Last week, Manelia broke my 32” television, leaving me without a box to watch. It’s the second TV she’s busted! Now I’ve finally got my little TV going again, and hearing Bradley’s and Shaun Wallace’s voices is simply DIVINE.

On tonight’s edition, I learnt that Pepe Le Pew, the cartoon skunk, had a love interest. I vaguely remember that he was attracted to a cat as my late boyfriend used to an avid fan of the show. One thing I had no idea of, however, is that she was named Penelope Pussycat! 😂😹🤣

You can forgive the skunk for thinking that Penelope was another skunk though; they’re pretty similar in appearance and both black and white. PP doesn’t stink though! In my long ‘career’ as a cat owner, I’ve only had one cat with a personal problem! 😷💩

It’s amazing the trivia you can pick up from the Chase and others like it.

🐈🦨 “Naff awf! You don’t half smell bad!”

Today’s Chase was FANTASTIC! A 20-year-old was the only contestant to get through and he won £75,000! His breadth of knowledge was a knock out and I was so pleased for him. His name is Eden and he played against Darragh Ennis.

Brad gets 5ft8.5 and half an inch less today.

Well played Eden! 🏆

This time, IT’S ME in stitches! There was a Chase question as to what a Plymouth Fury is. In all honesty, I was larking around, and didn’t have a scooby, so I came out with, “A cake!”

It was a CAR! I wouldn’t like to eat one of those!

Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jan/23
Brad’s at it again - he’s in stitches!

There was a question which went:

What mustn’t you let under the tent?

The answers were a) The camel’s hump, b) The camel’s nose and c) The camel’s toe? 🐪👃🤭

As soon as toe came up, Brad’s face was in the contorted mess that all Chase fans are familiar with! The answer was NOSE, and no, I’d never heard of that one! 😂👌🏼

There’s a lady on The Chase who likes Barry Manilow. Bradley modestly added that he’d worked with the guy! What HASN’T he done, yet he persistently plays the fool.

He shouldn’t, as he’s a talented guy, with a great deal going for him. Mind you, his larking around makes for great entertainment and his laughing at the rude questions is simply gorgeous, and very addictive for us viewers! 😁

There was a question this morning on The Chase as to how many legs an impala has.

I burst out with, “EIGHT!” and then started laughing when I pictured the animal!

It’s a quadruped, not an insect! 😂😂😂

The game, against Mark Labbett, was one of the most successful ever. All four contestants got through and they each won fifteen big ones apiece. Just as well they didn’t have me on their team…..! 🤣👎

I love The Christmas Chase! All apart from Bradders, all the lovely stars are dressed as pantomime characters, and it’s a feast for the eyes!

A guy on The Chase just now made a rather embarrassing slip! When asked which type of bird a seagull is, he said, “A fish!”


Well, they do eat them, and you are what you eat…..

There’s a very funny contestant on today’s Chase called Stuart. Brad asked him if he was any good and he said, “Absolutely not!”

Then Bradley asked him if he ran as a youngster and he said, “The only thing I ran to was the fridge!” 😂👌🏼

I think there was some false modesty going on here. Stuart acquired £9K in the Cash Build-Up. ☺️

He’s got through as well! 👍🏼

There’s a lady contestant on The Chase who keeps rescue chickens! One of them is called Whoopi Goldberg and another is Beyoncé. She’s a good player and I hope she does well. 🐓🐓

Her name is Lorraine and Brad said he liked her shoes, so she offered to lend them to him! He WOULD be tall with women’s shoes on! 👠👠

Alas, the chicken-rescuing lady didn’t get through. She erred on a Peter Cook and Dudley Moore question, and being a great fan of their lunacy, I knew it, as did Chaser Anne for that matter. I can just imagine her chortling her head off listening to the comedy duo! 😂👌🏼

Gaynor didn’t win, but she’s nice enough to save up for one out of her own money!
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Sep/22
There was a lady on the Chase this morning called Gaynor and she was sitting next to a Gloria, so singer Gloria Gaynor popped into my head!

Anyway, I liked Gaynor very much because she wanted the winnings to buy a garden playhouse for her 8 cats. 😇 She’s got through, so good luck to her!

Gaynor has spiky blonde hair and is taller than Brad.

Peak height: 5ft8.5 and half-an-inch less today.

There’s a woman on The Chase who is over a head shorter than Bradley! That’s not a very common occurrence at all!
Her name is Joyce and she faultered at the last hurdle. 😠
Sandy C said on 23/Jul/22
Bradley could barely keep a straight face when he asked a contestant on The Chase as to which film is famous for its scene containing a bunch of flatulent cowboys sitting round a campfire eating beans.

