Penny Lancaster revealed she uses crutches after suffering a knee injury.
The model was seen arriving on crutches to promote Gary Horner’s book in London on Tuesday, prompting questions about the nature of her injury.
“Penny has torn the meniscus in her right knee,” her spokesperson explained to the Daily Mail’s Richard Eden.
“The cause of the injury is unknown; nor is treatment at this stage. The injury is believed to have been sustained overseas and is not related to her activities as a special constable.’
Rod didn’t join his wife at Geri Halliwell-Horner’s latest children’s book launch party Rosie Frost and the Falcon Queen, at the Tower of London.
