Despite being one of television’s most popular personalities, Tracy Grimshaw likes to keep out of the spotlight when she’s not on the air.
So when the A Current Affair host caught paparazzi trying to take makeup-free photos of her at her property in Sydney’s northwest, she decided to beat them at their own game.
The 58-year-old took to Instagram sharing two less-than-glamourous selfies, lashing out at the snappers by blasting: ‘I’ll buy a selfie stick so next time I can give you full length’.

In the photos Tracy was clad in a comfy fleece which was covered in horse hair.
The veteran journalist explained she was hard at work in her backyard at the time she took her photos.
‘Paps are in my street again so here’s a free shot of what they’re after: without make up or hair done, looking unkempt and flushed from working, preferably with #restingbitchface’ she wrote in her caption.

Tracy went on to say that her ‘work clothes’ were ‘covered in furkid hair, and maybe some horse snot thrown in’.
The outfit was far less glitzy than the one she wore at the Logie Awards earlier this month, where she was the belle of the ball.
Named as one of the event’s ‘Best Dressed’, the Channel Nine star dazzled in an eye-catching kaftan.

Tracy was nominated for the coveted Gold Logie Award, but lost out to Grant Denyer in a shock upset.
However, bookies are now betting the TV queen will be snap up the award in 2019.
Sportsbet currently has the A Current Affair host at $4.00 odds for next year, ahead of Jessica Marais and The Bachelor’s Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins.
