How tall is Penny Smith

Penny Smith's Height

5ft 5 ½ (166.4 cm)

UK TV Presenter. She's on record as saying she lies about her height, so who knows, she might be generous when she also says: "I like being 5ft 7in, but not when I was younger. I seemed to grow up surrounded by boy hobbits" in 2002.

Always thought she looked quite tall on tv. I would have said about five feet eight to nine. Must be the heels.

I would say though that Andrew Castle does look a legit 6'3". He had 3 inches on Gavin Henson who I can confirm is around 6' flat having met him.

Penny is featured in last weeks Closer magazine and gives her height as 5'5''.In this weeks copy, actress and former model Linda Lusardi is quoted as 5'2''.

Last week on GMTV,invited by co host Andrew Castle (6'3'') to stand up next to him and a 6'2'' girl to compare how short Penny is.Penny didn't give her height,but in comparison to the other 2,looked around 5'4''.She stood about shoulder height to them.

Can't tell what heels they're wearing tho that clearly.Better indications are the other pics mentioned.I've not seen one pic of her with Kate Garraway where she looks at the very most,an inch taller.Most show them about the same height and I know having met Kate she's definitely 5'3'' if not a tad under.

Another picture of Penny on Getty stood next to actress Samantha Bond who you have listed at 5ft 6.5.At least 2 inches shorter than her.

[Padraig: I can see the picture you are speaking of but she isn't standing properly. She is in This one though.]

Good addition. As you say she lies about her age and in particular her height.In fact it's relatively easy to guage her height from pics on Getty.She is dwarfed next to Gaby Roslin,even taking into account their different footwear,in those pics she appears around 5'4''.Also she is about 3 inches shorter than Carol Vorderman who is 5'6 and a bit at most.
Compared to her best pal Mariella Frostrup who is a debateable 5'4'',Penny is at best 1/4 inch taller.
Her GMTV colleagues; Falconer is much taller;Kate Garraway whom I've met and is as she claims 'only 5'3'',is only a tad shorter,and the only person she is noticeably taller than is Claire Nasir,but she is barely 5ft tall.
I think she can be comfortably downgraded to easily 5'4 and a half and that would still be generous.See what you think Rob.

[Padraig: Rob isn't here at the moment, I'm just adding entries he's given me, since I know all the British names anyway :=)

She looks taller than frostrup (who could be 5 feet 4 and a half) and an inch shorter than vorderman. I doubt under 5 feet 5, I'll ask Rob.

I have that Garraway quote to add, Penny doesn't look much taller than Kate.]
