Penny Lancaster, 50, spoke on today’s Loose Women about her exciting new role as a police officer, after she received her badge after years of hard work and training. However, her co-star Nadia Sawalha was left stunned, as she brought the former model’s commitment into question.

I finally got my warrant card

Nadia originally said to Penny: “I have to tell you Penny, when you were first talking about all of this, I didn’t believe you.

“I didn’t think you were actually going to do it. It’s incredible.”

Penny was thrilled to share the news with her Loose Women co-stars after she spent Monday celebrating with her friends and family.

Penny shared on the show: “I finally got my warrant card and my City of London Police badge.”

Speaking on her start date, she said: “I will be out there next month.”

Addressing Nadia’s disbelief, Penny said: “When I say I’m going to do something I’m normally 100% in it.”

“And it was challenging, certainly was in the last eight months of training, especially with lockdown and doing summer lessons on Zoom.

“But we were able to finish the course,” she finished.

Jane Moore then offered a more positive response to Penny’s big news.

She interjected: “You’re going to look so good in uniform!”

Penny was first inspired to become a police officer when she appeared on Channel 4’s Famous and Fighting Crime two years ago.

Her husband Rod Stewart was very supportive of her stint on the popular programme and has encouraged her to pursue a career in the police force.

Penny told the Daily Mail: “Well he is a worrier, so when I was doing the filming for the show, which was in Peterborough, he’d be phoning to check I was OK.”

She added: “But he also saw how much I got from it. I think he understands. The kids are the same.”

Penny appeared on the 2019 series alongside Katie Piper, Made in Chelsea’s Jamie Laing, Gogglebox’s Sandi Bogle and Marcus Brigstocke.

Responding to 999 calls alongside the Cambridge constabulary provided her with a sense of purpose and job satisfaction.

Since the show ended, Penny has passed all her policing exams, and will “commit to a certain number of shifts” with the City of London Police.

She explained: “Special constables are paired up with experienced, full-time officers but they’re able to make arrests, offer support, have the same power as regular police officers do.”

It was Penny’s 50th birthday last month and she celebrated her big birthday with a celebration at home.

Penny typed: “My lockdown 50th was magical. The outpouring of love and birthday wishes warmed me to my soul.

“You made my birthday complete, just as you make my life complete. My Zoom party was full of unforgettable memories, tears and laughter. “
