Penny Lancaster supported by proud Rod Stewart as she passes Special Constable training
Sir Rod Stewart, 77, was present and grinning proudly at the passing out ceremony, during which his 51-year-old wife Penny Lancaster was formally acknowledged as a fully trained Special Constable.The former model marched in a City of London police parade, clad in her black uniform and hat, to celebrate passing her training.Former model Penny had admitted to feeling as though her life lacked purpose following the menopause, and she was seeking a way to regain it through serving her country.She posed in her black, white and red checked uniform with a certificate of completion yesterday, confirming that her training programme was over, as she honoured the news by marching with a group of officers.Sir Rod has been fully supportive of her, proudly revealing on the Graham Norton show that she had trained for eight months and "loved" it."I backed her all the way.She says she loves giving something back, but more importantly she wants to protect the city she loves," he explained.Penny has already made her first arrest - of a man who tested positive for cannabis while driving earlier in the year - and she was able to serve the country during Queen Elizabeth II's funeral procession, too.She first got a taste for the police force when she appeared on the Channel 4 show Famous and Fighting Crime.The show sees celebrities trading in their usual day jobs to help the emergency services and walk in their shoes for the day.During the filming, she admitted to being "anxious" as she was harassed by a drug dealer who threatened to stab her.However, she was ultimately undeterred, and when her TV role ended, she applied to become a Special Constable - as a volunteer at first - to continue serving the country.No one had quite been expecting

Graham Norton deletes Twitter account after cancel culture comments, leaving fans devastated
comments he made regarding cancel culture, in which he eloquently stated it was more about ‘accountability.’Also in the highly-praised interview with Times Radio, the Eurovision broadcaster was quizzed on author JK Rowling’s views on the transgender community, but Graham simply suggested speaking to actual trans people who have experience with such matters.The BBC star received an outpouring of support for his remarks, with social media users hailing him ‘eloquent’ and ‘one of the good guys.’“In what world are you cancelled? I think the word is the wrong word. I think the word should be accountability.”Graham Norton criticises John Cleese and tells #TimesRadio that cancel culture isn’t real.@mariellaf1, Graham also seems to have received trolling from those who disagreed with what he said, just days before his Twitter account disappeared.One public figure who commended Graham for his comments was singer-songwriter Billy Bragg, who shared a clip and wrote: ‘Norton really good here on John Cleese, telling him that ‘cancel culture’ is just accountability, and JK Rowling, suggesting that the media talk directly to trans teens and their parents rather than merely amplifying the takes of a celebrity.’Harry Potter author Rowling responded, however, firing back: ‘Very much enjoying the recent spate of bearded men stepping confidently onto their soapboxes to define what a woman is and throw their support behind rape and death threats to those who dare disagree.

Graham Norton urges John Cleese to take accountability as he slams 'cancel culture' rant
John Cleese's use of it in an interview today.The BBC chat show host said it "must be hard" for the likes of the 82-year-old to perhaps tone down what they say on this day after speaking freely with no backlash for many years.The 59-year-old said: "You read a lot of articles in papers by people complaining about cancel culture and you think, in what world are you cancelled?"I'm reading your article in a newspaper, or you're doing interviews about how terrible it is to be cancelled?"Graham went on to suggest that the word should be replaced with "accountability" instead.He added to Times Radio: "John Cleese has been very public recently about complaining about what you can say and I just think it must be very hard to be a man of a certain age, who's been able to say whatever you like for years, and now suddenly, there's some accountability there.Nadia Sawalha 'very sure' she would never do Strictly after Kaye Adams"It's free speech but not consequence free."Earlier this year, the Fawlty Towers actor announced he will be fronting a documentary to find out if it's possible to create comedy without causing offence.A description about the show titled John Cleese: Cancel Me says he will "explore why a new woke generation is trying to rewrite the rules on what can and can’t be said".John has been no stranger to sharing what he deems cancel culture in recent years.Last year, he slammed BBC owned UKTV for temporarily removing an episode of Fawlty Towers.A 1975 episode titled The Germans was taken off the streaming service because it contains "racial slurs".At the time, the streaming service said it expected to reinstate the show with "extra guidance" in "the coming days".After criticism about the move from John and others, the
