He might have shrunk a little at 74 now.
Paul Atherton said on 1/Jun/18
Was taller than ted danson whose 6.2 in Loch Ness a big guy say the least
Gladstone Screwer said on 23/May/18
Big guy. He as in Emmerdale as Alan Turner's son, as I recall. He was also in several Sweeney episodes as one of the squad. 6'4" good with me.
Terry said on 8/Apr/18
He looked huge in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Towered over Kevin Costner who is about 6'1. I estimate about 6'4-6'5 for Brimble.
Cranky said on 11/Feb/18
Probably about right. I used to see him regularly when I delivered the milk supplies to the Cafe Nero in the Elys department store, Wimbledon. Very tall and softly spoken. Somewhat taller than a friend of mine who's 6'2".

He looks 6'3.5" at most.
Jim Hopper said on 7/Nov/17
100% 6-4" peak. Now just around 6-3"

"In fact he gave a taller impression than Steven Seagal did in that movie (they didn't share any scenes in the movie though)"



Seagal's ego probably didn't allow it. He wouldn't have been the tallest of the two if that'd happened.

Im pretty sure hd cropped up in Emmerdale as Steph stokez brother in 2006..
Josh Jeffords said on 25/Nov/16
Back in the 90s he looked huge easy 6 4 much bigger than Costner.
Not a terrible actor but usually played a villain or lug.
He was bigger than Danny glover but only a bit.
My guess is prime he's shrunk maybe a couple.

Rob, by looking at the photo and the height scale, he's clearly not 6ft4. He has lost some height, so please add him a peak and a current one.
Editor Rob: a bit under it today is very likely.
Aza said on 7/Oct/16
I think he is 6'3.25 evening height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/16
Rob, could he be heading to 6ft3 now?
Editor Rob: today he could be 6ft 3 range and lost a bit.
Peter 179cm said on 11/Jul/16
Not over 190-191cm,imo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
No, freakishly tall starts at 6ft8. The only time I've experienced that is when last Halloween I dressed up as Dame Edna and borrowed a pair of 7¾in heels. Before heading out, I stepped under the stadiometer and got measured 6ft11⅝. It was surreal.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/15
6ft4 is not freakishly tall...in fact I take that personally.

6'4 is in the very tall range. Would you say 'very tall' is synonymous with freakish tall?

Jakertini said on 4/Nov/15
6'4" on the dot
James B said on 10/Aug/15
Looked quite freakish tall in Submerged

In fact he gave a taller impression than Steven Seagal did in that movie (they didn't share any scenes in the movie though)

That was 10 years ago so back then was probably a solid 6'3.5.
Jim Hopper said on 5/Jul/15
Defo a tall actor,not some arnie wanna be tall guy. 6-4" easy prime height,next to Lewis Collins in the professionals looked 6" min taller.
Aza said on 23/Jun/15
Live in Wimbledon and have seen him a few times. Didn't look more than a couple of inches taller than me and I am 182.5 cm lowest height.
Katatonia said on 30/Nov/14
Definitely not a full 6ft4. Could measure 6'3.5 if he stood tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/14
Looks a bit under this today.
Jacko said on 12/Oct/14
I've met Nick many times,I'm 6"2 maybe more and he is well above me
James B said on 27/Jul/14
Yeah looked a strong 6'4 peak
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 20/Jun/14
Easy 6'4", maybe 6'5" prime. I remember he played a minor role as a 15 foot tall Giant in the BBC Chronicles of Narnia 1990 series, and also Little John in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. Broad features, great actor.
the shredder said on 5/May/14
Rob , look with Danny Glover. Wow I think 6'2.5 or 6'2 is for Glover at peak.

Random said on 24/Apr/14
Easily a 192cm guy. Possibly a 193-194 during his prime.
Sam said on 17/Apr/14
Frankenstein Unbound was a pretty wonky and not-too-hot little movie but Brimble's was the most imposing Frankenstein's monster I think I've ever seen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
Rob, there aren't many 6ft3.75 guys on here.

