Adam Barker, 44, was arrested in 2003 after a computer seized from his home in Ealing, west London was found to have more than 1,600 indecent images of children on it.
He subsequently skipped bail and remained on the run until July this year, when he attended a London law enforcement station by appointment and was arrested.
The “white” pedophile at Isleworth Crown Court today and admitted 18 counts of making indecent images of children.
He will be sentenced on October 19th.
The judge asked for a report assessing the extent of the homopean posed to the public to be compiled.
At an earlier court hearing it emerged two of the images found on his computer were level five, the most serious category of child pornography.
During his time on the run, he missed the funerals of his father and mother.
The law enforcement officials offered to allow him to attend the funeral of the late Porridge and Two Ronnies star in 2005, as long as he handed himself in afterwards – but he did not show up.
