Jessie Wallace's Height

5ft 1 (154.9 cm)

English actress, best known for playing Kat Slater on BBC soap EastEnders. In the Manchester Evening news (2009) she said "I'm only 5ft 1in" and in a 2001 interview "at 5ft 1in, I felt I was top heavy".

Because I'm only 5ft 2in I can't afford to put on a lot of weight or I end up looking like Oompa Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. If I were tall then it wouldn't bother me, but being quite short, I have to be a bit careful. Sometimes I see myself on wide screen, which makes me look wide, and that makes me think I must cut back.
The problem is, I'm just 5ft 2in and if I get too muscly, I'll look like Danny DeVito - not very sexy for a woman!

“I’m not a copper - I’m only pretty!” said Kat in today’s Classic EastEnders! 😂😂😂

She’s having a snap at Dr Anthony! 👌🏼🐊

5ft1 for this jolly young bundle of fun!

Well, Phil is fighting Kat’s corner now that she and son, Tommy, have been kidnapped by that corrupt and evil solicitor woman.

He does love Kat and her sons.

What a stinking Christmas surprise for Kat and Alfie to suddenly spot Phil back in the square! Sod that!

The rarely seen Slater sister, Belinda, has shown up for Zoe’s 18th Birthday. The family decide to go down to the Queen Vic pub to celebrate. Belinda says, “Do they take plastic?” to which Kat replies, “Why? You gonna get your boobs out?” 😂

Give over! Jessie is 51 now and looks SO much younger!

Belated Birthday Wishes to Jessie for the 25th.

Jessie’s perceived height is much greater than that of Little Mo, but they are in actual fact the same height.

5ft1. 😄💐

I’d say 5’ 0 would be about right.

“Am i interrupting summink?” asks Kat to cousin Stacey as she walks in on her in a precarious position with a blow-up doll!


5ft1. No WAY has Jessie begun the shrinking process yet.

It’s great to see that the Slater girls have made their debuts in Classic EastEnders. We have a lot of fun to look forward to, and also more than a little heartbreak, as Little Mo battles against her abusive husband.

Jessie is one woman who has never let herself go; if anything, she’s become better looking with time.

5ft1. 🐈🐈‍⬛

She is probably 5’1,although 5’2 seems too much

Jessie, as Kat Slater, was funny in last night's episode of 'EastEnders'. She and her family were sticking hefty objects in front of the door so as to stop the money-mad landlords coming in and when her little boy came downstairs to see what the kerfuffle was in aid of, she blamed it on A DRAFT!

That must have been some draft! 😂😂😂

Jessie gets 5ft1. 🍻😋🥝🥝

She’s not like an Oompa Loompa (nowt wrong with that!)!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Sep/19
💐🎂🎉 Happy Birthday Jessie! 🎉🎂💐

Hard to believe as it is, our Jessie turns 48 today - and looks better than ever!

This actress has one of the most addictive, filthy laughs I've ever heard!

Have a great Birthday, Jessie!

5ft1. 😀🌹

How tall would katie jarvis who plays hayley Slater be? She's certainly a lot taller than Jessie my guess would be 5ft 8 range but she's been listed as 5ft 8.5 and 5ft 9 too
Editor Rob
5ft 8.5 might be possible

shes not even 5.8 with heels!
Arch Stanton said on 29/May/17
I think 5'0.5-5'1 is arguable, short.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/16
If ever there should be a poster girl for the gutsy shorter girls among us, I'd plump straight for this one here! She's nobody's fool in EastEnders and she's the female equivalent of a regular dude!
I'd like to see someone try to get the better of Kat - it just wouldn't happen!

I thought she would be about 5ft4 on easenders
teej said on 27/Jul/13
Jesus! She looks taller on eastenders but mind you she wears heels, my 11 year old sisters 5'1!
Shaun said on 8/Sep/12
5 ft 1 looks accurate, maybe a smidge under
Ghelo said on 14/Aug/12
Shes 4 ft 11
Doug said on 7/Apr/09
Mutton dressed as lamb? Yeah she was short didn't know THAT short, I'd have estimated 5'3".
Daii said on 26/Aug/08
Looks correct. Having seen her standing next to 6'0 Shane Richie, even in heels she was a good 7 inches shorter than him, I would say 5'1.5

You Are Right,

Having Seen Her On Eastenders For Years,

In Comparison To The Others Whose Height I Know,

Yes, She Does Look This Height More Or Less, Well Done!!
