due to stand trial.
Samantha Kidd, 44, pleaded not guilty in January to claims she beat the 54-year-old wheelchair-bound star over a four-month period, and a two-day trial was set to start next Tuesday.
Today at a pre-trial hearing at Brighton Magistrates' Court, Kidd admitted four counts of assault by beating between July and October last year, Sussex Police said.
Unemployed Kidd, of High Street, Seaford, East Sussex, was released on bail and she will be sentenced on August 1.
