Last year, Rod Stewart's wife revealed she was set to become a crime-fighting model after she signed up to join the City of London Police as a special constable.
And now Penny Lancaster - who was inspired to join the police after she had a taste of life on the beat through a reality TV series she took part in - has revealed her husband is jumpy about her job.
The mum-of-two said: "He's got over the initial nerves of, 'I'm not going to be able to sleep until you come home'.
"I can't really message him on the job. But I always text him when I get back to the station to reassure him before he puts his head down."
She explained: "He sees the joy I get out of it. But now he also sees my confidence.
"And he's proud I'm raising the positive profile of the police and helping support police charities."
She continued: "Sometimes I have to pinch myself. I'm in all these glamorous outfits and then I've got to get to the police station on time.
The 50-year-old has reportedly completed five patrols so far but is yet to make her first arrest.
Penny featured on the show Famous and Fighting Crime in 2019 where she was seen working with officers from Cambridgeshire Police. She officially received her badge after completing training in April this year.
