How tall is Jonathan Ross

Jonathan Ross Height

6ft 1 (185.4 cm)

English television presenter and chat show host. He has said on his show "I'm 6ft 1 and a half", and has claimed that mark consistently, even back in a 1998 Mirror newspaper also saying "I'm 6ft 1 1/2ins". In Piers Morgan: The Classic Interviews he also mentioned his height: "7ft 7in, but on TV I look about 6ft 1in."

He looks the same height as jim carrey. Both of them strong 6'1.
stiggles said on 23/Dec/22
A smidge over 6ft.
Darksol64 said on 2/Aug/22
Is he wearing 2-3" shoes in the pic? Looks huge, like 6'3-6'4 or something.

If not I guess that just goes to show you how big 6'1 really can be at times!

Don't know anything else about the guy so I'll just vote 6'1 as listed. Can't be less.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/22
Ferguson looks to have the edge in that clip, so 6ft1ΒΎ for him could be argued as a potential peak if Ross was 6ft1ΒΌ which looking at 90's clips seems plausible

that's an anomaly right there, Ross has always hit me as a solid 6'1
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 5/Jan/22
@Rampage with Craig peak he look the same height and isn't Craig like weak 6'2 back in the day? so 6'1 for Ross is legit and in cm i think he's 186 cm

I've been enjoying watching Jonathan as a judge on 'The Masked Dancer'. He's a great laugh, which I knew anyway, and I like the rapport the judges have with each other.

I would give Gatiss the edge in that photo...look a bit more closely

I found another photo of Ross next to Mark Gatiss from 2005, Jonathan really looked taller than Mark: Click Here
And this photo of Ross with Jodie Kidd from 2004 which Jodie wearing very large heels: Click Here
I am sending one more photo of Ross next to Naomi Campbell from 1993, Ross looked over four inches taller than her: Click Here
Rob, you've met Tom Felton, Mark Gatiss, Pamela Anderson and Joan Collins in person and Ross next to them really looked over 6ft 1. What's the chance that you will give him 186cm as his peak height?
Editor Rob
Ross might be slightly closer than Mark...Ross could be a guy who earlier in the day managed that 1.5 mark, the same way Gatiss might creep over 6ft 1 too for a measurement at 11am.

Looks a really solid 6’1” guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Feb/21
Rory, I think strong 6ft1 peak is fair and more than likely hit 6ft2 first thing
Rory said on 23/Jan/21
Ross certainly isn't an easy guy to pinpoint height wise. Looks anything from 6ft0.25 to 6ft1.75 on different occasions. I think solid 6ft1 peak though overall. Would have had a chance of 6ft2 out of bed in the 90s.
Cb91 said on 18/Dec/20
People might want to watch "The big talent show" 1997 with Stephen Mulhern. Barely an inch between them height wise at the end of Stephens act! I'd give Ross 6ft and a half max. Either that or Stephen needs an upgrade from 5ft 11 and a half. To 6ft easily, possibly more.

He could look 187cm at times

i thoguht the original 187 listing was maybe a fraction to high. and i feel this could be fraction to low. Of course, today he could very likely be this height or 185 flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/20
Theroux looks at least 6ft2Β½ w/h Ross. More likely him being a bit over 6ft2 than Jonathan being under 6ft1

no you are wrong Rob you can check with ronaldo that u listed him 185.4 cm
Rory said on 6/Sep/20
No chance whatsoever he was anything under 6ft1 peak. Look at him in this video with 5ft11.75 Joe Calzaghe. Looks comfortably 1-1.5 inches taller than Joe. Leaving him at 6ft1 is fine for now but there's more chance Ross was a bit over it than under.

he looked shorter than 6'1 Cristiano Ronaldo on the show. I think JR is 6ft 0.25"

185cm peak max height. I can't see a cm over that.
berta said on 16/Jun/20
he laways have claimed 6Β΄1 1/2 i think he really have been measured at that height. but maybe earlier and is 186? 6Β΄1 is a low for him. average guess seems very low
Rory said on 29/Apr/20
Peak I can definitely believe 6ft1.25, it's today where his height is more of a mystery. He's almost 60 and often has quite poor posture and can look anywhere between 183 and 186 still. I guess 6ft1.25 peak and 6ft0.75 today seems likely although I wouldn't discount the idea of him still measuring 6ft1 when standing tall.
Thatch said on 14/Apr/20
Potentially 186cm in his absolute prime
Nearly 180cm guy said on 3/Apr/20
Ross definitely has shrunk in the last 10 years. But in 2009 he could still look like a 186 cm guy next to Pamela Anderson: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

Ross really was one of the more decent men of 186 cm tall. Rob, I still hope you give him 6ft 1.25 as his peak height.

