I thought this guy was at least 6ft! He actually can look tallish on Corrie…just shows what a short cast they have overall

Kirk has just asked the undertaker, “Can you tell me something I’ve always wanted to know? Is it true that dead people faaaaart?”

Well, of course they do!

I remember that line from all those years ago!

That was a lovely melody Kirk played on his guitar tonight; I’ve heard Andrew is a devoted player and tonight proved that fact.

5ft9.75. 🎸

Get off that high horse of yours, Kirk, and forgive your wife for her misdemeanour with that scheming little arsonist 12-year-old. She’s hardly tiny and at half her age, kids from my generation were being slapped by adults for far lesser misdeeds. No, it wasn’t right, and oftentimes, the wrong child was punished, with no consequences for the assailant. Indeed I was very happy when the cane was abolished in schools. Some kids from my era were told how lucky we were NOT to receive the belt and other disgraceful punishments that were around when our parents were children. All completely monstrous, but a slap doled out on the spur of the moment isn’t the end of the world, so long as it doesn’t happen again. Forgive your wife, Kirky!

I prefer the Andrew from The Royle Family - and the Celebrity Jungle! 😁

Kirk has gone into the corner shop and espied a chocolate covered apple. Sunita says when he asks if they sell well, “Kids like them because they’re chocolate and Mums like them because they’re apples.”

They sound a good idea to me! When I was little, we only had toffee apples, and they were a conundrum in themselves to break into, and risky to the teeth.

I’d eat a chocolate apple! 🍫🍎😋

Andrew gets 5ft10. 😀👍🏼

I thought this guy was much taller!

Yet again I am watching The Royle Family, and Darren was asked by Jim why he lost his job. “I got caught nicking!” replies Darren, played by Andrew.

On hearing that it was a fridge/freezer, Jim says, “You can’t exactly stick one of them up your jumper!”

Well, he DID get caught, Jim! 😮

I saw Andy in ‘The Royle Family’ last night, and he looked very boyish. He was sitting in the kitchen with Ralph Little, and they were eating away! He looked so young that I was wondering whether he was even fully grown, but we didn’t see him standing up.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/21
Well, fancy that! Andrew played one of the four children in the disturbing Cracker episode, 'Brotherly Love'. Both his parents were killers. 😟

Well, Andy grew up to star once again with Cracker's Ricky Tomlinson in The Royle Family AND join the cast of Coronation Street. Not only that - he charmed the pants off us in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here, taking the winner's crown in 2019.

@ Sandy Cowell - No! I do whistle though from time to time, whistling relieves stress too!

It’s cool that his friend Caitlyn (autocorrect tried to change it to Carolyn!) Jenner will give him a right royal towering! 😈💨🏢 📦 🏬
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Oct/21
I know your Mum sings a lot and so do I - but do YOU? It's very stress relieving!
Nik Ashton said on 26/Oct/21
@ Sandy Cowell - My Mum sings it a lot and I do like it too!

Andrew’s wife must be at least 5’8”!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/21
Hey, Kirkie! You can't do robotic dancing to Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline'! Eeeek!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Oct/21
Kirk goes to the Horrornation Street fest dressed as a mummy. Bright kid Sam asks him which dynasty he's from, as Kirk replies, "I'm more of a Dallas man meself!" 😖

Kirk's dinnertime conversation must be rivetting!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/21
🐻 Soppy and funny Kirkie didn't know how to spell bear, bless him! He thought it was spelt in the same way as your spell the word that means NAKED! 😲

5ft10 for this Peter Pan of a guy, who never seems to grow up.

⭐ Once he went up to an undertaker and asked him if it's true that corpses fart! Well, it is true actually, Kirkie-boy! 😂😂🤣💨
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/20
@ Sakz - That's a long time ago, but I'm answering it anyway! Initially, I wanted Caitlyn Jenner to win, but I grew so fond of them all that I simply didn't mind in the end and was perfectly happy with the result! 😉👍

Andy gets 5ft10.
Sakz said on 13/Dec/19
@Sandy Generally I subtract a few cm's off what they're listed at on Google, especially if I know they aren't that tall. 187cm would be more like a shoe height for him so like you I can see him being a weak 6'1 barefoot. Out of interest who did you want to see win the final?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/19
@ Sakz - Hi Sakz! I've actually gone down with my estimation for Roman too. I found 187cm for him, but there's no way he's 4cm more than Dad Martin's 6ft. Yes, I go along with nearer the 6ft1 mark now, possibly a quarter-inch less. Martin turned 58 in October, but he does still look fit and full-heighted.

