5ft 7 (170.2 cm)

English journalist and TV presenter, who has worked on Sky Sports and presented Countdown on Channel 4. In the Mirror newspaper he mentioned "I am a sex symbol to the blind and the over-65s.

They'll usually ask one of several questions...
"Here, Jeff, how tall are you? You're shorter than you look on the box..."
I'm average height! I'm five foot seven and three quarters. The three quarters of an inch is very important. I'm taller than Tony Cottee for definite. I don't know why people make so much of my height.. If I'd been born in Guatemala I would be regarded as a giant, but unfortunately I was born in Hartlepool, so I'm average height.

This guy has height on his mind!

I think that 5'5" is a bit of a push for Jeff Stelling, he is probably somewhere around the 5'7" mark!

I like his modesty and life is not all about being a sex symbol, a person can lead a happy and successful life irrespective of their level of attractiveness!

I think he’s being overly modest that no-one would fancy him in his comments in the profile summary. Charismatic, charming, handsome chap. Not noticeably overweight, and he seems to think he has put himself because of his height.

Rob, He himself claimed to be only 5ft 5in on Soccer Saturday on 25-Nov-17.
Editor Rob
doesn't look like he'd be that short, maybe it was an exaggeration.

@Rob If you added Richard Whiteley you could probably create a Countdown tag ;-)
Editor Rob
funny thing is, I did try to get a quote from a couple of countdowners like him and the dictionary lady about their height...but never got a reply.

I enjoyed Jeff's stint on 'Countdown' and was upset when he left, though I respected that he chose to devote his time to his career as a sports presenter, which I knew only because my sports fan boyfriend told me!
He was always joking about his lack of height, which made him likeable and good fun to watch. Had he not joked about it, I would never have known!

Jeff has also claimed 5ft7.5 on soccer saturday.
Editor Rob
not sure he looks that tall, although he may well have lost half inch by late 50's.

Charlotte Hawkins is tall women, who is the lady on the picture on his left?

Do you think he may have lost some height given he's 61 now?

I mean you have both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump at 70, nine years older, having both lost near 2 inches!
Editor Rob
he could have lost a bit yes, although I wouldn't have thought anywhere as much as guys near 70.