I doubt merchant is 6’7.5”. Better chance he falls under 6’7 than over
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Feb/20
If Ross was ever 6'1 1/2 then Stephen Merchant is not below 6'7 1/2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Feb/20
186cm peak is possible
Nearly 180cm guy said on 14/Jan/20
Thank you for your answer Rob! Looking at Ross, I think that 15-25 years ago he was a real 186 cm guy and fact that he looked taller than Mark Gatiss proves it. Today he is approaching the age of 60, sometimes with a weaker posture he may look only 184 cm but I believe he is still measuring above this sign. Rob, how about giving him a peak height of 6'1.25" and the current height of 6'0.75"? Do you see this as a possible offer?
Editor Rob
I still haven't decided, but 1.25 may well be the figure he did look in 90's.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 13/Jan/20
Ross really could have once been a 186 cm guy. In 2005 he looked taller than Mark Gatiss: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
In the first photo Rob you can see Mark's footwear, and here you can see Ross's footwear: Click Here Click Here
Their footwear looked similar. I believe that Mark Gatiss is a real 6'1" guy but Ross really looked taller than him. Rob, Ross really deserves an upgrade to 6'1.25".
Editor Rob
he could well have measured near 6ft 1.5 early like 9.30am at a Doctor.

Might be eventually worth adding as she's been involved in writing some good films over the years, and I think the online 'guess' is a bit high.

Merchant look a full 16cm taller than Ross in the clip i posted. Much aware is Ross is a bit lower than 6'1 like a full 6'0 3/4 guy and Merchant a big 6'7 probably he could hold a few mm over.

Only caught a fleeting glimpse of this, but he didn’t look much taller than 5’11”-ish Micky Flanagan (who I was surprised at the stature of- always struck me as a fairly short and stocky bloke on stage)
jabez said on 3/Apr/19
I met him at a comic convention back in 2014. I'm 6'0" and he did not give the impression of being an inch and a half taller. Pretty close to me I'd say, although I can't recall what kind of shoes he was wearing.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Dec/18

No offense, but it seems pointless to list all the celebs you think are 6'0 7/8" and 6'1 1/8", especially on a page like Jonathan Ross.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/18
Hi Arch, no not at all. I simply went to the β€œCelebs my height” page, typed in 6ft1 and skimmed all the guys there and came up with this in like 2 minutes.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Nov/18
Was that list from memory Rampage? That's scary, I've not even heard of a lot of those, much less know what height they are to the nearest 18 inch!!Reagan, Ramsey, Keanu Reeves, Cary Grant, Henry Cavill I'd simply think of as weak 6'1 off the top of my head, can't think of any more!

Jonathan gets a Birthday 6ft1. Probably taller when younger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Sep/18
Thanks Sandy...again though as I’ve said to Rob constantly...they’re mere suggestions. All indistinguishable I’m sure if you lined them up. It looks so pedantic and an epic waste of time but I’m actually thinking about the bigger picture and how they generally fair next to others. Can they look over 6ft1 (even 6ft2) enough to qualify for a fraction over...or do they constantly struggle to look 6ft1 with others, taller or shorter?
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/18
@ Rampage Clover - Your lists were so worth your efforts. I for one keep referring back to them.
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Sep/18

Now, late 50s - 6'1 is his morning height. Remember him saying he was just over 6'2 on his BBC show... But that's silly.

He had an inch on denzel when the latter was promoting the taking of Pelham 123 in 2009 186cm seems like a reasonable figure.

How come, Rob?

He’s pretty well known
Editor Rob
He is well known in the UK, but really not many even search for his height these days...I suppose there are a fair few in that bracket, so maybe I won't dismiss it entirely!

At this stage, I think unlikely.

Danimal said on 11/Mar/18
Why not give him the 6'1.5" that he claimed? Seems pretty specific.

Being specific makes a claim more accurate? Let's give Stallone 5'10.75", then!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Mar/18
No I think it’s likely he did get measured at that mark but possibly a bit earlier in the day. 186cm is a figure I’d definitely have no problem supporting
Danimal said on 11/Mar/18
Why not give him the 6'1.5" that he claimed? Seems pretty specific.

It was always a possibility, I remember him and Des Lynam saying they were both 6ft 1.5.

But, sometimes people do add fractions. George Harris has his height officially listed at 6ft 2.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/18
Madeley was always a 6ft2 range (but more 189cm than 187cm). Not convinced he was quite 6ft3 guy
miko said on 11/Mar/18
Maybe in his younger days he got an earlier day measurement of 6'1.5 and has stuck with that ever since.

