Can look a decent 6ft1 ranger to me but doesn’t have great posture. The 5ft11 and 6ft guesses are just silly though

Rob, which of these is arguable?
The guesses for this guy are all over the place (5ft11 to 6ft3!) but I’ll settle on C. I think he’s claimed 6ft2
I'd stick with around C...I struggle to see him as tall as 6ft 2 or much under 6ft 1.

I have met this expert many times at his auction house he is 6'0 the same height as me.

I asked a couple of Antiques experts on bargain hunt I have met over the years about Charles hanson height and I get different answers. Antia Mannning said he was 5'11.5" Natasha Raskin told me 6'2" and Paul LaidIaw From what he told me also he too is 6' tall, that seems to be correct. Plus Paul and Charles both look the same height. My best guess would be Charles is a solid 6 footer.

Hi to all that have posted and will continue to post! My Brother who is 47 works on BBC Bristol and has met a lot of production workers who have met Charles Hanson as well as stood right next to him during the filming of Bargain Hunt and Antiques Roadtrip. My Brother is 6'1 '' flat footed.The production workers my brother met have Charles is somewhat the same height as my brother or just a smidge taller. I was interestingly reading his twitter accounts when someone asked him how tall he is.Charles replied"6-1.5". "Without a doubt. He is at least 6-1". If you're 6'1 and 1/2 inch' he probably just says 'I'm 6'2!.

I've seen Charles in person and guessed him as being 6'1.5 certainly somewhere between 6ft1-6ft2 so I think 6ft1.5 has to be close.
He was on the other day beside a guy who said 6ft 3-4 and arguably Charles could look anywhere in 6ft to 6ft 1 range.

I was watching him yesterday on a new series of the Antiques Roadtrip and in one of the antiques shop there was a man who said he was 6'3 and Charles said he was 6'1.5. There was even a tweet from Charles when someone asked him his height barefoot and he said 6'1.5. I think he should upgraded to 6'1.5 as there are multiple times Charles has said this height!.
Jazza88 said on 13/Sep/18
Can't Believe some of the comments about him being 5'10-5'11 that is laughable!!. He always looks a couple of inches taller than Tim Wonocott who said he was 5'11 once on Bargain Hunt. Charles is easily 6'1 if not 6'2 feet. He always looks quite tall on those antiques programmes . He wouldn't be under 6'0. I would guess around 6'1.5 I think Rob your 6'1 listing is quite fair.
Elvisfan77 said on 4/Sep/18
Easily two or more inches shorter than Danny Sebastian who claims to be 6'3 , he doesn't have the proportions of a 6'2" guy by any means, more a strong 6'0.5"
Elvisfan1 said on 28/Aug/18
Elvis35 I agree with 5'11.5" seems pretty likely.Anything under that is too low,but it doesn't seem like he is over 6'0 especially next to David Harper !!!.
Elvis35 said on 25/Aug/18
vika89 I would be very surprised if Charles was as tall as 6'1 or 6'2. I have seen that Celebrity Antiques Roadtrip with Anton Du Beke I don't think there was much difference between them, he was on another Celebrity Antiques Roadtrip with Richard Madeley who is 6'2 and he looked a few inches taller .He is smaller than you imagine, and I think his slim frame helps him appear taller in photos or on camera, he is only about 5'11 1/2".
vika89 said on 22/Aug/18
I've seen him up close twice and I think 6ft2 is a good shout, but I wouldn't put him over that mark I don't think. He just looks too tall to be under 6ft2. Very surprised to see him being guessed less than that!
said on 18/Aug/18
Rob I was watching a old Celebrity Antiques Roadtrip with him and the Ballroom dancer Anton Du Beke who is listed online as 5'11 Do you know his height ? Charles did look about 2 inches taller than him, so I think Charles is about 6'1. The 6'2 claim could have been in shoes?
Du Beke could be a strong 5ft 11 range, though he claimed to be six foot tall.
said on 31/Jul/18
Have you heard of Kate Silverton BBC News presenter she is listed at 5'10, I just been watching a old celebrity Antiques Roadtrip with her and Charles and I see no more than 2 inches between them. For me, this is bulletproof evidence that he is around 5-11.5- 6'0 because he and her wearing low healed footwear and she is an actress with an actual listed height, not hearsay or " I met so and so 10 years ago." Please can you review this episode on youtube, I don't want to judge you but I don't think Charles is 6'1 let alone 6'2!!
Well here is a clip of them on the show Click Here
. I am sure Hanson is more than 2 inches taller.

