It's a touch of sparkle for Graham to have found out that he DOES have a little daughter after all, having lost his wife and baby in a car accident, while he was at the wheel - drunk, and persecuting himself mercilessly ever since.

He's changed his will, bequeathing all his worldly possessions to the child, bless him. There's another possibility for new happiness in his life as he's fallen in love with Rhona, the vet, played by 5ft1 Zoe Henry, and she with him. So far, I don't think he's had much luck with relationships, and I SO hope that these two get together!

I have my fingers crossed that there isn't too much heartache to be experienced by Jamie Tate when he finds out and that having two Dads can be a positive experience, if you let it.

Today my guess for Graham, I mean Andrew (!), is 5ft9.25.

⭐ It's worthwhile to add that the little granddaughter of Kim Tate, as written about in my comment from the 22nd September, is the biological child of Andrew's Graham Foster. What a turn-up for the books that was! 😮 She's going to explode! 😝🖕 to her with my compliments!

Kim Tate's little granddaughter lost her lollipop. "Did you drop it in the car? Shall I have a look?" said Kim.

Then, pointing to Graham, the kid squeaked, "No he can!" (referring to Graham) "He's the servant!"

Graham (Andrew) merely cleared his throat! 😏

I am watching the 'Emmerdale' omnibus and was marvelling at what a chore it was.

Then I heard Andrew Scarborough's deep and sexy voice and I thought, "Well, not any more!" 👂😋👂

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jul/19
I'm glad Andrew had a suppressed sense of humour about the streaking couple!
😂😂😂 I even saw him grinning - twice!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/19
What on Earth does his cleaning lady think she's doing, going through Andrew's diary? That is a sacking offence!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Mar/19
I didn't half panic when that horrid Kim Tate was prepared to kick him out! 😝

Being the man he is, he wouldn't accept it, and told her where to go! He must surely have the sexiest voice on TV at present. 😋🏆

I'll give Andrew 9.25" over the 5ft mark once again, and his second comment of the year. 😁👍

On Saturday night/Sunday morning, Andrew Scarborough was a very welcome 'guest star' in one of my dreams! I was suffering from a bad cough, and Andrew said in his manly voice, "You need something for that cough!"

Absolutely stunned, I accepted a bottle containing a herb-based remedy, but not before I stroked his hand in gratitude!

I always find that 'Emmerdale' is more exciting when Andrew is figuring heavily in the storyline. I keep expecting Joe Tate to reappear, as he has been on the front cover of my TV mag recently with Mr Scarborough for the second time since his supposed demise. Why is Andrew's character, Graham, drinking through guilt if Joe is still alive and just been warned off? There has been no activity in Joe's bank account since he disappeared, so perhaps Graham gave him a large sum of Kim Tate's money, and now that Debbie has involved the Police, all will soon be revealed.

I found one scene particularly touching last week when Graham went to see Charlotte Bellamy's character for advice on a problem they share: that of alcoholism. Charlotte, who plays Laurel, I was surprised to find is 5ft3.75, but because that 4ft11 assistant of his is never out of high heels, she makes Andrew look shorter than he oughtta! She's Priya and played by Fiona Wade, the shortest cast member.

Next to Charlotte's Laurel, you could see a really notable difference between her and Andrew. Laurel was at home and not in heels, which is normally how it works! She dished out some really excellent advice to Graham, reassuring him that he had done very well to stay sober for so long and that he should seek proper help - and be honest with his girlfriend Megan, who genuinely loves him. Bravo to Laurel for that, and she also gets a huge thumbs-up emoji for enabling me to see that Andrew is every bit as tall as I expected, which is a very minimum of 5ft9 and 5ft10 when he gets out of bed in the morning. 😊👍

I give him 5ft9.25 and his first comment of 2019! 😁📺

I finally got round to watching the right 'Touching Evil' episodes which starred a young Andrew Scarborough and it was MAGNIFICENT! Robson, I must say, stole the show, but Andrew played someone way beyond his years. Another thing - if Robson's 5ft8.75, Andrew looked little short of 5ft10.

