The MasterChef critic, 49, took to Instagram on Saturday to pay her tribute as she shared a childhood photo of the pair, along with a floral tribute from his funeral.

In her caption, she wrote: “Well Dad. You pick your moments. In fairness I hated Christmas. All those people who showed up in ‘When You Wanted to Watch the Porridge Christmas Special with a glass of table Lidl vin de and fruit and nuts. ‘”

Now you’re in heaven with my mom, teletext, finding a full 10 days or pounding buds for Jonah Lowe with a turkey that’s too big for the oven.

Thank you for fixing my skates and teaching me the value of a reward ❤️ I will always, on some level, have you under your arm in 1978, watching Kenny Everett. #ynwa. “

In 2020, she wrote in The Guardian about his battle with dementia: ‘There’s so much I want to say to my dad, but I just can’t bring myself to do it.

“Dementia is really embarrassing, not only is it painful and scary and embarrassing, and I don’t like being left alone with my dad.

But sometimes I can see the horror in his eyes. Sometimes, as Dad speaks in the present, in the middle of a nonsensical sentence, his brain catches up, and at that time, it understands the utter cynicism of what he’s saying, and pure shame runs across his face.

It comes after Grace spoke about the moment she and her partner were turned away from an exclusive restaurant in London for “violating” the formal dress code.

The presenter and author made an embarrassing confession while appearing on Amanda Wakeley’s Style DNA podcast.

The designer told Amanda, 60, that she recently wanted to dine at Asian restaurant Sexy Fish in Mayfair.

However, Grace and her partner—whom she never named—were turned away at the door thanks to his expensive but casual clothes, which included ‘£450 worth of fire trousers’.

She explained: ‘I was with my partner and I was in Mayfair […] And we were walking past [the restaurant] sexy fish.

And my partner was wearing these silly pants he got about £450 and they’re fire retardant. And they are very stupid.

Describing how she was never too fond of his mop pants, she added, “He says they’ll last forever and I’m like, ‘I know’!”

So we come to the door of Sexy Fish and I say, shall we just have a cocktail? […] And they wouldn’t let us in because he was wearing his £450 fire-resistant pants.

Excuse me!  It comes after Grace opened up about the frightening moment she and her partner were banished from an exclusive restaurant in London.
