I’ve just watched Andi Osho beat Paul in a celebrity edition of The Chase. Paul said that she’s the first celeb contestant to achieve this with Paul as the Chaser.

I found 169cm for Andi; she was overwhelmed with this well-earnt honour. What a clever girl!

There was a question on the Chase this morning as to which party had a cat as its leader. It could only have been The Monster Raving Looney Party, and Paul got it right.

I voted for them one year! πŸˆπŸ…

In one of this morning’s Chases, Paul said to a contestant, β€œI’m surprised you didn’t know the answer to the T-Rex question. They were like the One Directions of the early 70s, only with talent!”

Well said, Paul! πŸ˜‰

5 foot 8.

Congratulations to John, Emma and Pat, who won Β£13K each on an exciting edition of The Chase! Paul was, as usual, really lovely about it.

I can’t see less than 5ft8 for Paul.

Paul is dressed up as The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland on The Christmas Chase. He bemoaned that he’d been chased round the studio by The Vixen - very funny!

Five eight.

There was a Canadian woman called MaryAnne on The Chase today. She amassed Β£8,000 in the build-up but didn't get through. One of the questions she got wrong was that the World of Leather was a furniture store.

To finish, Paul Sinha, today's Chaser, added "I've been to a shop in Canada called World of Leather - and that was a very different place indeed!"

Five foot eight.

On today's Chase, we had the most AMAZING player facing Paul, by the name of Darron. His reasoning and the things he knew were second to none except, perhaps, a Chaser on top form. Darron won Β£35,000 for his team, and one of the most exciting questions that he answered with his uncanny powers of deduction was regarding the following invention.

Bradley asked, "What did African American nurse Marie Van Brittan invent?"

Unfortunately, I cannot remember any but the correct answer, and that is that the nurse invented the home security system. Darron said that it was highly likely to be CCTV because a nurse would find it very useful to keep her eye on her patients.

Bravo, Darron! Bravo!

Marie Van Brittan, also known as Marie Von Brittan Brown, was born at the end of October 1922. She was nervous of spending time alone in charge of all her patients, hence she had the brainwave of creating a home security system, which blossomed into the CCTV which keeps the streets that much safer for us today.

Paul gets 5ft8 again.

⭐ No, no, no - make that Parkinson's Disease that Paul suffers from.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Oct/21
So Paul admits as one quarter of the participants of the unseen health issues advert that he loathes bees and wasps. (The brainy fellow suffers from Hodgkinson's Disease). I'm not overly keen on them either but the insects that freak me out the most are fleas and flies. I hate them with a passion for all the diseases they've spread throughout history and the people they've killed in the most detestable of ways. The victims of the Great Plague had to be burnt or their corpses would have continued spreading the hellish disease. Nostradamus had to burn the body of his wife, a victim of the Plague in 16th century France. 😒

Always game for a laugh, Paul was in stitches in yesterday's Chase when Bradley had the giggles. I defy anyone not to have been!

The jolly comedian gets 5ft8. πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘Œ

πŸ˜‘πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜ Simple Correction Time! πŸ˜πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜‘

They WON Β£6K each!

The three contestants didn't WORM their way to the money, πŸ’°πŸ› and they didn't walk away with any WIMMINGS!

Oh no! How can someone like Paul get the drummer of the Rolling Stones wrong? He said Charlie Watts was the drummer with the group Busted! He admitted that he thought Bradley said a different surname but come on Paul - you're better than that!

It goes to show that even the Chasers can experience nerves. The team of three wom Β£6,000 each, with 5 or 6 push backs.

5ft8. πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/May/21
So he does, Rob! I'm quite stunned; I thought he was nearer 5ft10, but then I'd never had the chance to compare him to Mark and Shaun.

Until now.....! πŸ‘πŸ‘

While I was hunting around for Darragh Ennis's height earlier on, I read some very sad news about Paul's quiz expert friend, Jon Jacob, who sadly passed away as a result of complications from catching the Coronavirus. Paul is heartbroken and has paid tribute to Jon, who was 69 years old. He was described as 'erudite and caring', and he worked as a solicitor. So tragic....

in reply to your email click here - he agreed 6ft 3 was much closer than 5ft 7...

click here - looks at least 6ft 1 there

Heeeeey! I've just seen the most fantastic Chase in a long time. All four players got through, including an elderly lady called Marilyn, who had previously embarrassed Brad with her wittily-put response about antennae.

Paul had to beat 28 correct questions in the final - something he very nearly accomplished, though he was beaten with a few seconds to spare.

He said to the petite Marilyn, "That was your finest performance since 'Some Like It Hot'!

I second that! If anyone's wondering whether getting older means getting wiser, then Marilyn is all the evidence you need....

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Oct/20
I saw that fantastic episode again with the solitary player, named Susan, winning Β£50,000.

It was every bit as exciting second time around, even though I remembered the outcome.

Well done Susan!

⭐ Some woman on The Chase just now called Paul TINY! He didn't have a cunning answer to that one and I'm not surprised!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jul/20
There was a question just now on 'The Chase' as to the name of the mouse from 'The Aristocats'. I wrote just the other day - somewhere! - about the collecting of a wide variety of plastic model characters which used to be available in cereal packets when I was a child. One particularly popular one for me was 'The Aristocats', and through collecting these little delights, I learnt the names of the characters long before I ever saw the movie.

