Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster joined Ronan Keating and Harriet Scott on Magic Radio for Prince’s Trust Day. The pair touched on Rod’s upcoming album, Penny’s new work venture and what their school runs consist of. Rod admitted to the radio presenters how he doesn’t sleep when he knows she’s out in the streets training in her role as a Special Constable.

During the lockdown last year, Penny embarked on a new career journey as she began training to become a Special Constable for the police. 

Now out and about on the streets, Penny said: “I did it initially as a TV show a couple of years ago working with the Peterborough police, and I just love the experience so much.

“What’s wonderful about working with charities is, as Rod said, it’s that sense of giving back and feeling how lucky we are, we want to do something, but it never feels enough.

“Somehow, working with the police, you feel like you will make a difference every day if it’s tangible, you have got your feet on the ground, you are interacting with the public, you are dealing with whatever comes your way,” she explained. 

However, whilst proud of his wife’s achievements, Rod admitted his concerns: “I don’t sleep, I don’t sleep when she’s out on the beat. Until I know, she’s safe in the car.”

Rod also spoke about his upcoming album “The Tears of Hercules” and the speculation around the title Hercules being Elton John’s second name. 

Commenting on whether the title was a homage to the legendary singer, Rod revealed: “It was only recently I realised that his second name was Hercules.

 “But I didn’t, I didn’t know and the reason for the title, it’s quite thought-provoking, but a strong man can cry and should cry if he feels necessary.” 

The couple also joined in on the show’s school run feature, revealing their morning schedule and how their school run typically goes. 

“It’s chaos, they’re never on time, I mean my son today, the 15-year-old, 15 minutes late today coming down.

“And he comes down, and I was going to take him in the Lamborghini, (he said), ‘dad, you can’t take me in that, you’re not going in that dad’.

“It’s funny because the youngest boy loves it, ‘dad pick me up in the Ferrari, or pick me up in the Lamborghini’, he loves it, but the eldest one hates it,” he explained.

Across October 6, the radio station will have a variety of guests to celebrate The Prince’s Trust Day. 

Listeners can expect to hear charity Ambassadors Rob Brydon, Craig David, Joanna Lumley, Konnie Huq and Harry Redknapp. 

Magic Radio will also be talking to some of the service’s users who have benefitted from the incredible work the charity does. 

Penny has recently spoken out on her experience of going through menopause and the support she has received from Rod.

Loose Women panellists Ruth Langsford, Jane Moore spoke to Penny on a recent episode of the ITV show and they candidly delved into their symptoms and concerns after launching their menopause manifesto.

Penny admitted that her experience with menopause had left her with anxiety, as she explained: “My anxiety has gone through the roof.

“Where I’ve always been very patient, I feel like I’m losing grip, being able to talk to my husband is an absolute number one priority.

 “He saw me turning into a different woman. ‘Why are you behaving like that? Why are you arguing about something you would normally just brush off?’” Penny explained.
