How tall is Ben Shephard

Ben Shephard's Height

5ft 9 ½ (176.5 cm)

British TV presenter who has presented GMTV, Good Morning Britain and numerous other shows. When someone suggest on Twitter that Ben was 5ft 9, he replied "5'9!!! How very dare you?! I'm 5'9+1/2 that's a very important half inch!!!", although in the daily mail he was quoted saying that a misconception about him was he was short and "People meet me and always say, 'You're much taller than I expected.' I'm 5ft 10 1/2. The half's very important!"

There was a contestant on today’s Tipping Point who, when confronted with a history question, replied that it was a bit before his time. How superfluous is that? That statement really grits my πŸ’©!

Once on The Chase, Anne Hegerty answered very sarcastically when a male contestant came out with the self same thing and I cheered! If something is historical, it’s simply GOT TO be rather dated. Still, the Topping Point contestant won today’s match. He had an uplifting smile worked out in the gym every day and his name was Jacob. He was a tall fellow, prompting me to wonder how tall Ben is.

I’m going with 5ft9.5 for Ben. πŸ˜„

I watch Ninja Warrior UK quite a lot which is hosted by Ben, Rochelle Humes and Chris Kamara. Rochelle does the show in flat Shoes and is a good couple of inches shorter than Ben. There are pictures of them together where Rochelle is in high heels and then they look the same height. That would suggest that the 5'9.5" listing for Ben is pretty good.

Looks like a strong 5'9 guy on tipping point. 5'9.5 is fair.

Rob, I literally just saw him in a Marylebone hotel, he is 5”8.5 max. He’s probably around 5”9 in shoes. I’m 6”0.5 barefoot and he was just below my eyebrows. I think you’ve listed his shoes height. Looked 174cm to me, probably around 175/176cm with shoes.

@ SAK - He may be claiming his shoe height!
SAK said on 1/Feb/20
He said he was 5'10.5" on GMB.

Claiming 1" higher than actual height is reasonable. Claiming 2" or more, then its a bit of a stretch.

Oh, nice one - Ben IS here! I've been getting into his show 'Tipping Point' lately, something I used to watch with my boyfriend Jim. Anything with questions appeals to me, and this one has loads of them, with the choice of three options to choose from, only one of which is correct.

Yes, Ben looks a little taller than the host of the following show, 'The Chase', which is Bradley Walsh, who is 5ft8.5, and two of his 'Chasers' are enormous, what with 6ft6.25 Mark Labbett and Shaun Wallace, who is around the 6ft3 mark. The host either makes or breaks the show, and Ben's got my attention well and truly, but he's not as funny as Brad, or Chris (Millionaire) Tarrant.

As for his height, I won't forget the half-inch, Ben! Plus, of course, the 5ft9...

Proof that a solid 5'9 is perfectly average. He looks 5'9.5 in that Renner pic. The vast majority of guys his height would claim 5'10, so i think being more honest only helps us 5'9ers in the long run :)
John said on 30/Jul/17
hm a tad less than I thought he was, eventhough he isn't really tall I thought he may have scrapped a 5'10
Mark(5'9.5") said on 24/Jul/17
His 5'10" claim isn't terrible. Rob, Google listed this dude at 6'4"!!

I feel like I need to meet this guy one day πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€’πŸ€’πŸŽ‡πŸŽ‡πŸŒˆπŸŒˆβ˜„οΈβ˜„οΈ

Rob, How tall would you estimate his wife?
Editor Rob
it's possible she is close to 5ft 6

Ok, shoe height definitely makes sense.
Big C said on 31/Oct/15
But you have to admit Rob it is possible Ben could get just over 5ft 10 in shoes right? If he is just under 5ft 10 barefeet? It's like when I was 16 I was just over 6ft in shoes, 6ft 0.4-0.5, but barefeet I was 5ft 11 3/4 -5ft 11 7/8, weak 6ft, so it is possible that 5ft 10 1/2 could be his height in shoes?
Editor Rob
yes he could be 5ft 10.5 in a shoe
Big C said on 30/Oct/15
Rob maybe the 5ft 10 and a half is a shoe height? But yeah Ben does look a weak 5ft 10, I always thought he looked that.
Editor Rob

He typed the 5ft 9.5 on his own twitter, so that's from his own is always a possibility dailymail interviewer wrote the wrong number? It can happen sometimes.

but then, I've seen many celebrities on twitter give different heights themselves in different tweets.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight or shoe size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
