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?

Somebody at the DM said she looks very tall in person in Leeds. With heels would look a decent 6 ft er.

@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 well...it's a believable weight, but she might at times in the past been over that...

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

Doesn't look lanky at all, bloody gorgeous.

Legit 5ft9in, maybe even 5ft9.5 in. Very tall woman eitherway.

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.

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?