6'1 range in his prime though definitely, maybe a tad under it today.
BilboBaggins12 said on 11/Mar/18
I believe Jonathan Ross is definitely around the 6' 1" mark,having seen him hold his own standing next to veritable 6"+'ers over the years. BTW, Richard Madeley's height needs a slight upgrade to around the 6' 3" mark. If you check out 'An Audience With The Spice Girls' (from late '97) on YouTube, there's a comedic segment in that, where Ross, Madeley and other men are standing side-by-side shoeless, and it's clear that Richard Madeley is noticeably taller than Jonathan Ross (who still looks tall/6'+ in his own right).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Feb/18
I think Brosnan, Firth and then Ross.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jan/18
Rob, who do you think measured tallest peak out of Jonathan Ross, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan?
Editor Rob
All guys are arguably quite close at their peak, I think probably Firth/brosnan may well be so close that it would be hard to pick the taller. At the moment I give Firth an edge, but I can see an argument for Pierce being the same mark too.
Frost said on 23/Jan/18
@Rory I don't think the shrinkage changes much the older you get. If anything with poorer posture, weaker joints I'd assume measuring your tallest becomes the trickier part in late age.

But I can't say I'm an expert in that regard so I may be wrong.
Rory said on 26/Dec/17
In the 80s/90s...6ft2 out of bed, 6ft1-1.25 lowest
Today...6ft1.5 out of bed, 6ft0.75 lowest(you shrink a bit less morning to night when older)

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/17
You'd expect a guy with his ego to claim 6ft3!

Looks 10cm taller than 172cm Danny Baker. 5'11.5"
Rory said on 10/Oct/17
There's good pictures out there of Jonathan Ross next to Mark Gattiss from around ten years back and I think Ross does just have the edge. I think they alone are good proof that 6ft1.25 peak for Ross is likely. I think 6ft1.5 is believable for a midday measurement.
MJKoP said on 14/Sep/17
I guess Google is trolling Gaben pretty hard. They currently advertise him as 5'7"! Rob, use your crowbar to smack some sense into both of them, to list heights accurately(and of course to finally reach that coveted number three, respectively)!!!

Editor Rob
Google isn't as smart as it pretends, it grabs data for info boxes from various sources, probably a few sites already gave Gabe 5ft 7 in the past. He does look taller than 5ft 7 though!

James B said on 7/Aug/17

Never liked Wossy. On his chat shows seems really obnoxious but I did recall someone I used to know met him in real life and said he was very quiet which I find weird.

I don't think obnoxious is the right word, Jeremy Kyle is obnoxious. I always got the impression that Ross has a bit of an inferiority complex and overcompensates with his dress and humour. I think he can come across as overly confident and I think it's a cover.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Aug/17
Rob, is it at all possible that he was 6ft1Β½ for real in his 20's-30's?

I think today he still looks a decent 6ft1 when standing tall. It is also possible he got measured earlier in the day at that mark.
Editor Rob
he may well have measured near it

Lenad the 5ft9.75in stud said on 22/Jun/17
186-187cm I suspect when younger. He looked pretty tall back then so no less than 6'1 when younger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/17
Peak: 6ft1ΒΌ(186.1cm)
Today: 6ft1(185.4cm)

Rob, maybe in another couple of years if he starts to look a bit under 6ft1 more frequently you can move his current height to 6ft0ΒΎ and give him that 6ft1ΒΌ peak?

Right now I think he hasn't lost anything noticeable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/17
I think he'd hold a decent 6ft1 even now. For a guy whose Obsessed With Height and even gloats about his own stature...he's got horrendous posture. I don't think he's really lost anything to be perfectly honest. If standing tall today I'm confident he'd be somewhere in the 185-186cm range. There isn't really much difference in how he looked in the 80's-90's compared to now.
Nik said on 27/May/17
He's tall enough!

James B said on 19/May/17
Rob 186cm not impossible say 20 years ago?
Editor Rob
I suppose it is possible, at the moment I think roughly 6ft 1 or at worst a little under if standing tall, but yeah 15-20 years ago 186.
Rory said on 3/May/17
No he peaked at 6ft 1.25 and would still be 6'0.75-6ft 1 today when stood well.
Don't know what to claim(5'11") said on 30/Mar/17
He's not leaning over at all. That's his posture, and I suspect he has a bit of a hunched back. However, since this is a posting that has no peak and current height, as of right now, he is no more than 182cm. So that needs to be remembered when comparing his height to others. His posture is always the same.
Rory said on 29/Mar/17
Lol Yh because there with Tennant Jonathan is clearly standing ramrod straight isn't he ? Lol it's common sense. If someone leans over they lose some height, try it yourself and see.
Don't know what to claim(5'11") said on 28/Mar/17

Ross is an easy guy to judge height wise Imo. 186cm in his prime, 185cm today when measured but stands like a 183-4cm guy often.

The only reason why Ross looked that short was because he had bad posture. But I doubt he would be over 185cm even when standing at his straightest.

