Rob, any chance this guy is a 6ft 1 proper? Been watching the classic Corrie and he looks it to me, an inch taller than Keith Duffy (who I would guess at 6ft).
Editor Rob
He started out listing himself at about age 20 as 6 feet, but generally does pull off looking over it...I suppose the question whether it's 1/2 or 1 inch!

That was SO scary when Dev’s son was shot in tonight’s episode of ‘Coronation Street’. If the neighbours were asleep at the time, they won’t be now; I screamed the place out!

He can look borderline very tall on Corrie due to the predominantly short cast
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jan/22
Dev is having a ding dong in the Rovers with Jim MacDonald, who looks around the 5ft11.5 mark.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jan/22
Jimmi has just started as the new owner of the corner shop in Classic Coronation Street. The year was 1999 - the tail end. He was the tallest of the regular cast members for many a long year, yet his twins, a girl and a boy, grew up to be below average, especially the boy.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Oct/21
I thought Dev was bang out of order to focus all his attention on his daughter in the car wreck. At over 6ft, and well built, surely he could have helped both twins out together. They're only small! I don't blame the son for feeling rejected.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Jun/21
I did see the point as to why Dev refused to sell Nina a bottle of vodka while she's grieving. He kindly offered her a free box of chocolates instead, but if the girl is determined enough, she's going to get it regardless. It just so happened to be HIS shop - when his back was turned! 😯

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/May/21
Just listen, Dev, to what that evil boy, 19 in real life, Corey Brent, has to say when Dev breaks the news that young Sebastian Franklin has died: "But people get beaten up all the time - and they don't die!"

NOT SO in a normal, decent, respectable world. Nobody should ever be set upon. It's not against the law for nothing.

Get your daughter away from that scumbag, Dev!

6ft0.5, possibly more, I'm beginning to wonder....🤔
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/21
Come on, Dev - you really MUST sort out that demonic, two-faced coward your little girl is going out with. What a hateful, evil piece of 💩 he is and the sooner he's behind bars the better. 😝

Jimmi gets 6ft and half-an-inch.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Feb/21
Dev's reaction at his 16-year-old daughter having a date with a girl: "...but she's a female person!"

Ten out of ten Dev, but at least she can't get your little girl pregnant! You've got to keep up with the times, Dev! Girls date girls these days and vice versa - and so what? Couldn't you see it coming? I could! The girls have a connection, and that's just fine! 🌹

Jimmi gets 6ft and three-quarters-of- an-inch. 😉
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jan/21
I was very touched at Jimmi's 'Coronation Street' character, Dev's reaction at his daughter's faltering in her exams. Whereas the young girl's twin brother did well in his, personal circumstances have had a bad effect on the girl's schoolwork, and her father had nothing but encouragement for his daughter to carry on and start afresh.

What a lovely attitude.

6ft0.75. 😁👏
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Nov/20
It's rather unusual to have a parent of 15-year-old twins who actually stops them from playing age restricted video games in this day and age!

The boy is not very pleased, but the girl is too busy with her boyfriend - and planning to go on the pill! 🤭

Both youngsters seem well adjusted, and I believe that the daughter will wait until she turns 16.

Jimmi gets 6ft0.5.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Oct/20
I've seen that episode again and the girl isn't so young and naive as I thought! She's probably in her thirties and trying to make Dev a happy bunny.

Well, I'm sure she succeeded! 🐰
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Oct/20
Ooh! How vain can you get? A naïve young girl says she thinks he's in his 30s - 38 to be precise - and Dev replies that he's in his 40s! Ha ha ha - he's 55, and possibly plays older.

Admittedly this real-life father of two looks fighting fit for 55, but as for 38? Pull the other one!

Jimmi gets 6ft0.5. 😉👍
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Dec/19
Bad marks for videoing the misery of Michelle's and Robert's 'wedding'. He was even smiling and enjoying it. 😝

6ft and half-an-inch.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Oct/19
Jimmi gave a heartfelt performance this week on finding out that his teenage daughter, Asha, has been using his credit card. That will be a shock in its own right, but in yesterday's hour-long episode we find out the reason. Asha has been buying skin bleach online because she has been suffering at the hands of school bullies, more a mental torture, which is often the worst kind.

Furthermore, after Jimmi's Dev took his daughter for a visit to their homeland, she has a bee in her bonnet that Indian girls use skin bleach as regularly as white girls use fake tan - BUT AT LEAST THAT WASHES OFF! Poor Asha has had an allergic reaction to the product, leading friend Amy to believe she's self-harming, which, in a way, she is.

I had no idea that dark-skinned girls suffered like this; how terrible.

Jimmi gets 6ft and half-an-inch. It's not impossible that he's lost a bit by now. He's 54-and-a-half.

I can see why he’d look 6ft2 to some...the Corrie cast is predominantly short

@ Sandy Cowell

Many thanks! Have a great Sunday!

@ Nik - Indeed there is!

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

There is a first time for everything'. And a second, and a third!
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Nov/17
@ Nik - I am delighted to inform you that you are correct! 😂😹😂

@ Anonymous

Mikey North (My autocorrect tried to change it to Mikkes) is about 5'7.25". He has his own page on this website!

Nik said on 25/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

If my 41 year old eyes aren't mistaken it is the 22nd one along the top row!
Nik said on 25/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell

I will look forward to that mate!


Yes, one of the faces in the middle has 2 ears!

what do u all think about mikey north? a weak 5.9?
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/17
@ Nik - 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😹😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

I think I submitted it, but if I didn't, you have some more faces and another assurance that I will reply properly when I recover from the laughter!

