I don't see a full 4 inches between him and wes. I think Wes is likely 5ft 6.5

Rob, how tall does Wes Welker look with Dettori?
Editor Rob
He can seem near 4 inches taller than Frankie.

I reckon he could be 5'3.25 - 5'3.5"!
Gladstone Screwer said on 24/Aug/17
Frankie could possibly be 5'3", no more. Bernie Ecclestone, however, I've always thought of as 4'11". He's ridiculous, he truly is.

is 5 ft 3 small average or tall for a jockey ?
[Editor Rob: the average might be more 5ft 5-6]
Parker said on 8/Feb/13
Still don't think he is shorter than 5'3 at anytime of the day.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jan/13
Well, I'm leaning more on 5'3-5'3.5" than 5'2.5-5'3" now anyway as I think Tricia Penrose is an easy 5'4" and can look taller than that at times.

Click HereHeight baffles me. Pause at 21:07 and Dettori is taller than 5'4" Trish. She's barefoot, he's in hiking boots. He actually looks 5'5" in the boots as she clearly looks at least 5'4" herself.

Which brings me back to my original comment on why a famous Jockey would claim 5'4 if he is only 5'3.......maybe he's 5'3.5 and rounds up.........or 5'4 fresh out of bed.

Is the Bronx famous for its zoo or something? I bet its got a big G of its own, a giraffe, maybe the baby giraffe is 5 ft 8, the adult ones are darn lanky!
[Editor Rob: G lives beside the zoo.]

Weird isn't it. Mangel is what 6'-6'0.5" range? He looks 5'8 tops in comparison I swear seeing him on CBB he often looks 5'8" tops next to Razor and some of the girls. He seems to look that low too often for it to be a coincidence. But he can seem around 5'9" on other occasions. One thing for sure is that he's not 5'10, or even close which I think brings up Jesse Spencer who played Billy Kennedy, I think Billy just edged out Toadie maybe he is more 5'9.5". Watching Neighbours they both seemed 5'10"-5'11 range but Jesse can look a bit smaller than 5'10" too on his US TV series from what I've seen.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/13
Nah he is 5'9 ish I think, at 21:48 she's about 2 inches shorter in big heels. All I can say is he slouches terribly can can often look much shorter but when he's stood up straight he's around 5'9"!
[Editor Rob: here's an interesting one:

Joe Mangel and Toadfish.

G with Joe Mangel (no, not the Bronx G, my own G):

G with Joe Mangel.

now lil G is 5ft 5.5 - 5ft 5.75 range and had a 1.75 boot that day in edinburgh...

maybe there is a chance toadie is smaller!]
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/13
Maybe they're the same height when she's in heels, when if she's 5'4" how can she reach 5'10" which Toadie should be in shoes?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/13
Pause at 18:29, Tricia Penrose is taller than Toadie in heels even if he wasn't leaning she would be, I'm confused, surely he can't be more 5 ft 6-7?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/13
I know you won't watch CBB Rob, but pause at 14:56 Click Here

Are you sure Toadfish is really 5'9"? Strangely he doesn't seem much taller than Frankie. OK, he's not standing fully straight but look at his proportions, oddly looks much shorter. Rylan on the other hand looks every bit of 6'4".
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jan/13
Wayne Rooney is listed at 5 ft 10 and Ashley Cole at 5'9.5" though Parker, listing means nothing... In reality Rooney is 5'9" flat and Ashley Cole barely over 5 ft 7. You wouldn't get Rob to watch a full episode of Big Brother if the G man reversed his height with Rob and said "look you're 5'6.75", I'm the one who is 5 ft 8!". Hehe. Agreed its awful television, this series in particular has been diabolical. At least last year Denise Welch going psycho on Michael Madsen was something.. When did you lower Heidi Montag's height Rob? I agree on a flat 5'2 BTW but she can seem taller.
Parker said on 18/Jan/13
Must admit I've only ever seen Denis Wise listed at 5'6. Not that that means he is,most sites 'piggy back' from other sites.

