Famous and Fighting Crime

Famous and Fighting Crime

Series 1 - Episode 1



Oh, how we love to see celebrities being forced out of their comfort zone. But rather than cooking or dancing or surviving in the jungle, these five familiar faces are out on the streets working as volunteer police officers. It’s a heck of a shock for Penny Lancaster, who’s used to a privileged and protected lifestyle, to chase after a shoplifter who threatens to stab her, while Jamie Laing admits he’s “chuffed” to apprehend a violent suspect.

Perhaps the bravest is Katie Piper who, having suffered an acid attack 11 years ago, is called out to help arrest a very large, abusive and volatile man, who has thumped his partner.


TV presenter and model Katie Piper, Loose Women panellist Penny Lancaster, Made in Chelsea's Jamie Laing, Gogglebox's Sandi Bogle and comedian Marcus Brigstocke volunteer as special constables with Cambridgeshire police force. In the first edition, the gruelling first-day training forces Penny to confront demons from her past and serves as a rude awakening to everyone else of the dangers they're about to face.