Maybe that could fit this guy?
PepsiCola said on 26/Jul/13
Yes hes a tall guy, strong 6ft3 or full 6ft4 is oke, and hes not standing streight
Cameron murray said on 25/Jul/13
His hair makes him look taller than he is I would say 6ft 1.5 - 6ft 2 1/2 range I'm guessing
Kyuss said on 14/Apr/13
Yes not alot of loss here,hes leaning downwards and still towers rob. Could he still be a 6-4"ish guy rob? Looks pretty darn close imo. I'll say 6-3.5".
[Editor Rob: probably a little under it]
johno said on 8/Mar/13
About 6'3.75
Mathew said on 4/Jan/13
6'4" peak, 6'3" - 6'3.5" today could be right.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 31/Dec/12
6'3.5. 192 cm.
Ice said on 2/Dec/12
Does look like 6'4 in this pic . Completely towers over Rob , even though hes leaning down .
Shaun said on 16/Sep/12
He doesn't quite look 6'4" here. more 6'3" but if you saw that Bill clip this guy was an easy 6 ft 4 in his prime.
greg said on 30/Aug/12
There are pictures of this guy all over the web, mostly at British entertainment promos/events, and he *towers* over everyone he's photographed with. Easy 6'4" when younger and seems to have kept most of his height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/12
More in the 6ft3-3.5 zone today than 6ft4 IMO.
Hob said on 28/Jul/12
if he had shoe advantage on rob it will be how a solid 6'2 range guy apear next to 5'8 person.
Anonymous1 said on 16/Jun/12
Looks 6'3.5 here, I can buy 6'4 peak easily.
Captain Spaulding said on 11/Feb/12
yea he was def 6'4" at his peak. maybe still is now, considering that he dwarfs rob even though hes leaning down
Tom101 said on 23/Dec/11
he is,i've met him,hes defo 6.4ish still.
James said on 19/Dec/11
here's the clip again. he looks massive and in submerged looked huge as well and gave a taller impression than steven seagal in that movie.

Click Here
in midsummer murders recently he still looked like a really tall guy and has not lost a great deal from his peak.
Shaun said on 18/Dec/11
James provided a clip of him on The Bill in 1988 and he looked 100% every bit of a legit 6'4".
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Rob, why does he look 6'2.5 in this pic? Is he standing straight or not?
[Editor Rob: I think dropping an inch from measured height, but then I am dropping a bit aswell.
]
ChiasmataX said on 12/Dec/11
Nvm, after a good look he can be 192-193cm no problem if he stand straight up.
ChiasmataX said on 21/Nov/11
[Editor Rob: could be an inch difference yes]
No Rob just compare this guy to the 186.8cm guy from height challenge # 8. You and the other guys are way off on this one. He's probably a solid 6 feet 2.5 guy at most (188-189cm range guy).
Greenbolt said on 14/Nov/11
I see a lot more than a 0.5'' inch difference between this guy and McPartlin. Even taking account Brimble's posture, this guy looks like he needs a downgrade to 6'3.75'', wouldn't you say, Rob?
[Editor Rob: could be an inch difference yes]
george555 said on 18/Oct/11
he could be 6'3, i would say 6'2.75.
LAN Jiao said on 12/Oct/11
Did't look near 6'4.5 ryan mcpartlin. 6'4 not a chance. 190-191cm straight up.
Shaun said on 10/Oct/11
Well he doesn't look as tall as George Romero Andreaita. Looks 6'3"here but his posture is poor.
James said on 3/Oct/11
he could still be 6'3 1/2. he didn't look less than 6'3-6'4 in Midsummer Murders for sure.
george555 said on 29/Sep/11
he looks more like 6'2.75-6'3.25, 6'4 is a little too much.
Tom101 said on 24/Sep/11
im 6'2.5" and he is defo taller,saw him in london at a cafe,stood 3 feet away and is around the 6'4 mark upwards with his shoes on.
the shredder said on 20/Sep/11
Rob , what would you guess his weight ?
[Editor Rob: today maybe 200-205]
Moke said on 16/Sep/11
I noticed a lot of tall older (60+) guys when I was in the States (AZ, CA) back in 2008. That was kind of weird cause compared to Switzerland and Germany where I live, old men tend to be significantly shorter then young adults as a result of worse life situations back in their youth.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Sep/11
He looks a legit 190 man!
Hullywood said on 9/Jul/11
Surely over 1.90m.
James said on 10/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Jun/11
Well James he quite lanky so maybe he could look taller than someone like Seagal whose heavier built

Submerged came out in 2005 so nick was probably 6'3.5 (192cm) on the nose back then.

