Penny Lancaster, and her husband Sir Rod Stewart, were spotted leaving an exclusive member's club in London after enjoying a date on Wednesday night.
The One Show was thrown into chaos on Wednesday after guest Rod Stewart accidentally swore live on air - causing hosts Roman Kemp and Angelica Bell to issue an apology
The One Show faced chaos after Rod Stewart dropped quite the expletive live on air - causing hosts to issue an apology to viewers.
The hit BBC one show was back on TV screens on Wednesday (May 31) fronted by Roman Kemp and Anjelica Bell.
The legendary music star was joined by Boy George to talk about their iconic career and plans to tour together - and the conversation soon turned on to the topic of tour outfits.
But things took a rather awkward turn when Rod dropped a major swear bomb live on air.
Talking about his stage costumes, Rod recalled how he gets criticised for changing his outfit on stage.
He said: “I do four outfits changes, it’s show business!”
He added: “I’ve been criticised for changing outfits. Music critics, they say oh he went off to have a rest because he’s tired.
“No, I’m sweating my b****s off!” Rod fumed - throwing the BBC One show into chaos.
The two hosts straight away issued an apology to viewers watching at home.
They said: “Sorry for any language there, this is a family show.”
Looking rather awkward, the two hosts then proceeded to move on - but Rod wasn’t done with his cheeky comments.
“Congratulations, you’re a grandfather again,”
Appearing to mishear her, Rod quipped: “No not a father again.”
“I said grandfather,” Angelica replied.
To which Rod quipped: “My bananas are back in the fruit box darling.”
With laughter rerouting from the studio and guest, Roman was forced to issue yet another apology, saying: “A family show, I apologise, a family show.”
Rod then proceeded to talk about his latest additions to his family, before asking: “Can we start this show again?” as his guests laughed.
Sir Rod Stewart has announced that his proposed deal with Hipgnosis Songs is off.
After more than two years of negotiation with the company’s founder and CEO Merck Mercuriadis, Stewart has opted to retain ownership of his song catalogue, terminating its sale to Hipgnosis.
In a statement, the 78-year-old said: “This catalogue represents my life’s work,” Stewart said. “And it became abundantly clear after much time and due diligence that this was not the right company to manage my song catalogue, career or legacy.”
Sir Rod Stewart is a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and has six consecutive decades with million selling studio albums. As well as his solo work, his career in music also includes two iconic groups and the Faces Jeff Beck Group.
He has 10 solo No.1 albums in the UK, the most recent of which was 2019’s You’re In My Heart, which has 310,100 sales, according to the Official Charts Company. Released in 2021, his most recent set The Tears Of Hercules has 78,406. The star has 11 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Hipgnosis was formed in 2018 and has been rapidly growing ever since. It raised £200 million for its IPO in 2018 and its portfolio of 65,000 songs was valued at $2.7 billion last July. Recent acquisitions include Justin Bieber, TMS and Tobias Jesso Jr. It contributed to the launch of Stewart’s new website last year.
The whisky known as Wolfie's is made at Loch Lomond distillery.
After selling 250 million records worldwide Sir Rod Stewart has now launched his own whisky.
The 40% ABV blended spirit will initially be available online in the UK & across Europe.
The drink is described as peaty, warming cinnamon, fresh vanilla and baked apple and “embodies reputation as ‘the Cockney Scotsman’ and pays tribute to his Scottish heritage and cheeky chappie image.”
Wolfie’s, as it’s known, is made at the Loch Lomond distillery and has been designed to ‘reflect the singer’s rock and roll heritage.
Sir Rod said: “Wolfie’s is a rascal of a thing
and with just a sip the whisky takes you back to the good old days. Fine-tuned and perfectly balanced, Wolfie’s is a delight both over ice and mixed into a favourite
And he added: “It’s a fine tipple, whether you’re partying with friends, celebrating a Celtic win or reminiscing with family.
“For me, Wolfie’s depicts the carefree behaviour of my more mischievous days and the excitement of what life still has to offer – let the good times roll!”
Sir Rod Stewart cut a suave figure as he left the second star-studded tribute concert for Jeff Beck in London.
The singer, 78, attended the second tribute concert at the Royal Albert Hall after performing at the first on Monday in honour of the rock guitarist, who died on January 10 at the age of 78.
Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster led the stars making their way home from London's Royal Albert Hall after taking to the stage for Jeff Beck's star-studded tribute concert.
Some of the best and brightest in music descended on the capital to honour the late rocker with a stellar show, after he tragically died in January at the age of 78.
Slipping into a stylish green satin zebra print dress, Penny cut a stylish figure as she jumped into a waiting car with husband Rod after his performance during the show.
The model and mother-of-two beamed as the car sped away from the venue following the show, though she appeared to be struggling with the effects of her towering heels, discarding them on the floor of the car.
Also spotted was Eric Clapton, who cut a casual figure as he departed the concert solo,
Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, John McLaughlin, Johnny Depp, Gary Clark Jr. and many more all squeezed onstage to pay tribute to the late guitar great
Yesterday (May 22), a huge ensemble of A-list electric guitar heroes converged on London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall for the first of two Jeff Beck tribute concerts.
