ROD Stewart’s LA mansion is a sight to see and it spares no expense as it goes on the market for $70 million. 

For over 50 years, the London-born-and-raised Sir Rod Stewart's distinctive raspy voice and charismatic stage presence have made him a beloved and very successful artist.

 Rod, whose dad was Scottish, has all-time classic songs including Mandolin Wind, Tonight’s the Night, Forever Young, and Maggie May which have provided a soundtrack to generations from baby boomers to Generation Z. 

As popular in the United States as he is in Britain, Rod is still rockin audiences everywhere, especially in his ongoing Las Vegas show that began in 2011 and starts up again in November.  

 One of music’s biggest stars, Rod’s home is also big with 13 bedrooms and 28,500 square feet on over three acres of prime Los Angeles North Beverly Park turf.

 A bit flamboyant, just like the owner, the home has a striking yellow exterior,  a large Las Vegas-style fountain and ornate double doors that welcome visitors to the home’s grand foyer.

 The first floor has two sitting rooms with intricate moldings, traditionally decorated and filled with Old World treasures. 

There is a gourmet kitchen next to the tea room and the den with fireplaces and loggias, a wine room, an exquisite dining room that seats 20, a bar that rivals the best of the European taverns with a large mirror and several oil-painted Renaissance nudes, French doors that lead to the covered loggia, manicured grounds, a wood-paneled library, wood-inlay floors, and in case one bar isn’t enough there is also a green speakeasy perfect for a nightcap – perhaps following a Rod Stewart concert. There is also a 4,500-square-foot guesthouse.

A double staircase leads to the private quarters including the primary bedroom suite with dual bathrooms – one is pink and the other is green.

 There are extra-large closets to hold Rod’s huge shoe collection. Covered terraces that overlook one of LA’s best pools and luscious grounds with city and canyon views. Rod is a huge soccer fan - he was a serious player well into his 60s – so, of course, there is a soccer field. The home is currently for sale at $70 million.

Stewart originally acquired the vacant lot in 1991 for just over $12 million and then hired architect-to-the-stars Richard Landry to build the home. In addition to Stewart, Landry has designed homes for Tom Brady, Sylvester Stallone, Michael Bolton, Kenny G, and Wayne Gretzky.

North Beverly Park is LA’s most exclusive neighborhood with extra-large estates and immaculate landscaping located just north of Beverly Hills, developed in the 1980s for the world’s richest people. Current and former celebrity owners include Adele, Mark Warburg, Denzel Washington and Magic Johnson. The entire neighborhood is gated with 24/7 guards.

Rod has sold over 120 million records worldwide and received numerous accolades, including induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, both as a solo artist and as a member of the band Faces. He has explored various musical genres, including rock, folk, pop, and soul, showcasing his versatility as an artist. Apart from his successful solo career, he has also collaborated with other musicians and bands, such as The Faces and The Jeff Beck Group.

ROSS Kemp’s hit BBC One daytime quiz show Bridge of Lies is returning to Glasgow for a third series, and the primetime celebrity series will also be back for series two.


The new celebrity episodes (8x45) will air in primetime, while regular episodes (25x45) of theSTV Studios-produced show will follow on BBC One Daytime, both filmed in Glasgow’s Kelvin Hall and coming in 2024.


Host Ross Kemp said: “I’m overwhelmed at the response we’ve had from audiences for this show. It’s great for all the family to get involved in, both in the day and on Saturday evenings. Hosting Bridge of Lies, with all its jeopardy, tension and hilarious moments, is one of the most enjoyable parts of my year, so I’m delighted it’s been recommissioned by the BBC and can’t wait to get back filming in Glasgow.”

Theshowbizlion.com has met former Eastenders star Ross during his previous visits to Glasgow - going back as far as one of his guest appearances at the now defunct Privilege nightclub, formerly Bonkers, and we hope to catch him once again when he arrives here. 


Rob Unsworth, Head of BBC Daytime comments: “Bridge of Lies has been a real hit with Daytime audiences, so I’m delighted to be bringing it back for a third series. It’s a unique and winning format, and Ross does a brilliant job making contestants feel at ease when they’re under pressure. I know viewers will be as excited as I am to see it return.”


Bridge of Lies sees teams of contestants competing for cash by crossing a bridge made up of stepping stones across the studio floor. Each stepping stone has a different option, and the players must try to get from A to B by stepping on the truths and avoiding the lies, or risk falling off the bridge and out of the game. Series three is currently looking for contestants to take part*.


Gary Chippington, Creative Director of Entertainment at STV Studios, says: “We are so proud of this show. It’s gone from strength to strength and we were delighted by the reaction to the latest series and celebrity specials from audiences and critics alike. Our wonderful host, Ross Kemp, plays a huge part in the show’s success, and we’re looking forward to being back in the Glasgow studio with him, some brilliant new contestants and our fantastic production team later this year.”


The first series of Celebrity Bridge of Lies featured teams of soap actors, pop icons, comedians, radio broadcasters, Strictly stars, sporting legends, TV presenters, and some of the most memorable queens from Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK.
