In today’s Classic EastEnders, we learn that Mark can’t get anymore help for his HIV. Having had a beer flavoured booze-up with Adam Woodyatt’s Ian, we see him in a good mood. Then when he’s told the bad news, he still doesn’t give up, hoping that alternative treatments might help him.

I think Todd Carty might be 5ft10.5. He played Mark Folwer, and also Tucker in Grange Hill, which I used to watch when I returned from school, aged 17/18.

Two-faced beast, kicking Laura out on Christmas Day. She made a mistake while drunk, but SO DID HE, multiple times.

5ft8.75. 👅

You stupid boy to fall for kissing Janine again. How are you going to explain that to your son, who walked in on the scene?
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/23
Urghhh! How could he buy favours from Janine, who is now working as a prostitute?

It won’t be long before this faux pas becomes public knowledge. I pity poor Laura.

Ian’s just been given his second bog wash, the first one coming courtesy of Phil, and yes, he did squeal! 🚽

It makes me wonder if this was his regular method of having his hair washed when he was a kid. Oh, and were the toilets used actually flushed first? 🤓

Ian’s boyhood nickname was (Little) Squeal Beale! Not terribly flattering, eh?

Just as well he grew to a standard 5ft9…..

In my comment from February last, I wrote, 'Not so funny if it was real life, but it isn't, so I'll go ahead with it anyway....'

Well, some ten months later, Adam is on 'I'm A Celebrity - Get Me Out Of Here', which most certainly IS real life, and he is well worth watching. I'd seen him in a celebrity edition of the 'Weakest Link', and observed that he was a good sport in that, not to mention humorous, so I was expecting much the same in this - AND he pulled his weight with the chores!

As I've been writing this, Adam and Matty Lee have been voted off. We're seeing both guys' highlights, which I don't half appreciate because I have missed quite a few of the daily offerings.

As we see Adam walking out of camp with Matty, who I've read is 5ft10, there is a notable difference. It looks a bit more than an inch, so I'm giving Adam 5ft8.75.

Well done to Messrs. Woodyatt and Lee!

Stop overworking Pauline's little Irish niece, Mary, the way you do, Ian, or I'll get Phil to give you another bog wash! 🚽👅

In the Classic version of EastEnders, which goes back to 1996, some young male squatters have moved into Ian Beale's house! They are drinking and smoking and making a right mess of the place! Any more of this and the walls will be nicotine-stained and the curtains will reek of beer! The real joke is the look on Ian's face, and he hasn't even seen the state of the place yet!

Adam's Christmas Day Santa smashing outburst was positively funny. The reasons behind it were anything but.

5ft8.5 🎅🎅🎅🏏

I was surprised to see he's exactly the same height as Nick Berry. I'm watching EastEnders episodes from 1990 and Nick Berry always seems a bit taller than Adam. Nick's character Simon usually wears those casual loafer shoes with a fairly thin sole and heel whereas Adam's character Ian usually wears trainers, so I'd say Adam had the slight footwear advantage, but still looks shorter than Nick. If they're both 5ft 9in maybe it's something to do with camera angles that Adam looks shorter.
Editor Rob
maybe posture for a guy like Adam isn't as good, either that or he may fall under 5ft 9

Rob he must be more than 12 stone 4 now?
Editor Rob
That is probably a weight from 20 years ago.

It's such a pleasure to be able to watch 'Classic EastEnders' every day now, on the Freeview 'Drama' Channel. What a brilliant idea that was!

We see little 'Ian Beale' right from the beginning of the show, and unlike the girls who seem pretty mature and almost if not completely fully grown then, when you compare the young Adam/Ian, you see he is definitely way below the height he is today. In fact, I would say that he's still very much a little lad back then, as is so often the case with boys! Yet Ian knows his own mind and stands up to his parents, especially his father, who are stupidly unkind to him because he wants a career in the catering trade. Well, little does his Dad know that he grows up to be a real success and a credit to them. Also, he achieves a height of an average 5ft9!

That's what Adam gets today. 😁👍

He looks tall stood next to danny dyer in some scenes.
James B said on 17/Aug/17
Probably 5'8.5 back in 1996 and 5'8-5'8.25 now
James B said on 10/Aug/17
Rob he doesn't exactly look 5'9 here with 5'7.75 Steve McFadden and 6'1 Michael French back in 1996 does he? Click Here

I would have guessed more 5'8 for him there
Editor Rob
he is a guy who could look 5ft 8-9 range, maybe it is possible he isn't much over 5ft 8.
James B said on 22/Mar/17
Rob on eastenders he is often called 'a horrible little man'
Editor Rob
that's a bit rude!

I'm going to cancel my TV license this minute!

He barely looks 5"8....

5'8.5 and increasing belly
Nik said on 5/Oct/16
I think 5'8.25
Sam said on 16/Aug/16
Why is he listed at 5ft 10. He's evidently shorter. I thought to myself whilst watching EastEnders that he seemed to be at the lower end of average.
Dave said on 11/Aug/16
I saw him next to Ross Kemp on Eastenders 9/8/16 and Kemp had him by 2 inches.
Mark said on 11/Aug/16
I've seen some lists which have him at 5'10!
James B said on 10/Aug/16
I thought 5'8.5
Editor Rob
he never looks a guy with that great a posture.
