Penny Lancaster has been spotted out on patrol after she completed her training as a special police constable.
The star, who’s married to music legend Rod Stewart, was seen taking no nonsense on her rounds, as she scolded a man for public urination.
Donning her uniform, which included a stab-proof jacket, Penny ordered the young man to clean up his mess, marching him to a shop to buy some water.
The 50-year-old was seen out on patrol with a colleague in the City of London, getting stuck into her new job.
Penny seemed at home in the role, after her appearance on Channel 4’s 2019 series Famous and Fighting Crime, which inspired her to start her training.
Special constables are volunteer police officers who have many of the same powers as normal police officers.
However, Penny’s choice to take up the role wasn’t a completely popular one, with husband Rod left worried about her.
‘Rod and the boys knew I wanted to get involved but I don’t think they imagined it would come to me actually paving a new career for myself,’ the mum-of-two explained to Hello!.
‘But it’s here, it’s happened, and I’m out there. Rod and the kids were a bit nervous of me becoming a police officer because you hear so much trouble on the news, but I told them there’s lots of women, daughters, sisters and mums who are police officers and are serving the community.
‘I feel I have joined another family into which I have been fully accepted.’
Despite his worries, Penny explained that Rod, 76, has never tried to put her off the job.
The star also recently opened up about saving the life of a suicidal woman, pointing out how many different sides there are to the job.
Penny said on 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 very desperate on the bridge the other night.
‘It can be rewarding in so many ways.’
Penny and Rod have been married since 2007 and share their two sons Aiden and Alastair.