I can imagine Jonathan Ross crying into his cocoa if he read the two March comments! He'd tell you to march off!
Jonathan is extremely proud of his 6ft1 plus! I've heard him talk about his height a fair few times on his array of shows! No, I can't see him being below 6ft1 now, and 6ft1.5 at his all time high!

I think jonathan ross is only 6'0 if Darius Campbell have his modesty at 6'3.5 , check the link campbell have 0.5 less footwear but looks a big 8cm taller than ross.

Looking at him again in the 90's, he did look his claim at times. Definitely not under this. A solid 6ft1 guy

James B said on 26/Sep/16
Rob 6ft.05 could be possible for Ross since he claimed "6'1 1/2" which might have been a shoe measurement.

Vince vaughn towered him as well and he isn't a full 6ft5.

Vaughn was/is six-five at full stretch taller than craig killbourn by a half inch back to back but it was definitely a good four inches there between them vaughn did still look big next to ross kinda like the size difference between basketball player and a tennis player
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
Brosnan edged him out if I'm not mistaken
Johan said on 20/Jan/17
You guys need to look up Jonathan Ross with Pierce Brosnan on his show.

Pierce was a 6'1.5" guy at that time and Ross was shocked at his height, he expected a shorter guy. So 187 cm peak is fairytale nonsense.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/17
I'd make the arguement for 6ft1ΒΌ(186cm). For years he's stuck with 6ft1Β½ mainly (may have said 6ft2 once though) and he does look in the 6ft1 zone most of the time. Chances are he did get measured at his claim but maybe a bit earlier…
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/16
Still looks 185/186cm today
berta said on 18/Nov/16
i have hard time believe he was only 185 peak. maybe mow but i think he looked 186 and sometimes 187 on his show. imean he is maybe 2-3 cm taller than vin diesel when he is in his 5 cm lifts
Rory said on 26/Oct/16
I think he's a guy who needs a peak and current height, there's no way he looks as tall today as he did 15 yrs back. I suppose that could be mostly down to poor posture, but some loss is also possible/probable aged 56. 6'1.25 peak,6'0.75 today.
S.J.H said on 20/Oct/16
Ross look at most 6'0 with 6'4 darius campbell. Campbell had 0.6-0.7 sneakers and ross had 1.1-1.3 dress shoes. Either campbell is 6'5 or ross is only 6'0 and campbell is only 6'4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/16
Rob, could 186cm be closer?

I don't particularly like his obnoxious personality not the way he talks to guests but I do think he's 6ft1 range bare minimum.
Editor Rob
maybe he did once measure 6ft 1.5 at a morning appointment.
Anonymous said on 8/Oct/16
Slightly less than jack Whitehall on the Jonathan Ross show.

Downgrade needed.
Alex said on 7/Oct/16
Wow never thought of him as this tall. I would've though 5'7 - 5'10
Rory said on 2/Oct/16
It's easy to see how he would claim 6'1.5. Before midday in his prime he probably would have measured around it, and even a 186 afternoon measurement would likely be rounded to 6'1.5, rather than saying 6'1 and a quarter or over 6'1.
James B said on 26/Sep/16

nah, I think he was a 6ft 1er
Rory said on 19/Sep/16
Even with mostly poor posture Ross looks a good half an inch taller than Karl Urban in this video. It wouldn't surprise me if when measured he had an inch on Urban actually judging by this. Footwear looks similar, Ross a chunky sneaker, Urban a boot.

Rory said on 12/Sep/16
I think in the 1980s/90s he was C-D range. Today though I'd say E, and looking under that with poor posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Rob, which of these would you give him peak?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm

maybe C isn't unreasonable for him.

I don't think he's under 185cm.
Rory said on 27/May/16
Actually the footage with Froch shows how yes with poor posture Ross looks 6ft, the same as Froch. Every so often though he stands up tall next to Froch and suddenly can look 186.
Rory said on 27/May/16
@Johno, this video 8mins 34 secs...definitely taller, how much is debatable at least half an inch though.

Click Here

With Ronaldo, Yh he looked shorter unquestionably, but it was clear to see his posture was shot, up straight certainly ten yrs ago anyway if not today too I doubt Ronaldo would measure taller.
Johno said on 26/May/16
Rory, do you mind showing me where he looks taller than Froch?
Rory said on 26/May/16
No taller than Froch ? You should have gone to spec savers.
Johno said on 25/May/16
No taller than Carl Froch who Rob has met and looked an 1-inch shorter than Ronaldo whose height as laser measured and measured by Tussauds in shoes.

This listing seems like his morning height with some rounding.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/16
Not a great shot for height since they're both leaning in. I think Ross would have over 1in on Grylls though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
Rob, maybe 186cm is closer?

