Rod's easy to please at Christmas, says Penny

Veteran rocker Rod Stewart is easy to buy Christmas presents for according to his wife.

Penny Lancaster said the multi-millionaire star wants nothing more than a pair of socks and some kit for his model railway under the Christmas tree.

She told Hello! Magazine: "There's Rod the rock star who gets up on the stage and sings.

"And there's the Rod I'm married to, the very funny, very loving, family man who just loves being surrounded by the people he loves and those who love him.

"Rod is easy to please. He never really wants anything, the things he likes are very simple luxuries: really good brushes for his model railway hobby and cashmere socks which he loves to wear in bed and on planes."

The couple, who have two sons Alastair and Aiden, will spend Christmas in their Essex mansion -- a far cry from the singer's childhood.

The former Faces frontman said: "There are a few more shillings about now. However, my childhood memories of Christmas are full of joy."