The answer is, of course, Blazing Saddles!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/May/22
There was a question on The Chase as to who were the last to invade England, and the options were: a) The Anglo Saxons, b) The Normans or c) The Vikings.

The contestant put the Vikings. It could only be THE NORMANS, and our Royal family tree can be traced right back to William the Conqueror, and beyond.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/May/22
Bored with the comedy repeats on the side I usually watch, I’ve turned over to The Chase. There’s a lady contestant answering her questions and I thought she looked positively tall. After some adverts and another question about polyglots (multilingual people), I decided that she had to be about 5ft10. THEN BRADDERS STOOD UP STRAIGHT! Yes, he’s fooled me once again, and though he sometimes jokes about his height being minimal, it’s not often that a woman is taller than him when she’s wearing flat shoes. Brad has a couple of tall Chasers, 6ft6+ and 6ft3, so he seems to feel rather undersized standing with these guys.

5ft8 for today and 5ft8.5 for his peak.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Mar/22
🐼 I learnt from Bradley’s Chase this afternoon that in China, a panda isn’t named until he or she is 100 days old!

Superstition I wonder? Well probably, as I can’t imagine any animal to be sporting a dynamic and sparkling personality from which to base the name at just over 14 weeks of age! 🐼

5ft8.5 peak; 5ft8 now for Brad’s height.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Feb/22
At the end of today's Chase, in which Mark Labbett beat a team of 4's score of 23, I noticed a very unusual name pop up amongst the credits. It was Shatwell and it really made me laugh!
Peak height - 5ft8.5
Today - 5ft8.

His son, Barney, seems a little shorter than Brad.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Dec/21
While watching The Chase with my brother, I popped out to make some tea.

As I was heading for the door, my brother came out with this interesting fact:

In 1700, tea was a luxury product, costing a pound for one pound of the stuff.

Well, I knew it was expensive, but that's just Madness, isn't it Suggs? 🍵
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/21
Thanks to Bradley's Chase, I now know that SpongeBob SquarePants has a pet snail!


Peak 5ft8.5; Now 5ft8.

Darragh 'The Menace' Ennis is on. Isn't it time he had a page on Celebheights, Rob? (Please!)
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Oct/21
Bradley often jokes around about lacking in the brains department, but he knew what defenestration meant in a question today. I only knew because it's based on the French word for window, la fenetre, with an 'accent circonflexe' over the second 'e'.

So don't put yourself down Brad!

Peak height: 5ft8.5; today: 5ft8.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/21
There was a contestant on The Chase this morning called Cynth. Bradley cheekily asked her, "...and what's that short for - Synthesiser?"

The contestant meekly replied, "Cynthia."

Bradley, Bradley, naughty Bradley - it's too early in the morning for belly laughs!

5ft8.5 peak and a quarter-inch less for today.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Aug/21
The black guy with the bleached blond hair and the massively addictive laugh is a drag artist and he's wearing a shirt decorated with pictures of Marilyn Monroe.

He's gone for the higher amount - £40,000. I do hope he gets through.

Brad can have 5ft8.5 for his peak and half-an-inch less for today's height.

Oh dear! John has been caught by Shaun Wallace, and says, "C'est la vie!"

Well, at least he had the GUTS to go high - and was very likeable. 😁👏
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/May/21
I was just walking into my living room to rejoin 'The Chase' when I heard a raspberry being blown. I sat down to see who might have been the guilty culprit when I saw a tiny young man of about 5ft3.5 and Chaser Anne. It wasn't Bradley because he'd said, "Say something then!"

I'm 95% sure that the raspberry was blown by Anne because I'd seen it before. Brad's reply? "And you think I'm childish....!"


5ft8.5 peak and half-an-inch less today.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/21
I've been hunting around to find new Chaser, Irish scientist Darragh 'The Menace' Ennis, but have met with little success. Darragh has laughed off reports that he's an estimated 5ft7, claiming that it's one of the funniest things he's ever read about himself! I reckon he's around 5ft8.

It would be great for him to be added to Celebheights please, Rob. 😋

Bradders gets 5ft8.5 for his peak and half an inch below for today's height.

He was 3cm shorter than 5ft9 Connelly on the chase .

On The Chase S13E124 (according to the YouTube video), Bradley and a contestant are trying to work out how high a volleyball net would be and Bradley uses his height as measure, which he says is 5'8". the Chaser Shaun Wallace scoffs at 5'8", so maybe he's slightly shorter than that (or Shaun is just a bit mean!)
Editor Rob
A half inch loss is very possible for Walsh, he does seem no more than 5ft 8 these recent couple of years.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Feb/21
⭐ Congratulations to Bradley, who's going to be a grandfather for the first time. His daughter, Hayley, the eldest of his two children, is expecting! ⭐

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Feb/21
Bradley calls animals AMNIMALS!

