I'm 5'6" so sort of average ish....
I’m 5ft 6in and now I’m around nine or nine-and-a-half stone (I don’t know for certain because I haven’t weighed myself since 1999, when I threw out my scales). And I’m a 38D bra size these days.

At home I live in my trainers but when it comes to work or socialising I don't go anywhere without wearing heels.
They completely transform your posture and self–image. As I'm 5ft 6in I don't need skyscrapers but I do like to add at least three inches to my height.
I have a couple of pairs of Christian Louboutins which I love but to be honest I have pretty simple tastes and buy most of my shoes on the high street.

💐🎂🕯️ Belated Birthday Wishes... 🕯️🎂💐
...to Carol Vorderman, who turned 59 on Christmas Eve, hence her name! 🎄🎅
I can easily believe 5ft6.25. I did used to think she was 5ft7 exactly.

5'6" is tallish too!
Nik said on 1/Jan/19
@ Heidi - Your comments on this page are very interesting!
Nik said on 27/Dec/18
It's great that Carol never claimed to be 5'7", she is height honest just like Rob Paul!
I hope she had a good Birthday on Christmas Eve!
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Dec/18
I would love to see Carol standing with Rachel! I don't think there's much in it, height-wise!
They are both Capricornians, of that I'm almost certain! 🍌🐐 🍌🐐 🎁🔔🎁🔔

Have a great Christmas 🎄 and New Year too! 🔔

She is very tall at 5ft8 taller than most men
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Mar/17
@ Heidi - Hmm, yes, well-built where it matters the most!
Heidi said on 7/Mar/17
She is taller than the average woman she is well built
Heidi said on 27/Feb/17
She is tall for a woman or is it that I'm short
Heidi said on 26/Feb/17
I'm glad to be shorter than carol vorderman

Wow, even at her age, Carol is gorgeous. Great rack, there's a good ad for cosmetic surgery. I'd say a comfortable 5'6". Just fab.

Rob, would you call yourself 5ft8 and a little bit of pocket money?
yes Rampage, if I was being precise I might, but I have said 173cm a couple of times and was surprised the person didn't know what the feet/inch equivalent was.

Looks fairly tall but towered by Lisa Snowdon!
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Nov/16
...and I knew when someone let one go she'd be the first to laugh! It happened and she did - very loudly!
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Nov/16
I always thought of Carol as 5ft6.5 - 5ft7, so she's doing remarkably well to have only lost a smidgling! She is well into looking after herself, and her figure and little height loss (if at all) are a very satisfying result to say the least!
When I saw her on 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here' last Sunday at the onset of the show, I thought, "she'll be great fun! She might even win!"
A few days later, I'm even more of that opinion! She's hilarious and has the most infectious laugh! She hasn't lost any of her sparkle whatsoever and looks incredible! Even at 10 years younger, she'd still look great for that age - very girlish, in the nicest possible way!

@Jayne B 5ft 5 is no where near tiny for a woman, that's solid average height for women, and Carols definitely taller than just 5ft 5 I think she is 5ft 6 like she said she is, she's above average/tallish height for a woman I'd say.
said on 14/Oct/15
Wow she is smoking hot for her age Rob incredible body aswell, absolutely stunning, yeah I always thought 5ft 6 range is what she looked she's seems very honest, what do you think her morning height could be Rob?, maybe 5ft 7-7.5?
I'd certainly be up for finding out her morning height...
but possibly near 5ft 7 is possible, I think she is being honest when saying a bit of change over 5ft 6, I can believe she got measured at that mark
said on 16/May/13
Do you think she's about 175 cm in those heels, Rob?
that's probably the mark she'd measure in them

Just because a celebrity (or anyone else for that matter) describes himself/herself as a being particular height, it doesn't necessarily mean that s/he really is. Your last writer, Anonymous, is quite right; Ms Vorderman is only actually about 5'3 1/2"-5'4 1/2" tall, in spite of what she or her publicity agent may claim.
Anonymous said on 16/Feb/07
I'm with Jayne B on this one. There is no way Vorderman is 5' 6" or anywhere near it. I saw her many years ago coming out of the then TV AM building in Camden; she was wearing heels and I could see clear over her head! I am 5' 6" myself, so would place Carol at about 5' 3"-4" barefoot. The first I knew of her supposed height was a quote from her Detox book regarding her previous weight being too much for her height. I guess someone didn't want the world to know how overweight she really was.......

Today I read in a magazine called "The New You" in WH Smith some comments by Carol concerning her weight and the benefits of Detox. She said that her height is 5 feet 6 and a bit. The listed height is therefore pretty accurate.
Jabber said on 2/Jan/06
Pictured in Getty Images with 6'4'' Stephen Fry she is dwarfed by a good 8 inches and she has heels on.She is also shorter than 5'7'' Davina Macall so I'd put her at about 5'6'' but certainly no taller.If she said she's 5'6'' then why has she not been downgraded?

she did say 5ft6 on how 2
LIZ said on 6/Nov/05
IN CLOSER SHE WAS DESCRIBED AS HAVING A 5'7 FRAME IN THIS ARTICLE ABOUT HER DETOXING
Jayne B said on 30/Aug/05
No way is she more than 5'5''.
I stood behind her in a West End store and we both had flats on.I'm 5'11' and towered over her by at least 6 inches.I was amazed just how tiny she is.
