Declan Donnelly's Height
5ft 5.5in (166 cm)
British actor and TV Presenter of shows such as Britain's Got Talent, I'm a Celebrity and Saturday Night Takeaway.
@Kat_Thom13: dec- having a debate with a colleague in work- how tall are you?" 6 foot ish..... oh alright! 5'6" Dx
I'm 6ft 1, but @antanddec insist all stars on their show pretend to be as small as them.
- Piers Morgan
I'm actually 5'9 and I often wear heels which make me 6ft. Celebrities you meet are often small, like Ant and Dec. They are tiny, especially Dec. I was on SM:tv live once and I did this sketch where I had to stand up so I towered above him. I quite like men being tall. All my friends are really tall too.

Rob, Take a closer look at this. Donelly is only 163-164cm nothing above. 5'4.25
Peter crouch shoulder tip is max 6cm higher than donelly top of head. 38-39cm between them
Look 5'4 with Big Peter. If Donelly hit 5'5.5 no way Peter Crouch is under 6'8.5

Rob is it possible he's nearer 5ft 5 flat? I think he consistently looks about 3 inches shorter than Ant.
Editor Rob: cd, I wouldn't go for a flat 5ft 5, but 5ft 5.25 is definitely quite possible, at times he can look nearly 3 inches shy of Ant, although I feel Ant wears his hair in a fashion which adds a bit more.

Perhaps rob should explain why peter crouch look 6'9 with Declan Donnelly. I have check on the picture they stand next together while peter crouch loose down abit but his shoulder height look to be 2.5" taller than Declan Donnelly. First of all i thought of Declan Donnelly is only 5'4 and Ant Mcpartlin 5'7.5 not tall as rob and simon cowell just 5'8 and that makes right whom i think of crouch being 6'8 easily

Most likely 5ft 6.5 is a shoe height. I don't think many people would really measure themselves out of bed.
Lee said on 4/Dec/15
Haha just watched I'm a celebrity ant asks Dec how big he is and he says five foot six. Then goes silent for a second before adding and a half. Before ant adds its very important that half. Think that's his height first thing in the morning. Just sounds so desperate

This is the first year I've not watched I'm a Celebrity. Don't watch Celeb Big Brother anymore. They used to be good but nowadays they're mostly all Z listers looking to become famous or regain their "fame". This always looked spot on, You could see with Jordan that he's not under this.

Saw an article saying "he is just 5ft 3"!

Alfonso is 5'5.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/13
Rob he looks a bit taller than Alfonso Ribeiro on I'm a Celb and he had on thicker boots...

Rob, just wondering if you've got a view on Ant ?, for me 5ft8 is a definite stretch.
[Editor Rob: I think 5ft 8 is ok, I gave him a page on here recently.]
Bran said on 1/Aug/13
You'd be surprised, Ant isn't 5'8, he doesn't appear 2.5 inches taller than Dec and also looks smaller than all the one direction lads and Peter Andre, He's not 5'8, Dec makes him look tall.
Gaz said on 27/May/13
I think that is about right
Arch Stanton said on 30/Nov/12
Been watching them recently and I believe 5'5.5" for Dec and 5'8" is near what they are. Ant has close to three inches on Dec. But the odd thing is that Peter Andre had an inch on Ant and actually looked his claimed 5'9" when he was on the show!!
laurap said on 20/Oct/12
I've met Dec quite a few times, and he is 5ft 6 for sure!
ryan said on 21/Dec/11
if ant is ment to be 5'8 then dec is a clear 5'5 max
Shaun said on 17/Nov/11
If Dec is 5'5.5" Ant has to be close to 5'9", he always looks easily 3 inches taller.
DPD68 said on 22/Jul/11
His shoe size is 6.5UK, just to correct another post
Shaun said on 10/Jun/11
Its odd. I had Dec estimated as between 5'5" and 5'6" as you have him here and I had Ant pegged as virtually 3 inches taller at 5'8". However, Peter Andre I'm sure looked about an inch taller than Ant, so I remember thinking although he could often look 5'7", Andre must be 5'9" range as he claimed. Only we now know that he isn't above 5'8". If Dec was say 5'5" flat and Ant 5'7.5" and Andre 5'8.5" dunno. Dec I have to say did look about 2 inches taller than a barefoot Jordan in I'm a Celebrity so I doubt he is 5'5" flat. Is there a youtube clip of Andre in the jungle or something? It just I remember watching it and thinking how Andre appeared much taller than I had previously thought and looked like an average height guy.
said on 6/Jun/11
Ant was shorter than Peter Andre by a good inch I think. I had Ant pegged at 5'8". Now not to sure as Andre is a weak 5'82 himself.
[Editor Rob: the andre measurements, one of them was off.
the guy doing it said 5ft 8.5 but then he had converse so you think he is just about 5ft 8, then without them he said 5ft 7.5...converse never give an inch!]
Shaun said on 6/Jun/11
Well, if he is 5'5.5", then Jordan is 5'4" flat.
James said on 4/Jun/11
Leave weight out of it. There's enough celeb weight gossip already!
Dean 5ft 9.25
said on 4/Jun/11
So how tall would you peg him at rob? what kinda range? 172-174cm? if he was listed on this site what would you put him down as? cheers
[Editor Rob: 173cm does seem fair enough.]
Dean 5 ft 9.25
said on 31/May/11
Rob how tall would you peg ant at? hes a hard one to pin down! Standing next to 5'5 dec I'd peg him 5'8.5 174cm as he looks a solid 3 inch taller. What do you think as your the expert? cheers lol
[Editor Rob: sometimes he can look 3 inches taller, sometimes not quite. I'm not sure he looks 3.5 inches taller though.]
DrJJ said on 12/Apr/11
Rob, please look in today's Sun, online version, article about Britain's Got Talent. Posed picture of the two with around 4" difference (at least). You cannot have it both ways. Either Dec is closer to 5'3" or Ant must be close to 5'10" (if Dec is as listed). Which is ridiculous. A downgrade please, especially as it is inevitable they will be pictured with Bieber and we could all get the wrong inpression!