✴ Observation Game! ✴

If this is submission No. 2, can you spot the difference in the faces?
Nik said on 23/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

Your autocorrect has no limits in terms of its rudeness, thank goodness you can write off to Rob if you send one of its "amendments" by mistake. I can work out what it was going to put instead of Duckworth, it has a shocking mind, I think you should bin it AND seal your bin up!
Seeing those old episodes of "Coronation Street" really must have been a trip down memory lane and it will have been sad to see the actors and actresses who are no longer with us. I am about to watch "Countdown" on channel 4 +1 in a matter of minutes!
My Wishlist is now on Rob's computer, stored in his inbox! I sent it not long after 6:00 this morning! I have 16 suggestions, 5 soap stars, 7 people from the world of sport, 2 TV presenters, a Newsreader, and a Comedian! I am now at the proof reading stage for my Health and Safety tips, they are stored on my notepad!

Have a great day!
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/17
.... YES! It was so unprintable that I can only add that it began with an 'S', which is, I suppose, better than an 'F', but bad enough nonetheless!
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Nov/17
@ Nik - Well as a matter of fact, I did catch the 2nd Coronation Street and I was pretty pleased because Sally has just said "Yes!" to Kevin's marriage proposal and she was celebrating with Hilda Ogden, Bett Lynch, Betty the Barmaid*,
Vera Duckworth, Deirdre Barlow and so it goes on! So many are no longer with us, it can get quite sad!
I will look at your soapy wishlist and probably end up adding a few ideas of my own!

* My autocorrect has been at it again! It thought Betty should be a Bargain rather than a Barmaid and what it tried to put for Vera, apart from 'Very' instead for her first name is UNPRINTABLE!
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/17
@ Nik - Excellent idea!
It is half-two in the morning
and the soaps will be on again on ITV2 in about 5 hours time! At 6, yesterday's vintage Coronation Street will be repeated. I missed it yesterday AND Tuesday!

I hope you gave your autocorrect a good roasting and that you are all the richer for it now!
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell

Guess what's on tonight?

Yeah, boot it up hill and down dale and issue it with a court order to pay back all its pocket money!

My health and safety tips will be posted shortly (they are almost written up) and I have a Wishlist, which includes Corrie stars, heading for South Glasgow too!

Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/17
@ Nik - Oh yeah! Physically boot it all the way up the road. Then pinch its pocket money and buy yourself a new autocorrect!
(If only that was possible...)
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
@ Rob - Yeah, I am with you and Sandy on this one!

@ Sandy Cowell - I will kick my autocorrect right up the road! It's also interesting to know that Jimmi is French!
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
@ Anonymous

Sinead is more 5'5.75" - 5'6" to be truthful.
Nik said on 22/Nov/17
@ Sandy Cowell - physically kick it, or get rid of it?

@ Connor - Good to see you on this page!

@ CD - I agree with your estimates!
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Nov/17
@ Nik - Don't worry about it! Kick your autocorrect regarding the matter! 😆

@ Connor - Hello Connor! How are you doing? Isn't it your Birthday round about now? 😉

Weak 6ft1 is possible

@ Sandy Cowell

Sorry for getting your name wrong, I did the message at 3:00 this morning! Have a great day mate and thanks for your answer!

Csimpson 6ft said on 21/Nov/17
I originally thought he was 6ft 0.5 at first, but after looking at him more I think a full 6ft 1 could be possible.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Nov/17
The average woman on Coronation Street is 5ft4.3! The figures for both males and females can be found at the top of the Coronation Street special section. The average man is 5ft8.8!
CD said on 21/Nov/17
@Anonymous Norris 5'6" you kidding? Malcolm Hebden is no more than about 5'3" nowadays, even Jack Shepherd and Sam Aston (Chesney) aren't quite 5'6", both more 5'5.5" range.
Nik said on 20/Nov/17
@ Samdy Cowell

I wonder what the average height for a woman is on Coronation Street?

Anonymous said on 20/Nov/17
There r quite a few male actors that r below average jack p.Shepard,the man who plays chesney.Sinead,his girlfriend looks to be 5.8.mikey north looks 5.8, Norris looks to b 5.6 ect,ect
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/17
Would have thought at least 6ft.
CD said on 20/Nov/17
I had him down as a decent 6ft 1. It's a toss up over who is the tallest in the show out of him and Dean Fagan (Luke Britton).
James B said on 20/Nov/17
I heard 6ft2 for him
Editor Rob
3 inches on near 5ft 11 John Michie in Corrie? I think that was rather optimistic whoever put 6ft 2 for him on the web...
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Nov/17
Yes! The average male on Coronation Street is now nearly the full 5ft9, the average height for a man, so Jimmi definitely made all the difference!
movieguy said on 20/Nov/17
I thought he was a bit taller actually like 6'2''. Maybe most of the cast of Corrie are on the short side.
Anonymous said on 19/Nov/17
Didn't know he was a full 6 foot although he is taller than most of the male actors in coronation street.
Nik said on 19/Nov/17
Yes, this seems about right! He is above 6'0" but I never thought he was the full 6'1"!
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/17
Lovely to find that Jimmi has his own page! AND WE HAVE A SIX FOOT SOAP STAR, well, just over! That should be pushing the average up for the Coronation Street men! I was looking at the male/female averages only this afternoon for the very first time. Isn't that ironic?

I didn't know Jimmi was French! He speaks English extremely well and has a beautiful speaking voice, and now I know why! As so often seems to be the case, people from abroad learn to pronounce their words far more thoroughly and precisely than people for whom this is their Mother tongue!

Jimmi gets 6ft0.5 and an enormous great welcome!
