    Penny Lancaster saved a woman's life while working for the City of London Police

    The 50-year-old model - who is married to music star Sir Rod Stewart - helped to save a suicidal woman on a bridge after she joined the force as a special constable


    Penny told '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 pretty desperate on the bridge the other night. It can be rewarding in so many ways."

    Penny decided to join the force after making an appearance on Channel 4's 'Famous and Fighting Crime' in 2019.

    The model first revealed her ambition to become a policewoman during an online chat with her former 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Ian Waite.

    She said at the time: "I did a show called 'Famous and Fighting Crime' where I was involved in the police.

    "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."

    Penny also revealed she had to sit a number of tests to prove that she was up to the task.

    Penny said: "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."