I found it particularly funny as my boyfriend and I call them that as well - amongst other things. 🐃🐆🐎

5ft8.5. The other day on an edition of The Chase, Brad literally towered over two consecutive contestants, and the first, the shorter one, was a man. I'd say he didn't even come up to Brad's shoulders!
Leesheff85 said on 2/Feb/21
How tall would his son barney be rob?? Maybe 5ft 6 to 7 range judging by photos of them both??

yeah he could be close to 5ft 7, looks shorter than Bradley.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/21

There was a question on The Chase today which went thus:

In which country is it legal to marry a dead person, under the right circumstances?

The choices were:-

a) Italy,
b) Netherlands or
c) France

Brad said, apart from expressing utter dismay, that he hoped it's France! Has he been taking lessons from Al Murray? 😯
Actually, it WAS France!

Well, how does that work then? You can't consummate such a marriage for starters, or hold conversations or dine with your spouse. I assume it's an undertaking that only a thoroughly religious person would consider, as a promise that he or she would live celibate for the rest of his or her life and be happy together with the spouse in the next life. How very devoted you'd have to be to do that. Rather romantic it could be argued, but I don't know anyone off hand who would do THAT!

Brad shouldn't always joke about his intellect and even his height; I don't think that any experienced actor such as Bradders is brainless - absolutely none. As for him being short, he shouldn't compare himself, if only subconsciously, to Mark Labbett and Shaun Wallace. They're simply HUGE, especially the former one.

Bradley gets 5ft8.5, which is a fine height. Some of his contestants look tiny next to him! 😁👍
Krystian Zimerman said on 30/Dec/20
I'd say he's about 5 ft 9

When you're as loaded as he is, it doesn't matter.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Dec/20
I've just seen Eric Bristow play on a Celebrity Chase. Next to Bradders - and everyone else for that matter! - Eric looked enormous, so I thought I'd check out his height. He hasn't got a page 😕, so I looked elsewhere.

Not only did I find his height to be 6ft4, but I found that he died 2 and three-quarter years ago. 😢 What a shock. He was 20 days short of his 61st Birthday, which was the 25th April. (1957)

Could Eric please have a page, Rob? As well as a famous darts champ and household name, I know he did a lot of great work for charity. Thanks Rob! 😁

I'm still watching The Chase, having had, and continuing to enjoy, a Chase- crammed Festive Season.

Brad gets 5ft8.5. 😆👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Dec/20
There's a really tall young chap on 'The Chase' just now who is 18 years of age. His name is Sean and he's a Scotsman from Glasgow. He plays a 'Chase' game with his mates and they have a Cheeky Bradley Rule which goes thus: every time Bradders says something naughty, no doubt bursting out laughing afterwards, all the boys have to drink their beverages down in one. I drink to that!
My Mum always said the Scots have a great sense of humour. She said that of the English as well, but NOT of her fellow Germans - quite the contrary in fact!

Sean has got through - a good, solid accomplishment for one so young.

Here Bradley: 5ft8.5. 😄

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Nov/20
Bradley was just talking to his new Chaser, Darragh Ennis. It was a question about football. Darragh replied that he LOVES football. Bradley added, "...and which team do you support?"

Darragh replied, "Liverpool!" to which Bradley said, "OF COURSE you do - you're Irish!" 😆⚽

This is the second time I've seen Darragh playing, and I like him very much. He looks about 5ft10 to me - but whatever the actual figure is, I can't see him standing a mere 5ft7 tall. That's the only figure I've found for him and that was somebody's guesstimate, which showed up on the internet today.

Bradders gets his usual 5ft8.5.
Ralph McNally said on 14/Nov/20
I've met Bradley and have appeared on the Chase. Brad is 5 8 and a half no doubt. He does wear Cuban heels though (at least when I was on the show) to boost his apparent height on camera. I am 5 10" and a half or so. Brad (with his heels) was a similar size to me on camera except you cant see his built up footwear.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Nov/20
You funny sausage, Brad!

There was a question on 'The Chase' just now which went as follows:

Which species of creature doesn't have antennae? The options were: 1) Molluscs, 2) Insects and 3) Mammals.

The lady, who was very bright and past middle-age, went for the third one: Mammals.

Bradley said to her, "But what do deers have? They're antennae, surely?"

The lady replied, "They're HORNS!" 🦌

Brad made a very funny, sulky face and said to the lady, "You made me look stupid on TV!" 😕😟

Chaser Paul Sinha was laughing 😂 as were the audience, 😂😂😂 and I found it so amusing that I thought I simply HAVE to tell you guys on Celebheights!

