Rocker Ian Watkins has reappeared before a court to face allegations of plotting to rape a baby.
The 35-year-old vocalist, from the band Lostprophets, was arrested with two women earlier this month.
As well as being charged with conspiring to rape a child under the age of 13, Watkins faces five other sex abuse charges.
They include conspiring to engage in sexual activity with two young children as well as making, downloading and distributing child pornography and accessing "extreme pornography" - relating to animals.
During a previous hearing at Cardiff Magistrates Court, Watkins' legal team said the singer would be denying the charges against him.
Today, Watkins and his co-defendants appeared in Cardiff Crown Court via video-link.
All three only spoke to confirm their names at the preliminary hearing, a formality in the legal process, which lasted less than 10 minutes.
Watkins was refused bail and remanded in custody with a plea and case management hearing scheduled at Cardiff Crown Court for March 11.
