Rob i don't think Davina is any more than 5'6" . Here she is with 5'9" to 5'10" Joely Richardson. She looks between 3 and 4 inches shorter . How much taller do you think Joely is than Davina?.
Yeah she can seem 5ft 6 there

Davina is 5ft 6ins at best . Here she is with 5ft 6ins Mel C. From what i can see she is shorter than Mel C. Davina is a weak 5ft 6ins . Alsi i will post a video of her with 5ft 7ins Caprice . Caprice is noticeably taller than Davina. Davina might claim 5ft 7ins but even at her morning height she wouldn't reach . The way i see when Davina wakes up she would be a stronf 5ft 6ins and her when she goes to bed she would be a weak 5ft 6ins.

I remember the first programme that featured Davina McCall. It was a dating show from the mid-90's, showing in the early hours of the morning. It was probably 2am or 3am - well you get the gist - and it was really rather naughty for its day! They'd even have gay editions, which we now see at tea-time, but back then it was unheard of, and its raunchiness knew no bounds - at least for those days! I'll have to track down what it was called. I think it was one of the many programmes originating from Sky TV, but it was thoroughly unconventional and no one had ever seen anything like it before. Now we have dating shows which are based on the contestants seeing their potential dates starkers before clothed, and their faces remain a mystery until the 'winning' contender is chosen!
What would my Mum have said? 😱 Well, she'd either have found it utterly hilarious and watched it, criticising away in the same way as she did the first time I came home with a lads' mag, which I'd come across down an alley on my way home from school, (an incident I talked about on Brigitte Bardot's page), or she'd have thought it completely disgusting! I find it quite pointless, and what is it telling the youth of today? That there's nothing more to a relationship than sex and sexual chemistry? What poppycock is that? If you go on that show, is it purely to find someone you find physically attractive, your first port of call being an hotel room? Arghhh! It's bad enough that you see dating programmes where people are turned down on the grounds of their height, or because the contestant doesn't like the length of someone's jeans - and yes I've seen the latter a couple of times and as for the former, that of height compatibility, there's generally at least one incident in every show!
Well, if Davina wasn't happily married with a family and was game for the most ludicrous type of dating show imaginable, she wouldn't have any trouble on the height front, and she keeps herself in tip-top shape as well, so she might even win, or 'score' to put it bluntly! I see her height as a weak 5ft7, so overall, I think that giving her 5ft6.75 is the best option.
So that's what Davina gets from me - 5ft6.75.
PS What the blazes will dating shows get up to 20/25 years from now? The words 'mind' and 'boggles' are the first couple to enter my head! 😦

Rob here is Davina with 5'6" Emma Willis . Who do you think is taller?. They look about the same height to me. Do you think Davina could be a weak 5'6 or strong 5'5".
People who have met Davina say that she doesn't give an impression of 5'7". More a strong 5'5" or a shade above 5'6".
said on 8/Jun/18
Rob here is Davina with 5ft 9.5" Naomi Campbell. Naomi toers Davina and looks between 3 and 4 inches taller than Davina . I can't see Davina any more than 5'6". How much height do you think is between Davina and Naomi in this video.
It might be a bit more than 3 inches, though the moment was rather brief between them.
said on 13/Mar/18
What do you think of that article below of the man who met davina . he reckoned she was about 5'6". I reckon face to face meetings are the best way to judge a celebrities height.
Davina has a body (and head) that at times makes her seem just 5ft 5-6, although generally I don't think you'd ever argue she looks under 5ft 6 when with other people.
said on 12/Dec/17
Rob here is article about a fan meeting Davina back in 2000 when Davina singled him out for the show street . He mentions below that Davina was only about 5'6". I really think Davina is closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
said on 1/Dec/17
Rob here is Davina with 5'7 Rachel Riley . Rachel has her knees bent but is still noticeably taller . I think if Rachel was standing up right she would have Davina by as much as an inch . I really don't think Davina is any more than 5'6" , In the video i posted of her and 5'6" Catherine Tate they looked about the same height.
Here is a picture of Davina and Rachel, there are pictures of Davina's footwear which is similar to Rachael's footwear .

