Penny Lancaster has revealed that she has set her sights on becoming a police officer.

The model, 49, had a taste of life on the beat when she took part in the Channel 4 show Famous And Fighting Crime.

And it seems that she enjoyed law enforcement so much that she has decided to take it up as a career.

Lancaster, who is married to Sir Rod Stewart, shared her plan with her former Strictly Come Dancing partner Ian Waite during an online chat.

“I did a show called Famous And Fighting Crime where I was involved with the police,” she said.

“It was terrifying, terrifying, but I never felt more comfortable in a position and I felt like this was where I was supposed to be.

“I have actually signed up to be an officer.

“I had to sit exams, English and maths type of exams, and go for an interview with two officers. And then I did a fitness test, so I had to get fit for that, it was the bleep test which was pretty tricky and I passed.

“Then I had to do this massive vetting form going through all personal details of myself, my family, people I know and all that kind of thing.

“So now I'm waiting for the training to begin so that I can actually serve the community.”

“I'm going to become a police officer for the City Police in London,” she said.
