I have to be careful of being too thin. I am 5ft 9ins and if I go too thin I end up looking like Olive from Popeye

I think she downgrades her height.

@Nik. I've always been good at guessing, Nik. Marching on Together, eh......

@Sandy Cowell. Sadly, Sandy, I do know the Tea Bag reference. I heard it mentioned on Family Guy a while back, and investigated. Wish I hadn't.
You could check out this Gemma's rack you know, very tasteful, it is. 🌽🍐🍐

@ Sandy Cowell @ Gladstone Screwer

Sandy - I think that your autocorrect is **ss**, don't you? It's a wonder it didn't come out with that! I also think that Gemma Atkinson and Gemma Arterton have got remarkably similar names, good spot!

Sandy & Gladstone

When Sandy's autocorrect changed TUT to T*T it was appropriate and inappropriate at the same time with what it came out with!

I think that Gemma is short of the 5'9" mark and I would say that she is between 5'8.5" and 5'8.75"! I think that that the average vote is about an inch over what she is, no way is Gemma 5'9.61"!

@ Sandy Cowell. @ Gladstone Screwer

@Sandy Cowell. Hmmm, does it rhyme with fit ? Nice. 🌽

😛 Correction Time! 😛

In the second line, the word should be 'mixed' and NOT 'missed'!

I sometimes get this Gemma (Atkinson) missed up with Gemma Arterton! I think after my trivial comment I should at least give Gemma an estimate so here it is: 5ft9 goes in the box for this Hollyoaks actress!

@ Gladstone Screwer - You and your superb massive racks! Tut tut tut!

@ Nik and Gladstone - First of all, Gladstone, you will no doubt be aware that my autocorrect has been changing certain words to make other, ruder words!
Now I wonder if you two fellas can guess what it wrote instead of T-U-T? Here's a clue: it's highly appropriate!
Yes, well done boys! I knew you would guess correctly! And then it tried to put 'T-Bag' instead of the hyphenated spelling, but that is only rude depending on your education!

This one's done a lot of nude work, I was surprised to discover. Actually she has a superb massive rack. The 5'9" seems probable.💦🌽

She said during an interview today about staring on strictly come dancing that she would need a tall partner as she is a big girl at 5ft 9ins . I see below that people are saying that she has stated 5'8 in the past . In my experience usually people who state two different heights are usually some in the middle , She is probably 5ft 8.5" ins . Although people who have met her in person below reckon she is about 5ft 10ins. So who knows !.

Do you think she might be downgrading herself a little Rob or do you think 5'9 on the nose is right? She has a similar frame to Lindsey Vonn, is 5'9.5 possible?
Editor Rob: when any 5ft 9er wears heels they can look big. Maybe she is a respectable 5ft 9 and doesn't drop under it?
Arch Stanton said on 11/Mar/16
Somebody at the DM said she looks very tall in person in Leeds. With heels would look a decent 6 ft er.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Mar/16
@Rob, might want to update it to 11 stone, that's what she weighs now. Click Here Absolutely stunning. I love strong, tall women like her and Vonn who weigh a bit and don't try to look like a stick insect!!
Editor Rob: she's looking fit there. She mentioned 11 stone as far back as 2011 on twitter as's a believable weight, but she might at times in the past been over that...
Jennifer said on 1/Jun/15
Saw her in Leeds last week, surprised at how tall she is. I'm 5-8 and she was a lot taller than me. We were both wearing flat shoes. I'd say 5-10 easy
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/14
Doesn't look lanky at all, bloody gorgeous.
Alex said on 16/Jan/13
Legit 5ft9in, maybe even 5ft9.5 in. Very tall woman eitherway.
RD said on 14/Jan/13
Seems about right. Every article I read about her says she's 5ft 9in. In Closer magazine it said she was 5ft 9in and 11 stone (154lbs). Click Here

I'd say Gemma is a bit taller than this -- maybe 5ft 9.5in or 5ft 10in. I used to work in hair and makeup on Hollyoaks about 10 years ago. Most actresses are quite short, but I always remember that Gemma was quite a bit taller than me and I'm just under 5ft 8in.

On Soccer AM I am sure she said 5'8.

She definetley said 5'8, I have heard her quote 5'8 before somewhere too- Radio?

She claims 5'9 here as well..however Id say Tim Lovejoy has 1 inch on her and he is 5'10 which would make sense but she has heels on? What do you think rob?
