Mairead Philpott is looking distraught. Mick Philpott is staring at the floor. Paul Mosley looks relaxed.
The Judge says: "There is no precedent for this case...I have not the slightest doubt that Mick Philpott was the driving force."
Paul Mosley, who was convicted of six separate counts of manslaughter following the deaths of the Philpott children, spoke to the Derby Telegraph two weeks before he was charged, telling "lie after lie in a desperate attempt to distance himself from the horrific crime".
During the interview he denied his role in the fatal fire and complained about how he was being treated by police.
He said: "I was arrested after the fire. They took my clothes, my laptop, everything. Now I just want it all back. I want to get on with the rest of my life. I'm going to my MP. I'm seriously going to take it all the way."
The newspaper said Mosley seemed proud that he was the last person to have seen the Philpott children alive and claimed he was at the house with Mick and Mairead Philpott only hours before the fire started.
He said: "I was there on the night of the fire. I was one of the last people to see the kids alive. I'm the main man, the one everyone wants to talk to. I know someone in London who says the media in China will pay me millions for my story."
Amanda Cousins, the sister of Mick Philpott's former mistress Lisa Willis, has told ITV Daybreak that Mr Philpott 'is a very manipulative person.'
She said: "He really is a nasty character, nothing's good enough for Mick's sentence, he should get life."
Lisa Willis' brother-in-law Ian Cousins, has told ITV's Daybreak that he felt 'sick' after being arrested by police investigating the house-fire which killed six children in Derby.
He said: "The Philpotts should get six counts of life each. I think they've had more than enough press coverage and it shouldn't be about them, it should be about those six children."
Mick and Mairead Philpott are facing jail today for killing their six children in a house fire after they were convicted of manslaughter.
Mick and Sharon Russell, who were friends with the couple, showed ITV's This Morning a letter yesterday that Philpott had written while he was in prison.
It read: "When we are free, which we will be, we are all going to get p***** but me and my darling beloved wife, the most important thing that we will do when this happens is to spend the whole day with our babies, at the graveside.
"We don't care if it's raining, gale force winds, snowing. I'm going straight up there, then we shall probably, no we will, rape each other then we can all celebrate our freedom."
Mick and Mairead Philpott and their accomplice Paul Moseley will learn their fates today as they are sentenced for the manslaughter of the couple's six children. The trio will appear before Mrs Justice Thirlwall at Nottingham Crown Court.
Each were convicted of six separate counts of manslaughter following a fatal blaze at the family home in Victory Road, Derby, on May 11 last year. Sentencing on Wednesday was adjourned to allow the Judge time to consider her decision.
Mrs Justice Thirlwall adjourned the case because she wanted more time to consider sentences.
She said she had listened with care during the whole trial and added: "I want to reflect further before moving forward to the sentencing exercise."
Mick Philpott, his 32-year-old wife Mairead and their friend Paul Mosley, 46, will return to court on Thursday to be sentenced.