I think his 6ft1Β½ claim holds some validity. May very well have got measured at that mid-morning. He still looks a decent 6ft1 today.
James B said on 20/Mar/16
So rob could he have peaked at 6'1.5 since he did have at least 2 on wills?
Editor Rob
he may not have been wrong about measuring 6ft 1.5, it's just whether he was that mark more at 9am or not.
James B said on 17/Mar/16
Rob 10 years ago you said he looked at least 2 inches taller than Bruce Willis when he appeared on his show
Editor Rob
yeah he did back then.
Johno said on 24/Feb/16
I believe David Tennant just about looks 6'0 next to Rob and this is the height i am giving him. Him and Ross look similar in height, maybe Ross has the edge?

Tennant 6'0
Ross 6'0.25
Adam 1.88 m said on 20/Feb/16
There definitely didn't look like 6 inches between him and Rob Brydon on the Jonathan Ross show.
Rory said on 18/Feb/16
The thing is on that same episode David Tennant whose around 6'1 himself, similar to Ronaldo also had a good inch on Ross..and yet when Tennant was on the show a few yrs back and Ross was stood better, Ross edged him and also if you type in Ross and Tennant pictures, there's a a number where Ross looks taller than him, also look at his shoulder level, despite being a good inch shorter than Ronaldo on the day i noted how his shoulders were higher, itd be unusual for someone an inch shorter to have higher shoulders. No one could convince me Ross in the 80s at least was any less than a solid 6'1, looked tall and my mum actually said she met him in either '89/90 and remarked upon how tall he was. Imo..i think he needs a peak and current height...peak- 6''0.75.
Johno said on 17/Feb/16
@Rory, with the lean, Ross lΓ²oks around 1.25-1.5 inches shorter then Ronaldo. I don't believe he would lessen the gap to less then 1-inch if he were to straighten to up and when Ronaldo first walked in, the difference was there to see. Ronaldo was measured at 6'1.

Ronaldo 6'1
Jonathon Ross 6'0.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/16
Rob, what's the likelihood of him measuring 184cm?
Editor Rob
I would say that he probably can still measure around 6ft 1, I think just at times his posture isn't that great...but standing tall he looks 6ft 1.
Idk said on 12/Feb/16
Ronaldo is taller than listed on here. He's definitely 186 through out most of the day. I think Ross is full 185 today but has bad posture
Rory said on 12/Feb/16
How someone looks when standing with terrible posture like Ross did with Ronaldo is irrelevant.. You have two 6'1 men. One stands with flawless posture(Ronaldo)..and the other stands hunched doesn't take Einstein to work out in that case thered be a height difference,however, put Ross next to Ronaldo with military posture and theyd be very very close.
Johno said on 12/Feb/16
With Ronaldo, he looked a bit under 6'0 and even in the after photos you clearly see there would be a solid inch between them but then again Ronaldo did have some thick-heeled formal shoes on but if Ronaldo is 6'1 then Ross looks around 6'0 flat.

Johno said on 29/Jan/16
With Carl Froch who Rob has at 6'0, who you can argue looks 5'11.75 was virtually the same height as Ross in the face-off, i can give 0.5 inches to Ross just to clear any doubt therefore, Ross appears 6'0.25-6'0.5 with Froch.
Rory said on 13/Jan/16
Yes shorter than Ronaldo, however his posture was terrible, his posture when they shook hands was what id expect from a 75 yr old. Actually, his shoulder level, for what its worth was higher than Ronaldos and I think a 30 yr old Ross with strong posture would measure a few mms more than Ronaldo.
Al said on 12/Jan/16
Clearly shorter than Ronaldo Rob, so 6'1 is out of the question. 6 foot at best.
James B said on 9/Jan/16
6'1 with an obnoxious personality
Rory said on 14/Nov/15
On his show with Tennant and Ronaldo he looked just a solid 6ft next to them...but his posture looked poor to say the least, i don't know if he's naturally got a slight stoop, or if its a bad habit hes got into as hes aged. Assuming its just a habit then i think stood at his tallest in the 80s 186cm is possible, but hes not an easy person to judge can look as low as a weak 6 ft and as high as a solid 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
So, was he actually originally at a fraction over 6ft2 Rob?
Editor Rob
in 2004 he could have been 2.25 I believe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
[Editor Rob: I am pretty sure mid 90's I read him being described 6ft 3...seriously! I thought he was a strong 6ft 2 to begin with]

Ring any bells, Rob?
Editor Rob
yes to begin with, then he said 6ft 1.5 with des lynam I remember.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/15
Rob, did he start out at 6ft2?
Editor Rob
possibly for a short while until his 6ft 1.5 quote was found
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/15
How tall do you think he'd measure out of bed?

he could be almost 6ft 2 range. He's at an age he might no be shipping a few mm's.

