Wet Wet Wet rocker NEIL MITCHELL has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend, just hours before he was due to stand trial for the offence.
The Scottish keyboardist first denied a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm following an altercation with Olivia Warren last July (09).
Mitchell was due to stand trial on Monday (17May10) at Kingston Crown Court in Surrey, England, but changed his plea at the last minute.
He has since been released on bail and is due to be sentenced on 14 June (10).
As part of his bail conditions, the star is banned from contacting Warren, and must not enter the road where she lives in south-west London.
