He's over 2 inches shorter next to 6'2- 6'2.5 Richard madeley on the celebrity Antiques Road trip it was repeated on yesterday channel on TV the other day , so he's not quite 6'1

How Tall would you guess British tennis Player Johanna Konta is ?, I have seen her listed as 5'11 and she does look at least 2 Inches shorter than Venus, About the Charles Hanson picture that someone mentioned of him next to Johanna Konta during the Eastbourne tournament last year and looked barely taller, lets say Konta's height is 5'10.5 he is less than 2 inches shorter than her I am struggling to see anything over 6'0 for Charles, next to Richard Madley who is 6'2 he was a good 2 inches shorter, I think Charles was just overinflating his height on that antiques road trip or was does not have a clue what he really is because I can not see how he is anywhere near the height he asserted he was on TV ?

I would say Charles is between 183cm ( 6'0) and 184 cm (6'0.5) , i don´t buy him being 188cm ( 6'2) Dan Snow who was on antiques road trip celebrity version episode is on YouTube Dan Snow is no less than 2 meters, just watched him on the Boat race with Steve Redgrave who is least 6'4.5 and he is at least 2 inches taller . He is just a Giant and if you compare Charles to him on that 2011 antiques programme i see him being 17 or 18 cms taller than Charles , 183-184cm for Charles is right on spot not the right listing

I think Charles is 6'1 no taller, I say that because on a charity auction photo from 2015 with david couthard ex f1 driver he looked a fraction taller and david couthard is listed at 5"11.75 so I think your listing is very near to precise Charles has claimed this height and also 6'2 so I think 6'1 for Charlie Hanson his lean frame can make him look 6'3 !

Anton Du Beke height has always been listed at 5ft 11 in the ballroom world and he's always got one inch on Tess Daily on strictly come dancing . In that celebrity antiques road trip episode from 2012 which is on YouTube Charles has a good 2.5 inches sometimes 3inches on Anton Du Beke. But for argument sake let's say they were both wearing large heeled footwear, you can still see clearly Charles had to be at least 6ft 1 to Anton Du Beke's height listing he has himself said 6ft which seems a stretch so I am saying it is a virtual certainty he is at least 6ft 1.5 Otherwise as Tejaswi asserted if Charles hanson is 5ft 11 the same height of Johanna Konta then Anton Du Beke would only be only 5ft 8 or 5ft 9 ins which we know he is not.

charles is certainly 6'1 I met him very recently I am 6'2 with footwear on, and he was the same height no taller, so he is not any taller than 6'1 with footwear on, he seemed to be wearing very low healed footwear like me, considering he even not standing up straight was easily taller than Anton du beke so i fell to understand how anyone can assert on here he is only 6'0 or even 5'11 rob is usually plus or minis half and inch or an inch so I will not agree with 6'2 but 6'1 for sure is right for Charles a lovely down to earth guy very knowledgeable about antiques

hi rob i think Some put across a very strong case about Charles Hanson being only 6 feet . Anton Du beke is 5ft 11 ins tall and he looks like he does next Johanna konta who is also 5ft 11 ins very similarI would say based on this I am just convinced rob Charles must be shorter than your 185cm listing even though you think he claimed it on TV ,

I met this gentleman recently I am 6'1 without my shoes o I cannot remember what Charles had on footwear wise but what i will say that he was eye to eye with me Charles was for sure taller than 5'11 or even 6'0 I am sure he was 6'1, i am certainly of the view that he was over 6 barefoot, That picture of him that someone mentioned of him next to Johanna Konta tennis player during the Eastbourne tournament last year who is listed at 5'11 and looked barely taller, will have to looked at, maybe konta is taller 5'11 or Charles was not standing up straight or standing away from the camera or something or she was heels , he looks taller than men who are average height on those antique shows , he never appears to wear large heeled footwear to give him a bigger appearance, the 6'2 claim is probably in footwear

Every picture and tv shot is like an optical illusion sometimes he looks
average height sometimes he looks 6 2, i think he was 6 1 1/2 without footwear my opinion

I've been watching him on a repeated celebrity antiques roadtrip from 2012 Rob with Dan Snow who is 6'6 5'11" maximum. . if you imagine picture of yourself Rob with Brandon Routh. There's 6.5 inches between you two . If you watch the episode of Charles Hanson beside Dan Snow There's at least the same difference between them (6.5 inches) if not more. Hanson is barely up to Dan snow's chin. That would make Hanson 5'11". If he's even that. Looks a very average height to me. If that perspn 5'11" maximum. Ramsay at 6'2" is just silly
Look at the picture of Rob with Brandon Routh. Click Here There's 6.5 inches between the two men.
Now look at the picture of Ramsay beside Van der Sar. Click Here There's at least the same difference between them (6.5 inches) if not more. Ramsay is barely up to Van der Sar's chin. That would make Ramsay 5'11". If he's even that. Looks a very average height to me. If that person said he was similar to 5'11 konta then that would make logical sense, Charles doesn't look over 6'0" to me. I really think rob you downgrade him to 6'0.

Rob, hope you are well its been a good while. I saw Gordon up close recently in Sydney as we have a mutual friend ( hes a young well known chef)...
Anyhow, I met him in person, in London filming a bargain hunt , shook his and as you know Im 185-186cm, he was definitely slightly shorter than me.Probably closer to 6ft even

editor rob Charles Hanson has claimed on TV he is 6ft 1 I afraid I cannot upload this photo as the newspaper has some sort of copy paste block . There is a picture of him next to Johanna Konta tennis player I think it was during the Eastbourne tournament last year who is listed at 5'11 he looked barely taller, I seriously doubt he is 6'1 he looks there 6'0 flat ! what is strange he looks so much taller than men who are average height or slightly above average on those antique shows , he must wear large heeled footwear to give him a bigger appearance, I think he I s6'0 so how tall do you think he is ?
said on 26/Jan/17
hi rob do you think 6'0.5 could be height, on that show you said he quoted his height was antiques roadtrip, it is on youtube, he said 6'1 or thereabouts that implies he is not the full 6'1 ?
Editor Rob: Mike, I think about 6ft 1 is ok for big Charles...he typically could look nearer 6ft 1 than say a flat 6ft. Jonathan Pratt once claimed to be almost 5ft 11.

When I Charles Hanson at his auction when he was valuing some items before Christmas he was eye to eye with me and I am 6ft 1.5 ins without any footwear , however he was wearing quite big heeled footwear so I would 6'0.5 to 6'1 not 6'2.

i met this antiques expert charles hanson at his auction house in derby i am 5 feet 11 with my shoes on and was eye to eye with him charles is not even 6ft

I'm happy with 6'1" for Charles, he did claim this on tv while measuring furniture. Yes, six one, or as he would say it, "six wonn".
Seems an affable guy too.

I am 5'11.5 tall and I think he was about an inch taller than me no more 6'0.5 quite a lean man makes him look bigger

rob could he be more than 6ft 1 my daughter met him recently at her sixth form college she said she was surprised how much taller he looked in real life than on those antiques shows she said he was around 6ft2 or 6ft3 the same height as one of her teachers, I would thought 6ft 1 he is quite a lean man so maybe looks taller than he does?
Editor Rob: Amy, he did claim 6ft 1 and from watching the show I'd have said that was his height.