I didn't see the difference in shoes but standing next to David Walliams (who according to this site is 6'2.5) Ross looked 2 inches shorter (at least).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/14
He could look 6ft1-2 range back in the 90's. But with an ego that big, I'm surprised he didn't claim 6ft3

He is smaller than 6ft1, Miranda Hart has flats on and he has shoes and they are the same height, subtract his shoes advantage he is about 6ft

1.85 m, 83 kg said on 27/Jan/14

That's good for you. It's got nothing to do with complexes. Should I believe you or the facts presented by Rob? In a standing tall stare down with 6'0" Carl Froch in the same footwear, whom Rob has a photo with, he was exactly the height. I'm sorry, but the evidence just doesn't support you. Either you're friend is only 6'1", you're completely useless at gauging height, you're a liar, or a combination of the three. Take your pick, those are your only options.
Jacky said on 26/Jan/14
I get people have a complex but why do people always want to downgrade all the time. I've met Jonathan with my friend who's a legit 6'3 dude (basketball player) and he was only maybe just over an inch taller than Jonathan. Both had similar dress shoes as well.

I believe Ross' 6'1.5 claim
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 21/Jan/14
Getting there. 1.84 m max height.
Paul177 said on 19/Jan/14

johnmcc said on 26/Dec/13
Yeah its like people are saying he is and was no more than a 184cm guy. He was noticeably shorter than Pierce Brosnan years ago on his show and i believe Brosnan was a legit 187 guy at peak.

James said on 19/Nov/13
Does look more 184 than 187 although he has poor posture alot of the time. Peak height probably 187 but he definetly isn't that tall anymore.

6'1.5 in shoes maybe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/13
I'm not convinced that Ross is quite this tall in the middle of the day if measured.
He can look 6ft1.5 at times but he can also look 6ft0.5. Chances are he's inbetween them.

But there is no way this guy is 5ft11.5
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 19/Jun/13
tall person

In no scenario has he ever looked 6'4". He's is maximum 6'1/2" (1.84 m). This listing is stubborn.
tall person said on 18/Jun/13
He looks like he is 6'4" when he is on his show
cole said on 6/Jun/13
He can't be this tall. Jay Z is probably about 186-187 cm and Ross was at least 2 cm shorter with bigger footwear, so he's a 183-184 cm guy. Craig Ferguson I believe is a slightly taller guy, 186 cm or so.
johno said on 15/Apr/13
About same height as carl froch. Carl looks like a weak 6'0 thus giving ross a height of 6'0.5 is pretty much his max.

Carl froch 5'11.75 - 6'0
Jonathon ross 6'0.5 ( most likely his max height )
5ft10guy said on 13/Apr/13
He isnt this height a 5ft11.5 man lets say 6ft(justin timberlake) is equal to his height. Lets say for John sake6ft0.5 is more accurate it doesnt make sense that justin timberlake is exactly the same height c'mon

Looked half an inch taller than 6'0" Carl Froch at an absolute maximum in his show yesterday. Rob, check it out, excellent for estimating. The man isn't 6'1 1/2". I know you must've used him as a reference for many people but it's really time for a downgrade.
miko said on 7/Apr/13
Just watched him staredown with Carl Froch on his show, and Ross wasn't any taller. Rob has Froch listed at 6'0. No way on this earth is there 1.5' between those two.
Lenad said on 29/Mar/13
he was pretty much the same height as Will Smith and Jim Carrey who i believe are strong 6'1. Ross is a solid 6'1. The 6'0 max claims are bunk
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/13
He actually looks a bit shorter than Brand to me Silent D even accounting for Brand's heels. Recently Brand had on relatively normal sized boots and he still looked near an inch taller than Ross. He always looks 6'1" range, but next to Brand and Justin Timberlake recently I do think 186cm might be what he is today but he's only 52, I doubt he's lost any height yet.

For Rob its a money maker. For me and several others on here its a source of entertainment and we enjoy contributing to the site. Unfortunately many clearly have serious height issues and frequently troll the site attacking Rob for listing celebs 1-2 inches taller than apparently are and warring with fellow users over the matter of a cm.

UK183cm says on 21/Dec/12
Seeing Jonathan standing near vernon kay on tv earlier, (Text Santa program) I was surprised actually how much shorter he was. The difference really looked 4 inches at least, certainly more than 2.5 inches as this listing would suggest. I think he has got to be somewhere in region of 184. Maybe Vernon Kay is taller than 6'4" too? Who knows. I imagine Ross would look a similar height to David Tennant in a photo with Rob.

Vernon Kay made Philip Scofield look 5 ft 9 and him look 6 ft 5!! Easily 8 inches on Schofield yet Schofield is apparently 5 ft 11 and Vernon 6'4"!!
Frankie said on 22/Dec/12
A friend of mine has met Jonathan Ross and has taken a picture with him. i have also walked past him in Hampstead, London. He was pretty much my height and I am a strong 5'11. My friend is 5'10 and Jonathan was definitely not 3.5 inches taller, he didn't even look a full 2 inches taller, but he doesn't have the greatest of postures. I guarantee you, Jonathan is 6ft maximum. I think his listing, and all chat show hosts should be more accurately listed, as we then gauge and compare all the subsequent guests height to them!!! The more accurately we list the hosts like these, the closer we'll be to the truth than to comparing them to other celebs!!

