I honestly don't think I'm at all glamorous. I think it must be because I'm tall that people think I am...With me it's the height. I'm 5ft 8ins tall - if I was 5ft 3ins no-one would notice me.

Jim and I once had a conversation about our favourite celebrity voices, and Jim cited Joanna’s, to which I wholeheartedly agreed, and I mentioned Stephen Fry’s as my favourite male voice.

I remember how Joanna laughed when she found out that in some part of our world, cats are known as β€˜meows’!

Fantastic! πŸ˜ΉπŸ˜ΉπŸ˜ΉπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

5ft8 peak and 5ft7 today. 🌹

in a small 2 inch heel she was still 5 inches shorter than miranda hart in flats my guess is 5ft 6 now and 5ft 7 peak never struck me as being a tall 5ft 8 lady even when younger.

πŸ’πŸŽ‚πŸˆ Happy Birthday Joanna! πŸˆπŸŽ‚πŸ’

I'd simply love to wish Joanna Lumley a Very Happy Birthday. She looks 20 years younger and her voice is like a lullaby! When she takes us on her travels, it's as if she's talking to a friend.

Have a felicitous, feline-filled Birthday! 😸😻😹

5ft8 peak, 5ft7 now.

I thought Joanna was 5ft7 or 5ft8, it doesn't matter - she's great!
From the New Avengers and Sapphire and Steel to Ab Fab, she never lets us down, and she's a humanitarian as well, not forgetting to mention SHE LOVES CATS!
Well, I love her, her elegance, her accent and her enthusiasm for life!
She gets 5ft7 now and 5ft8 for her peak from me! 🐈🐈🐈

Pics of late of her with ZoeBall and Gwendoline Christie. A very weak 5'6''now. Head and shoulders shorter than Gwendoline C.

Recent pics show her at least five inches shorter than 5ft 9 Prince Charles.

Saw her in person and up close two years ago in the lobby of Broadway theatre--no more than 5'6" now.

She must be 5'7 now at 66 how CAN she look similar to LΓ©o while she has 1-1.1 in more shoes

She's pretty much the same height as 5'11.5 Leonardo diCaprio in these shots wearing the tiniest of heels.

There is no way she's as low as 5'4" or 5'5". She was easily 5'8" at her peak, maybe dropped half an inch now she's in her mid-sixties.

My friend Steve was on a cruise with Joanna about 3 years ago. The cruise was going on the Nile and it was filmed 3 years ago my friend Steve is 5 ft 8 and joanna was four inches shorter so 5 ft 4 is probably on the money.

Looks about 6 foot in her best heels. Definitely tall for a woman.

Saw Joanna up close and in person a few weeks ago in NYC (in the lobby after her performance in La Bete). Allowing for her heels, she was much shorter than my wife and I expected. WelshJohnny is correct-- she's about 5'5" to 5'6"

In S&S Lumley often towered over McCallum, but then she probably wore heels in most of the 'assignments'.

i though she was quite taller than 1,73! about 1,80 was my guess! would you know how much she weighs???

in sapphire and steel she looked roughly about the same height as david mccallum, so this height sounds about right
