For years I only ever saw Paul sitting down with pals Angus Deayton and Ian Hislop, but when I saw him standing when he did 'Room 101', I was utterly shocked!

Now, however, it's no news to me!

6ft2. 😁

I guess you could put a peak height of his current listing and then 6 ft 1.5 for his current height. Doesn’t really matter though.

Rob, are you going to change his listing to 6 ft 1.5?

I'm not sure if he's the kind of guy who was 6ft 2 and maybe got measured in recent years between the 2, he could look a 6ft 2 guy in 90's with people

Rob, I watched a bbc program he was on this evening and he quoted his height as being 6 ft 1, 6 ft 2 and said his mother was 5 ft 8 and his father 5 ft 9. I have emailed you screenshots of the subtitled program as I can’t upload to imgur currently.

Could have been measured around 6ft 1.5, hence saying 6ft 1-2...

I mean he's tall but always remember him having a decent heel shoe when he used to sit with guests on 101. Maybe he is 6'2?

He always looked tall on Room 101. I had read 6'3 for him years ago and have no quibble with 6'2. I'd guess he is a strong 6'2.

Am not so sure he is a full 6'2. Certainly wakes up at this height but would argue that he is a strong 6'1 in the evening.

I only saw him sitting down on have I got news for you. I honestly thought he was 5'11 and change. But I will go with 6'2 looking more closely at proportions.

I didn't know quite how tall Paul was until I saw him standing up on 'Room 101'! I was rather surprised, I must say! He looks like a hulking great guy! If I had to guess before, I would have said 6ft2 - 6ft3. I shall opt for the former, as written here.

Paul absolutely towered above Ian Hislop, you would imagine he was 6 foot 4.
