🎈🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Olly! 🎂🎁🎈

Have a great 35th!

I can't see him lying about his height somehow. He seems like the sort of guy who accepts himself the way he was made - bravo to him for that!

5ft8.75.

Trust me, at 6' it's safe to say 5'8ers and 5'9ers aren't as short as this forum make them out to be.

I think Slim hit the nail on the head! There are people who are 5 ft 6 who say they are 5 ft 8, so people then see 5 ft 8 as short because the guy in front of them saying it is short. It's only a couple of inches but the perception difference is quite big.

He always looked 6 foot on the x factor.He doesn't seem 5.8.

No he didn't, you're just a VERY poor judge of height. How does he 'look 6 foot' when he isn't? Looked 5 ft 8/9 range when around others.

If he said about 5'9" on a good day he wouldnt of stressed that point. Rob has pin pointed his height
Editor Rob
It's a bit of honesty from Olly, so he should be rewarded with an honest assessment of 5ft 8.75.

I was chatting to him in the gym around 2 years ago, I'm 5ft10 1/2 & I felt like he was the same height as me. No where near 5ft 8 3/4. I know what he said 5ft9 on a good day but he prob hasn't measured himself before. No chance he is under 5ft 10. His height needs adjusting for sure

Rob, can we please give him the full 5'9"?


I'd say he's average height, probably gets guesses at 5'10" and 5'11"(cause everyone inflates themselves)
Trust me, at 6' it's safe to say 5'8ers and 5'9ers aren't as short as this forum make them out to be.
Editor Rob: I think 5ft 8 3/4 suits his claim, on a good day he's 5ft 9.

Typical average height guy, neither short or tall. 5'8-5'9 I'd say.

5'8.5. He also said his bomer length on a radio, 🤦‍♂️
HonestSlovene said on 2/Feb/17
Yeah prettmuch 174-175 cm and is 176-177 cm range first thing in the morning. Below average but not short.

I saw him on Sunday Brunch and he surprisingly looked 5'9.5" standing beside Bradley Walsh - if Walsh is 5'8". Didn't look quite as tall as 5'10" Tim Lovejoy though.
DINO said on 23/Nov/16
at least 5'9 or 5'9.5 with those shoes

Rob, how accurate do you think Olly's estimates on Sam Smith are? Is he well off the mark?
Editor Rob: he may have felt he was only 3-4 inches taller. I think Olly is being reasonably honest with his own claim of a weak 5ft 9, so he's in a good position to have a guess at Sam.

I think he is an easy 5ft10

I saw him on X Factor and he seemed a few inches taller than the host and he wasn't dwarfed by Sir Bob Geldoff.
So I was thinking he isn't so short, whereas he never really looked tall to me.
5,10 doesn't seem so off the mark, but could well be 5,9
MD said on 18/Apr/14
Rob,

A italics tag is open somewhere on this page. BTW, Robbie Williams seems to be visually more than three inches taller than this guy.
[Editor Rob: thanks I closed it]
Editor Rob said on 17/Apr/14
He does actually claim 5ft 10...
James Crowley Meridius said on 6/Dec/13
Rob he is clearly a strong 5ft 9in guy he is doesn't drop below that have you seen him on x factor he looks like a typical 5ft 9er he never looks short in pictures even on the x factor he never looked short.
David said on 1/Dec/13
Olly Murs claiming 5ft 9, Lord he is lying!!!I definetley reckon he is 5ft 7!!!
MD said on 22/Nov/13
I've always doubted the 5'9" claim for this guy. Even when he stands by himself, he looks fairly short.

Here he is with 5'4" Joe McElderry back in 2010 when they were on the X Factor:

Even taking into account the footwear difference, Olly has nowhere near five inches on Joe.
