Rod Stewart's fiancee Penny Lancaster is desperate to celebrate their recent engagement by recording a romantic duet with the rocker - but she fears the song would provoke a backlash from his fans.

The 34-year-old photographer has dated the ex-FACES star for five years and finally accepted his wedding proposal last month (MAR05).

And she insists now would be the perfect time to release a musical collaboration with her future husband, who already records music with her during their leisure time.

She says, "We often make music together and it's something we would both like to do.

"But I know I'd get slated for it."
