Grace Jones kicked off Chunnel train
Actress Grace Jones has denied attacking a Eurostar train manager in an argument over a ticket upgrade.
Eurostar accused the singer and star of Bond film A View to a Kill of grabbing the manager's arm and verbally abusing her in the row on Tuesday.
But the star's manager said there were "words" between the pair but "definitely no physical confrontation".
<> Eurostar said Jones was thrown off the Paris to London train at Ashford, Kent. Jones said she asked to be let off. She left the train after British Transport Police were called and the service was delayed for 15 minutes.
Eurostar said the row erupted because Jones, 56, had a first class ticket but refused to pay extra after sitting in the premium area.
A statement from the performer said: "Ms Jones was extremely badly treated last night by an overzealous Eurostar employee after she was asked to leave the VIP section of the train."
