FRASIER star Kelsey Grammer gave ELLEN DeGENERES an unusual surprise on her chat show yesterday morning (10NOV03) - by standing on his head for the sake of it.

The 48-year-old actor sat though an interview with the comedienne before getting out of his seat to show off his balancing trick.

Before removing his spectacles and getting on the floor, Grammer explained, "They asked me (to do) this in the pre-interview. They said, 'Do you do anything different?' The only thing I could thing of was a headstand. So here we go..."

DeGeneres added, "If Kelsey Grammer says he's gonna stand on his head, I'm gonna say, 'Do it!'"
