Penny Lancaster has revealed she helped to save a suicidal person on a bridge while working as a special constable.
The wife of rock star Sir Rod Stewart shared earlier this year that she had completed the course to become a volunteer police officer.
She has now been out on several shifts on foot patrol in London and, on one, helped to save someone she said was “pretty desperate”.

Lancaster, 50, said on Good Morning Britain: “When you think of policing, you think of the most violent crimes but in fact we’re out there to help the most vulnerable.
“At this particular time there’s a lot of instances on the bridges and I did help assist someone who was pretty desperate on the bridge the other night. It can be rewarding in so many ways.”
“You saved a life Penny, didn’t you?” asked host Susanna Reid.
The TV star replied: “That’s what policing does.
“So we’ve got to look after the police and make sure when their lives are taken, punishment is given.”

Lancaster was inspired to sign up to be a special constable after taking part in Channel 4 reality show Famous And Fighting Crime in 2019 and experiencing what it was like to be a volunteer with the Cambridgeshire Police.
The model - who is mother to sons Alastair, 15, and Aiden, 10, with Sir Rod – has previously said that in policing she feels she has found her calling.
Discussing Famous And Fighting Crime last year, she said: “It was terrifying, terrifying.
"But I never felt more comfortable in a position and I felt like this was where I was supposed to be.”
