Father's a small-framed man, used to be a bit of a boxer...He'd be 5ft 11in at his tallest, about 5ft 9in now at 60. Mother's the same age and height but big and cuddly.
Me? I'm 6ft 2in and 11½ stone.
-- Evening Standard, 23rd Nov, 1993

Most likely a strong 6’2” at peak, I’d go with 6’2.25”, Morrissey is basically the same height at Martin Clunes. I cannot decide who was taller in Men Behaving Badly, maybe Clunes had the slightest edge on Morrissey, both men cleared 6’2” with ease in that show. 6’2.5” is the absolute most I could accept for either of them though. It’s funny how Morrissey claims 6’2” and Clunes 6’3”, there was not a full inch between them.

Neil has a surprising amount of knowledge tucked away in that head of his - most impressive! (I'm watching him with Arabella Weir in a Christmas edition of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?) He looks pretty much on par with Chris Tarrant.

Rob, what would you give Neil’s Line of Duty castmate Craig Parkinson? Looks very tall, claims 6’4.5” regularly, and I’d say looks precisely that.
Editor Rob
he can look in 6ft 4 range comfortably on that show, worth an entry on the site.

I think Martin is a fraction over 6ft2 then
Editor Rob
there is a chance of Clunes still having been a bit over 6ft 2, he always claimed 6ft 3 from age 21 basically.

He looked a couple of inches shorter than 6'3.5 Silas Carson in Waterloo road, do you think Carson downgrades his height as to me he always looks 6'4-6'5 range. He also looks within an inch of Danny Dyer. I think just under 6'2 is possible for him, as short as 6'1 is highly unlikely though

Saw the Bounty recently and Morrissey was an inch or so shorter than Liam Neeson, there were a lot of scenes of them together and both were barefoot, I think Neil really was up towards 6'3 back in the early to mid 80s
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/17
Might be closer to 6ft2 flat today. Looked near 6ft3 in the 90's though
Chris said on 5/Feb/17
More 6"2 flat is what he looked in stuff I've seen of him from the 2000s such as ski sand Waterloo road. wasn't very towering next Russell Howard either

Yh I think 6'1 is close for Hugh Dennis, at best 6'1.5,certainly not near 6'3.
Rory said on 12/Oct/16
Stood next to paddy mcguiness in stars in their cars he only looked 1.5 inches taller, both with similar footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/15
Rob, could you add Hugh Dennis?

I think 6ft1 is a good shout. He looks surprisingly tall.
Rhonda said on 18/Oct/14
Definitely not this tall. Martin Clunes is 6ft2 and Neil is smaller.I am watching old Men behaving badly on GOLD and Neil looks to be 6ft tall next to visual clues like doors frames etc. 6ft2+shoes is going to be mighty close to top of door frame ehich clearly he isn't. 6ft-6ft1 max

Editor Rob, how tall do you think Hugh Dennis is if Neil is 6ft 2.5in?
Editor Rob
hugh can look from 6ft up to 6ft 1 at times

We was on Piers Morgan Life Stories the other day and had at least 2in on Piers.

Haven't watched Men Behaving Badly for at least 10 years but I do remember that Clunes and Morrissey were both quite tall guys. I'd have guessed 6 ft 2 for both, although Rampage might be right that Clunes edges him out. 188cm as listed I'd say?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/12
A bit shorter than Martin Clunes. I think 188cm could be spot on. Either that or Clunes is really 6ft3
Editor Rob
they are quite close, although it's been so long since I watched one of those episodes
James said on 29/Jan/11
I think 6'2 (188cm) today. Maybe 6'2.5 (189cm) in his 20's? Tall guy.
James said on 8/Jun/07
Yeah he probably is 6ft2
tubbs said on 14/Jan/07
Stated he was 6'2" on tv last night, time for a downgrade maybe Rob?

Editor Rob
possibly...a little anyway
Kirkpatrick said on 16/Sep/06
Hmmm stood next to 5'11" Charles Dale I begin to wonder if he is more like 6'2" : Click Here

[Editor Rob: an angle like that will make the person further back look taller than they really are]
Mikex said on 22/Apr/06
To my eyes he always looked slightly shorter than 6'3'' Martin Clunes on Men Behaving Badly. I don't know why anonymous thinks Morrisey is the taller of the pair. 6'2'' is my guess.

Editor Rob
sometimes he could look taller (neil), other times not...certainly both guys close in height

Saw him hosting some kind of celebrity game show last week. He stood on a completely flat studio floor with Red Dwarf's Chris Barrie (5'11) and only looked about 2" taller than him. Completely ruled out 6'3" in my eyes for him. I'd guess around 6'1 1/2"

I'd advise reviewing this guy's height.

Editor Rob
as I say, 'officially' he is 6ft 2...and clunes officially 6ft 3...but I don't think both quite add up from badly days...
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/06
He looked around 6'3/4 in his Men Behaving Badly days... In most shots he was a good few cms taller than 6'2.5 Martin Clunes

Editor Rob
I hadn't really checked this guy...its been so long since I've seen mbehaving badly I can't remember the exact difference...

anyway, both actors are with the same agency and just checking, they also listed clunes 6ft 3, but Morrisey as 6ft 2...

Morrissey and Steven Tompkinson who gets listed 6ft 2 aswell...looking at more pics I agree this guy is taller and the agency listing is too low.

time to upgrade this guy.
