He says he's 5ft 5 though and I belive him. Michael might have started shrinking at his age

Really doesn't look an inch shorter than 5'6 listed Michael Le Vell

Minimum 5'6 IMO. Look at the pic with 5'8.5 Ryan Thomas CD posted July 2015.
Must have been measured at 5'5 in the evening with very loose posture if he claims 5'5

He is a short guy. You can see that when he stands next to others in the Eastenders cast. He looks a good 6 inches shorter than 5’11 Scott Maslen

Do you think, Rob, that he could have been told a lower height by someone who was jealous of his success? I reckon he looks at least 5ft7.
I don't know about 5ft 7, but I can see how 5ft 6 is a height he might look. He is a guy I notice Does a bit of tip toeing
in photos with people.

I think he is very honest! He does sometimes look taller to me!

I never thought Dean's height to be quite this low. I'd have said 5ft6.5 or more.
It didn't stand in his way of fathering twins though, did it?
I liked Robbie's relationship with his Alsasian 'Wellard' - and I was genuinely upset when he had to be put down because he was ill.
I shall guess Dean's height as 5ft5.75, the contributing factors for this including some of the comments I have just read and, of course, my own assumption.

Could've grown in height since 1998 as he was quite young then, seemed an inch or two taller than Jack Ryder in Eastenders sometimes
Parker said on 5/Jul/16
He's taller than 5'5. Must be one of the few celebs that actually downgrades his height.

To be fair I think he is potentially 5ft 5.5 range and rounds down. Here he is with Ryan Thomas who is 5ft 9ish from what I've seen. Click Here

wow never thought he was 5'5 lol always thought he was an average guy

Legit Michael Le Vell is not over 5ft 6in based on this shot where he looks no more than an inch taller than Gaffney who is 5ft 5. Click Here
Strangely Gaffney can pass as a 5ft 7-8 range guy, even though he isn't that well proportioned (short legs, longer torso like Scott Caan).

Yeah he's got a notorious reputation with women, he always looked a sleazy guy. Maybe it was his jawline and wallet they were attracted do. He always reminded me of Eugene Victor Tooms from the X Files played by Doug Hutchinson.

I once read 5 ft 8 for him!! I knew that was false!! Yeah, he looked 5'5"-5'6" in Eastenders. Not sure how he got so many ladies though, it's not as if he has M J Fox's face at that height....

I thought he was taller. Maybe because he doesn't have the typical short man body, like Jason Alexander does.

He is pretty good looking and has a slender/ proportionate looking body.

hows this guy on this site? =D
cos he gave an honest height, I honor him with the tag of celebrity! Gives his ego a boost whilst working down at Tesco's...

David said on 20/May/07
He's certainly taller than 5-5, I'd agree with Mitch @ 5-7
Mitch said on 7/Mar/07
I thought he was like 5ft 7in.

I am amazed, I always assumed he was taller than 165cm.
