Claire King's Height
5ft 7 ½ (171.5 cm)
English actress the role of Kim Tate in the soap opera Emmerdale, Karen Betts in Bad Girls and Erica Holroyd in Coronation Street. In a mirror newspaper article in 2000 she mentioned "I'm 5ft 8ins"
and also her measurements: "I do look a lot bigger on TV...I've got more of the hourglass, you see. I've got broad shoulders, and the bosomy bit means I can look a bit Dolly Parton top-heavy. I'm a 12 on top, 10 on the bottom. A 36 - 26 - 36 shape....I'm over 9 stone. I know that's not bad. Those charts say I'm supposed to be 10 to 10 1/2, but that would be horrendous as far as I'm concerned. I'm 5ft 8ins."

She might be no more than 5'7 flat today, but at peak id say she was 5'7.5.

This picture is deceptive! In 'Emmerdale', she is destroying as many lives as she can. I don't like her character of Kim Tate at all. 😝
You can see that Claire is a tall lady when she talks to the just-short-of-6ft Cain Dingle-Dangle, played by Jeff Hordley. He towers over the average female cast member, that's for sure!
5ft7.5 for Ms King.

I never saw 'Emmerdale' when Claire's character, Kim Tate, was in it. Now she's back, and ruining the lives of some of my favourite people, including Debbie and her ailing daughter, Sarah, who's 13 and needs a heart transplant.
This ethicless woman hasn't even started yet. We've only seen her sitting in a car, newly released from prison, with Graham (Andrew Scarborough). I think tonight she'll really begin her reign of terror, or maybe tomorrow, when they'll be a double helping of episodes, like last night.
We can then see her stand, and observe how tall she is. She's a woman in her 50's, so she might have lost a little height.

I should have mentioned that the ad is for October's 'Emmerdale'. I have never watched it with Claire starring, but I believe she played an evil piece of work. I did see her in 'Coronation Street' though!

That frightful advert with Claire wearing a scary, gold expressionless mask really gives me the shivers! But you CAN see that she's really quite tall, especially for a woman.
This time round, she gets 5ft7.5.

Claire talks about her 36-26-36 figure as making her look bigger on TV! She has a great figure and EVERYONE looks bigger on TV! Height-wise, I don't think Claire is as tall as 5ft8. I didn't watch 'Emmerdale' properly when she was in it but I'm seeing her now in Coronation Street and I think she's a very elegant 5ft6.75.

I met the lovely Claire King just a few weeks ago, and I would say we were virtually identical in height (in similarly sized shoes). I am 5ft 5.5 inches!

I saw her last year at York races and she wasn't as tall as I expected her to be.I'd say just under 5'7'' or even 5'6.5'' would be correct.