5ft8.5, but I heard him say the other day that he's 5ft8, so he clearly doesn't go in for fractions.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Oct/20
Here we go again.....😆👌

On today's Chase, a contestant was given three writers' names and asked which author wished to remain anonymous with his writings.

The third name was Walter Plinge, and Bradley repeated it and was helpless with laughter. 😂😂😂

It came as no surprise that Walter Plinge was the guy who wished to remain anonymous. The contestant went for another name, no doubt thinking that Plinge was too obvious!

Bradley Wadley gets 5ft8.5. 😁👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Oct/20
There was a question on The Chase just now which went thus:-

In the book by Jill Tomlinson, which type of bird is Plop?

a) An owl
b) A pigeon or
c) A robin

The answer was a) an owl and I guessed it correctly as did Mark Labbett, but I reckon he KNEW it!

What a wonderful bird's name - PLOP 🙄 - and I didn't half laugh! Ideally, it should have been d) seagull; how many of us have been plopped upon by a greedy, chip-seeking seagull?


🦉 "Hi! My name is Plop!"

Bradders gets 5ft8.5.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/20
@ Rob - That's a LOT in my books!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/20
5ft6 Rob? Surely he was joking because 2 of his Chasers are so huge, Mark at 6ft6+ and Shaun at 6ft3. Next to those two, he must feel very small indeed!

Editor Rob
Yeah "We've been nominated for a TV choice award. We've made the shortlist. And we've made the shortlist because I'm only 5 foot 6."

I mean it's not a mis-translation, I watched the video to type it down exactly...I think he was joking a bit, well by bit I mean 2 inches
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Oct/20
I never thought I'd be writing this, but I'm going ahead with it anyway...

When there's a contestant on 'The Chase' who's much shorter than Brad, I like the way he looks down to communicate. I think it's rather sexy! It beats when the taller person literally bends down, which I've had a lot of in the past, and hated it! He's always honest when he doesn't know something and is as fascinated as a young boy on finding out new facts. So why should he lie about his height?

5ft8.5 😉👍
Editor Rob
It's interesting bradley rounded his height down to 5ft 6 😲 I mean he can look 5ft 8, but 5ft 6 must be an understatement!
Nik Ashton said on 8/Sep/20
There is a lady on 'The Chase' right now and she looks similar in height to Bradley Walsh! 😎🥒🎩
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Aug/20
This afternoon on an old Chase showing on the Challenge Channel, there was a question about the structure of a violin. The contestant was asked: what is the name of the squiggly openings (my words, not Brad's) incorporated into the stringed instrument? The options were:

a) The Z-Hole
b) The F-Hole (Brad starts smirking), or
c) The A-Hole

By the time option 'c' came up, Brad's face was a total mass of laughter. The elderly lady contestant went for 'A-Hole', and Brad came out with, "I didn't know you were that kind of girl!"

I'm sure lots of people watch The Chase for moments like this, but for me it's just a very welcome bonus. I defy anyone not to join in with Brad's, so funny!

5ft8.5 😆👏
Tall In The Saddle said on 29/Jul/20
Funny thing. I knew someone who swore that Bradley Walsh played "Mike" in THE YOUNG ONES. I told them it was a different actor who played "Mike", that actor being Christopher Ryan (who also has a page here). They couldn't be told. No way. LOL. Oh well. No harm, no foul. There is some fair resemblance but Christopher was a lot shorter at barely over 5 feet.
Had the same thing re Norm from CHEERS played by George Wendt. A friend swore blind that Norm was played by the facially similar but very much larger John Goodman.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jul/20
@ Clark - I never knew that Brad's an Arsenal fan. I'll be sure to tell my boyfriend, who will be most impressed, being an Arsenal fan himself!

Cheers, Clark! 😃👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jul/20
It's not often that you see Bradley speechless, but it happened just now.

When Brad asked which Chaser a male contestant wished to take on, he replied, "I'd like to take down some frosty knickers..." 😲 referring to Anne Hegarty, whose nickname is 'Frosty Knickers', but is a really nice, warm human being and clever and quick-witted with it.

Well, on came Shaun Wallace instead. I doubted that it would be Anne because she had just been the Chaser in another game, beating the two successful contestants, one of whom had bravely battled his way to winning a potential £50,000. They didn't win with their 17 correct answers, but Anne congratulated them nonetheless, especially John, the fellow who had done so well, which makes him a winner in my eyes regardless.

There's no need to be so downright rude on this feel-good quiz. In future, leave the humour to Bradley, who's just like an innocent little schoolboy with his infectious laughter - and the Chasers themselves, to whom the laughter comes naturally.

