White, 27, of Corsham, Wiltshre pleaded guilty to the offences which he committed between January last year and April this year in the Bath area.

The recorder Mr Richard Tutt told the court White's barrister could not attend the hearing due to barristers' industrial action.

Due to his barrister not being present, sentencing offences, which each carry the risk of jail, could not proceed.

The recorder adjourned sentence until August 22 and remanded White in custody,

White simply said "thank you" as he was taken from court.

In March the troubled star missed a court hearing because he was in hospital. The Celebrity Big Brother contestant was due to appear before Swindon Magistrates' Court.

In a letter received by the court, a doctor said White was not fit to attend court, confirming that he was “in hospital for ongoing investigations”, but no further information was provided.

The Criminal Bar Association (CBA) is mounting days of strike action after saying its members have suffered an average decrease in earnings of 28% since 2006 – when taking inflation into account.

It accused the government of refusing to engage in negotiations "aimed at finding a fair settlement" to demands, which include the call for an immediate 15% increase in fees.

Announcing the strike ballot, the CBA said: "Without immediate action to halt the exodus of criminal barristers from our ranks, the record backlog that has crippled our courts will continue to inflict misery upon victims and defendants alike, and the public will be betrayed."

The tattooed model is son of chef Marco Pierre White. Junior is best known on Instagram where he shows off his extensive collection of tattoo artwork to his 40,000 followers.
