Losing posture, and still looks a solid 2 inches on Rob. stretched up I can see possibly nearing a weak 5'11?

As Rob stated that's really good for his age in the pic.

Wow, that's a 86 y/o in this picture. He resisted time very well and didn't lose a lot of height
Editor Rob
If you reach that age and lose less than 2 inches you've done well.

Who's the oldest celeb listed on here? (currently alive or desceased)
Editor Rob
Age isn't something I keep track of so I'm not sure about that.

QM6'1QM - It doesn't take the sadness away though. He's someone's Dad; he has a daughter called Suzy. 😿

RIP Nicholas XXX 🕯️

I have just found out via one of Stephen Fry's tweets that Nicholas Parsons has recently passed on. How sad.

RIP Nicholas XX

There is a pic of Nicholas taken just 4 or 5 years ago next to Chris Evans and he looked about an inch shorter (which is odd - I thought Evans was 6'1" or something). He's in great shape for his age and always prided himself on keeping as fit as possible - looks like it paid off. Agree about peak height - likely around 6'

Looks no more than 177

99% of old people I see in my town are 5'8 and often even shorter than that. Very rarely do I see an 80-year old who's taller than me.

Rob, why does he look no taller than 176 cm?
Editor Rob
I think he was about 5ft 10 that day.
Rory said on 23/Oct/16
Looks 5'10 in the picture and in good shape for his age, probably 182-3 peak.
Judd said on 30/Apr/15
I agree about the fact that 1,5" is reasonable by 80...the problem is that he doesn't show to be 5'10.5" in the top picture...he does look no more than 4 cms taller than you, actually...
Editor Rob
there was a con friend beside me in the queue and with that guy I thought Nicholas had looked over 5ft 10 flat, I don't know, today he may well be barely even 5ft 10.
Judd said on 28/Apr/15
he seems more 5'9.5-9.75" with you rob...any chance he's 177 cms today and 180-182 cms at peak instead 183 cms?
Editor Rob
he was over 80 in that photo so I think it's reasonable to have lost a couple of inches by then. You do very well to only lose 1 inch by 80, badly if you lost say 3.5.

Looks 174-175cm

Looks younger than Sir Cliff.
lelman said on 1/Jun/13
Looks 5'9.5" now, but back in the day could be 6' or high 5'10-11
LG69 said on 30/May/13
Wow, he looks 10 years younger. If the shoes are equal then I'd say he is 5'10-5'10.25"
Trent said on 29/Dec/12
He looks 5'10 - 5'10.25 considering the lean. Very youthful-looking for his age.
maio said on 21/Dec/11
5 ft 9.75 in/177 cm in the pic. 5 ft 11.25 in/181 cm when he was 20's.
Godred said on 14/Nov/11
5`11 peak,5`10 now.
Mathew said on 13/Nov/11
He looks 10 years younger than his age easy. I can't say I could guess what his peak height was though.
Shaun said on 12/Oct/11
I'd have guessed 5'11".
avi said on 2/Oct/11
Rob, are you saying when he was younger his eyebrow would have reached the top of your head? i doubt that. 5'11 never more than than that.
Editor Rob
it's quite probable he lost 4cm in height at 80
dmeyer said on 21/Sep/11
rob can someone drop just 1.5 in at 85 he did well right ??? he does look a 179er
Editor Rob
it's good for that age.
anon said on 6/Aug/11
He looks good for his age, I remember him on one of those "worst driver" programs, he was hilarious.