Rob here is a video of Davina with 5'5" Mel Giedroyc . Davina is barely taller . There is no way Davina is anything above 5'6" comparing her to 5'5" Mel in this video.
jinny90 said on 14/Oct/17
Nik why do you think Davina is 5'6.75" . Have you seen here with 5ft 4ins Ellie Goulding. Davina is max 2 inches taller . On the jump with Amy Willerton who listed 5'7.5" on this she looked at least 2 inches shorter . With 5'5'5" Sarah harding she looks only a hair taller . Davina is 5'6" at best.
Nik said on 13/Oct/17
I think that 5'6.75" is a fair call! I don't think she is less than 5'6.5" nor more than 5'6,75"!
said on 25/Sep/17
Rob here are pictures of 5'8.5" Shilpa Shetty and 5'7" Davina . There looks a lot more than inch and a half between them . I will post a video below of Davina and Shilpa on CBB and you see Davina been towered by at least 3 inches . I really cant see Davina as any more than 5'6 . She looked the same height as 5'5.5" Sarah Harding on Pop Stars the Rivals.
said on 11/Sep/17
Rob here Davina with 5'4" Ellie Goulding . There isn't even 2 inches between them . Do you think Davina might be closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
Editor Rob: 6.5 might be the best mark for Davina, as she has managed to look anywhere between 5ft 6 to 7 over her career.
jinny90 said on 10/Sep/17
Davina was nearly 2 inches shorter than 5'8" Caprice on Celebrity Big Brother. So Davina is 5'6.'5" at most.
jinny90 said on 26/Apr/17
In the first video I posted why forward to about 23 minutes to see Davina being towered by Amy Willerton.
said on 25/Apr/17
Davina is nowhere near 5'7. There are some early comments below from people who have seen her in the flesh and they all say she is about 5'5. Here is a video below of her standing beside 5'8.5" Amy Willerton and Amy towers here by about 3 inches.
Here she is interviewing 5'7.5" Caprice on CBB .Caprice has to tilt her head to talk to her . She has Davina by a good 2 inches.
said on 25/Mar/17
Rob look at this video of Holly Willoughby and Davina in the garnier add. How much taller do you think Holly is than Davina?
said on 19/Mar/17
Rob here is Davina with 5'6 Mel C and she is clearly shorter . This proves Davina is 5'6" at best or maybe even 5ft 5.5".
said on 14/Mar/17
Rob check out these photos of Davina with 5'8'5" Sara Cox. Their footwear looks about the same and Cox is at least 2 inches taller than Davina. The most i can see for Davina is 5'6'5 .The only way Davina reaches 5'7 is first thing in the morning.
jinny90 said on 26/Feb/17
Rob on the jump she looks like she is struggling with 5'6". 5'8'5 Amy Willerton looks over 2 inches taller than Davina . Also Davina looks only fractionally taller than that Kadeena Cox who is only 5'5.
jinny90 said on 21/Feb/17
Well if Davina is 5'6.5 would that not make Caprice 5'8, because on the jump Caprice looks at least an inch and a half taller than Davina.
said on 17/Feb/17
Ok towering is a bit of an exaggeration but to me it looks like Caprice has Davina by an inch and a half. It dosen't look like that because Davina is standing in front of Caprice but if you compare there shoulder level and the fact that Caprice tilts her head looking down at Davina suggests to me that Caprice is taller than Davina by over an inch . I think a case could be made for Caprice being a solid 5'8" and Davina 5'6.5 . In no way can i see Davina been a solid 5'7 . She looks 5'7 on television but people always look taller on television for some reason.
Editor Rob: certainly I won't rule out the 5ft 6.5 mark...the 5ft 6 mark I don't know, she seems to be over that mark.
said on 16/Feb/17
Rob did you look at the video . 5'8 Caprice towers Davina . She is at least an inch half taller than Davina. I thinks its time for another downgrade for Davina.
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have called it towering, but I've always said you can make a case for 169cm.
said on 14/Feb/17
She looked over an inch shorter than 5'8 Caprice on the jump. Watch the video below and wind forward to 57 mins to see Caprice and Davina stand side by side . Davina is closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
said on 7/Feb/17
Here is Davina and Holly in the behind scenes garnier advert . Wind video to 3.00. Holly looks well over an inch taller than Davina . If Holly is 5'8. Davina is 5'6.5. Also the other girl Angela Scanlon is 5'6 . She looks the as tall as Davina. Maybe 5'6'5 is the most Davina could be.
said on 19/Jan/17
In this video she is interviewing Caprice who is a questionable 5'8 . Caprice looks to have her by close to 2 inches . She has to tilt her head down a lot to talk to davina . So she is close to two inches taller . Her heels are maybe 0.5 inch more than Davina's . So if Caprice is 5'8" . Davina is 5'6'5".
Caprice is on the jump this series so I will be able to compare their heights better.
Wind forward in the video below to 11.30 mins to compare her height to Davina.
Editor Rob: a weak 5ft 7 range for Davina has always been a reasonable estimate.
said on 3/Jan/17
She presented with 5'10 Phillip Schofield on This Morning, she was in 4inch heels about looked an inch and a half shorter than Schofield . The difference in height was notable between her and Holly in comparison to Schofield as Holly is the same height as Schofield in similar heels .
said on 20/Dec/16
Here she is with 5'7.5 " Sarah Ferguson . Fergie is old now so reckon she has shrunk a bit so she is about 5'7.25. Fergie looks over half inch taller than Davina . So Davina is about 5'6.5 or a solid 5'6. Its clear Davina is 5'6 to 5'7 and is rounding . Either that or she measured herself during . She never deviates from her 5'7 claim though.
BilboBaggins said on 10/Nov/16
Yeah, Davina is definitely about 5' 7". She's never looked short next to the majority of the contestants over the years. In fact, she towers over most of them (whether they're in high heels, or not).
said on 21/Jul/16
