Jody Latham admits drug charge

TV star Jody Latham is facing a possible jail sentence after he admitted to growing cannabis.

The actor, who has starred in hit comedy Shameless and long-running soap opera EastEnders, pleaded guilty to a charge of producing the drug during a court hearing on Friday.

He has been released on bail and is due to be sentenced on 17 December.

Latham was arrested last year after cops found 24 marijuana plants, worth an estimated ยฃ14,000, at an address in Lancashire.
