Music legend Rod Stewart takes it upon himself to drive around London’s streets while his wife Penny trains to be a police officer in some of the ‘roughest’ areas
Rod Stewart has revealed that he can’t settle off to sleep at night amid concern for his police officer wife Penny Lancaster.
The music legend, 76, can’t rest until he knows that his beloved wife is safe and sound after her shift.
The Forever Young hitmaker sends a driver to pick up Penny, 50, every night after her shift ends, and sometimes, Rod even patrols the streets himself in a bid to keep an eye on his hard-working wife.
Rod admitted that he’s riddled with concerns for Penny because she can sometimes be working in some of the ‘roughest’ areas in London.

In a recent interview, the music star detailed his concern for his wife and her sometimes dangerous occupation.
“I don’t sleep unless I get a call to know she’s safe,” he told The Sun.
“I send a driver for her every night — her area can be rough.”
And when he’s feeling extra restless, Rod takes it upon himself to have a drive around London to look out for his police officer wife.
“I took my Rolls-Royce through London bridge the other night,” Rod told.
Rod’s wife has been working with the City of London police as a Special Constable since obtaining her badge back in April.
Penny first became inspired to join the police force after she took part in Channel 4 ’s Famous and Fighting Crime.
The thrilling reality TV series sees celebrities from all walks of life shadowing police officers during a variety of high intense situations.
And during her time in training over the past six months, Penny has already exceeded her husband’s expectations and done herself incredibly proud.
The former model has saved someone’s life by talking them down off a bridge.
Lifting the lid on Penny’s hard work, her proud husband Rod explained: “She loves London and wants to look after the city and the people in it.”
Penny previously explained why she felt compelled to train as a Special Constable.
“I did it initially as a TV show a couple of years ago working with the Peterborough police, and I just love the experience so much.
“It’s that sense of giving back and feeling how lucky we are, we want to do something, but it never feels enough.
“Somehow, working with the police, you feel like you will make a difference every day if it’s tangible, you have got your feet on the ground, you are interacting with the public, you are dealing with whatever comes your way,” she explained.