Davina is suprisingly tall . She actual is a strong 5'7 . She looks shorter because of her stocky build but when you see her stand next to women of 5'8 like Caprice. Davina looks only marginally shorter . Here is Davina with 5'8 big brother contestant Orlaith McCallister. They are both wearing similar heels and Davina stands as tall as her. If anything i think Davina is underlisted she could be a weak 5'8". What do you think Rob?. Perhaps Davina needs an upgrade.
James B said on 26/Apr/16
a bit above average for a woman and a great body too :-)
said on 5/Jan/16
Rob here is Davina with 5'6 Laura Whitmore . There heels are pretty similar and they look the same height . I think its highly unlikey that Davina is a legitimate 5'7 . She might of measured herself early in the day at 5'6.5 and she is rounding up to the nearest inch.. 5'6 to 5'6.5 is her height . She is above average height but by no means a tall woman.
Here are Whitmores heels
said on 21/Dec/15
Rob here is a video of Davina with 5'7 Stacy Solomon . If you wide forward towards to about 3 minutes you will see Davina interviewing Stacy. Who do you think is taller?
Editor Rob: wouldn't say much between them, a weak 5ft 7 is still possible for her.
said on 18/Dec/15
Rob here is Davina with 5'7 Ulrika Jonsson . Davina is in higher heels Ulrika has her knees bent but yet Davina is barely taller than Ulrika . Those who have met Davina say she is closer to 5'6 than 5'7 . I think she is 5'6.5" at best.
Editor Rob: I haven't ruled out 169cm for her
said on 25/Nov/15
Rob wind this video to 37 minutes. You will see that Ulrika Jonsson is at least an inch taller than Davina . Davina also has a slight heel advantage. 5'7 for davina looks impossible to me.
said on 22/Nov/15
Rob here is a video of Caprice with Davina . They are both wearing similar heels and Caprice is taller than Davina by at least an inch . Caprice is a solid 5'7 so Davina is 5'6 at most . I think she needs to be downgraded . Wind forward to 11.29 in the video to see.
Editor Rob: I would doubt there is more than half inch or so between them, certainly davina can fall into weak 5ft 7 range.
said on 3/Oct/15
Rob i seriously doubt that Davina is a legitimate 5'7 . I think she is 5'6.5 or 5'6.75 so if she is as tall as Caprice then it's hard to see Caprice been even a legitimate 5'7. Do you think Caprice could even be below 5'7 say 5'6.75
[Editor Rob: there is a chance both of them could be in weak 5ft 7 zone, we know how caprice looked with that other girl who claimed 5ft 8.5 as her height, she looked maybe 5ft 7 at most.]
said on 2/Oct/15
Do you think Davina might actually be taller than Caprice . What height do you think Caprice and Davina are if you were to guess.
[Editor Rob: they might be very close, without seeing footwear or more footage it is hard to really tell between them.]
said on 30/Sep/15
Rob here is a video of Davina and Caprice at the Brit Awards in 2000. How much shorter do you think Davina is than Caprice in this video?.
[Editor Rob: in that clip it is tough, she might be a bit smaller, how much though I couldn't say because I thought Davina was leaning a bit forward at times.]
said on 23/Sep/15
Davina is a good inch shorter than 5'8 dec . She is 5'8 in heels so the
most she could be is 5'6 barefoot and thats generous . You could
make a case for her been below 5'6.
said on 6/Sep/15
rob do you not think 5ft 7 is a bit to tall for davina?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 6.5 is quite possible for her.]
div said on 27/Aug/15
Rob could you add english model Laura Bailey. She is listed at 5'8 which is
said on 16/Jun/15
Here she is with 5'7 Chantelle Houghton .
said on 27/Feb/15
Look at this pic with 5'8 Chris Moyles . Moyles is 5'8 he was measured that by
a doctor . So his height isn't up for debate . She looks at least 2 inches . So
Davina is 5'6 She needs a downgrade.
said on 19/Feb/15
Again here she is with 5'9 Tess Daly she is slouching so Tess looks considerably
taller but if Davina was standing upright. Tess would be at the most 2 inches taller.
said on 19/Feb/15
She is deceptively tall. I think she is a solid 5'7 . She has short legs
and a long body so she gives the impression of being 5'5. Here is a picture of her taken with some models . I reckon the blonde model is about 5'9 and the black model is about 5'8 . Davina is slouching yet she is still nearly as tall the black model . If Davina was standing straight she would be practically as
tall as the black model.
gerry said on 16/Feb/15
She is taller than Dermot O Leary in normal shoes . How tall is Dermot?.
gerry said on 14/Feb/15
She doesn't look a legitimate 5'7" to me. I think she is rounding up she is
geri said on 18/Jan/15
Rob could you put up Lisa Snowdons height please.
germs said on 11/Jan/15
I remember her presenting a show with 6'1 David Tennant . She was in massive heels and still looked 4 inches shorter . I think she is closer to 5'6.
Sean said on 30/Jan/14
Inch taller than expected, always guessed her at 5'6", Big brother is not the same without her, going to watch all the series again
ned said on 17/Oct/13
she looks short on television but is surprisongly tall in real life,for about 15 years she had best bottom on telly but never got much praise for it.she had great bum on tv series "don't try this at home"standing with back to camera in skintight trousers wow
Doug said on 10/Feb/09
Could have sworn Davina was in the 5'9"-5'10" range always looks tall but wears heels. 5'7" barefoot, in 3 inch heels 5'10", yep I'll buy that.
Lucy said on 10/Jan/09
I used to work at Endemol who make BB. I'm only 5ft 8in and she was a lot shorter than me. I would say 5ft 6in at the very most.
katie said on 6/Nov/08
Ive met chantelle, and she is MUCH taller than 5ft 7, im 5ft5 and a half and she was atleast 3inches taller than me, i'd say between 5ft8 and 5ft 9, she deffo isnt taller than that. and nicole is taller than 5ft 4, I'd say 5'6 and a bit.

