He may not have a lot of fans wondering how sexy he looks in his hi-viz vest, but Rod Stewart certainly showed he can ‘repair it well’ as he picked up a shovel to repair potholes outside his home.
The multi-millionaire singer decided to get stuck in and repair the potholes himself as it became impossible to drive his Ferrari on his local road.
The 77-year-old veteran rock star shared videos to his Instagram of him and a team shovelling gravel from a lorry into a large number of potholes in an area of Harlow, Essex.
Rod explained he had decided to take matters into his own hands after an ambulance had a burst tire and other cars were ‘bashing their cars up’.
In a video shared to Instagram, he can be seen dressed in a tracksuit and a high-vis vest while singing and shovelling gravel, and says: ‘I’m repairing the street where I live as no-one can be bothered to do it .’
In another clip, he demonstrated the extent of the damage and added: ‘This is the state of the road near where I live in Harlow and it’s been like this for ages.
‘People are bashing their cars up. The other day, there was an ambulance with a burst tyre. My Ferrari can’t go through here at all.
‘So me and the boys thought we would come and do it ourselves. We are filling the holes while millions and millions of pounds have been spent on the M11.’
He captioned the post: ‘Working for a living, filling holes is good for the soul!’
The singer received praise from his followers for his efforts, including his daughters Kimberly and Ruby who commented with heart and clapping emojis.
One fan told the rock star not to hurt himself as he had tickets for his concert in June.
Rod released his latest album The Tears Of Hercules in 2021 which peaked at number five in the UK albums chart.
He will be embarking on a US and UK tour from June, including playing a number of shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Rod recently revealed that he had bought an apartment in Dublin 4 with his wife, POenny Lancaster, near the Aviva Stadium.
The former Faces singer already has a 10-bedroom mansion set in 46 acres in Essex, with four self-contained cottages, a walled garden, croquet lawn, pavilion and clock tower, but he says he ‘loves the pubs in Dublin’.