The episodes are the last two of Season Three, and the storyline centres upon fire and rebirth - scary stuff!
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Dec/18
⭐️ I bought the first series of 'Touching Evil', only to find that Andrew wasn't in it! It was still well worth seeing, and now I have Series 1-3!
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/18
I'm delighted to say that I got my little mitts on a copy of the 'Touching Evil' series which has Andrew in two episodes. I can't wait to find out whether he plays a goodie or a baddie! Although he's only 45 now, he'll have been younger in this and it'll be interesting to see if he looks the same height, and if he's slimmer, which often makes a person look taller, as was the case in his 'Silent Witness' episodes, wherein he played someone with a dubious character.

Last Night's 'Emmerdale':

I could just see that there would be a price to pay when that interfering Priya confiscated Graham's car keys, left for the shops along that long country lane and there was an irresponsible kid at the wheel of a car stolen out of spite. But what was worse than that is after the youngsters had stacked and abandoned the car, its owner came along and got in the car - steaming, stinking DRUNK! Then when he hit Graham and left him for dead, all he was worried about was his blessed car and self-preservation. I was livid! How DARE he run my Graham over! 😝

If that happened in real life, and happen it does, the victim risks suffering from life-long injuries and pain, including a bad posture and height-loss. Our roads should be treated with respect, and NEVER should anyone drive sozzled.
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Nov/18
Ha ha! Did Graham really pour beer on his breakfast cereal in tonight's 'Emmerdale'? That must taste disgusting! 😖😩
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Nov/18
Hey Rob!

I just came across an interview with Andrew where he discloses that he was in 'Coronation Street'! It was at the same time as when Suranne Jones was in it.
Editor Rob
In the UK, you eventually would appear on one of the soaps!
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/18
Yesterday I saw Andrew starring in an episode of the third series of 'Silent Witness'. He was 24/25 years of age and looked above average in height, but he was slimmer in a less muscular way than he is today, which could have accounted for his looking that much taller, not to mention the other stars probably averaged out at less than the 'Emmerdale' crowd he stars with now.

Had he had a bigger part in this, I would have considered buying the third series of 'Silent Witness'. I already have the first two on their way!

While hunting around on the internet for things Andrew has starred in, I found that he was in 'Touching Evil', with Robson Green. I therefore ordered the first series to scrutinise the couple of episodes he is in. Robson is a good measuring implement, and I rate Robson's 'Wire in the Blood', which I have in its entirety. From what I've seen of 'Touching Evil', it is pretty much on the same lines in its capacity to thrill. Yes, real edge-of-your-seat stuff, with the added bonus of Andrew Scarborough. Now that suits me fine!😁

I'm going to give him 5ft9.5.
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/18
The person who said that is Connor. Hi Connor, and Happy Halloween! 🎃😁👍
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/18
So glad to see him back after largely missing out on last week! I heard him before I actually saw him, and then when I looked up I noticed him talking to Cain. There didn't seem to be much difference height-wise, and whoever said that Cain looked 5ft11 with him has indeed got a point, unless the scene was filmed at Andrew's tallest time of the day, which could easily be nearing 5ft10.

@Nik i just cant see him at only 5'8.75 Nik, he's been making Jeff Hordley look like a 5'11 guy recently which i wouldn't rule out for him, but i think Andrew has been looking more of a strong 5'9 guy than a weak one, he's got to be at least a solid 5'9er.
Nik said on 17/Oct/18
I do think it is likely that he is at least 5'8.75" but 5'9.25" at tops! He is a great addition to celebheights!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
@ Connor - Well said! 👍
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
@ Little sue - That's because his part calls for an expressionless face. He can let go though - I've seen it!

