That was a romantic proposal tonight! I hope they have a lovely wedding and a very happy life together!

6ft0.5. ❤️💕

Well done for arresting David’s rotten little stepson! That’ll show the youngsters watching that you can’t mess around with extremist groups and expect to get away with it. They’re dangerous, and use and abuse the young and vulnerable.

Strong six foot, so Colson gets 6ft 0.25. Not only has this young man turned his life around in Coronation Street, but he’s successfully lost weight, and most importantly, he’s KEPT IT OFF! 🏆

Yeah this works, I wouldn't go under though and a fraction over 6ft is still arguable. I'm inclined to believe Charlie is at the very least a strong 6ft1, if not 6ft1½. Looks like a big 6ft2 guy next to Colson!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/22
Rob, perhaps DeMelo is more 6ft1-2 range and Smith nearer 6ft flat?

If you go to Charlie's page, you'll see the photos I posted of them at a premiere where Colson is noticeably shorter. I struggle to see just half an inch between them.
Editor Rob
Yeah, I think for Smith, he's struggling to look 6ft with DeMelo...

Having a look at Charlie with others, good postured guy, 6ft 1 fits
with a few, sometimes over that looks likely too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Aug/22
Rob you sure he's this tall?

I posted photos of him with Charlie DeMelo on his page where he's looking a good 2in shorter! The post hasn't shown up yet. Still think Charlie could be more 186-187cm range though. Don't know if lifts are involved
Editor Rob
Posture is something to consider with this guy, but I can see the argument for lower.

'...and it does put my own crutch investigation into perspective."

Eh, yes, Craig! There've been a fair few crutch references in Coronation Street over the past week, and scope for plenty of double entendres. Ten out of ten to the overly serious Craig for saying his with a completely straight face!

6ft0.75. His mammoth 🐘 weight-loss not only makes young Colson look taller, and added to that, he does tend to be cast with short people, but I'm definitely beginning to think the actor is nearer to 6ft1 than 6ft, or even the halfway house of 6ft and half-an-inch.

He's almost unrecognisable in his current piccie, he's transformed himself so well through his hard work and perseverance. Well done, Colson! Now you have the best of your youthful years to enjoy as a tall, slim and fit young man! 😉👌

@ Sandy Cowell - That’s very interesting, thanks for telling me! I wonder if she claims 6’0”! I do know that Colson can sometimes pull off looking 5’10” and that can create the illusion that those around him are taller than what they are! False claims, misinformation, and poor posture, can throw people off track in judging the heights of people and those around them! This policewoman could be 5’10.5” but we don’t know and we may never know!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Sep/21
@ Nik - There's a very tall policewoman in the Coronation Street force. If Colson is 6ft2, then she's 6ft! 🐦

6ft0.5 for Colson. 👮‍♂️
Nik Ashton said on 3/Aug/21
@ Sandy Cowell - It wouldn’t wear, Sandy! His character Craig will have been measured prior to starting as a policeman and I would bet my bottom dollar that they didn’t arrive at 6’2”, not that it matters though because men and women of 5’4” and under can and do make good cops and there is rightfully no height discrimination these days! At one time men had to be 5’8” to be allowed into the police force.

Craig’s 6’2” claim may wear outside the police station though, that is if the Bailey Brothers claim 5’10”! Sometimes Colson can appear 5’11” range or even 5’10” range, he must have awful posture because I certainly think he is around the 6’0” mark and you could actually be correct in what you have said about his height!

I agree that he should stand up to the racist colleague of his, he would do all good police officers and the police force in general so much good by standing up to him. My Dad would have stood up to him when he was a policeman and I would too if I was in the police force. The police force is a great institution but glaring faults like this need correcting as a matter of urgency wherever they occur.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Aug/21
@ Nik - It wouldn't wear, Nik! I compared him to one of the Bailey brothers not a minute ago and they're both 5ft8. In fact, the half-an-inch over 6ft that I gave him last night is pushing it, but perhaps he's that early in the day.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Aug/21
Come on Craig! Don't cover up for that racist colleague of yours. 👮‍♂️👅

You've come so far, both physically, mentally and career-wise and you're the only one who can stick up for the Bailey brothers!

6ft0.5. 😁👌
Nik Ashton said on 6/Jul/21
I hope Craig doesn’t claim 6’2” when he is at work! 👮‍♀️!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/21
I've read that Colson has lost a staggering 10 stone, or 140 pounds. Well done to him! 😃👌

Torrinator said on 14/Feb/21
Rob what would you say is going on here Colson looks like he's a good 2 inches shorter than 6ft 1 listed Charlie De Melo (*maybe* a bit less footwear): Click Here but looks near 7 inches taller than Jack P Shepherd considering he looks to have an almost 5 inch eyelevel.

