I am 5'1" but I rarely wear anything less than a 3 inch heels πŸ‘  πŸ‘  never worn trainers in my life xxx
The auditions were awful - I'm five foot nothing and Jon Pertwee is Six Foot something, so they looked at me and said I was far too small. I went away depressed. Then they rang up and said the job was mine, I couldn't believe it!

It's hard to believe her, when she said that she's never worn trainers in her life. Even the most unathletic and sedentary person in the world, has more than likely worn athletic sneakers at some point in their lives. Her statement could just be hyperbole though.

@ Rob - When did she claim to be 5’0” and have you got links so that I could see this claim please?

Hello Katy!

You've just come up as a random celeb so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Katykins a very Merry Christmas! XXπŸŽ„πŸŽ…β˜ƒοΈπŸ˜πŸ‘

@ Rob - I didn't even know Jon was 6ft2! Very often, shorter girls think tall guys are taller! I used to believe anything I was told, until I stuck a secret 6ft mark on my wall - and saw how many of my friends and acquaintances were, eh.....

Editor Rob
6ft 4 for Jon would have been pushing things!

β³πŸ”” Ooh! The hours of 2018 are rapidly running out, so it's just as well Katy popped up as a random Celeb, or she wouldn't have had any comments this year, and that would have been most unfortunate, wouldn't it?

Well, I saw her piccie with Rob and thought that, as with so many of the early Doctor Who assistants, she retains that girlish look to this day. She is also the sort of height I've found is commonplace for these girls, who so often played younger in the monster fest that I enjoyed so much, even as a pre-school nipper! πŸ‘§

From the picture, and bearing in mind her heels are around 3", I cannot give Katy more than 5ft1. 😁🍻

She has called herself both 5ft 1 and 5ft, though I think she was 5ft 1 and quite honest...but did call Pertwee 6ft 4 once.

When Katy was in Doctor Who, I was an avid fan! That was back in the days when I still found it frightening and it was the highlight of my whole week! Now it looks tame compared to the stuff kids watch today!
I certainly remember Jo Grant! To me, who was just a squirt those days, she looked like a 'big, grown-up woman'; now I am finding out that nearly all the famous Time Lord's girl helpers were petite, but there was the odd long-legged exception.
I'm delighted to give Katy her first comment - and a perfect 5ft1!
