There's a lady on 'Pointless' who wants to buy a new toilet should she win today.
Well, folks, I found that extremely amusing, as I can equate with the problem.
Is there something wrong with my wiring?
Ideally, what I desire is a 'Buy One Get One Free' opportunity. Both my toilets could do with replacing! 🚽✖️2️⃣
I wouldn't BOGOFf at a chance like THAT! 😁👌🚽🚽
Alexander gets 5ft11.

I'm watching a very interesting edition of Pointless and the subject is Royal Roles. I couldn't believe that the film 'Anne of A Thousand Days', from 1969, only scored 1 point. It starred Genevieve Bujold as Anne Boleyn and I suppose it's a film very close to my heart because it was the first film I saw about Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife. Richard Burton gave a powerful performance as Henry VIII.
Alexander has a member of a band called Ethanol on this show, on the Challenge challenge and he said he liked the name, adding that it's 'as good as any'!
Alex gets 5ft11. 😉

Alexander is starring in the 'Miss Marple' episode 'A Murder is Announced'.
I don't tend to watch the star-studded show much, but I left it on after 'Coronation Street' while combing my cats. 🐈🐈
Then suddenly I heard a very familiar voice. It was that of Alexander, and I looked up and found that it really was him! He looked really tall too, in a show consisting of mainly short women. Seeing him with the huge Richard Osman can often throw one off the scent that he's an above-average guy.

There was an amazing programme on ITV1 last night about Alexander's adventures in the Arctic and huge Greenland, complete with a view of the Northern Lights - fantastic!

There is no way he is only 8" lower than Osman. Osman look close to 22cm taller.

I would love to see a photograph of him with Gary Neville!
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jul/19
Worst he is 179cm a low. I don't see 5'11 or a proper 5'10.75" when Osman stand next to him several times.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Apr/19
Funny that there is obviously not under 22cm between Armstrong and Richard Osman and they were listed only 8 inch a part. To me Osman is strong 6'7 1/2 and Armstrong is max 5'10 3/4.

@ Monkey Knees and James B - Ooh! That's interesting! It just goes to show how much a good posture can throw one off the scent!

Arghh! Nice one Alex! He just called Wendi Peters, formerly of 'Coronation Street', (and I'm sure she used to have a page), on a Celebrity edition of 'Pointless'. He called Wendi "Windy.... Windy?
She replied "Eh, sometimes!"
Alexander never looks shorter than his 5ft11, regardless of his co-star, Richard Osman, standing well in access of six-and-a-half feet. Alex has a tall person's physique and an excellent posture.
5ft11 for the host of this great and comical, yet thoroughly interesting show.

I'm guessing the woman pictured with him must be somewhere between 5ft 9 and 10 without her heels then they don't look too high those heels
Hannah Bronwen Snow (the lady) does look quite tall in that 5ft 9+ range

Have met him whilst working as a sound tech assistant when he sang live last year; i am 5ft 11.5in morning height, he was a good inch shorter than me, with his dress shoes on. Just over 5ft 10in.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/18
Richard Osman makes him look 5'10. Osman could be arguable 6'7 1/4-6'7 1/2 that still make Alexander under 5'10 3/4. So let alone max 5'11 that is no way he could be this tall.

Rob t if he was a tiny bit taller than you then he must be at least 5'11 if you were wearing 2.5 inch heels though why a guy of average height would wear heels at all is beyond me even I at my size don't. Not that I'm judging you. It's your life
Rob T said on 6/Jun/17
Met him today. I'm 5'9 and was wearing 2.5 inches heels he was a tiny bit taller than me. 5'10 possibly 5'10.5 at a pinch. Lovely chap.

He could be 177cm and just 180cm with 3cm footwear
James B said on 14/Feb/17
I've met Alexander Armstrong and he's not 5ft 11. Was at most 4cm taller than me and I'm 5ft 8 (173cm). Probably 5ft 10 on a good day. Michael Scott (who I've also met) is just over 6ft 1 and if you look at them on 'Invisible Cities' he looks about 3.5 inches taller than Armstrong.
Chris said on 5/Feb/17
Maybe closer to 5"10. 179? There is pretty much 9 inches between Osman and him

lol at 6ft3...
Alex R said on 3/Jun/16
He's nowhere near 6'3.
N said on 27/Mar/15
He's the shortest 5'11" I've ever met. At 5'11" I've never looked down at somebody my own height!
pjk said on 20/Oct/14
Alexander looks about 5'10" - 5'11". Richard Osman looks very tall. He looks easily 6'7" next to Alexander.

Armstrong with 6'1 listed Paul O Grady and Richard Osman who claims 6'7. Could Osman be more than 6'7? That looks slightly more than 8 inch difference.
MaskDeMasque said on 11/Feb/12
hmm so that makes ben miller about 5'8ish which i always expected, never looks the 5'9 he has claimed.

I can now die happily knowing I've contributed :D
said on 10/Feb/12
ROB, he replied to my twitter question with 5'11, you were right. :D
excellent, you now get your name forever at the top of the page now :)
yeah, so pretty much that's what the interviewer done - checked the net and then put it into the article!
Godred said on 10/Feb/12
Yep think you`ve got this guy nailed Rob,never looked close to 6`3 to me,that`s quite an inflation.i guess he might be 184.
said on 10/Feb/12
He's in the elite band of celebs that add 3 or 4 inches to their height, wouldn't you say rob.
I'm wondering though if the interviewer who mentioned 6ft 3 actually just went on the net and picked the figure up now...
Lord said on 9/Feb/12
He looks a definite 6'3" next to 6'6" Richard Osman.
MaskDeMasque said on 9/Feb/12
seems about right. is listed as 6'3 on a certain film site, which i thought seemed way too tall to be correct.
Josh B said on 9/Feb/12
Yey, thanks Rob.
What a height inflation, 3 inches is quite a lot.