Greenbolt says on 27/Sep/12
The logic everyone is using here is incredibly fallacious; it's the same logic that everyone applies when judging other celebrities' heights as well: "Well, see, Jay Z is 6'2'' and Jonathan Ross only looks a half inch shorter."

Because Jay Z actually LOOKS very close to 6'2", at least 6 inches on Kanye West and edged out Ross. We are all guessing here but they're educated guesses. Yes, Ross has looked 6'0.5" on occasion with The Rock, Clive Owen, Hugh Jackman and Willis and is not impossible, but having seen him next to hundreds of people on his show he almost always appears 6'1" range. most cleebs have photos or videos where they're height can appear to fluctuate 1 inch either way. Funny how people are always drawn to the very shortest theyve looked and then be certain they are that short. Go with the majority, and Ross almost always looks a solid 6'1".

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 12/Dec/12
I find this Copnovelist195's posts very amusing, but there's no way he's 6'2" range. 6' flat at the absolute MAX for Ross, Johno proved this.

Anything under 6 ft 1 is too low, trust me I've seen practically every episode of the J. R. show and have seen how he compares over the years. He's a solid 6'1". In the recent Ali G Savile sketch at the comedy awards Ross look 5-6 inches taller than Ben Kingsley and 1-2 inches shorter than Sacha Baron Cohen. You could argue 6 ft 1 185 or 186cm but I'm pretty sure he's not below this. i think this is genuine and see no reason why he'd lie about it. Its not as if he's claiming 6 ft 2.

I once saw him step out of a brownish pink Ford Thunderbird (not the classic one) and walk into his big Georgean house on the borders of Hampstead and Golders Green. He looked at me as if I was about to burgle his house. I thought: vulgar car, vulgar man, but look what kind of house being vulgar can do for you. I would put him at 6ft2, so the above quoted height is accurate.

He doesn't ever really look as tall as 6ft 1.5 with any guests at all!!! Saw Tom Hardy's interview who was in trainers, only around 2-2.5 inches different between them - definitely not 4.5 inches!!!
I think there is no way he is 6ft 1.5 - maximum 6ft nowadays - he's getting older, bit of a slouch and he's insecure - ofcourse he would claim 6ft 1.5 - that was probably 15 years ago, in shoes with rounding up!!! Please change - otherwise everyone that's been on his show need to be pushed up and Hardy would be 5ft 11 and we know thats not the case!!!

Is the same height as Bradley Cooper on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' And he's listed at 6ft 0.5 inches on this site. Some people say Cooper is 6ft, and Jonathan Ross seems 6ft with other stars on his show. In regards to the comment below about Paddy McGuinness being 185cm. He doesn't look this next to Phillip Schofield, unless of course Phillip is taller than his listed height on this site.

I actually stood next to Johnathan Ross on a train around 20 years ago. I'm a shade under 5'10" and JR wasn't that much taller than me. An inch or two at best, I'd say.

He's shorter than Paddy McGuiness who is listed 185cm but looks 6ft2?

The logic everyone is using here is incredibly fallacious; it's the same logic that everyone applies when judging other celebrities' heights as well: "Well, see, Jay Z is 6'2'' and Jonathan Ross only looks a half inch shorter." But how do you know Jay Z is 6'2''? The response will be something like "Oh, because he stood next to David Duchnovy who is 6'0'' and Jay Z had two inches on him." And this process based on unproven assumptions goes on and on with each person's supposed height being based on the supposed height of someone else.

The only way to know how tall any of these people are is if Rob took a photo with them since we know exactly how tall Rob is. Or if they stood next to someone who took a photo with Rob.

Anyway, just from watching the show, I'd estimate Jonathan Ross' height at 5'11''. Everyone seems to be thinking he's taller than that, but 5'11'' actually isn't a stretch at all when you consider that the world is filled with people who claim two inches taller than they really are.

He is definetely 6ft max! Watch the show with David cameron, he is an inch shorter than 6ft 1 tall Prime Minister. If he is really 6ft 1.5in, he would claim 6ft 2 or even 6ft 3.
Tom said on 16/Sep/12
Not sure if anyone saw the Jonathan Ross show friday, but he looked the exact same height as 6'4 Liam Neeson, very odd.