5'7" does seem a little tall for Davina - I'd say drop her at least half an inch. I met her years ago in Liverpool when she was hosting Streetmate and she wasn't tall at all, although she was wearing flats.
Daii said on 12/Aug/08
She has quite long legs, she is probably 5'7, taller in heels - shes quite hot

I met the twins at the clothes show this year and are actually tall! I'm a tiny bit under 5"8 and even though they were both wearing reeeeally high platform stilletto shoes, you could tell they would be tall without heels also. About 5"7. Click Here
every1ishuge said on 24/Aug/07
I think the twins are noticeably quite tall, about 5'7, yeah Carol is about 5'1-2 maybe and Chanelle about 5'5.
Here are two other ones that I read:
Nikki 4'12 (yes she put down 4'12 on her application form!)
said on 23/Aug/07
I think the twins are about 5'5 to 5'6 and Carol 5'1 to 5'2. On Amy's myspace it says her height is 162cm (5'4) Sam and Amanda are only a little taller and Carol is a bit shorter.
Amy, Sam, Amanda and Chanelle:

Well I did a search there and it turned out I've underestimated some housemates.
Some website I looked at says they were measured in the house as follows:
These could be rounding up slightly since the housemate would likely measure themselves.
It follows that Ziggy must be about 6'0 and Gerry must be hitting 6'2, indeed a tall set of housemates!

