Jessie Wallace's Height
5ft 1 (154.9 cm)
British Actress best known for her portrayal of Kat Slater in BBC soap EastEnders. She said in Manchester evening news in 2009 "I'm only 5ft 1in"
, inIVillage, "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"
and in a 2001 interview "at 5ft 1in, I felt I was top heavy"
. This photo was by Martin at an MCM Comic Con.

💐🎂🎉 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!

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
5ft 8.5 might be possible

Rob, she looks to be in a thick platform here, with a massive four inch heel ? She puts me in mind of a Morlock in The Time Machine .
Can't go above 4'11" I'm afraid.

I don't think anyone would laugh at my statement now anyway. I am not the sort of person to be brainwashed! Brainwashing doesn't work on me!

You people have been brainwashed by society for even stating such remarks, in a few thousandyears when the average human height have expended to its fullest potential (not too tall & not too short) They will all laugh at your statements

I don't agree with that to be truthful.

Lol "arguably short"
everything under 5'4 is short for a female

I think 5'0.5-5'1 is arguable, short.

As Ghelo said below, I've seen her in Waitrose here in East London, and in her sandals looked 4'11". Rob, you must have been pretty afraid here, she looks like she could bite a man's head off !
Editor Rob: I was afraid of the photographer more like, I think my blood pressure hits the roof at any of those MCM Comic Cons I went to!

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!

Jesus! She looks taller on eastenders but mind you she wears heels, my 11 year old sisters 5'1!

5 ft 1 looks accurate, maybe a smidge under
Ghelo said on 14/Aug/12

Mutton dressed as lamb? Yeah she was short didn't know THAT short, I'd have estimated 5'3".

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!!
