Looks a strong 5'11 here, 180-181cms. Probably was 182-183cms 20 years ago in his prime.

6ft and change peak wouldnโ€™t come as a huge surprise with 6ft1 out of bed. Gave a tallish impression back in the day.

I wouldnโ€™t argue below 5ft11ยฝ as his current height. Heโ€™s never held great posture and may have some fractions hidden

โญ One thing I just observed while sitting in my porch watching my foxes have a good feast is that I noticed Big Face walk past one of our recycling bins, lift one of his hind legs - and spray! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

But I thought it was a rather amusing sight!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Feb/22
The other night, I was feeding my friendly neighbourhood fox, ๐ŸฆŠ Renard, some cat food - canard flavour....๐Ÿฆ†

....which was nice!

6ft and a quarter inch peak and 5ft11.75 tonight!

I'm trying my hardest not to laugh and failing badly!

I've just come across a comment I wrote which said, "It's all ol' ?ollocks" and that, after seeing The Fast Show, I did no such thing!

Nearby to my current positioning, there is a copy of the aforementioned show, which I am intending to watch if I can drag myself away from my David Cronenberg programme.

Should I do so, I'll fill in his heights. I don't really know what Mark looks like now, but as Freddie Mercury said, "I don't like Star Wars". Well against my better judgement, I haven't been an avid watcher of the Pottery films, though I know my intelligent boyfriend is. (I'd call it escapism!)

Well, Mark, it looks as though I have found out already.

I would say you're 6ft tall.

I'll let you know when I think otherwise
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Mar/21
Mark wasn't exactly dwarfed by Hugh Laurie in '101 Dalmations' the way the majority of Hugh's 'House' cast are.

I'd say a strong 6ft for Mark's peak and half-an-inch less for today's height.

5ft11 flat is too low even today.

There is an important element to mention from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 (2010).

At 57:27 in the movie, Harry Potter holds Arthur Weasley's personal details and 5ft 11 is Arthur Weasley's height. I don't know if 5ft 11 is Mark Williams actual height but he doesn't look taller than that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/19
Strong 6ft to weak 6ft is my guess
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Dec/19
I just received a text from a certain person and it read thus: 'Today I will be mainly dangling my knob in blancmange!'

I wonder where he got that from?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/19
Yup! Our Christmas tree is already up, as of yesterday, and already the naughty Manelia has had it over - twice in a very short time! ๐ŸŽ„

Livielia is still climbing it - and she's 11, but a little less clumsy!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 10/Nov/19
Whenever I see this picture, I think "No problemmo! 'The Fast Show' is only next door!"

Well maybe I'll be listening to 'Jessie's Diets' later on.....
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Sep/19
Well, Nik, it contains one his Fast Show catch phrases, "I'll get me coat!"

My favourite sketch containing this was when there were loads of people at a board meeting. Paul Whitehouse lets this great big fart go and all heads turn to an embarrassed Mark, who then comes out with that phrase. Then Paul whispers to the guy next to him, "It was me really!" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

@ Sandy Cowell - This is a wonderful poem! I know Mark would like it and the average guess stats too!

Autumn is officially here!


Darker nights and Autumn leaves
Nice hot drinks and Christmas trees
Hues of orange, red and brown
At Harvest no one wears a frown
Present-giving for one and all
And Celebheights with our own Rob Paul
That's why Autumn floats my boat
...and chilly eve'nings - I'll get me coat!

Yes, I start getting excited at this time of year! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Mark starred in '101 Dalmations' with Hugh Laurie. What an excellent opportunity to compare the two. They hang around together as well - as crooks! I just missed a showing on the E4 Channel yesterday and it's then that it occurred to me....

He's shoulder to shoulder with a dude who's 5'10.25" . Who on earth thinks he was ever over 6 foot tall?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Mar/19
"Today I will be mostly licking worms!"

He will also mostly be 5ft11.75 and in 'The Last Fast Show Ever' he could pass for 6ft.25.
burnitdownhomies said on 26/Feb/19
Looks 6'2 here.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Sep/18
It's all ole "*OLLOCKS!

Screw this episode if 'Heartbeat', I'm gonna watch 'The Fast Show'!

