Penny Dropped

‘KEEN readers of Anorak will know what fans of Penny Lancaster – photographer, girlfriend to Rod Stewart and occasional underwear model – we are.

‘And this is my flash’

And if we allow ourselves a little smile at this morning’s news that the 32-year-old blonde has been dropped as the face, tits and arse of lingerie giant Ultimo, it is only because we know that the decision will allow her to spend more time on the other side of the camera.

The Sun says Ultimo took the decision not to renew her £200,000 contract “because she is hardly recognised outside the UK”.

“Penny has got the company some great publicity in the past year,” a source told the paper.

“But we felt we needed someone who has a bigger international profile. Penny is a very sexy girl, but isn’t known outside England.”

Isn’t known AS A MODEL outside England, we think you mean. Her photography is deservedly celebrated in every corner of the globe.’