Bradley stared in open-mouthed amazement and I gulped with shock. The contestant, who must have been sixty something, didn't have to embarrass one of the treasured Chasers like that. It was rude and unnecessary, and looked very much as though it had been badly pre-rehearsed.

I've enjoyed two of Brad's 'Law and Order UK' showings this week, and Brad is a really good actor as well as one of my favourite quiz masters. He acts with the niece of the late Sir Christopher Lee, Harriet Walter. I thought she looked familiar, having played the central character in a particularly harrowing 'Inspector Morse', in which she starred as a prison officer on a mission of revenge, entitled 'The Day of the Devil'.

The multi-talented Bradley gets 5ft8.5.
Clark said on 26/Jul/20
It doesn’t matter how tall he is but I met him on the underground and was quite surprised how small he was I stood next to him and I am not too tall either at 5.9 but I stood at least 3 inches taller.

I am going 5ft 6 inch for Brad, who incidentally is a really nice guy and fellow Arsenal fan.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Jul/20
There's a lady on 'The Chase' right now who has a lisp. She's impressively clever and has answered a question correctly which Anne Hegarty didn't get. With a brain like hers, there's no reason why she shouldn't have led a highly successful life. Then she came out with the job she used to do: she was a primary school teacher, and we all know what little *iss-takers kids can be, don't we children?

Brad gets 5ft8.5 😃👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jun/20
On Brad's 9 o'clock Chase on Challenge this morning, there was a gentleman, Mike, who had a collection of 450 teddy bears 🐻 and a retired cattery 🐈 owner called Jacky. She wanted to buy her husband a boat for his Birthday. Brad asked her what he wanted to do with it, and she replied, "Sail in it!" 🚣‍♂️😆

Both cuddly contestants made it through to the final - hooray! 😄

The other night, there was a question on 'The Chase' as to the name of the weaver in the Shakespeare play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

The answer, of course, was Bottom. That resulted in the casting of my mind back to the fun I used to have at my Mum's expense regarding the Shakespearean play. I'd start reading Bottom's lines when we were playing cards, which really wound her up! But that's nothing! When I was about 8 or 9, every pastry baking Sunday, we'd be given a pastry ball to mould into whichever shape we pleased. One Sunday, after Sunday school, one such session took place. I made a bottom out of my pastry ball! I'm not insulting anyone's intelligence by explaining what the sultanas were....
Let's just say, I got a spanking for it, but I was laughing so much that it didn't hurt a jot!

Fun-lovin' Brad can have 5ft8.5.

@ Sandy Cowell - I would love this to happen, if the producers of "The Chase" asked Nigel to come on the show I think he may oblige! I would love to meet Bradders and it would be great if Rob met him!

Anne Widdecombe would be a great addition to celebheights!

There was a contestant on "Beat The Chasers" just now and he was about Bradder's height!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Apr/20
This Chase is seriously entertaining! There's a very tall and attractive, blonde model-type Welsh girl playing and when I saw her, I thought "I hope Mark doesn't start up on the blonde leg-pulling!" 👱‍♀️🖕

He didn't have to! She scored just £2K in the cash build-up, and Mark Labbett said, "That was terrible!"

She's answered more questions, highly likely by luck than anything else in the next round, in which she chose to play for a pound, but she DID get through! I can't make my mind up who's taller; the girl or Brad.

Hooray! The blonde, the redhead and the French teacher have beaten the Chaser! Well done guys!

Braddles gets 5ft8.5. His posture is good.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Apr/20
@ Nik - It could happen if, perhaps one day, Nigel agrees to appear on a Celebrity edition of 'The Chase'! Ann Widdecombe did....

Hmmmm... I don't think she has a page here yet. I think she could be 4ft11 or so. She'd be the shortest of the Politicians, too!

Bradley gets his usual 5ft8.5 and a thumbs up emoji for consistently making me laugh!

It is likely he has lost a fraction by now, so could measure around same range.

Bradley’s has been in stitches again, this time laughing at a Michael Jackson impersonator! I must admit, it was very funny, but good nonetheless. Trey Parker and Matt Stone might have wanted to borrow his voice for their song “Wishing Tree”, from their comedy take on the singer in “South Park”! Now that was FUNNY!

Brad gets 5ft8.5.

There was another funny question on today's Chase! The contestant was asked the name of the whiskey capital of the World. The three possibilities were:-

a) Dufftown
b) Rufftown or
c) Gufftown

The player, who'd built up quite a rapport with Bradley, said to the s ing host, "I hope it's not Gufftown!" I was secretly hoping it was, but went with Dufftown, thinking of the alcoholic connotations of Homer Simpson's favourite lager. It was! 😭

Braddles gets 5ft8.5. There was a lady on a showing yesterday who made him look like an absolute GIANT!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/20
The other night, Brad was helpless with laughter AGAIN!