Anyone know the current heights of the big bro housemates?
My guesses are:
Helen B said on 31/Jul/07
I've stood in front of her and I'm pretty sure she's shorter than 5 7. I'm 5 7 and a half and she was about my height with heals.

i thought that davina was 5"7.5 and sasika 5"8 and derek 5"7 and macosi 5"7 and kinga 5" 3.7 and vannesa 5"6
Anonymous said on 10/Jul/06
I thought that Ashleen looked tall but when new housemate Jayned entered, i heard her saying how much taller Ashleen looks on tv than in person, and Ashleen said herself how she's really not that tall. Just shows how heights can be deceiving!!!
However i rekon she's still got to be about 5'6? Imogen maybe about 5'4 and yes Nikki is absolutely tiny!!! And yes 6'4 sounds right for Mikey he certainly is tall!!I think your about spot on Big Bro with your guesses for the guys.
Big Bro said on 10/Jul/06
Mikey was once asked his height by another housemate he said he was 6'4 and Glynn said he is an inch shorter at 6'3. From that I would guess Richard to be about 6'0 and Pete 5'7.
Huey said on 10/Jul/06
I'd like to know as well sunbeame. Mikey looks tall prob 6'2", Pete maybe 5'8", Nicky is the shortest about 5'ish. Just my estimates.

I think Davina is about 5'5" or 5'6" Chantelle's heels are 1 or 2 inches lower than Davinas
TheMan said on 2/Feb/06
Divina is about 5,7 ive read that and heard it many times before.
rose said on 1/Feb/06
did you actually watch the final Davina had high heel boots on and Chantelle had kitten heels! I have no idea about camera angles I was only making a point dude (assuming you are male since you can't judge the height of a heel!)
Anonymous said on 31/Jan/06
first of all the camera anlgle was to crap to judge if chantelle was taller than davina and second their heel size was about the same .
rose said on 29/Jan/06
I watched the final of celeb Big Brother and Davina was wearing boots with a huge 3-4 inch heel and Chantelle (fake celeb winner) who says she is 5'7" was wearing a 1-2 inch kitten heel mule and she was still a good bit taller than Davina how can this be possible if Davina is 5'7"? Also Rula was taller than her, Traci Bingham was a bit shorter in big heels, and Davina was the same hieght as Preston in her high heel boots. . . I'm not sure of their heights so if anyone can help me ou. . .
[Editor Rob: rula is listed on her resume as 5ft 9...she might have lost a cm since her heyday, but bingham beside her, both intrainers I'd say bingham was more 5ft 6]
jonny5 said on 13/Jan/06
Davina is 5ft6 at most jimmy savile i about 5ft5 now at 80 years old i seen and spoke a few times
RLG said on 15/Aug/05
Eugene said he's 6'4" and he then said it in centimeters as well. 193 cm, he said. Which is also 6'4". Craig is then somewhere around 5'11" or 6'0" looking at him next to Eugene, I'd say.
Makosi said without shoes she is 5'6". Kinga said she looked around that and then Makosi confirmed it. I'd also say Kinga was more like 4'10" from looking at her next to Makosi. She really is tiny.
I agree that Anthony is maybe 5'7". He was the same height as Makosi when he was wearing his big-heeled shoes and she was wearing 2 or 3 inch heels on the final night.
[Editor Rob: the daily record described Anthony as 5ft 3. Lol, at the very beginning he came into the house in cowboy boots and I'm sure the voiceover said Anthony was '5ft 10' with a good pair of boots or something like that...yes, looking at that eugene guy he is much taller than the rest]
mimi said on 14/Aug/05
i dont think anthony's 5'10 because when the housemates were entering the house and their audition tapes were showed ant said that his was dark and handsome but not tall and therefore, he tended to wear cowboy boots which have a bit of a heel. 5'10 im sure is not so short that he would have to wear heels! i would say he was about 5'7 or 8 because he looked that way when standing next to davina.
lucy said on 10/Aug/05
Kinga is 5,2 what height is makosi and anthoney and craig and euguen, the all look so tall compared to 5,2 kinga. As kinga entered the big brother davina said that she was only 5,2 belass her.
Orlaith was 5,8
[Editor Rob: I've no idea sorry...all I know was Anthony claimed to be 5ft 10 (on a good day) when they were talking about heights one day...Craig 5ft 11? Eugene 6ft 1? Makosi did say she wore high heels because she didn't want to feel shorter, although she isn't that short really...]
jimbo said on 19/Feb/05
Its hard to know if Davina is 5'7 , I saw her in a photograph with tv presenter gabby logan who is 5'8 and davina was inch taller than logan , but then Isaw another photo of her with gabby logan an vina was an inch shorter . I would say she probably is 5'7 but I always thought she was only about 5'5 bt davina herself say she is 5'7
jimbo said on 17/Feb/05
I thought davina was only 5'5 but she said on Richard and Judy she was 5'7 .
