Penny Lancaster believes  in “the hunter gatherer, the macho man, looking after the family, although she firmly endorses “equal rights.”

The 44-year old model and wife of singer Rod Stewart was speaking as a panellist on the ITV programme Loose Women when she revealed that she was "a bit old fashioned."

“I do agree with equal rights and if women want to go and work that’s fabulous,” she said. Moreover, she believed that “cooking and putting the apron on” took away men’s masculinity “and I would miss that.”

“We’re different. Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, testosterone, oestrogen, we’re different creatures, I think you’ve got to let men do it their way.”