There was a question about what a court jester did on Christmas Day to entertain the King. (Henry II) 👑

The third answer was passing wind! The Chaser was Anne Hegerty and she got it right.

I was surprised that Brad hadn't heard of Roland the Farter, the name of whom wasn't mentioned, but I felt it should have been! Well, it's not something the average school teaches; there would have been uproarious laughter in any school, many of the kids mimicking the King's jester's party piece! He was rewarded handsomely, BTW! (Talk about a party pooper! 💩😄)

5ft8.5 for funny old Brad! 😂😂🤣💨

I'm sure Jenny Ryan is quite young but why does she sport such an old fashioned hair-style She looks absolutely ghastly with that beehive on top of her head. Exotic birds have more imagination.

This guy looks average!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jan/20
There was a young lady Chase contestant on an old showing just now who played for £30,000 and GOT THROUGH! She was noticeably taller than Bradley, so I put her at 5ft10.5-11. He doesn't mind at all! I've noticed he's got the confidence to look up to anyone, whether it's a she or a he....

Bradders gets 5ft8.5.👩🧔👨🙃
Nik said on 16/Jan/20
@ Terence Perring - The average is not so high!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jan/20
Bradley just witnessed a lady player on 'The Chase' named Carolyn accumulate £20K singlehandedly. She was the only player to make it through to the final against Mark Labbett and her performance wasn't quite good enough to have her win, but she was a winner in my eyes regardless. So impressive was this lady, standing there with her light-brown hair tied in a ponytail and her height considerably shorter than Bradley's, that she made me think, "You don't have to be tall to make a difference! Just good at what you do - and believe in yourself."

Both Bradley and Mark offered her their congratulations. I won't be forgetting her in a hurry. 🏅😁👍

Bradders gets 5ft8.5.

There have been some extra funny questions on The Chases tonight, causing uproarious laughter. One of them was, "In Germany, what is the cartoon character Andy Capp better known?"

The possibilities were:-

a) Dick Tingeler
b) Helmut Schmacker or
c) Willi Wakker?

Bradley was laughing more and more with each answer. The correct one was c). I, of course, didn't laugh because I didn't understand them! 🤞🙅‍♂️🤞

Braddles gets 5ft8.5. 😂😂😂
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Dec/19
The next contestant, Jane, is quite a bit taller than Bradley. I've checked and she wears flat shoes. I'd put her at around 5ft10.5 or just under.

Bradley clearly doesn't give a hoot! He's leaning on the cash builder pokey-outy thing with his legs crossed as he looks up to the leopardskin-clad dance teacher! 🐆😂

Good on you, Brad! 👍👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Dec/19
There's a guy on Bradley's 'The Chase' right now and if he wins any money, he wishes to buy a cow because he has a nice, big field. 🐄

Typically, Bradley expressed an interest in the subject, and said, "I don't know what to look for when it comes to buying a cow. How much is a cow?"

The contestant replied, "It depends on the quality and type of cow."

I knew it was coming, but Brad added, "Preferably one with two legs!" 😃

The fellow, Mike, makes Bradley look quite tall with his 5ft8.5. He's kept his height very well, but one mustn't forget that he used to be a footballer and should know everything and anything about keeping fit. I've never seen him carrying even a few surplus pounds. Now he is an actor too, and that must keep him fit.

Yes, still 5ft8.5 for Bradders! 🐮🤠
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Oct/19
Was Bradders in 'Dr Who'? Well I never knew that! It's amazing what you learn on Celebheights!

5ft8.5. He towers over some the female Chase contestants - and some of the male ones. He's always mentioning people's heights, so it's definitely a subject that's close to his heart. I've grown to really like him! He's so funny and you can tell he knows the answers to many of the questions. The other day, a man corrected his grammar, and he knew alright what was grammatically correct and what wasn't. For a little while he spoke 'properly' and what at one time I found slightly annoying for a quizmaster, I now respect; he's being true to his roots!

He may be about Rob’s height nowadays, or slightly less!
FiveEightJake said on 28/Sep/19
Rob is Bradley definitely still this tall? He looks kind of short on the chase but maybe it’s the camera angle. He strikes me as more of a weaker 5’8 guy.