Jack Shepherd can also look 8 inches shorter than Charlie De Melo... Click Here Maybe someone's listing needs reconsidering?
Editor Rob
could it be just posture, he is a guy who you can see at times looks shorter than he can measure.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Jan/21
I'm watching 'Coronation Street' right now and looking straight at Colson. I think he's more than likely 6ft1 quite honestly. 🤔
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Nov/20
I can't see two inches between Colson and Mark Frost! I think it's possible that Colson could be nearer 6ft1.5. 🤔
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Nov/20
I'm beginning to think that Colson looks a little taller without all that surplus weight. His hair is lighter too. I'm waiting for the chance to compare him to Charlie De Melo.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Sep/20
Congratulations to Colson, who seems to have lost all his surplus weight now, revealing a handsome young man! It must have involved a major effort, but it's been SO worthwhile.

6ft0.5 😁👌
Sandy A Cowell said on 12/Aug/20
I don’t know why, because this isn’t the case with most people, but Colson , who is carrying quite a few extra pounds, is definitely one of the lucky few who looks considerably*taller than the just-over-six-foot as detailed here. Many with his body type would look shorter, but not Colson. Is it that he’s nearer 6ft1+ at the time of day ‘Coronation Street’ is filmed, or is he actually taller? Perhaps it’s because the young policeman hangs around with people much shorter than himself that pulls the wool over our eyes. Whatever the reason, I expected that he’d be at least 6ft1; he looks kind of awkward and one would expect a tall young man like him to be brimming with confidence. However, he’s coming out of his shell now, an example of which we observed when a few police officers arrested someone a few episodes ago.

I’m not fond of the character of his mother, who has displayed many selfish traits in the show, perhaps the worst of which was moaning that they wouldn’t be able to work when a young girl died in a terrible accident at the factory. Colson’s Craig has OCDs, obviously a consequence of his upbringing or being bullied at school, but for whatever the reason, young Craig has shown the determination to make a challenging career for himself, and for that he is to be admired.

Long gone are the days when policemen had to be 5ft8 or 5ft9 (I can’t remember exactly) to get into the force, and women 5ft4. I don’t know whether it’s just me, but a tiny police officer doesn’t look quite right to me. I’m used to looking up to them - ever since childhood. Colson’s Craig would have no worries in the height department, but he’s had to get to grips with his OCDs, which would certainly have prevented him being accepted. He plays a gutsy young man who is eager to make something of himself and put his sheltered upbringing behind him.

Colson gets 6ft and half-an-inch. 👮‍♂️

* Different phone = different balls-ups! This, my brother’s phone, wanted to put “Colson is definitely one of the lucky few who looks constipated” instead of “ of the lucky few who looks considerably taller than the just-over-six-foot as detailed here.”

It looks as though decency and common courtesy have gone for a summer break!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/May/20
Well done Colson, who has definitely been shedding the pounds to become a healthier weight. I could tell just by looking at his face! 😆👍

Six foot and half-an-inch. He'll no doubt look taller with a trimmer physique. 👌🌝
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Mar/20
I think this kid has grown into a proper stalwart of society.

I was disgusted to hear that the silly, stupid colleagues of his are making fun of his girth and his ginger hair.

Ginger hair is beautiful!

Nik said on 14/Dec/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Too true, even 6'1" looks a push! Perhaps his posture is not always good so he may be taller than he looks, I reckon it is likely that he is nearer to 6'0" than 6'1" though!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/19
@ Nik - It's hard to believe that he's listed himself as 6ft2 before, but if he stands up really, REALLY straight, he surpasses the 6ft mark. 💂‍♀️
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Dec/19
We have to remember, Nik, that Colson doesn't have the best of postures. Hopefully, his confidence will grow now that he's a successful actor and he'll stand more upright and display his height to the full.

6ft and a quarter-inch. Yes, I was a trifle hard last time....
Nik said on 8/Dec/19
@ Sandy Cowell - This is super interesting, but believable!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Nov/19
Colson looked shorter than Rob Mallard this week in 'Coronation Street'. I noticed when he came in to rescue Rob's Daniel while he was creating a laptop-related stink in the pawn shop!


TheBat said on 19/Nov/19
Typical 6'0"6'0.5" range guy claiming 6'2".
Nik Ashton said on 16/Sep/19
@ Sakz - That is so very true!
Sakz said on 15/Sep/19
He does give quite a big impression among the other cast members but nowhere near 6'2. I think it's a fair listing.

@Nik I wasn't aware of that. He also previously lived with Jack P Shepherd who plays David.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 15/Sep/19
Think Sam astin deserves a page and could be similar height to Jack p Sheppard
Nik Ashton said on 14/Sep/19
I would love to see him pictured with Rob!
Editor Rob
I would like to have met more soap actors, but they don't go to the events I attend, well unless they pop up in some fantasy/genre type show!
Nik Ashton said on 14/Sep/19
I have 🐝n on an online site and read that it’s thought that he’s about 6 foot, this hasn’t 🐝n confirmed though!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/19
His claim is maybe possible in shoes
Nik Ashton said on 14/Sep/19
@ Rob - How likely is 6’0.25”?

It’s great that this smashing young gentleman now has a well deserved page on celebheights! He spent most of his childhood living in Castleford (Cas Vegas! Cas!) and he went to Castleford (Cas!) high school at the same time as my niece Lucy!

Interestingly Colson moved in with Ben Price earlier this year!

6ft at a low, 6ft at a high, so anywhere amidst that range is possible.