I'll be back on Mark's height!

Looks max 181cm

Again, another spot on listing. Fast Show era, towered over Whitehouse, Higson, Thomson etc... A tall chap, Like Simon Day. 6ft peak, mid 90s, is perfect.

Out of interest, is this listing what you feel he looks like in this picture?

I ask because I (182.5 cm) roughly look like this with someone in the 174/175 cm range. This give a 181 cm listing from me (barely any difference to the 181.6 cm listing). Just trying to see if I'm gauging height differentials more accurately now.
Editor Rob
Well it's not far off it, somewhere in 5ft 11 and change range. I think if measured he might get 11.5 range.
Pierre said on 14/Jul/18
I see him around a strong 5"11' next to 5"8.25' Rob.I think he has an advantage on Rob in this picture because his head looks upward more than Rob's head.Nice picture
Visitor said on 13/Jul/18
"Not standing well"??? Is that a joke, you could go through half this site and not find a pic with such good posture.

That's what a big 180 cm guy looks like. Big as in surprisingly wide shoulders as well. Suits you, sir.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jul/18
Not standing well here so maybe could still stretch up close to 6ft
Editor Rob
Actually he's standing quite well, I was surprised as he can look 5ft 10-11 at times in person.
MAD SAM said on 10/Jul/18
Peak would had been 183.5 cm or 6โ€™0.25โ€, right now heโ€™s 182 cm or 5โ€™11.75โ€

I think he did clear 6ft at his peak

Looks about 6' ish
Seems to be morphing into Jonathan King in this photo

And another thing, Visitor, about Simon Day: he used to do a pretty good DJ slot on Greater London Radio, playing all the sort of hard rock that I like to listen to!
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jul/18
@ Visitor - Simon Day's peak height is written up on the internet as 6ft2. He is a bit younger than the others, but not enough to NOT be suffering from height loss too!
Nik said on 7/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell - ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง!
Visitor said on 5/Jul/18
This I consider a good listing. Although I would actually list him at 5'11" or 5'11.25" (just over 180 cm), because his head is angled up higher. Despite that, the picture is brilliant in showing how people who appear tall are not automatically over 6 foot nor do they need to be. If someone else is shorter, you will appear taller, that's all there is to it. It's relative. There are many, many similar examples, listed as or thought to be "6 foot" but in reality anything from 5'10" to actually being just barely 6 foot flat.

It's been a while since I properly watched the Fast Show, but really the only image that stuck height-wise was that Whitehouse was "short" (shorter than the other guys). Someone below mentioned Simon Day as having been 6'3"... is he? I don't recall him being half a HEAD taller than Williams for example...

@ Sandy Cowell - That is a very nice thing for you to say, thanks! I can say the same about you too!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jul/18
@ Angel - Thanks for that! The very fact that you took the trouble to write in and say something nice like that says the same thing about you!

Oh yes, the ever friendly and helpful Nik is also a nice person!
Nik said on 2/Jul/18
@ Tim Sarkar - I do think that 5'11.25" is possible, but no less!
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/18
@ Nik - If you haven't seen any of the brilliant 'Fast Show' episodes, try and hunt around in charity shops, or even on the internet. You won't regret it; they're hilarious! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
Jordan87 said on 2/Jul/18
He may just about hit 5'11 currently. Maybe 1/2" Taller in his prime, he is about 60.

I think 5'11.5 is more this fella's peak height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/18
Rob, maybe a strong 6ft peak?
Editor Rob
It's arguable in the late 80's early 90's.
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/18
@ josh b - I bet it is! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
josh b said on 1/Jul/18
@ Sandy
Thanks, my collection is slowly growing now, it's great fun meeting folks at conventions :)
Tim Sarkar said on 30/Jun/18
5'11.25 is a better shout for him
Editor Rob
He can look 5ft 11 at times in person, but standing tall I think is still comfortably over 5ft 11.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/18
@ josh b - That's a very nice picture; if I were you, I too would be more than a little proud of it! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
Nik said on 30/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I haven't had any for years, but I do remember one thing, they went quick! That was no good if you went to the tin wanting a few with your tea or coffee! Ha ha!

