Help! Broken off bolt head in shower control plate - how to remove?

Hello experts!
Broken off bolt head on one of the bolts that hold shower place to the wall.
Did not notice that bolt was too long and hit back part of the shower valve and snapped off near head. There is about an inch of the bolt to grab on but it does not give when I tried with pliers. It looks like it is torqued against the back piece of the valve... How do remove it? Thank you!

Welcome to the forums.

A pair of Vice Grips would probably do the trick.