Irrespective I agree 5'3 looks a good estimate. I notice Rob has dropped Heidi Montag to 5'2.......he must have been watchin CBB and seen Frankie and her next to each other.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Jan/13
Denis Wise isn't 5'6" though I don't think, I think he was listed at 166cm in an old sticker album I had. More 5'5" and change. Well Frankie's not as low as 5'2 I don'tthink, he's got 2-3 inches on Lacie Banghard, yes that's her real name LOL. She claims 5'1" for her modelling I suspect she's nearer a flat 5'0. Frankie yeah he's close to 5'3", 5'2.5"-5'3" is a good guess I reckon.

Ecclestone is nearer the camera though. I think Frankie is a bit taller, but I don't think he's over 5 ft 3 Parker. What do you think he really is?

Well now I've started looking, I am coming round to your estimate. With 5'6 Denis Wise

5'3 seems a good estimate

Your first pic didn't come out Parker

As I thought Frankie edges him out I think but there's not much in it. I stick by my 5'2.5"-5'3" guess. Although a man like Ecclestone could have something sinister in his shoes...

She likes her food too much, yup. Nah I always fancied the short red haired one Lisa I think and Faye. Claire was never my cup of tea. Neither was, eh, H.

Claire from Steps has 3-4 inches on Frankie, listed here at 5ft 6 which I agree with. My guess for Frankie is 5'2.5"
[Editor Rob: I used to fancy that steps girl...she's changed a fair bit now.]

Trust me, he aint 5 ft 4!

Not disputing your estimate Arch - Yours are always pretty close to mine. I never really looked at Frankie, just expressing suprise that a famous jockey who are typically 5'1-5'4 range would claim higher than he is.

I saw a programme on Sky a few months back and Frankie was talking to Bernie Ecclestone who was 1 or 2 inches shorter than Frankie - so a 5'3 Frankie would make Bernie's usual 5'3 listing somewhat suspect to. What do u think?

Why would a 5'2/5'3 guy claim 5'4?
---------------------------------------------------
The same reason all men who claim 1-2" more then there height. Its human nature. Even men 6f7 will say they are 6f8-6f9.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/13
That's a bit unfair SAK, Rylan is a strong 6'4" guy who wears heeled shoes with high hair! He makes a 6 ft guy seem short.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/13
Parker says on 14/Jan/13
I've always seen 5'4 or 5'5 listed for Frankie.....never lower than 5'4. He's always claimed 5'4. Why would a 5'2/5'3 guy claim 5'4?

Because its extremely short for a guy and 5'4" for him is sort of like the jockey's version of 5'6"-5'7" guys like G claiming 5'8". He wouldn't even reach 5 ft 5 in shoes Parker!! 5 ft 7 would be like G being listed at 6 ft! Trust me, he aint 5 ft 4!
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/13
Considering her age QEII might have been 5'3.5" possibly 5'4" peak, 5'1.5" now would be a good guess. I've requested her and others on the request page anyway..
little sue said on 15/Jan/13
I've always read in Women's Mags over the years that the Queen was 5ft 3 and her sister Margeret was 5ft 1.

He is listed as high as 5'7'' on some sites! lol

Not meaning to sound rude, but he does look like a dwarf when standing next to 6f4 Rylan. Knew he wasn't 5f4, 5f3 is on point.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jan/13
Yes she did look as low as 5'1" range next to Kate Middleton recently I thought. 5'1"-5'2" seems about right barefoot, nowhere near 5'4" now anyway, and I doubt she was quite it at peak, maybe 5'3" and change.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jan/13

With Her Majesty. I think she has normal heels on. She might have been 5 ft 4 peak but 5 ft 2 might be nearer what she is today. Any estimates for QEII Rob? I think somewhere around 5'2".
[Editor Rob: 5ft 1-2 range possibly, she was supposed to be almost 5ft 4 at peak, a couple of inches shorter nowadays naturally. ]
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jan/13
Was going to request this today, good call! 5'3" is certainly a more reasonable estimate, could be 5'2.5". I thought he seemed shorter than Heidi Montag though, was she in boots?? I didn't think he was that short, I don't think he looks quite as low as 5'2" or under, but 5'2.5"-5'3" I think is about right. He's not 5'4" though!!
[Editor Rob: it's no stretch that a guy like frankie might add an inch.]
