Looked a 2in shorter than the other Jeremy (Vine)

188cm is a stretch but I wouldn’t rule out 186cm peak

Rob, in this interview with Nicky Campbell, Jeremy claims to be 6ft2 at the 16:20 mark

Thanks for spotting it...I am not convinced barefoot he is as tall as that claim.

He certainly had the face of a 6'3 aristocratic type. Very long nose, similar aristocratic features to Ben Fogle. If there was a category for "Arrogant Men", Clarkson, Kyle and Paxman would be among the tallest!

I thought he was a 6'3 guy as well lol he just looks like a 6'3 guy

I always thought he was 6'3"

Have met him and he is def below 6ft
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/17
Maybe in certain shoes he could have been near enough 6ft3
don't know what to claim (5'11) said on 28/Aug/17
he looks like a 6'3 kind of guy. personality wise
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/17
Chances are he was a very solid 6ft1 guy in his prime, maybe 186cm.

@ Arch - Yes, that would be worth seeing! I can't see either on them backing down!

Did you see how mad Jeremy Kyle went with Ant and Dec when they flew out to America and secretly and brilliantly disguised, got themselves a slot on his show out there? One of them, Dec I think, pretended that the other one thought he was a cat and insisted on walking on all fours and eating from a cat bowl! Mr Kyle fell for it and when they came clean, he went completely berserk, pushing chairs over and screaming and shouting!
When he showed up on their 'Saturday Night Takeaway' by then he had simmered down, but good grief, he didn't like to be the butt of such humiliation! That he failed to recognise the two of them I think is what really did his brain in!

I might have mentioned this incident on Ant's page last year, but it was worth bringing up again, if only because it helped me remember how angry he could get being conned into believing someone wanted to live like a cat, and, up against the much bigger Jeremy Paxman, who has a far more serious reputation, I believe the fur would fly once more!

I genuinely do not think he is as listed. I met him 20 year ago and I was taller. My absolute low is 182.5 cm so I believe that he was 5'11 peak and probabky shorter today.

More like 6'1", met him when filming for University Challenge in early 2017 and even with a knee injury he was the second tallest person in the room. I'll go for 187cm. He was actually very nice.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Aug/17
Haha, Sandy, imagine Paxman and Jeremy Kyle in an argument :-)

Arch - I'd hate to interview him put it that way

The other way around, I'd hate to be interviewed by him!!! He makes even the most respectable of people look foolish!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/17
He does come off as extraordinarily vain...that smirk is his trademark

His ego is about 10 feet tall! xD
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Aug/17
Ha ha! Jeremies galore! Three fifths are 6 foot plus and two of them - bang on average height!
Well I do know this Jeremy, what with him being on our TV's so much, but as he's almost exclusively on 'geezery' programmes, I don't watch him unless I'm in the company of my boyfriend!
However, from what I have taken in, I'd say 6ft is a good estimate, so adding an inch for his peak height is common sense. It's hardly as though I've followed his career!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/17
Hes got very strong facial features that wouldn't look out of proportion on a 6ft3 guy and he's long-limbed. A 6ft1 guy with that build could get guessed that high.

I think he might still clear 6ft by a fraction today. At peak no less than 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/17
Might still be a strong 6ft today
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/17
Well he certainly has the face of a 6 ft 3 aristocratic type, as arrogant as you can get. I took for granted he was that, never seen him stabnding with anybody!
Rory said on 23/Aug/17
Having seen him up close I can say this looks bang on for his past and present height.
James B said on 23/Aug/17
you can tell he's on the tall side even by his face structure.

Tall or not certainly wouldn't want to work with him.
