Ha ha! There was a funny height scene in 'A Touch of Frost' this morning....

David Jason was standing with Larry Lamb and they were having a conversation. David was only a tiny bit shorter than Larry and I thought, "That can't be right - surely?"

Then the annoying press pest Sandy Longford came along and climbed up a stair, gaining many inches in the process!

Larry Lamb gets 6ft2.5 for his peak and an inch less today. πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘

The new Peter Beale is definitely taller than Larry Lamb. Now played by Dayle Hudson, the new version and sadly, the only surviving twin, has to be six foot three, ergo edging out Larry at his peak height. πŸ‘πŸ“

Larry gets 6ft2.5 for his optimum and 6ft1.5 for today's height, which is excellent going for a man of 72 years of age.

⭐ Interestingly, I just found 193cm 🀭 for the actor when I fished around for his age! 🐟🐠🐑

I just turned over to 'Film Four' to discover Larry Lamb stand in front of Clive Russell, and being towered over by him. The film is 'The Hatton Garden Job' and has a very interesting cast. From what I have seen in a fleeting few minutes, it stars Joely Richardson and Phil Daniels, 5ft7.5. Let me tell you, the language is hilarious, as you'd expect to find amongst a bunch of conniving thieves, but Joely is an exception!

I am giving Larry 6ft1.25 for today's height and 6ft2.5 for his original one.

I've seen him up close recently and I think 6ft1.5 is a stretch today, to me up close he looked 6ft-6ft0.5 with his loose standing posture. I saw him stood tall and I think 6ft1 flat is quite possible but it's clear at 71/72 he's lost height you can see it in his stooped upper back. I think 6ft1 today and 6ft2.25 or 6ft2.5 peak.

Could look near 6ft3 in the early EE years. The 6ft4 a shoe claim maybe

Rob, maybe 190cm peak?

Today looks somewhere in the 6ft1-2 zone
Editor Rob
He's got 6ft 2 and 3 claims, I think somewhere between the 2 is more arguable than a full 6ft 3, from what I've seen now.

Rob was he 6ft2 9 years ago?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure...he's given 6ft 2 and 3, but certainly in last few years he has looked under 6ft 2.

At this moment in time, I am watching an episode of 'A Touch of Frost' and Larry Lamb is in it. Unfortunately for him, he must be standing next to a fairly tall policewoman because there is no way he looks like a man of 6ft2 or 6ft3! He looks 6ft1, and this show is dating back to the 90's.
However, having seen him recently in 'I'm a Celebrity...', I know that he really is impressively tall, so my estimate will be 6ft2. I have also taken into account some of the comments I've just read.

ive just seen him on tv shaking hands with Jordan banjo brother of Ashley banjo of diversity. Jordan is 6ft 5 that would make Jordan 6ft3.25 it honestly looked like he had a easy 2 inches on larry lamb....ill have to say at best larry would be 187cm

Looks 6ft2 today
Rory said on 31/Aug/16
I've seen George Lamb up close and he's a very tall guy, at the absolute minimum hes 6'4.. But I think 6'5 is perfectly plausible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
6ft2 today is likely. His son looks 6ft4-5
Rory said on 18/Aug/15
Aged 68 he still has half an inch on Nicholas lyndhurst, 6'3 peak is likely.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
No way under 6ft2.
James B said on 15/Mar/14
Could look anywhere from 6'1 to 6'2 on eastenders
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/13
A fraction over 6ft3 peak, Rob?

Definitely looks nearer 6ft2 now though

rob how tall do you think his son george lamb is???
Editor Rob
I think we talked about him before and I wasn't sure about adding giving him a page, I know he claims to be 6ft 5...
Cameron murray said on 27/Jul/13
He says 6ft 4 1.93m but I think that was his height,by now since he is 65 he is 6ft 3 as he looks 2inchs shorter than his son George lamb who is 1.96m 6ft 5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/13
6ft3 peak, 6ft2 now
deano said on 15/Nov/11
I dont know how this guys 6 ft 2 because he was like 1 - 1.5 inches smaller than jonathon ross on an award show, wonder if the hunching had anything to do with it.
Shaun said on 30/Oct/11
Actually in Gavin and Stacy I could see 190cm for Larry.
James said on 14/Aug/11
larry looks 6'1-6'1.5 range a lot in photos with his 6'4.5-6'5 son.
James said on 27/Jun/11
seeing someone who is 6'5 is rare in the town where i live in England.
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
If you consider though that there are probably about 20 million adult British men in the UK that means there are like 83,000 odd 6'5" British men based on the 1 in 240 thing, which does seem a little unbelievable? Its hard to picture 83,000 British men measuring 6'5" I think anyway.

juststic says on 2/Jun/11
his son George lamb is a very tall man indeed, statistically 6'5 is 1 in every 240 guys,

You sure about that? Seems, mm I dunno a little high. For instance I read than only 1 in 1000 in Holland is above 6'6"., and Holland has the highest percentage of 6'6'" + guys in the world it seems. I remember my doctor measured me at 187 late afternoon and said I'm in the 95th percentile or whatever it is. Meaning that only 5 in 100 men are taller than I am I think which would seem about right. So maybe 1 in 240 guys are 6'5".

He's listed as 6ft4(193cm) in most places

Obviously not next to his son.

He's defenintly an over 6ft tall man. On Eastenders looked 6'2 i thought if he stood well. Probably looked 6'1 on the programme becuase he kinda hunched and did not stand well a lot of the time.
James said on 21/Mar/11
I agree he looks 6'2 max next to his son but is George 6'4.5 or the full 6'5? I think if George is 6'5 then Larry does look just about 6'2 in comparison.

6'1.5 today and 6'2 or 6'2.5 peak?
Gus said on 1/Mar/11
Larry Lamb at 63 looks 3 inches shorter than his 6'4.5 son...187cm today at 63...190cm at peak.
Gus said on 1/Mar/11
His son George Lamb is 6'4.5,Larry looks 6'2 next to him at 62/63 years old...I think definately 190cm at peak.
Gus said on 1/Mar/11
For me he looked 6'2 in Eastenders,baring in mind he was in his early 60s,I think peak height 190cm,nowadays 187cm
anonymous said on 8/Feb/11
