Grace came to mainstream attention in the UK in 1981 when she appeared as a guest on Russell Harty's chat show. Feeling ignored by the host, she first complained and then resorted to slapping him around the face live on air. It was later voted the most shocking chat show moment of all time in a UKTV Gold poll. This photo of Grace messing about with champion boxer John Conteh was taken the following day, presumably to make light of the incident.
