Actually, Chris looks quite a bit taller than a flat 5ft8, and the average vote reflects this. Personally, I think he could pass for 5ft8.5 or even more. Black isnโ€™t only a slimming colour, it would seem it flatters oneโ€™s height as well.

Itโ€™s Tommyโ€™s Grandfatherโ€™s 65th Birthday in Classic Coronation Street. Tommyโ€™s father, Terry, played by Nigel Pivaro, has sent him a card which reads. โ€œHappy 65th Birthday. Wish you were here!โ€

He wrote it from prison, the stinker! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Poor old Jack!

Only Tommyโ€™s grandparents could end up having a ruck after Vera, much to her relief, realises that husband Jack hasnโ€™t been blown up when the shed explodes! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Vera, played by Elizabeth Dawn, always looked at least 5ft7 to me.

Chris gets 5ft8.25. He has a good physique, and could pass for more.

The Street is in shock over the death of Judy Mallett. Terry Dodgeworth sold his mother a faulty car, resulting in a minor crash while she (Vera) was driving the thing, with Judy in the passenger seat. Judy was injured, thereafter dying suddenly - I think from an aneurysm. ๐Ÿ˜ช

Poor boy (in Coronation Street, of course!) being lumbered with a father like Terry Duckworth! ๐Ÿ˜–

In actual fact, Chris looks taller than a standard 5ft8. That's what a bit of forethought can do when it comes to dressing. I think he's achieved the look of a guy of nearly 5ft10.

Tommy's grandfather called his grandmother 'his little blowfly' this afternoon, when she thanked him for his bouquet of flowers to celebrate their anniversary! ๐Ÿ’

But blowflies are DISGUSTING, and have to be my least favourite insects... ๐Ÿคฎ

Chris Fountain is more than a flat 5'8, i would have him at 5'8.75, he was always a fraction taller than 5'8.5 Ryan Thomas, on Coronation street, Rob Chris needs an upgrade 5'8 flat is way too low for Chris.

His Grandmother, Vera, this morning talking to her husband Jack:

"If you think I'm going with you with your flies open and your shirt hanging out...."

Sounds like someone I know! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜‚

@ CD I agree Chris looks a sturdy 5ft8.25. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

@Sandy Cowell
Yes I could buy 5โ€™8.25 as another good guess for him, in fact I think both him and Ryan might measure around that mark. If Rob ever got a photo with one or both of them , I believe they would struggle to look taller..

@ CD - Hi! I've just come from Ryan Thomas's page and found out that we have you to thank for Chris Fountain's sudden appearance; well researched indeed! I find that if a Celeb is slim and there is a full length picture on his or her page, that person can often appear taller.

I'm going with 5ft8.25.

I would at first glance have given him half-an-inch more.

@ Sandy Cowell - Your request for the late Elizabeth Dawn to have a page is a great one, I canโ€™t think of a better request to be honest. I fully support your request.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Nov/19
@ Rob - How about a page for his grandma, Vera Duckworth, played by the late Elizabeth Dawn? I have checked her out before and found 5ft7, which I didn't disbelieve. In fact, I'd say she was a fairly strong 5ft7.

@ Starlo3 - I know exactly what you mean! When you see a certain face and you associate it with someone in the Celeb world you know to be tall or small, you subconsciously expect the same sort of height for the lookalike.

He has a face that makes me think he'd be tall. Kinda like Paul Bettany or Ed Skrein
CD said on 19/Nov/19
Iโ€™d have guessed 5โ€™8.5 but I guess he is an honest 5โ€™8. You could argue that Michelle Keegan is under 5โ€™4 too based on how they looked in Corrie.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/19
Oh, I remember him in Coronation Street, but in the vintage version, he's only just been born!

He looks more than 5ft8 in the above picture, but he'll get it anyway! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘

I knew he wasn't 5ft 10 but if he is 5ft 8 then ali Bastian is shorter than 5ft 8 as she is no taller or pretty much the same height as him in heels
