It's astonishing that she's tall while her mom is really short

I doubt she's as low as 5'9", but a fraction under 5'10" is possible.

She's 5'9" , typically my height !
Mimi said on 4/Nov/20
She did up her dad's height by an inch so I think she's also an inch shorter than 5'10

I wonder if she didn't finish growing during college, hence why she listed herself as 5'9". Or that she's not a full 5'10" to begin with, and decided to round down.

@ Sandy Cowell - You are absolutely correct, it is classed as assault when someone is physically pushed over. It is so important to have cameras in as many places as possible and I want society to condemn bullying and discrimination as much as is necessary so that socially it is even more unacceptable than it is now to bully people and discriminate against people.

@ Nik - Too right it is! To be physically pushed over is quite a shock to the system, and counts as assault. It's as well that there are cameras everywhere nowadays, but I can't see myself taking the matter further unless the pushing over resulted in a bad injury. Cheers Nik! πŸ˜πŸ‘

She's very height aware!

@ Sandy Cowell - Such behaviour is unacceptable.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jun/19
Having said that, there are a great many well-behaved and helpful ones, who do make room for you, and reach for things that you're unable to! πŸ˜‰
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/19
@ Rob - Yes the taller people DO expect shorter ones to get out of the way, and if they don't, they are pushed. I have even been pushed over! πŸ˜•

Her Dad's getting smaller too! The average (autocorrect tried to change it to ver age!) vote works out to be 5'10" after 3 votes!

@ Sandy Cowell - It depends on where you live. It ain’t that short up β€˜ere where I live.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Jun/19
Bessie inherited her Dad's nose!
Nik said on 18/Jun/19
@ Sandy Cowell - That is so very true! Maybe if Imelda was average height Bessie would have been less than four inches shorter than her Dad!

@ Littlelee5ft6 - Yes, a 5'5" woman and a 5'0" woman are clearly short but not very short or very very short!
Nik said on 17/Jun/19
It's interesting that she is 10 inches taller than her Mum!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jun/19
If you look at that picture of Bessie and her parents, Jim and Imelda, and you weren't paying too much attention, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Imelda is the little girl! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

A crisp 5ft10!

Nik it's the equivalent of a man being 5ft 5 so short but not very very short
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jun/19
@ Rob - That's ironic with Jenny's parents - a foot of difference in height and the girls measuring in at 5ft6, 7, 8 and 9 to the average eye, but on Celebheights, of course, details are IMPORTANT! πŸ“Ά!

@ It's all very well to say that 5ft isn't THAT short, but at 5ft/5ft1 in a busy, built-up Croydon shopping centre, I felt so dizzy amongst people so much taller, all hurrying around and pushing and shoving, that my head was spinning and I had to sit down before I passed out. There were a great many tall people around that day - really, really tall. Before I got home that day, I'd had a panic attack. 😟
Editor Rob
And from observations I believe shorter people seem to have less 'right of way' and taller people may expect the shorter person to move out of the way.

5'0" ain't very, very short!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/19
⭐ I can remember a while back now when you wrote about Bessie on her father's page, including a photograph which I could access at the time.

Now she has a page of her own! πŸ˜πŸ‘
Editor Rob
I don't think she had appeared in that much back then, but is now appearing in upcoming show, so is getting more roles.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/19
Does anybody know if Bessie's is an only child?
Editor Rob
I believe she is.

It's interesting that their daughter reached near 5ft 10.

Jenny's parents were 6ft 2 and 5ft 2 range peak, and the 4 sisters ended up just under 5ft 6, just over 5ft 7, 5ft 8 and change (peak jenny) and 5ft 9 and change.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jun/19
Bessie has Dad Jim's tall height and facial characteristics. It looks like Mum Imelda didn't get a look in with this particular child! She's ten whole inches taller than Imelda and taller than her 6ft2 (peak height) by an inch when you look at it on a man to woman ratio of a given five inches.