As previously reported, the event was a who’s who of guitar talent, with the likes of Eric Clapton, Gary Clark Jr., Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, John McLaughlin and many more all coming together to pay tribute to the late guitar great, who passed away earlier this year.
The evening itself was filled with high-profile collaborations, but the biggest of all occurred right at the end of the night when everyone – yes, everyone – squeezed onto the historic stage for an eight-minute jam of Going Down.
If ever there was a competition for the most guitar stars to feature on the same stage, this lineup would stake a strong claim, with all those mentioned above performing alongside Ronnie Wood, Billy Gibbons, Johnny Depp, Doyle Bramhall II and Kirk Hammett, who made a surprise appearance with Greeny.
Outside the guitar department, Jeff Beck band members Rhonda Smith and Anike Niles lead the rhythm section, with Rod Stewart, Imelda May, Olivia Safe and Joss Stone all assuming vocal duties.
Having that many people on stage at once was always going to be a logistical challenge – a fact made clear by the drastic level differences between each player’s guitar.
Having said that, a guitar band of almost 20 players was never going to deliver a super-polished performance of Going Down, but that was never really the goal anyway.
Instead, the participants ensured their eight-minute rendition of Going Down turned out exactly as it should have: a gloriously improvised, larger-than-life guitar jam in honor of one of the most influential guitar players of all time.
Clapton was the de facto conductor of the cover, kicking things off and then conceding the six-string spotlight to his fellow guitar-paying peers for a huge melting pot of solos.
Gary Clark Jr. – with his Gibson ES-335 in tow – took the first 12 bars, followed by a PRS-wielding John McLaughlin, and then a Telecaster-toting Depp, who spent much of last year touring and recording with Beck.
Two solos that especially cut through the mix were the closing efforts offered by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi. Trucks took the lead, utilizing his Gibson SG for yet another guitar slide masterclass, while Tedeschi went to town on her Tele for 12 bars of bend-heavy blues.
It proved to be a poignant ending to a marathon show, which had been prefaced by an emotional Clapton who told the crowd, “I wish he were here.”
The cover of Going Down was just one of numerous tracks performed by the assortment of guitar heroes in honor of Beck.
Highlights from the setlist included McLaughlin joining Smith and Niles for a cover of You Know You Know – a Mahavishnu Orchestra track that Beck played live – Depp, Hammett and Gibbons teaming up to perform Isolation, and Clapton sharing the stage with Trucks and Tedeschi for The Sky is Crying.
Baby Louie Mark Roderick Stewart was born on Friday, May 12 – and he's already got his first Hoops kit!

The 28-year-old ice hockey player and his partner Nicole Ann revealed Louie Stewart’s birth on Instagram.
Sharing a photo of the newborn wearing a Celtic shirt and hat, Liam wrote: “Welcome lad, love you. American, British, Croatian, Kiwi. Louie Mark Roderick Stewart 5.12.23.”

Sir Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster were spotted as they stepped out for breakfast in Los Angeles on Friday.
The legendary singer, 78, put on an animated display as he and the former model, 52, dined alfresco while making the most of the gorgeous weather.
Rod cut a stylish figure in a plaid shirt which he teamed with a houndstooth blazer and white skinny jeans.
Sweeping her blonde tresses into a loose ponytail she completed the look with a pair of casual sandals.
Their outing comes after Rod admitted he 'got in one or two lawsuits' from booting footballs into the crowd shows and even accidentally 'smashed a pal in the face' with a ball.
The musician, who is a Celtic super fan, frequently kicks autographed balls into the audience at gigs.
Speaking in a new interview on Wednesday, he revealed he has been forced to stop with the stunt following an incident at Hollywood Bowl last year.
Rod is currently playing a string of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, but explained how his recent gigs have been football free.
'Sometimes, I let the girls do it because they’re not going to hurt anybody. But, you know, I got one or two lawsuits,' he told Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Rod continued: 'In fact, when I got to Hollywood Bowl last year, a dear friend who came all the way over to see me got smashed in the face with a ball.
'It broke his glasses. He’s still having operations. It was very upsetting for both of us. I said, "You’ve got to keep your eye on the ball in all sports, Mate."'

Sir Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster looked loved-up on Thursday as they stepped out together in Los Angeles.
The legendary singer, 78, and the former model, 52, cut relaxed figures as they stopped for a coffee.
Rod looked laidback in pair of black Adidas trousers and a plain white T-shirt under a bright green zip-up jumper.
She showed off her eye-catching pink pedicure in a pair of intricate gold open-toe sandals.
Her long blonde tresses were left down and styled in loose waves and she opted for a light palette of make-up.
The couple were laden down with bags of shopping as they made their way to their waiting car.
A chat with Rod Stewart is like following the bouncing ball.
The subjects bound from the U.K. to Ukraine, Australia and New Zealand, to L.A. and back to the Strip, where Sir Rod has been superstar headliner for a dozen years.
