British actress Lauren Socha has pleaded guilty to racially aggravated assault at a court hearing in England.

The Bafta-winning Misfits star changed her plea at the beginning of her trial this week (beg30Apr12) after originally denying the charge.

The 21-year-old, who won the best supporting actress award at the Baftas in 2011, attacked taxi driver Sakandar Iqbal in Derby, England last October.

She is due to be sentenced later this year.