I met him when he opened his new saleroom in Etwall Derbyshire ". I'm 5'11" with my shoes on & was eye-to-eye with him. Charles is not even 6ft.
federer81 said on 5/Jun/18
I doubt Bronson that a 5'8 would wear heels I think it adds up with Natasha being around 5'8" or slightly under and Charles being somewhere between 6'0.5"-6'1". I don't doubt the 6'2" Charles claimed on a antiques road trip episode a few years ago was roughly his height in the shoes I would be very surprised if Charles was under 6'0.5 looks on TV to be 6'2 plus that's just his lean posture !
azarenka1989 said on 30/May/18
do wonder if Natasha Raskin wears heels on TV Charles might actually be just 6' 6'0.5 would be the perfect listing for him, imo. It's the most reasonable to me as he could look anywhere between 6'0-6'1. Either way, a desirable height and talented auctioneer and expert with a great sense of humour
massey1948 said on 21/May/18
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover you should know, having claimed previously you met him during a flog it filming in Windsor in 2017 ?,but wasn't he closer to five-ten-and half than six feet one ? someone has mentioned a picture of him with Johanna konta who rob lists at 5'10 while WTA list her 5'11 for argument's sake lets call konta 5'10.5 well Charles look very similar in height ! I must admit. Charles did in fact did say 6'1 on an antiques road trip. Never imagined him as being particularly that tall, never I always as a average sort of gentleman like 5'11 . I'd bet he is somewhere in the 5'10"-5'11 " range. I cannot see Charles as 6'1 !!!
herongate2018 said on 20/May/18
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover I agree, I have actually met Charles earlier this month in Ballybricken in Ireland where he was doing a charity auction in memory of the late Dolores o' Riordan, I am 185cm 6'1 and we were around the same height could have been a fraction taller I would say without a doubt 6'1-6'1.5 range, lovely fellow and a fantastic auctioneer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/18
182cm is a joke. 185cm easily…
o'riordan said on 28/Apr/18
He is 182-183cm because I am that height and were eye to eye when I met him at a flog it valuation he is not 6'2
cranberries1971 said on 4/Mar/18
Rob He can’t be 6’1 . I saw him on a repeat of the antiques roadtrip celebrity version with ballroom dancer Anton du beke clearly he did not look much taller and Anton is around 5'11 I would think Hanson is 6'0
shannon said on 8/Jan/18
I've met Charles twice. I am 5ft 10 and he was taller than me. I came up to the middle of his forehead so I would say he was 6ft1-6ft2
brundle said on 8/Oct/17
brundle I saw gentleman close recently in Windsor filming a flog it I think Anyhow, I met him in person, shook his hand Im 185-186cm, he was definitely slightly shorter than me. Probably closer to 6ft even.
mick 198cm said on 6/Oct/17
I think 6ft1 on the nose is better for him There isn't much light between a 6ft 1 man and a 6ft 1.5 man. I would be so shocked if this man as high as 6ft 2, I think body type can make you look taller than you actually are. I mean he is very lanky and slim built and I think that can make him look taller, never really towers anyone on TV
Rob has him as listed, I can't wait for him to get Gyllenhaal'd in the future.

