Penny Lancaster has revealed she suffered a knee injury while she on tour with her husband, Sir Rod Stewart.

The 52-year-old former model said she has a torn meniscus, which was aggravated by activity while in Brazil with the singer.

Lancaster told the PA news agency she had an “initial torn meniscus” which has affected the bone above her knee due to “activity while away on tour” with Sir Rod in Brazil.

Her representative added: “The cause of the injury is not known, nor at this stage, is the treatment. This will be decided at a later date.”

They also clarified that the injury was “not connected” with her activities as a special constable for City of London Police.

Lancaster began volunteering with the force after appearing in Channel 4 show Famous And Fighting Crime, in which celebrities swapped their day jobs with those of emergency service professionals.

She later completed her training to become a special constable in April 2021.

In September 2022, Lancaster took to the streets of central London as part of the force policing the Queen’s funeral procession.
