Rock star Ian Watkins is to appear at Cardiff Crown Court today to face allegations of plotting to rape a child.
The 35-year-old lead vocalist of Lostprophets was charged along with two women earlier this month.
South Wales Police said all three had been arrested as part of Operation Globe - which investigates allegations of child abuse. The two women cannot be named for legal reasons.
Watkins faces a total of six sex abuse charges, including conspiring to engage in sexual activity with two young children, as well as making, downloading and distributing child pornography, and assessing "extreme pornography."