It’s a soccer ball (or, football), naturally for Stewart, forever an avid backer of the Celtic Football Club of Scotland. He kicks it up on his tour dates, including his recent trips Down Under. He scores in his Colosseum shows at Caesars Palace, where he returned over the weekend and is back Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and Monday. All times 7:30 p.m.
On the horizon, the 78-year-old Stewart will keep his feet moving with a U.K. tour covering June and July, then a U.S.-Canada series starting in Reno on July 29. Then he’s bouncing to Brazil in late July through August, before returning to Caesars Palace in November.
What Stewart is not kicking, in fact, are actual soccer balls at the Colosseum. We start
with that topic with the king of the knight club at Caesars:
He’s not booting soccer balls into the audience, for now: Fracases have often broken out, at the Colosseum and on tour, for a ball signed by Stewart.
“Sometimes, I let the girls do it because they’re not going to hurt anybody. But, you know, I got one or two lawsuits,” Stewart said. “In fact, when I got to Hollywood Bowl last year, a dear friend who came all the way over to see me got smashed in the face with a ball. It broke his glasses. He’s still having operations. It was very upsetting for both of us. I said, ‘You’ve got to keep your eye on the ball in all sports, Mate.’”
He pays tribute to Ukraine in his current stage show. Stewart dons a beautiful blue-and-yellow suit, in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, for “Rhythm of My Heart,” dedicated to the war-strafed country. Stewart houses a family of refugees, and has been performing the number since last fall.
“When the war broke out, me and my two nephews had four trucks filled up with, paper products, towels, water, food, all the stuff you need,” Stewart said. “They drove from where I live in England, all the way up to the border, dropped all the stuff off. Then they brought about a thousand refugees from the border to Berlin. Then I really got involved, I rented a house around where I live and I’ve got a whole family living there. I pay their expenses. I’m just waiting for the Ukrainian offensive to stop this guy, we can’t let him win. It’s 1939, all over again.”
Stewart is supporting the family of seven for a year. He has also provided jobs for two other refugees on his estate in Essex, and might build another house so he can take in a second family.
His wife, Penny Lancaster, was on security detail at the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla. “My wife actually was working, she’s a part-time police constable,” Stewart said. “So, we know Charles quite well. She got loads of photos of her standing in line with the coronation coach.”
He says, “I love the royal family,” as one would expect. “I think it could be trimmed down a bit, but I think Charles is a lovely guy, the queen was always so nice to me, which is why I love them. I’m a knight, so of course I’m going to support them.”
He says he keeps spry by “surviving” off his band’s energy. “I love to perform, and have always kept myself fit because I’ve always played soccer,” Stewart said. “I work out three times a week to train, and I’ve been doing that over the last 35 years. I do’t smoke, I have a drink now and then, but otherwise I work the muscles in my legs. My dad said, ‘Keep your legs strong, all your life, and you’ll always be mobile.’” That’s been very important.
He’s performed more shows in Las Vegas than any other locale. Stewart noted the figure as 182 in Friday’s performance.
Asked if he ever anticipated being so closely aligned with Las Vegas, he said, “Never in a million years. I remember when Elvis was playing there, or the supper-club was eating while a show was going on. I thought, that’s not for me.”
He’s totally comfortable at the Colosseum. “I’m in what I feel is the best arena in the world to see any act,” Stewart said. “There isn’t a bad seat, the acoustics are great, it is comfortable — sometimes it’s too comfortable (laughs). But they are lovely people, and they look after me so well.”
He’s watched Vegas grow into an international destination over the course of his career. “I used to do shows there in the early ’70s, the first one with the Faces 1972 at the Convention Center. I don’t remember it — it was a band of drinkers, Mate!” Stewart said. “But I fly over the city now, and I have noticed how Vegas has spread so big, big housing developments and growth. It is an amazing place.”
Sir Rod Stewart, 78, helped granddaughter Delilah with constructing an amazing miniature village scene, complete with houses, cars, a bus, and an impressive collection of trees behind it.
Delilah, the little girl Rod's daughter Kimberly shares with Benicio del Toro, clutched the construction proudly in a snap taken by her mum, which was posted to Instagram last night.
"When granddad helps with a school project," she captioned the photo, which was shared with almost 90,000 followers on the app.
The scene appeared to have been labelled "Maryland - the old line state" in a reference to the US state known for various revolutionary battles over its history.
Liam and Nicole are set to welcome their baby boy this month and will name him after his grandfather.
Sir Rod Stewart will shortly become a grandad once again, as his son Liam Stewart and partner Nicole Artukovich prepare to welcome a baby boy this month.
The proud parents-to-be have already decided on a very special name for their first child, which is a nod to the Maggie May singer.
Liam, 28, is the son of rocker Rod and model Rachel Hunter. Rachel was Rod's second wife and they also share daughter Renee together.
Last weekend, the couple held a baby shower with friends and family in Los Angeles, with the father-to-be enjoying the festivities barefoot.
Their son will be named Louie Mark Roderick Stewart, with one of his middle names of course a tribute to his grandfather.