The first plastic animal I opened was a tiny dark blue mouse. His name was 'Roquefort', and I remembered it well. The other options on the Chase quiz were 'Brie' and 'Camembert'. Paul reckoned the mouse was called 'Camembert', but he was a very gracious loser. The pretty young girl, Rebecca, πŸ‘©πŸ’ got it right and, had it not been for my enthusiastic childhood collecting, I'd not have had the merest clue myself!

Good sport and excellently witty Paul gets his usual 5ft8.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/May/20
That was AMAZING! I saw a lady contestant, Susan, take on Paul single-handedly - and she won Β£50,000, as a result of several push-backs which she knew. Paul was absolutely lovely about it, and congratulated her most sincerely. I was wiping away tears of happiness and awe!

I was most impressed this morning when Paul got a Kate Bush question right, adding that he absolutely loves her! Touche Paul, touche!

Five eight and a quarter. πŸ˜„πŸ‘

I woke up from napping just now to see a lady by the name of Bel single-handedly take on Paul Sinha. She was the only contestant to make the final and she answered 19 questions like lightning. Paul beat her with 16 seconds to spare, but not before saying that she was the cleverest contestant he'd ever witnessed play 'The Chase'.

What a fantastic second prize that was for Bel!πŸ†πŸ₯ˆ

Paul gets 5ft8.

On the Chase I'm watching at the moment, Paul took great delight in saying the answer to his question, which was 'Robert Scheidt'! He added that it gave him a legitimate reason for saying the word 'scheidt'! πŸ’©

And who can blame him? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Tonight on an old Chase, there was a singular contestant getting through. His name was Alan and he was an older gentleman. Paul was the Chaser and he was so full of praise for him. It was a joy to watch. Alan accrued 18 correct questions in the final, but alas, he was beaten by Paul.

Alan was a winner in my eyes - and Paul's. πŸ˜πŸ…πŸ†

⭐ He's slimmed down a lot too!

How great it is to see Paul on 'Countdown' this week. He keeps getting the numbers games - and completely differently to my ways! πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

@ Rob - Then we would know you know, whether you or 3 other voters know!

2 of my friends just met and got good pics with Paul. They are 5’10” and 5’7” and Paul basically looks 5’8 1/2”, but with a slight footwear advantage. After seeing those pics I don’t see him under 5’8”

@ Sandy Cowell - Fartpilot (autocorrect tried to change it to far toilet!) is a wonderful word, one that is sure to bring about a giggle or two! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/May/19
It's time Paul gets another comment and vote from me. Why's this? The reason is that I'm watching a Chase at nearly 2.30 in the morning, having spent all day in bed unable to move after a four-hour onslaught on the kitchen, and the downstairs hall the night before!

This guy is showing his true comical side, and even being a good sport when he gets the questions wrong. In other words, he's cheering me up so much that I have delayed putting a film on! Rarely do we see the Chasers standing up, apart from when they march on, so, because I don't have a picture handy of Paul Sinha and the 5ft6.5 Jenny Ryan in her stockinged feet handy at this moment in time (fat chance of that!), I will go along with Rob's 5ft8 for Paul. (Rob/Paul - geddit?) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹

Oh, it wasn't THAT awful! 😜

Some of those 'The Chase' personalities have done smaller comic events, but none I ever been too.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Jan/19
Earlier this week, when Paul was the Chaser in a 5 o'clock showing of 'The Chase', one of the contestants had the question "What is a fartpilot?"

Bradley, trying to keep a straight face and Paul, who was openly grinning, and the contestant, were then given three options:

a) The Cruise Control,
b) The Backseat Driver or
c) The Exhaust Pipe.

The contestant went for the logical exhaust pipe, as did I and I think even Paul chose the second option. The answer was the cruise controller, whatsoever the blazes THAT is!

I wouldn't want to tell someone that I'm a fartpilot, would you? I wonder if you have to be a certain height to qualify? That would be a polite way of opting out for me, hopefully!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jan/19
⭐️ Paul has released a single called 'Mijn Girl', and when I found this out, I discovered that it's by no means his first. Doctor, comedian, 'Chaser' and musician - this is one talented guy!

Sandy Cowell said on 30/Dec/18
Oh YES! That is simply wonderful to see the hilarious Sinhaman making his debut on Celebheights! Yippee, yowza and thanks so much, Rob! 😁

Do you think it's possible that Paul's white attire 'shortens' him at all, Rob, in the same way that pale-coloured clothes are reputed to give the impression of adding a few more pounds to a person's girth? I have been looking at pictures of Paul, and rarely does he look THAT much smaller than the 5ft8.5 Bradley Walsh, who stands extremely well, thus making the very most of his height. Paul can sometimes even look the same height as Bradley, though most of the time, there is a slight difference, but no one can ever get away with saying it's a marked one!

I contemplated 5ft7.75/8 for Paul. As I've mentioned in a previous comment, I've had gourmet portions of 'The Chase' over Christmas, and the Chasers have all been starring, except for Jenny, who joined the show too recently to appear - yet! - on shows on the 'Challenge' Channel, which are all a few years old and often far more.

I will settle for 5ft8 then, and I don't think it's his out-of-bed height either. I can see him waking up to 5ft8.5, and going down to just under 5ft8 after a particularly active day.

Thank you once again, Rob; now we have the complete 'set' of the Chasers!
Editor Rob
I can buy the 5ft 8 for him, I don't think he's really that much smaller than Walsh.
