Penny Lancaster has embraced her new role as Special Constable in the police as she took on a graveyard shift in London this week. 

The model, 50, who is married to Sir Rod Stewart, 76, got her badge in April and has regularly been spotted on the beat since. 

Penny was seen working until 4am with Divisional Commander Ian Miller MBE, with the pair stopping off to grab a Tesco meal deal to keep their energy levels up in the early hours.

She was seen wearing a pair of glasses and carrying a high-vis vest and a bottle of water as she chatted to fellow officers. 

Although it appeared to be a fairly calm night, Penny has previously been spotted scolding men for publicly urinating in the street

Penny also opened up about helping a suicidal woman in June, revealing on Good Morning Britain: ‘When you think of policing, you think of the most violent crimes but we’re out there to help the most vulnerable.

‘At this particular time there’s a lot of incidents on the bridges and I did help someone who was very desperate on the bridge the other night. It can be rewarding in so many ways.’

She also revealed that she has the full support of husband Rod in her new career venture after being asked if he ever tried to talk her out of it. 

Penny explained: ‘Not at all. It is dangerous, but the police are the public, the public are the police.

‘There’s women and men alike – brothers, sisters, uncles, aunties, we’re just regular people but we put that uniform on to help protect.’

She added: ‘The campaigning and charity work I do, this is just an extension of working for the community and for the good of people. It’s free of charge.

‘I’m giving up my time to help the community and that’s why I wanted to become a police officer, to be out there. We’ve got to look after the police and make sure when their lives are taken, punishment is given.’
