@ Sandy Cowell - I’m beginning to think you could be right! I have seen pictures of him with Chris Gascoyne (⛽️ coin!) and Charlie Higson and it is questionable that he is nearly 5’8”!

John was born in the fine city of Salford!

I'm beginning to think that John might be shorter than this. Paul Whitehouse looked FAR more than a mere quarter-inch taller than John in a 'Fast Show' sketch I saw yesterday.

5ft7.

That was an enjoyable little programme I just saw for the first time! Called 'Zone of Champions', it included clips of loads of tiny little kittens doing stupid feats and a white poodle called Yannis, who broke a world record for a sport called 'poodle spinning', in which the mutt is taught to run on a swivel chair, causing it to rotate. I suppose a dog any larger wouldn't fit on the chair!

John gets 5ft7.75.

Ah! Early this morning, I am watching John play 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire!' with Jon Culshaw! Their chemistry is undeniable and John is playing for a lovely charity he feels indebted to and Jon is playing for an equally worthy cause. They won the amount before the £50, and were very pleased!

As I was watching 'The Fast Show' only the other day, I took in that he's much the height that Rob has put for him. Just a touch shorter than Playful Paul (Whitehouse), John gets 5ft7.75.

@ CD I'm inclined to agree with you there after having my suspicions that John is a touch shorter than Paul Whitehouse proved to be correct; I saw some pictures, and your 5ft7.5 seems to be pretty spot-on! 😊👍

Haven't watched him in Corrie for a while, but seem to remember him looking more 5'7" range with Sue Cleaver, perhaps 5'7.5", which is the guess I'm going for.

That's fantastic! Thank you Rob! I couldn't believe it when he strolled into the Rovers Return the other day in 'Classic Coronation Street', especially as I knew he'd been in it many years later, as someone else, I believe.

I read 5ft9 for this super-funny 'Fast Show' star, who has given me many hours of laughs! I never saw 'Cold Feet', but his many different 'Fast Show' identities have been enough to turn me into a firm fan of his, AND he was the barman in 'Men Behaving Badly'! I can believe 5ft8 for him; he's on par height-wise with Paul Whitehouse, that's for sure!

Favourite character in the 'Fast Show'? That's a difficult one, but I liked him in 'Jazz Club' (based on my mate Bob Harris, who I used to write to and went up town to see back in 1995, with my friend.)

What a great addition, and lovely surprise it is to have John as part of the Celebheights family; 5ft8 it is!😊
