Very good looking woman

I think 5 ft 7 is an ideal height for a woman, not too tall but above average, can look tall in good heels. 5 ft 7 range is like 6 ft range for a guy.

Difficult one really at times she can look 5'9 other times 5'6 plus tv can make her look taller

I remember an old article from The Daily Mail (uk) in 2005 where they were comparing various celeb's BMI's. She was listed as being 5 feet 8 inches tall and 11 stone 12 pounds.Still,I'm not sure how accurate this is.Also,everywhere else I've seen her height listed it has been 5' 7 and she has even said this herself so..

She looks no less than 5'8" proportionally here.

She always gave a tallish impression to me, can look 5'10" range in heels.I'd have guessed 5'7 or 5'8" barefoot, she's certainly above average range anyway. Poor woman, see she's moving away from Charles Saatchi, nasty man.

Perfect height for perfect lady!

I think the only reason Nigella is 5' 7" is because the top of her head (the highest point towards the back) slopes upwards (see side profile photos of her),probably a sign of high intelligence (sic),but she definitely doesent look a regular 5' 7" to me,she doesen't have the gait and posture of someone 5' 7",more like 5' 5" until her skull slopes upwards on top giving the extra 2 inches.

She is 5'7 ... standing next to Regis Philbin (supposedly 5'6) with heels, she was towering over him.

I've seen her on the Wogan Show and she's not that tall. I'd say 5'5 at tallest. 5'7 with heels, and 5'9 with the camera effect.

I'd say Conan O'Brien had maybe 6

she is 5'7 so i believe,although ill agree that camera angles can make people look much taller.I saw her on tv once and she looked about 6 ft

I stumbled upon her cooking show and I thought she had the appearance of someone much taller. I think t.v. can expand a persons height by a couple of inches. I thought she appeared to be in the category of 5'8"ish.