Average guess is exactly the same as my low though so I’d probably be similar to him. 5’8 on the nose from me.
Editor Rob
A 1/4 inch loss at his age isn't entirely improbable.
Nik Ashton said on 27/Sep/19
There was a young man and a young woman on “The Chase” yesterday and they were both about the same height as Bradder’s!
Nik Ashton said on 26/Sep/19
It would be great to be photographed with him!
Nik Ashton said on 26/Sep/19
I’m sure that I heard (or read it!) that he once claimed to be 5’8” on The Chase! He is not small at all!
Nik Ashton said on 19/Sep/19
His son Barney is listed as 5’7” on several sites!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Aug/19
Bradley's had the giggles again!

A woman was asked which Carry On film Fort Zoissantneuf came from. It took a few seconds to click, but when it did...😂😂😂😂♋

I got it wrong! I went for 'Carry On Loving'! I believe it was 'Carry On Follow That Camel', but I was too busy laughing along with Bradders to remember 💯%!

Lately, Bradley's been looking rather tall; there have been quite a few shorties on 'The Chase'.

Today he gets 5ft8.5.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Jun/19
There was a question just now on 'The Chase' as to what Beethoven's first name was. The contestant didn't know. Braddles said Ludwig, but in Germany it's pronounced LudVIG! 😝

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/19
On 'The Chase' right now, there's a little woman called Vee standing next to Bradley in flats and she makes him look huge! Her brainpower isn't miniscule though....

She's just got through with £23,000! Bradley gets through at 5ft8.5. Yes, it's voting time again! 😉👍
Nik said on 11/Apr/19
He is probably Rob's height at most nowadays!
Littlelee168cm said on 23/Jan/19
His son barney is listed 5ft 7 and sometimes looks shorter than Bradley then other photos appears taller my guess is 5ft 7ish is right and Bradley may be shrinking in his late 50s
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jan/19
Bradley played a large part in my Festive entertainment, as the 'Challenge' Channel' showed loads of episodes every day, and I couldn't stop watching them!

One dark evening, I turned over to BBC1, only to find Bradley was starring in an episode of 'Doctor Who'! It would seem there was no escaping him!

This funny quiz host, yet serious actor gets 5ft8.5.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Dec/18
I have noticed how much knowledge Bradley is gathering up as quizmaster in 'The Chase'! He is such a bubbly, fun fellow to host the show, making it that much more enjoyable. I have simply FEASTED on this quiz throughout the Festive Season, which has been on the 'Challenge' Channel each and every day.
Good on you Bradders!

Sandy Cowell said on 24/Dec/18
Bradley was in fits of giggles today because there was a contestant getting question after question right - and they were nearly all guesses! After each correct answer, she did a little dance! Even Anne was having to suppress the laughter!

Bradley stands well and could pass for a touch taller than his actual 5ft8.5. I've also thought that while watching him on 'Law and Order UK'. It's hard to think they're one and the same guy sometimes because of the contrast of personalities!

Terence Perring said on 23/Dec/18
He looks shorter than most of his male guests. I thin he was 5'8'' max bu is nearly 60 so will maybe have lost half an inch or so. I reckon he's 5'7.5'' Under average if not short. They say the average guy is 5'10'' but I'm 5'11'' and most guys in the hospital where I work are taller than me, i feel short! Average height must be 6'1'' in there and in society, I think it's nearer 6ft these days.
Littlelee168cm said on 31/Aug/18
He was 9 inches taller than 4ft 11 Lucy porter in an episode of the chase 5ft 8 on the dot sounds accurate
Quoter86 said on 15/Aug/17
A celebrity on the chase kept making fun of him for being short. Forgot her name, a black lady in her 30s. Anyone know? Seems odd that she ridiculed him given a third of men are 5'8.5 or shorter. I suppose it's proof of just how high standards, pun intended, some women have when even men at this height are seen as short!

Spot on listing for Bradley.
Anonymous said on 24/May/17
24th of May 2017,tonight at the London palladium on itv. Bradley was 2 inches shorter than 5ft 9 Brian Conely.....
Nik said on 24/Mar/17

Well yes I was right about Jenny Ryan being under 5'8", I always thought that 5'7" was right for her. Like you I thought that Shaun Wallace was 6'2" and I was surprised to see him down as 6'3". I also think you could be right about Mark Labet's height but I am less sure about how tall Paul Sinha and Anne Hegerty are though. Yes it's good to see Jenny and Shaun added, I wonder if there will ever be a full house of "Chasers" on here?