He looks about this height. He is a size 8 shoe, someone won his old football boots on one of their shows and his size was mentioned. He also said on the Jonathan Ross show a few years ago that he was 5'6.5" tall but I don't believe that, he looks 1.67m not 1.69m. Ant looks 1.72m.
Jack said on 19/Feb/11
5'6'' is impossible, Dec is between 5'4.5'' to 5'5'' max. Ant is 5'6'' to 5'7'' max.
kat00000 said on 16/Dec/10
I have met Ant in a pub in york and he was the same height as me I'm 5'6" and I was in ballet pumps so Dec has got to be at least 3" shorter!!!!
paul said on 13/Oct/07
Im starting to think Dec is 5'6 and ant is 5'8.5
Ellie ! said on 13/Oct/07
It's amazing to see how so many people can get them mixed up! They look a bit similar but I could never mistake Ant for Dec, or the other way around...Who remembers that time on Saturday Night Takeaway when they did a survey to see how many people got mixed up?
Ellie said on 16/Jun/07
Well all I can establish is that you can clearly distinguish and comprehend the obvious height difference between Ant and Dec - Ant is clearly at least 2 inches taller than Dec. Dec is at maximum 5'6, which makes Ant at maximum 5'8 -the same height as me. I also notice on their TV programmes (latest, Bitains Got Talent), Dec wears very clumpy shoes which make the height difference less noticable, but he is still always shorter than Ant - so raising the theory either Dec is shorter than 5'6, or Ant is taller than 5'8.
gap-uk said on 12/Jun/07
I've met Ant & Dec a couple of times and Dec is exactly the same size as me, 5'6. Ant is an inch or two taller, that's it.
Rastus said on 16/Mar/07
I'm not sure that he's even this height. Wherever you see the two of them, they always look like midgets beside other people. Plus, their shoes are always, always big chunky efforts with 2" heels. AND Ant (5'7" max) is taller than Dec. Dec is lucky to make 5'5".

Hang on, you have Ant standing at 5'6", and he's clearly three inches taller than Dec.
[Editor Rob: the ANT is a different one, an american guy on celeb fitness, not anthony mcpartlin]
TJ said on 17/Apr/06
I thought he looked much more than 5 inches shorter than Ross. I'd go with 5'6.
Editor Rob said on 15/Apr/06
Described in an article today (daily mail) as 5ft 3. That's being harsh!
jon said on 31/Mar/06
claimed he was 5ft6.5 on the johnathan ross show. he get compared to john and really only seemed a max of 5 inches shorter. Was quite wierd as ross says hes 6ft1.5
[Editor Rob: he's claiming an extra 1/2 inch now, I don't blame him...]

Richard Hammond (he's not getting his own page), UK Top Gear presenter says : "I'll have you know I'm not actually that short. I'm 5ft 7ins, which is a fairly normal height. It's just that I have to stand next to giant Jeremy, who's about 8ft tall"
British Guy said on 23/Jun/05
Now What A Guy!!
Isn't It Funny? I Always Thought That
This Guy Was About 5ft 10in, Reall Weird...
I Personally Prefer The Little Guy Over Ant...

There is nothing wrong with Declan's height. He's a lovely person, in a small package, but that package is perfect! I know Dec, he's nearly my next door neighbour and he's a right little star! love him to bits!
