He seemed really small on the X Factor back in 2007 I would say he is a classic 5"6 guy the typical Littlun. His 5"8 claim is an absolute joke!

Depending on his hairstyle, shoes and if he is wearing a hat😄

Dermot O'Leary absolutely isn't 5'8. Look at this. I think he's around 5'7.

I've read two interview with him recently where he stated he was 5ft 8in, and would like to be a little taller. He's nowhere near that height. On X Factor the other day, Dermot (who says himself he is 5'8") was clearly about two inches taller. 5ft 6.5in sounds about right.

Katy, he said his height was 5'8. ^ I think his height might be a touchy subject for him, hence the short (no pun intended) reply.

I'd say he's about 5'6 at the most.

Yeah, I think Leon will be about 5.5/5.6. That would be great, as I'm 5.2!!
If anyone ever meets him....PLEEEEASE ask, what is his height!!!

saw him the other day on the train..I'm 5ft 3 he was MAX an inch taller than me. But he's talented so who cares - if anything, the fact that he's toiny makes him even more amazing :)

dermot o'leary is 5' 9" and in the video announcing the winner it is clear that Dermot is not much taller then Leon. Here is the link:

Hope this clears up this question.

After seeing this guy I think he's 5ft 5in barefoot,
Anybody can claim to be taller but I think that's his true one.
Never understood why some people can be so hung up about their height.

Even so, I think he's adorable and that there should be a picture of him(/his height, obviously!) :P

no way is this guy 5 ft 8... I would say 5 ft 6.5 MAX
Evanna said on 1/Jan/08
Yeah, this listing now makes more sense, it's so obvious that he's 5'8" only in his dreamland. Actually he could well be only 5'6" flat, but maybe he's not done growing yet.

there's barely any difference between them

granted, kylie has big heels on but you gotta remember that she is only 5ft herself, plus leon has shoes on (not a big amount, but an inch or so does make the difference, and takes ~1 inch off kylie's heels)

This is his and Kylie's performance.
Hope this helps!

No way can he get away with a 5ft 8 claim! When did he say that anyway? Definately 5-5 or 5-6, but even that's pushing it a little I think!

someone got link to x factor results clip with danni minogue or kylie?
RussellBrandRocks said on 30/Dec/07
No way he's that tall! He's definetly under 5.6!
TheMan said on 29/Dec/07
Have to say for this guy no more than 5,6 even dermit oleary i think youll find isnt even 5,8 he's like 5,7 himself maybe even less. Id say 5,6.
poster said on 29/Dec/07
not a chance in hell, I thought like 5'5, possibly 5'6 MAX but christ... 5#8... even dermot o'leary towered him from what I remember

Editor Rob
so he really can't get away with this 5ft 8 claim...

5'5" max barefoot.
Sophia said on 28/Dec/07
Plus Dermot O'Leary's 5'8" and I just watched the performance again and he's definately nearer Kylie's height (with heels) than Dermot's.
So say Kylie's heels are 4"...That would make her 5'4". Therefore, Leon's between 5'4" and 5'8", but probably nearer to 5'4". I reckon he's actually 5'5".
Ha, check out the detectivity!

thers no way he is 5'8 as you say when he was performing with Kylie he was only just taller and she is about 5 foot ( although she would have had heels on) giving her a few inches so I reckon 5'6 aswell!x

No more than 5-6
Sophia said on 28/Dec/07
I swear he looked kinda short next to Dermot O'Leary and Rhydian, and especially when he was performing with Kylie, so I thought he was more 5'5/6"
Anyone else agree?