Mark said on 21/Mar/17

Yes you're right, in fact Rob has just added the height of Jenny & Shaun :)
Nik said on 8/Mar/17

I think some of these may be too high. I think Jenny Ryan could be 5'7" as opposed to the 5'8" that you said.
Mark said on 3/Feb/17
Here are my guesstimates for the chasers

'The Beast' Mark Labbett - 6'6
'Dark Destroyer' Shaun Wallace - 6'2
'The Sinahman' Paul Sinah - 5'8.5
'The Governess' Anne Hegerty - 5'6.5
'The Vixen' Jenny Ryan - 5'8

Rob would you agree with those estimates?
Blake said on 29/Jan/17
Have you ever considered going on a show like the chase? I think with your extensive knowledge on random trivia to do with celebs it would be worth a go, maybe mention celebheights on there also!
Editor Rob
if I was going to do that, I'd try something like Bargain Hunt!
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/17
It's funny to think that this is the same actor in 'Law and Order UK' when he's doing his stunt as quizmaster on 'The Chase'! I like it when he can't stop laughing at rude things!
Sometimes, he surprises me with what he actually knows on this quiz and at other times I squirm at his bad grammar. Being a quizmaster, he ought to know better!
I have to admit that Bradley is very open about his height and age! That makes him seem a good, solid, trustworthy person! What you see is what you get and balls to you if you don't like it!
I think he just tops the 5ft8.5 he admits to.
Csimpson 6ft said on 1/Oct/16
Im not sure on Bradley but he is somewhere in the 5ft 8 range, im going to go with 5ft 8.25
Editor Rob
nowadays he looks a rough 5ft 8, but his football 5ft 8.5 listing, it's kinda believable.
Nik said on 24/Sep/16
Between 5'7.5 and 5'8-5. In general society he is an average sized bloke or slightly under but not short. For men I would say:

Short - under 5'7
Under average - 5'7 - 5'8
Average - 5'8 - 5'10
Above Average - 5'10 - 5'11
Tall - 5'11 - 6'2
Very Tall - 6'2 +
Quoter 987 said on 14/Sep/16
He gets a lot of short jokes from various contestants on The Chase. Pretty obscene as he's in average range, it's sub 5'8 where you are short but not 5'8.5". It's usually women who mock him and he's taller than them which makes it all the more ludicrous.

Anyway this listing seems spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
Rob, also had a lengthy stint on Coronation Street...
Johno said on 27/Apr/16
No taller than Peter Andre.

movieguy said on 16/Apr/16
Seen Mark Labbett in person on a few occasions. He is massive 6'6'' to 6'7'' very broad shouldered. This is one guy who does not exaggerate his height.
Y2A said on 7/Jul/15
Shaun Wallace looks 6'2" range next to Labbett.

Rob, would you consider adding Labbett since he's openly claimed a height himself?
i turn lesbians bi said on 15/Dec/14
Click Here how tall would shaun wallace be compared to bradley?
Editor Rob
the guy Mark Labbett Here says on twitter he's 6ft 6, I would have said the chase guy had about 6-6.5 inches on walsh.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 15/Jun/12
Rob there was an episode of "The Chase" and a question "How tall is the middle of the net in tennis?" 3 foot, 4 foot or 5 foot.
Walsh then said "Well Im 5ft 8, so its not going to be 5ft is it?"
downgrade needed
Manitobaboy said on 17/Apr/08
The characters on Corrie are usually taller and younger than the actors who play them. That is a show with a very average (if not less than average) height range. Very few actors are 6' (Dev and Kirk are close) and Walsh would have been moderately taller than most - approximating a 5'10" height on the show.

I've watched that show since I was kid - it was a staple of my grandmother. Being Canadian and of British heritage, there's something about it's raw humour and blue collar smalltown-ness which is appealing.

Johnny Briggs is a small man. He was on a Canadian Talk Show (The Hour) promoting donations for Altzheimers and he was at least three inches shorter than George, the host who's only 5'8."

Bill Roache, (Linus's dad) another staple on that show, is not big either - I think he may even have shrunk to 5'7.5"

Cheers, mates.
Robert.R said on 19/Jan/07
She was describing the character, not the actor. I agree with Anonymous, 5'7".
Mike said on 5/Jan/07
According to "Frankie" on Coronation street while they were looking for him, she described him as 5'10''
Anonymous said on 19/Dec/06
I worked with him for a year he's 5'7
Earl said on 6/Aug/06
I agree with Justin. Maybe 5'8" but never 5'9".
Justin said on 29/Jul/06
I'm a photographer for a local newspaper and took lots of photo's of Bradley for a panto launch. He is about 5'8... No more than that. I'm 5'7 and he was hardley any taller than me, and I had flat shoes on.
Paul said on 5/May/06
Could be...I was going by Johnny's height given on here.
Paul said on 22/Mar/06
Looks about 5'10 in Coronation Street if Johnny Briggs is 5'6 1/2.
Martin Holmes said on 25/Feb/06
Im sure i read in an article that he's 5"8
Alan said on 24/Feb/06
He was dwarfed by that Richard Fleeshman when he was on Des and Mel. Does anyone know Fleeshman's height?