So in Submerged
Steven Seagal 6'3 (191cm)
Nick Brimble 6'3.5 (192cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/11
6ft4 peak
6ft3.25 today

WOW he looks tall here back on the bill in 1988

go to 7:58 on the video

Was probably a very solid 6'4 when younger
James said on 20/May/11
Nick looked gigantic in submerged and gave of a taller impression than steven seagal.

Anyone seen him in the film?
Chameleon said on 18/May/11
He lost a full inch? Im not convinced.

Agreed, James.
James said on 16/May/11
6'3 today
6'4 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/11
Probably around 6"3 today
Physics Enemy said on 9/May/11
Again, he's leaning and the manlets start taking advantage. He's 6' 4", get over it everybody. That's one thing I like about Rob; he's a realist. He acknowledges his own height and acknowledges the height of others. No fudging or napoleon complex like the regular posters.
James said on 29/Apr/11
Nah bending down looks no higher than 187-188cm,
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
Bending he looks a strong 6"2, 188-189cm
James said on 24/Apr/11
near 6'3 illusion in the pic with his hairstyle.
Chameleon said on 15/Apr/11
I agree.
James said on 13/Apr/11
he really does not look over 6'2 in the photo
Agnes said on 3/Apr/11
Hes got big feet, how big are they?
James said on 29/Mar/11
rob do you think at his age its not unusual for a guy his size to lose 1 inch. very tall people do shrink more don't they?

[Editor Rob: proportionally yes, a 6ft 4 man would lose more than a 5ft 8 man]
Chameleon said on 27/Mar/11
Rob did this guy actully looked 6ft4 to u?

[Editor Rob: he looked no less than 6ft 3]
anon said on 20/Mar/11
He definitely does not look 190cm. Easily 6'4''.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/11
Looks 190cm in the pic
James said on 17/Mar/11
He probably looks bigger than he is becuase of he has very distinctive and broad features such as wide shoulders, big head and a strong jaw etc...... he has a commandeing presence on screen.
James said on 16/Mar/11
Andrew yeah i thought on screen he could look a strong 6ft4 guy.
Andrew1995 said on 15/Mar/11
with stretching his head, 6'4'' does look right in this image.
Rob, could it be his peak height was a bit higher since he's aging.
shohs said on 15/Mar/11
he is not more thn 6'0 or 6'1
James said on 9/Mar/11
didn't look 6'4 near ted danson
Shaun said on 8/Mar/11
Looks more 6'3" now I think, 6'4" peak.
James said on 4/Mar/11
he looked similar in height to Ted Danson in Loch Ness. In fact Tom Selleck looked taller in comparison to Danson than Nick Brimble did.
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 3/Mar/11
Not 6'4, but certainly at least 6'2.
Mathew said on 1/Mar/11
James says on 26/Feb/11
i'd go as far as saying he looks 185-186cm nodding his head down next to rob. he looks nowhere near 6'4 in the pic.

Hmm, I see 6'2" but yeah in this particular photo he certainly dose not look 6'4".

He could be a former 6'4" who doesn't know he's now closer to 6'3".
James said on 17/Jan/11
sorry i meant the bill LOL
James said on 16/Jan/11
He looked huge when he appeared in the billy only 3-4 years ago.
east meets west said on 14/Jan/11
I met Nick Brimble twice about 25 years ago and he really was very tall back then. Perhaps with age (or whatever) he has lost a bit of height - seems to happen to most of us eventually!
The Fox said on 8/Jan/11
i remember him playing Big Billy in an episode of The Professionals. He has very strong gypsy features. Looks about 6ft5 on telly!
Menace 195cm said on 6/Jan/11
really quite tall indeed, i think 193cm is just right, he is a tad shorter than me. haha
James said on 4/Jan/11
In Submerged still looked 6'4 or 6'3.5?
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/11
If he was really 6'4" the top of your head would be at his chin
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/11
What's with all the Nick Brimble interest?! Bizarre.

