I am glad there has been a page set up for Caroline Aherne on this website. "The Royle Family" was always popular with both my parents and myself, it was a classic sitcom. I am now wondering about the heights of the other cast members and I will go and check to see which of them have got pages on here,

Thanks Rob - much appreciated!
I followed Caroline's career pretty closely, from 'Mrs Merton' and later, the off-shoot sit-com with her 'son' Malcolm (so funny!), 'The Fast Show' and, of course, 'The Royle Family'. There was nothing I didn't like!
Personally, I thought she was 5ft4 (I even read that somewhere), but Rob's 5ft3 estimate is a thousand times more likely than the 5ft9 that I've spotted below!
I will therefore go with 5ft3.5!

Here's a piece from the sit-com 'Mrs Merton and Malcolm': Mrs Merton's neighbour, played by Brian Murphy, says to her, "It seems like only yesterday that he was in short trousers!"
Mrs Merton replies, somewhat mystified, "No, that was on Sunday, when he was playing in the garden!"
Malcolm is her great big grown-up son, played by Craig Cash, who is still tied to his mother's apron strings and enjoying an extremely prolonged childhood!
It might be interesting to find out Craig Cash's height! He must be about 6ft! Over to you Rob, if you'd be so kind...
