Saw Fightstar in 2008 and Charlie jumped into the crowd halfway through the show. Wasn't sure if he was on tip toes, stood on an elevated platform or just stood normal but I had to look up at him at quite an angle, Im just under 6'1''. Remember that I was really shocked at how thin he was. Looked like he had a huge head though in comparison to his body.

Rob, what would you say is more likely just under 6'4 or just over?
I'd just say an honest 6ft 4, I doubt 6ft 3.5 or 4.5, but can see plus or minus a smaller fraction as possible.

I'm willing to be that Rob would be at chin level or under on this guy.

. the difference between him and matt willis looks like a minimum of 6 inches, just look at the shoulder level difference.

This guy is not under 195cm

@sa344 Yes, James is very similar to Matt. Normally Matt used to wear ticker soles. James could be 178 or 178.5 cm tall. Tom Fletcher 179 or 179.5 (he claims 5'11), similar to Harry Judd. Danny Jones 177

James is taller than I thought, he looks just under 5'11''
Johnson said on 13/Nov/16
James and Matt are very close. James could be 178 cm exactly 5'10.

I dont get any guess below 190cm.
Anywhere between 193 to 194cm.

Someone who's 189-190 wouldn't be shocking unless you're under say 5'7 or 5'8. This guy is around 195cm minimum from what I've seen of him next to other people.

Literally just saw him on church street. With the rest of the band. Shocked at how tall he was but I wouldn't have put him at 193 I would have gone more 189/190 from what I saw. Still a tall guy though

6+ inches on Matt Willis if you look at candid photos and not press. The same in regards to him with Phillip Schofield. I think this guy is rounding down.
there are some camera angles that can certainly make him look very tall, one like This
, can make him over 6ft 4.

6'3"-6'4" would be my guess, looks at least 4 inches taller than Matt Willis and towers his bandmates in Fightstar.

He is my friend he is 1.89 cm

He was on C4 Sunday Brunch last week and was at least a head taller than the presenter. When asked, he said "six four, six five". He made them look tiny.
Big Boss Dawg said on 24/Jan/12
Yeah I met him after a Fightstar gig and he's massive definitely at least 6"4
matt said on 7/Jun/11
he claimed in 2009 he was 6,5 but i actually think he is 6,4.5.... maybe but i might be wrong
Doug said on 31/May/09
Wow this guy has definately grown. If he is taller than Vernon Kay he is definately near 6'5". He seems to have grown 2-3 inches between 17 and 21, which is not unusual.As if though his 6'2" at 17 wasn't tall enough eh?
Doug said on 31/May/09
I noticed he was 6'3" on the busted cover but that was in shoes agianst the height chart. I thought he was more like 6'2" barefoot personally. 6'5" is absurd surely?
micki said on 14/Feb/09
well i met charlie last night and he was definately huuuuge. I'm 5ft 4in and he was definately over a foot taller than me.
Nate said on 6/Sep/08
The video Rod posted shows him saying himself that hes 6 5, doubt he would lie about his height when hes that tall
jason said on 15/Aug/08
I think that when he was on bo slecta he looked about 6,3 and he has maybe grown 2 inches in the past 3 years so he might be 6,5 now.
Kurt said on 19/Apr/08
I have a friend who had his photo taken with him recently. My friend is a solid 6'4'' and Charlie was noticeably taller. He must be at very least 6'4.5".

I saw him at the airport last week and was stunned at how tall he was. I'm exactly 6'3" barefoot and estimated him at 6'6". So I came here to find out for sure and saw 6'4". He is way over that. I guess he is still growing.
prs said on 17/Feb/08
yeah he is 6'5'' I knew that before!

Ex- Busted fan! said on 9/Jan/08
To Delonge of Angels and airwaves is 6" 4' and I didn't think that Charlie was the same height - that's just crazy! He is supposed to be 6" 5' now - how has he grown 3 inches from 17 years old - that guy has an insane amount of growth hormones! I would love to be 6ft but 6ft 5 is just madeness! I know guys can grow til 25 - so if he keeps growing then he could be 6 ft 9!
luella said on 8/Jan/08
he IS 6'4" !! I know for a fact because I asked him!!
rod said on 24/Dec/07
we need rob or glenn to take a foto with him. Im convinced hes in the 6'5'' range.
Arth said on 20/Dec/07
When the self titled album "Busted" was released, he was 17. He's shown on the front cover in a mock-police-lineup thing, reaching about 6'2"
Granted he isn't standing up straight, but he's also wearing shoes that look to add around an inch to his height.
I find it hard to believe that he's gained 3" at age 17.
rod said on 17/Dec/07
he was on nevermind the buzzcocks lastnight and completely dwarfed bill bailey and phil jupitus. very tall dude
Suzannah said on 8/Dec/07
I don't think he's really that tall. Yes, he might be tall compared to other people, but we are a growing nation and pretty soon I reckon that a lot of other men will be that tall.
rod said on 22/Aug/07
I dont know how tall the other fightstar members are but im guessing that the tallest 1 after charlie is alex who i think is around 5'11". Anyone know
said on 9/Jul/07
well rob, are there any pics?
[Editor Rob: I've not really looked]
6'3'' JK said on 9/Jul/07
Rob if you can, can you post some pictures showing that this guy has become 6'4''?
Patrick said on 12/Dec/06
this guy is huge!!! my sisters obsessed with him and when busted had a gig in germany she met him. i am 1,94 cm and she said that he's definitely taller than me. so i think he's no under 6'5'' maybe even a bit taller
rod said on 25/Aug/06
i think hes grown again. Did you see him lastnight at the kerrang awards, he was absolutely huge!
rod said on 22/Jul/06
i think hes closer to 6"5 now. remember hes only just turned 21
rod said on 15/Jul/06
seemed to be slightly taller than vernon kay, so i think hes probably closer to 6'5''.
fightstar fan said on 19/Nov/05
this guy is an absolute giant!
Clark said on 16/Nov/05
He is 6"5 i asked him when i saw him in London
German Maria said on 24/Oct/05
I once saw him at a ward show in germany at the red carpet.he and a lot of other stars walked pass me and I gotta say that he's huge!!!He towered over all the other stars and I'd say he's at least 6'3" but 6'4" is also quite possible