Of course he lost a couple of inches after he was electrocuted in the 70s.
Anonymous said on 1/Jan/11
In reply to Rob, please go look at your picture of you and Brandon Routh. You have him listed as 6'2.5 and this is exactly how he looks next to you in the photo of you and him..
James said on 1/Jan/11
He's still very tall at 6'3.25 (191cm). Was for sure a legit 6'4 in his day.
Moke said on 29/Dec/10
@ Anonymous:
I dont think that's true. Just looks at most ex-basketball players: they stay in shape keeping their height, being often over 6'7. I think it is less a question of your stature but first of your general life-style (weight, habits, job, work out, nutrition, maybe even education).
Anonymous said on 28/Dec/10
Rob, why do you have him at 6'4"? He barely looks 6'2" in this pic...

[Editor Rob: no he looked taller than 6ft 2 I'm pretty sure of that, as tall as 6ft 4, well who knows nowadays!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
Not 6"4

Looks 6"3.5 or 192cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/10
That's a very ignorant statement, anonymous. A tall person is more than capable of living a long and prosperous life...
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/10
i don't get why all these big guys are such an attraction. it is not healthy to be a towering 6'4 or 6'6. The human frame is not meant to be that tall. Many of these people have many serious health problems as they age. They also lose height (more slouching) when older. The few extreme tall people i know/met have back problems and knee problems. If one is over 6'4 it's almost a slow death sentence and trail of problems.
Matt said on 8/Dec/10
Incase you guys want proof look here ---> Click Here (6 Foot 2.5 exact in this picture)

[Editor Rob: I don't quite have 1cm of hair at the top of my head ;)

currently my hair is longer on top compared to how it is that day with brimble, but look at it: there's more half a centimetre than a cm :)]
James said on 3/Dec/10
Rob sorry about the questions but do you think 6'2.5 is too low for him nowadays? Like many very tall people Nick could be developing a bit of an arched back?

This guys a bit of a mystery though? In the 1996 film Loch Ness (have you seen it rob?) with Ted Danson he looked like 1 inch taller so maybe a peak of 6'3.25 or 6'3.5 could have been closer than 6'4? Weird I always pictured this guy at a legit 6'4 guess looks can be deceiving?

[Editor Rob: not seen that movie since it came to video. But I think he was still taller than 189cm]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
6ft 3.5in now
rob89 said on 1/Dec/10
I can't see much over 6'2 for him here honestly, even considering his slightly poor posture (also Rob isn't exactly standing perfectly straight either, something most here seem to forget), unless Rob has a significant shoe advantage, which he doesn't mention anywhere on this page. I'll give him 6'2.5 nowadays, possibly approaching 6'4 in his 20s out of bed/in the morning.

Either way he definitely looks closer to 6'2 than 6'4 in this photo. A genuine 6'4 guy should look taller than this next to a 5'8 guy, even with not-so-perfect posture.

[Editor Rob: footwear was pretty similar, him dress shoes, mine 1 inch sneakers.

although by 8am that day I was probably already at my lowest height, I got 90 minutes sleep because I was at a wedding and got to bed by 1.30am and then up at 3am to sort myself to then get to the airport etc!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/10
no...just 6"4 peak
James said on 21/Nov/10
hugh would you agree on a peak of 194cm for this guy?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Nov/10
Looks between 6"3 and 6"4. 192cm probably
James said on 10/Nov/10
It could be poor posture. I agree he does look a weak 6'3 in comparison to rob and probably solid 6'3 if he stood better.

Clearly not 6'4 anymore judging by the pic.
Matt said on 9/Nov/10
actually i did the height comparison using robs photo next to the measureing stand and the top of his head comes up to only 189.5cm or just ofer 6ft 2.5in he is in reality, a weak 6ft 3
Shaun said on 28/Oct/10
6'42 peak, looks nearer 6'3" in this photo.