It seems like Mark Williams is a funny chap, I don't remember "Jessie's Diets" from the Fast Show, mores the pity!

I like you and your Dad's sense of humour!

Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/18
๐Ÿ–• Correction Time! ๐Ÿ–•

That should have been 'Great to see you back Gladstone' and NOT 'next back'. It was, of course, my autocorrect slipping that in!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/18
He looks 5ft11 w/h Rob

๐Ÿ™ƒ. Error Report. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I meant Bourbon biscuits!
Nik said on 29/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I fully agree with your nowadays estimation of Mark's height, Rob has it spots! Not for the first time!

@ Gladstone Screwer - Good to see you back!
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/18
Bourbon Biscuits:

If Jessie really did only eat Bourbon biscuits for a whole week, I can't see him doing himself much good at all AND he would most probably lose weight!

At 65 calories a pop, and with the average man needing around 2,600 calories a day, can you imagine munching your way through 40 of the brown, crunchy sandwiches in one day? Ugh! I think I'd have quite enough after about four, so Jessie's (thoroughly unsound) reducing diet JUST MIGHT WORK!
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/18
@ Rob - I think I might have submitted Gladstone's reply twice! If so, could you please ignore one of them? Thanks!
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/18
@ Nik - So do I! And I remember them from the other day as my brother brings them into the house regularly!

Do you remember "Jessie's Diets" from the Fast Show? They consisted of one food and Mark Williams would come on and proudly announce, "This week I will mostly be eating Bourbon biscuits!" or something similarly daft.

It would, of course, vary from week to week. That show was the highlight of my week and that of many others; my Dad loved it too!
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/18
@ Gladstone Screwer - "Doesn't the lady WANT IT, Sir?"

Yes, I remember them well! Remember when they brought Johnny Depp into the Gentleman's Outfitters in The Last Fast Show Ever?

"Are you, per chance, an American?"

They all ended up doing the chorus 'ooh, suits you sir!'* together!

* Strictly speaking, it was 'Suit you, Sir!' That is probably because it took place in a Gentleman's Outfitters!

Great to see you next back Gladstone! I hope you are well! ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŒฝ
Nik said on 28/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I remember those Bournon biscuits well from my childhood!

I think that Mark Williams may be 5'11.5", but no more these days!
Andrea said on 28/Jun/18
He does look a strong 5'11.
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jun/18
That was rotten of me!

I don't think Mark is overweight at all.
Sorry about that Mark, you're fine just the way you are - and very funny! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jun/18
I've never seen this picture before, Rob! Is it new?

6ft peak, 5ft11.5 now.

I wonder, are Jessie's Diets are still working for him? He's probably on the Bourbon biscuit one from the look of this picture!

I remember in one Harry Potter film he looked 3 inches shorter than David Thewlis so about 6 feet.

Rob, if you put this guys pic up i'll do the same :P

I'll do that today then!

Looked a smidgeon shorter than John Goodman, who in turn looked a smidgeon shorter than Hugh Laurie, in the Borrowers.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/17
Rob, have you met this guy?
Editor Rob
yes I seen him up close. He looks a guy who has probably lost a bit of height from the early 90's, although he's not exactly that old...
Jamie said on 3/Sep/17
Really this low Rob? I thought at least 184 cm peak.
Editor Rob
he's shrunk...shorter than 6ft men in person...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/17
That's a shocker! I thought close to 6ft1
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Nov/16
It is good to see this funny fellow featuring on this website! I didn't know he was a 6 footer! Now Rob, please can we have Paul Whitehouse?
Anon said on 10/Feb/15
He edges out Hugo Speer in Father Brown, six foot.
thorterr said on 10/Sep/12
looked the same height as 5ft 11 arthur darvil in dr who
Hugh said on 29/Feb/08
I've seen him. I was over visiting a couple of friends in Surrey, England. I'm Irish by the way. He lives down the road from my friend. Anyway i'm drifting off the subject. He looked 6ft2ish (187-188cm). He's quite lanky and he does slouch a bit. So I'd give this guy 6ft1.75.
Ade said on 29/Nov/06
Wow, he's taller than I thought. Guess that makes Simon Day 6'3"ish then?
