Sheffield pantomime star Ian H Watkins - also known as H from Steps - has quit Twitter after he was mixed up with a paedophile rock star with the same name.

The Lyceum panto star, who is playing Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk next month, received a barrage of abuse on Twitter after his namesake - singer Ian Watkins from the band Lost Prophets - pleaded guilty to a string of sex charges, including attempting to tape an 11-month-old baby.

Panto star Ian Watkins posted on Twitter that he was going to ‘take a break’ from the site.
