How tall is Ainsley Harriott

Ainsley Harriott's Height

6ft 2 ¾ (189.9 cm)

UK TV Chef Presenter. He said once on his show Ready Steady Cook '[I'm] about 6ft 3] when a big contestant appeared. I actually thought he looked more 6ft 2ish...but fellow ready steady cooker [and strictly come dancing contestant] James Martin claims himself as 6ft 4 (I don't think he's that big) and on that show they looked close in height.

This surprises me as he never really looks that tall compared to other contestants. He also seemed noticeably shorter than former Big Brother contestant Glyn Wise who is exactly the same height as 189cm listed Richard Madeley.

Yeah never struck me as looking a legit 6'3 more 6'2 I thought

Yeah I think "about 6'3" might mean just off it. 6'2.5-75 is more likely than a 191 6'3 anyway, but he can look near it at times.

189/190cm zone. Not convinced he's quite a 6ft3 guy either.

Rob can you add a photo? Maybe 191 is a bit high? Looks taller than 6'2 flat and can look a big 6'3 though, maybe 190 might be more accurate? I think he edges out Martin, though a tad over 6'2 for Martin not impossible.
Editor Rob: I'll get round to adding photos eventually on missing pages.

The last thing I seen him on was Strictly, I would have said 6ft 2.5 might have been possible there, 6ft 3 is possibly a little high, though his posture has got worse since the early 90's.

he was in a show with Len Goodman.were he tried to get him to eat food he would not eat,Curry and things like that,they were more or less the same height,because I was thinking Len is tall,no way is he over 6'2''could be down to 6'1'' now if Len is only 6'

Len Goodman I'd guess was 6'1 peak. He's 72 but still looks healthy and in good nick so he might not have lost a great deal, 1-2 cms probably. Today I'd say 6'0.25.

Rob, how tall would you say Goodman is?


He's listed 6ft but I think he may have been a bit over it peak
Editor Rob: he can look 184 range
Rory said on 11/Feb/16
No way Len is just 6ft flat, he looks taller than that even today in his seventies..peak must have been 6'1-2.

On TV at the moment with Len Goodman. Len's official height is a round 6ft and he's an older gentlemen getting knee replacements etc. ANyway there is nothing like 3 inches between the two of them. He looks similar to ANthony Ogogo in line up picture. As a boxer he will be officially measured and he's 180cm

Editor Rob: ogogo looks taller than 5ft 11 flat, ainsley can look a 6ft 2-2.5 guy though

Saw him on a show about his family earlier this evening, he was with Len Goodman. Online Goodman is listed as about 6 foot (he is well into his 70s so could have lost height) and as he stood next to Harriott there really didn't look to be that much difference, with Ainsley slightly taller.

On TV and pics looks a classic 6'2 guy not 6'3
James said on 14/Apr/11

Saw him filming in Borough Market on 19th March 08 - he is tall and and 6'4" looks right. He towered over the female presenter. Larger than life, a very charismatic pesonality and welcoming to everyone who asked for autographs. A lovely person it was a pleasure to see and meet him

Ainsley was on an edition of ready steady cook with Vinnie Jones,Vinnie seemed taller than Ainsley def NOT shorter so I can't see how Ainsley is even 6ft 3in more like 6ft 2in.Although V.J was probably wearing lifts too!

James Martin is not I think under 6'3'', doubtful about 6'4'' though it might be right.