Hi Rob this will be of interest, I am not sure if this was a youtube video or a website, I wish I had made reference to the link, Charles Hanson was visiting a six form college and he was giving a talk about antiques, he was joking about the microphone stand being too high for him, he said something like What up this mic stand, This is for someone 6'6, I am 6'1.5, do you want me to see if I could find this and post a link for you to watch and listen, I think he must be 6'1.5 do you think you could list him as 6'1.5 now as opposed to 6'1 ?
Editor Rob: all I've heard is one time Charles saying he was 6ft 1, and Jonathan Pratt saying near 5ft 11. But it would be interesting if he did claim 6ft 1.5 though!
said on 22/Sep/17
I think he is 6ft 2 range, if Natasha raskin is 5'8 looking at them when they are on bargain hunt she could look a good 6 inches shorter. I would say 6'1-6'2 above average male height for sure and a lovely chap love watching him on television ace personality
Editor Rob: there was an episode of celebrity bargain hunt I believe with Raskin and Peter Duncan. She was taller, I'd have put her 172-3 range...but sometimes on that show she doesn't stand tall and bends knees at times.
Anonymous said on 16/Sep/17
it's possible he's more 6'0 than 6'2. lots seem to think 6' is short or something and because like Charles who is very lean and lanky Must be well over it. I have a friend who is 6' and he is very similar body wise to Charles very lean and people always guess at 6'2, I mean when I see him on bargain hunt for example he never looks to me to be over 6'0, but I am only guessing I don't think he is over 6'1
barlow said on 10/Aug/17
watching a episode of celebrity antiques road trip with Anton du beke who is listed at 5'11 although he has asserted himself 6'0 he appears to be 2-3 inches shorter than Charles hanson Say anton is about 5'11.5 and then that would make Charles at least 6'1.5 even up to 6'3 a bit of a stretch, I think Charles is 6'2 like he has claimed rather than 6'1 in my opinion .
courrier said on 24/Jul/17
He's just 184cm tbh, , seen him a lot of times over the years at antique fairs I am 187cm in shoes and I have walked right next to him a lot of times, he is no taller than me, I bet his height is 184cm His claim of 6'2 on that antiques road trip could have been in large footwear, I think this listing of 6'1 is fairly accurate to be more precise Editor rob you could list as 6'0.5
bentham said on 12/Jul/17
I think he is either 6'2 or just under. He struggles to look only 6'0 " and I think he at best looks 6'1 1/2".Looked close enough to get a 6ft 2listing here when next to Ballroom dancer Anton Du beke who is listed as 5'11 on a celebrity antiques Road trip it was repeated on channel 25 the other evening , he was easily 3 inches shorter than Charles quite a noticeable height difference . Looked more like a 6ft 2 guy than a 6ft range to me, quite a tall man
said on 10/Jul/17
6'1 is about right. I'm 6'3 and was comfortably taller than him when I met him at his showroom in Derby a very decent fellow passionate about antiques
Editor Rob: sorry to hear about your height shrinkage...2 inches is a lot 😆
"I am 6ft 1 ins tall and was eye to eye with stephen when I met him in 2007"

Hi Editor I found on twitter a interesting photo from last year at the Eastbourne tennis tournament with him with Johanna konta who you list at 5'10 while WTA list her 5'11 for argument's sake lets call konta 5'10.5 well Charles look very similar in height ! not more than 1 inch difference . His height claim , I must admit. Charles did in fact did say I 6'1 it was on antiques road trip it was repeated on channel 25 yesterday seems strange for something like that to come out of thin air from Charles on a BBC programme which will be watched by millions , to inflate his height by several inches I can't see him any taller than 6'0 TBH I think 5'11 could be his height there really is very little difference between him and Konta , His natural posture, however, is great on TV which helps him to look taller than he actually is . Never imagined him as being particularly that tall, never I always as a average sort of gentleman like 5'11 . I'd bet he is somewhere in the 5'11"-5'11.5" range. I cannot see Charles as 6'1 !!!
Editor Rob: why are you trying to use another user's name, you've tried it a few times.
It would certainly be interesting to find the photo, there is a little arrow on a tweet you can copy the link to the tweet, if you find it again, why not include the link and use a unique name 👍

I think that 6'0" - 6'0.5" is more realistic!
Nik said on 19/May/17
Nik said on 18/May/17
Nik I have seen this guy on television quite a bit recently and he definitely looked to be under 6'1" so as WeeburaiJones 6'0.5 seems fair seing him next to average men he does not look much taller how many votes are needed before you decide to upgrade/downgrade a celeb?
said on 17/May/17
Rob have you heard of the antiques expert Danny Sebastian rob, well he appears on bargain hunt now, in a newspaper interview he said he was 6'4 he looks it, he was with Charles Hanson on a new episode of bargain hunt the other day, well he did look to me to be quite a bit taller than Charles, I would think 6'1 is the absolute max could be even 6'0.5 ?
Editor Rob: yes, I've seen him in antiques shows, I remember not long ago he did a week with big JOnty, who is near 6ft 4, and he didn't seem much smaller, so Danny may well be 6ft 3 range.
and after I type this I checked his twitter and indeed he said "big ole size 12. I am 6" 3' tall"

He's over 2 inches shorter next to 6'2- 6'2.5 Richard madeley on the celebrity Antiques Road trip it was repeated on yesterday channel on TV the other day , so he's not quite 6'1
said on 3/Dec/16
rob could he be more than 6ft 1 my daughter met him recently at her sixth form college she said she was surprised how much taller he looked in real life than on those antiques shows she said he was around 6ft2 or 6ft3 the same height as one of her teachers, I would thought 6ft 1 he is quite a lean man so maybe looks taller than he does?
Editor Rob: Amy, he did claim 6ft 1 and from watching the show I'd have said that was his height.