Cheers to you, Sakz, mate! 😉👍 XX
Sakz said on 10/Dec/19
@Sandy I know I wanted Andy to win. I don't think Roman is as high as 6'2 probably more around 6'1. Looked about an inch taller than his 6'0 dad in the pictures I saw.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Dec/19

"Everyone needs an Andy in their lives!" said one of his fellow contestants.

Well, this special guy has come second in this year's Jungle fest, and a very worthy runner-up he is too.

Congratulations go your way from Great Britain! 😁👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Dec/19
I'm watching the repeat of the Celebrity Jungle. I heard a farting sound and thought, "That wasn't me!" 😂😂😂

It was Andy's reaction that verified that it came from the TV. The culprit was the tall and lanky ⭐Roman Kemp⭐, and it was a good 'un!

It would be great if Roman gets a page, Rob! I think he's 6ft2.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/19
Now my money is either on Andy or Roman. (In the Celebrity Jungle).

Andy has been such a good laugh, just as I expected him to be!

5ft10 again. You might lose weight in the jungle but you don't lose height...

Saad Khan said on 23/Nov/19
He looks very close to 5'10
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Nov/19
Andrew has joined the guys in the Jungle and you can see his fun side surfacing. Not surprising really when you think that this guy starred in 'The Royle Family', and must have had such a laugh with Caroline, Sue, Ricky and the rest of the cast!

He had a good time tonight, and there's nothing quite like THIS show for judging people's heights; they can't exactly wear built-up shoes or high heels and do what's required of them in those!

Andy gets 5ft10. 👏

Good luck, mate! 😉👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Oct/19
What a lovely idea to make it Christmassy for Sinead before she slips away. His reason couldn't be sweeter, coming out with, "Miracles happen at Christmas!"

If only it would for Sinead....🎅🎵🎄

When somebody says something funny, it takes a few more seconds for it to sink into Kirkie's brain than it does for anyone else! But he's used to playing funny parts. He was in 'The Royle Family' after all, with top actors Caroline Aherne, Ricky Tomlinson and Sue Johnson.

I agree with CD that his overall height looks to be nearer 5ft9.75 than 5ft9.5. He's MUCH taller than Lisa George, who plays his adoring wife. She can look quite short next to him, but at 5ft5, she's distinctly average.
Nik said on 21/May/19
He did look a tad shorter than Antony Cotton on Corrie this week!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/May/19
Yee hah! Kirkie is going to do the tour after all!

I've read that singing was his favourite subject at acting school! 🎼🎶
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/May/19
There is nothing wrong with people laughing at your songs, Kirkie! Your wifey is being overly sensitive and should definitely let you go on this tour. Making people cry with laughter is a gift! 😂🤣😂😂😉🎸

Dressing up with headgear like Mark Knopfler's is also very funny, even if you don't sound like him! In fact, I'll rephrase that: ESPECIALLY if you don't sound like him!

Andrew gets 5ft10.
CD said on 11/May/19
I too had him down as a full 5’10 guy to be honest, but I will revise my guess to 5’9.75. I think 5’9.5 is the absolute minimum he would be .
Nik said on 4/May/19
He's the same height as Damaris Lewis!
Nik said on 3/May/19
It's great to find out how tall he is!
Nik said on 3/May/19
It's great that Andrew is given a listing on celebheights from Mr Rob Paul, he is generally down as 5'10" on the internet!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/May/19
I think the above picture lets him down to be perfectly honest! 🤷
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/May/19
Firstly, I'd like to thank you very much, Rob, for adding Andrew.

He was so funny last week when he strummed his guitar and sang a song about @ holes being beautiful! Not in my limited experience they're not! Functional maybe, but that's where I draw the line....

As for his height, I think that for the vast part of the day, he's 5ft10. He looks a good 5" taller than his screen wife, played by the 5ft5 Lisa George.

On those grounds, I will give this amusing bundle of a guy 5ft10.
