Big Rob, what can Zack Morris (who plays Keegan in eastenders) look next to Ian in this clip?
At most 5ft 7, which is on his agency.

When Ian took part in a Celebrity quiz and came first or second, he came out with, "Not such a stupid boy now, am I Captain Mainwearing?" 😂😂😂
He always looked very tall in 'Dad's Army', but that's because the Home Guards consisted mainly of very old men!
5ft11 peak; 5ft10 now.

I give him 5'10.75" Peak and 5'10.5" current
He's shorter than big josh in person.

I'm seeing more than just 2 inches here.
Editor Rob: I'm standing worse than him, about 170-1cm there, but anyway he is 5ft 10 as he claims.

Ian Lavender has finally grown up! The beard suits him!
Though he was much taller than the other actors in 'Dad's Army', he was practically the only young star there, and the others were old and rotund, so I think 5ft11 sounds fine for his peak height.

Loved DA as a kid! On there he could look 6', but this listing is good.

Great posture considering his age.
[Editor Rob: the handshake technique worked here because I feel he'd have looked an inch smaller standing normally...]

I doubt even Stallone would pose like this. He seems like he KNOWS he's going to be put up on a height website! He looks like he's trying to force you down and boost himself!