6'0.5 sounds good.
johno said on 31/Aug/12
ps, he wasn't wearing any funny shoes, just normal sandels/casual flats so his height looked relatively lower ...
johno said on 31/Aug/12
Saw him on alan carr's summertime and he was only a few inches taller then the 5'9 alan carr. So i restate, about 6'0

He was slightly taller than Jenson Button on his show. Given he's also smaller than genuine 6ft 1 Tim Henman, I think 6ft 1.5 is too much for Ross. I think he's just over 6ft barefoot, 6ft 1.5 in shoes no doubt

i didn't think smith was taller than ross, jay z for sure was and brand without the footwear advantage probably wouldn't be taller either Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/12
I don't think he's any taller than 6ft1(185cm). Guys like Will Smith, Jay-Z, Russel Brand and Samuel L. Jackson edge him out with ease. He usually brings up the subject of height when he has a guest that is taller than him. He's obviously quite insecure...

But I don't see why he should be. At 6ft1 he's a decent height and would be easily over that mark in the morning. In shoes he'd be a good 6ft2.

David Cameron is 184cm. He was roughly the same as Barack Obama.
Maybe a tad shorter. Beckham is at least 5ft11 but not quite 6ft.
As for Ross. A typical 6ft1 guy that claims his morning height.
anon182UK said on 3/Aug/12
I just saw jonathan ross with david beckham on his chat show, looked a fair bit taller i would say around 2 inches. And recently i saw Beckham standing beside David Cameron and they looked the same height. so I think Ross is as listed, and Cameron and Beckham are both 5'11.5 - 6'0
ANDREA[ITA] said on 24/Jul/12
He always looks tall! 6'1.5 is a good guess!

He was the same height as 6'1/4" Denzel Washington on The Jonathan Ross Show this Saturday. One again, 6'1/2" is a very safe estimate for Ross. Sorry to keep 'banging on' about it but I'm just trying to put as much evidence forward as possible and we seem to use this man as a reference which isn't a good idea at the moment. By the way, I don't dislike Ross, I'm a big fan.

- Just saw the interview between tom hardy and jonathon ross. Hardy a cool, down to earth guy but seemed very anxious and seems to have some issues and the interview seemed very edgy anyhow, got a good look of the height difference between him and ross and i would say he was a max 2.5 inches shorter then ross.

Hardy 5'9 - 5'9.5
ross 6'0 ( seemed in all honesty around 5'11.5 max with hardy, do i dare say, even lower)
Godred said on 10/Feb/12
I don`t think he`s over 185.

Ross is the kind of person who, if he were 6'1 1/2", would claim a solid 6'2".
josie said on 6/Feb/12
am I missing something, Jon Ross towered over David Beckham, so if DB is really 5Ft 10/11 then JR must be over 6 ft?
Tommy said on 5/Feb/12
For those saying he gave away an inch to Jay-z: true, though look: Jay-z's in very chunky-looking trainers, whereas Ross is in dress shoes giving him only an inch or so, so Jay-z probably had him out on footwear by half an inch. Jay-Z has claimed 6'2 himself, and I wouldn't rule that out for him. Ross did look to have a solid inch and a half on 6-foot-described Phil Jupitus when they stood next to each other on Buzzcocks some years ago. I think John did peak at 6'1.5; he is possibly still that, perhaps having dropped some small fraction as he is in his 50s.
Chameleon said on 2/Feb/12
He stands straight with Cohen whose height we know is legit and looks noway near 187cm, same with Lineker and Paddy whose height we also know. I just cant see him at 6'1 let alone 187cm. Its just weird..
Chameleon said on 2/Feb/12
Rob how come he keeps looking different heights all the time, he looks shorter next to some people he shouldnt be, like Cohen and Lineker and more. and other times does look 185 range, never 187 though. Hes confusin?!
Editor Rob
maybe as he's now early 50's his posture at times can make him look barely 6ft 1.

Looks 6ft to me, Pady McGuiness was the same height as someone on take me out who said he was 6ft, plus the 6 footer was barefoot for one of the rounds and looked marginely shorter than Pady in shoes ( so both barefoot i would say would be the same height). And Pady looks the same height as Jonathan Ross on 'Friday night with Jonathan Ross' So i'd say 6ft possibly 6ft 0.5 for Jonathan.

Paddy edged ross in the interview two weeks back.

Chameleon I agree a 6'0" listing for Ross would be acceptable, although he did look 180 flat next to 175cm Lineker. But no way 187cm, Silent d you are one funny dude. Better chance he's 178 than 187.

6'0"/183cm at the absolute MAX for Ross. I'm still convinced 180 flat is closer to the truth.

178, 180 for ross??

Chameleon said on 1/Feb/12
Yeah, Rob, how do you explain the small gap between him and lineker? Ross at 187 is not possible as he also looked noway near that height with Cohen as proven by Vegas.
Editor Rob
I'm sure in some situations he can look 6ft range. It doesn't mean he was that height though.
