When I was 17, at the Italia Conti stage school in London, dancing every day, all day, I'd never really thought about my weight. In fact, I was too thin. I was eight-and-a-half stone and I'm 5ft 8ins.
But I loved myself like that. Every woman thinks she's great when she's thin.
-- The Daily Mirror, 2005 (March 3)
I’d got complacent about my weight. By the end of the tour, I weighed in at nearly 12 stone.
I looked heavy and bloated. Not a good feeling when you’re cavorting on stage in little more than a Basque and fishnet tights for most of the show. There is only so much a 5ft 8in frame can hide!

No way is she five eight. She looked shorter than Alan who plays Tyrone in Corrie. Could be five six

Tall Claire plays Cassie, Tyrone’s Mum. Next week, she endangers herself by taking an overdose. Let’s hope she’s saved in time…..

I’ve just noticed that Claire is starring in Brookside. Nice to see her returning to the Soap world!

5ft8. 💐

He he, Gladstone! I thought you might like her! You're 6ft1, aren't you? Five foot eight is an ideal woman's height for a guy of your height.

I hope you're keeping well and recovering from your illness.

All the very best,

I saw Claire in an edition of Lily Savage's Blankety Blank on Sunday, and she was laughing at practically everything, and so was the late Liz Dawn, who played Vera Duckworth in Coronation Street.

It's hardly the ideal programme to judge the stars' heights, granted, but when you know them so well from the Soaps they've starred in, you have a pretty good idea anyway. Claire's since presented all manner of programmes, including 'Loose Women'.

5ft8 will do nicely.

I remember her playing Lindsey Corkhill in 'Brookside', and later she became a TV presenter. She used to sing in the bath in 'Brookside'!

5ft8 is fine for Claire.

Five eight good for me. Lovely looker too.
