English TV Presenter best known for presenting 80's tv shows Blue Peter and Jigsaw. In NOTW magazine it mentioned "The former Blue Peter presenter weighs 9st 7lb, is 5ft 3in and wears a size 12", although earlier in her career (1980) she was listing herself 5 feet 2½ inches. In this photo she had a 1/4 inch more shoe than me.

It's interesting that her daughter is so tall!

@ Rob - Thanks, what you have said is very interesting!

@ Rob - How much height has she lost since 1980?
Editor Rob
She may have still been relatively close to her peak when I seen her a decade ago, but in last 10 years it is likely she lost a fraction more. Some women might make it to mid 50's with minimal loss, whilst others can lose an inch by then...but nearing mid 60's, the majority of women will have lost some height.

You are extremely lucky to get to 64 without any measurable loss...though there are exceptions.

Rob, how tall do you think Robin Bextor is?


I’m guessing 6ft4...towers over Sophie
Editor Rob
Yes, you can see in a boot Click Here with Sophie, that he's very tall, maybe 6ft 4-5 range.

It really blew mind to find out that daughter Sophie is so tall! She's got to be 5ft8 or so.

This former 'Blue Peter' presenter looks 5ft2.5 to me.

She looks more 5'2" than 5'3". Maybe than she wasn't straight, she looked relaxed.
Nik said on 30/Jul/17
I think that 5'3" is clearly too high! Maybe 5'2.5" - 5'2.75" is more realistic!

No more than 5'1

5'3" is a bit generous if she had a shoes advantage...here she looks 5'1" at best

More like 5'2.5-75. My mom's 5'2" and I'm 5'8 and she comes up tp my upper lip and one of my ex girlfriend's was 5ft and she came up to my chin so yeah. And a man's head is 9-10 inches

Funny but Rob gives off a tall and broad impression in this photo. Sophie Ellis Bexter is tall though isn't she 5'9" or 5'10", I vaguely remember looking into it and reading her father is 6'4", explains her height I guess.

I work in fashion retail and we consider 5ft 3 and under small, 5ft 3.5 to 5ft 5.5 average and over 5ft 6 tall, this is British heights though

Angelina Jolie is 5'6" I think 5'6.5 MAX and always pulls off looking like a tall woman at premieres.

TheVerve, never has 5'5" or 5'6" been tall for a woman. That's average, sorry to break it to you. When I was in school we were told 5'6" for women and 5'9" for men was the American average. And in my town, girls who are 5'4" or under are considered short. You must be tiny yourself if you can honestly say 5'6" is "tall".

Actually, I think a legit 5'6" woman can pull off looking tall in big heels, Jolie, Denise Richards etc have all looked 5'9" to me at times.

The top of her head is level with Rob and Jennys nose. I'd say closer to 5'2

@Brent

5'6" for a girl is not tall, but tallish yes. A female this height is as tall for a woman as a 5'11.5" male for a man. Most people consider 6'0" to be tall for a man even these days. The corresponding female height is 5'6.5".

Had a conversation with Ted Leo at one his shows in late 2005, Im 5'10" barefoot but wear mostly canvas shoes, so I dont much extra height. Ted was wearing boots and had a good 4-5 inches on me. I'd bet hes at least 6'2". Im drunk watching Marked for Death and wondered how tall Steven Seagal was! Wow, I need to find something to do!