I think he's an excellent actor.
Connor Simpson said on 15/Oct/18
@little sue I disagree, his acting seems pretty good, especially in scenes when he gets angry and shouts and like when he got upset after assassinating Joe, he really shows emotion I think, id say he's one of the best actors I've ever seen in Emmerdale in my opinion.
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Oct/18
Well, Rob, I like it!! It's a nice BIG one! 😊
Connor Simpson said on 14/Oct/18
Rob do you think Andrew might be over 5'9? Like 5'9.25 or 5'9.5?
Editor Rob
The most I'd go with is 9.25
little sue said on 14/Oct/18
I would guess about 5ft 9. Think his performance in Emmerdale so wooden, he has about 3 expressions!
Connor Simpson said on 14/Oct/18
@Sandy Cowell he might be 5'9.25 or possibly 9.5, but Jeff looks a bit shorter nowadays, I wouldn't be surprised if he is closer to the 5'11 range today.
Nik said on 13/Oct/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I know exactly which scene you are talking about, it was from Thursday's second episode of "Emmerdale"! It was great to see the way that Andrew remained cool and unmoved when Jeff Hordley's character Cain Dingle (autocorrect tried to change it to Dongle!) squared up to him, and of course this scene provided us with ample opportunity to compare their heights too! As you can imagine I have nearly worn the pause button out on the remote control and it has to be said that Andrew always looked over 5'9" when compared to Jeff, but that is assuming their postures and footwear were equal! Then there is the small matter of possible hair advantage to consider!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Oct/18
Particularly superb choice of picture Rob! 👌
Editor Rob
I think it was the only one on the prphotos site!
184.5/185Jeff said on 12/Oct/18
Great actor, best performance I have seen in a long while, and seems reasonably over 5ft9, I would say not far off 5ft10
Sakz said on 12/Oct/18
Next to Jeff Hordley who plays Cain (who is listed at 5'11.75) he looked over 5'9 and closer to 5'10 although footwear may have influenced that. Jeff also doesn't have the best posture at times so that was also probably a factor. However, seeing him next to other members of the cast 5'9 seems about right and in terms of proportions he looks average height.
Nik said on 12/Oct/18
I have faith in Rob so Andrew, from Harrogate, can 'ave 5'9"!
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Oct/18
He was fantastic tonight AGAIN, putting on a performance to be proud of.

He didn't so much as flinch when Cain stood up and tried to look all threatening! Cain, played by Jeff Hordley, is very nearly 6ft. Andrew did NOT have it necessary to look down at him when giving him the eye-to-eye. He could look him virtually straight in the face, and that was something I couldn't help noticing. Perhaps Andrew is nearer 5ft10 at certain times of the day, because he sure looked over 5ft9 in that scene!

Jeff's Cain had better watch out! He's no longer the hardest hard nut in 'Emmerdale'!
Nik said on 11/Oct/18
@ Rob - Thanks for giving Andrew Scarborough his page on this website!

@ Sandy Cowell - Look who's here, we are so lucky to see Andrew Scarborough aboard celebheights!

Andrew has an excellent acting CV and he always performs very well when playing the part of Graham Foster in "Emmerdale", he is also a theatre actor who performs in a number of major theatres! It is great that celebheights has provided us all with accurate information about Andrew Scarborough's height!
Zampo said on 11/Oct/18
I actually think there is greater chance Mr Scarborough would measure slightly under than over 5'9. 5'8.75 is entirely possible from what I've seen.
Zampo said on 11/Oct/18
Sandy Cowell, thought as much he was "about 5'9" (as I stated in the height request page). I am quite confident Ned Porteus would measure in the 5'11 range. Maybe similar to someone like Finn Jones (on celebheights).
Paul Wood said on 11/Oct/18
I thought he was shorter but after seeing photos of him with 6ft Ned Porteous I think 5ft 9in is correct.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Oct/18
I think he could reach 5ft10 or just under at his tallest time of day.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Oct/18
I'm so pleased to see him on Celebheights! I think he's really made his mark in 'Emmerdale' now. You can tell he's an experienced actor - unfortunately I haven't seen 'Downton Abbey' - but I'm loving him in 'Emmerdale' right now. He just gets better and better!

Height-wise, I would say a strong, burly 5ft9, a bit like my boyfriend!

Great to see him - thanks Rob!
