I knew Jimmy’s small, but 5ft2 for a guy is TINY! It’s equivalent to a girl of 4ft9.

He was often described as 5ft 1in in the 1980s. I'll give him 5ft 1.5in.

Wow, he's a tiny wee fella ... with a BIG voice! I don't know why I didn't realise. I saw Jimmy's video of "Don't Leave Me This Way" singing opposite Sarah Jane Morris and I sort of assumed she was a giant.
