@ ChaosControl - Pukka means very good.

Chris De Burgh had an album entitled 'Don't Pay The Ferryman'.

It was an old superstition that, when somebody died, the ferryman, or Charon, would be paid to transport the dead person's spirit across the river which separates the world of the living from the world of the dead.

Pictures of corpses were taken as late as the 19th century, the eyes covered with coins. This would be payment for the ferryman. One film which depicts this is the chiller 'The Others', starring Nicole Kidman.

Chris gets 5ft5.75. πŸŽΆπŸŽ„πŸ“€

@Sandy what does pukka mean?
Editor Rob
That's definitely one word I rarely here in Scotland, but more in England.

I just played 'A Spaceman Came Travelling' a few times and sang my heart out!

The song hails from 1975. My brother came out with that fact; he has a memory for all things date-related, and I tend to remember the artists and song titles.


Chris might be small in stature, and the shortest Chris on Celebheights, but his voice is INCREDIBLE.

I heard Chris's beautiful Christmas song 'A Spaceman Came Travelling' on an old Christmas edition of EastEnders just now.

It was pukka! πŸŽΆπŸŽ΅πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€πŸŽ…πŸŽ„

I never knew Chris De Burgh was as short as this - until I came here, that is!

5ft6. 🎢😁🎡

Rob, don't be offended but I think a full 5ft 6 is a mistake for this guy even for his peak height. Take a look at his photos next to Alice Cooper from 2003: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Rosanna Davison is also in these photos, but we can't see her heels. De Burgh was 55 at the time and Cooper 55-56. Alice then looked even five inches taller than Chris. I think a full 5ft 10 or at least 5ft 9.75 for Cooper would be more fair and De Burgh was in the 5ft 5.5 maybe 5ft 5.75 range. Rob, I think you should change something because the 3.5 inch height difference between them is definitely not enough.
Editor Rob
yeah, there is a fair chance he isn't the height he claimed.

Wishing Chris a wonderful 71st Birthday. He seems to like his women tall and blonde!

5ft6. The two tall blondes make him seem quite tiny and I think this has had an affect on the average for Chris.

Chris de burgh is about 5'3. He was standing next to Judy Finnegan once, and she was a few inches taller than him (and she's about average height)

I'd say he is at most 5'4'', but he does have a beautiful daughter, thank God she got her looks from her mother.

Lady In Red ......She's Dancing With Me.......LOL

dutch hispanic guy said on 14/Aug/06
so his daughter, rosanna, is 5'11''..... hardly makes any sense.... how did he do that? to bring up a girl much taller than he is?

LOL wow, that takes me back. "Ferryman" was a great song.

My very bad attempt at humor. You remember "Don't pay the ferryman?" yea, I know it's a huuugggeee stretch...

Anybody get my attempt at humor? It's really bad...
sf said on 5/May/06

Glenn said on 5/May/06
Wow.Im bit of fan.
Henry Maguire said on 4/May/06
No way Chris De Burgh is 5'6". He was a neighbour of mine for years and we used to meet most mornings collecting our newspapers. 5 ft 4 in TOPS and that is being generous.

I think this guy is more 5'5" least nowadays...
