Pete Burns was born 61 years ago today.

5ft8, though I thought he was taller from the video 'You Spin Me Round'. He was really good looking in those days.

RIP Pete XXX πŸ•―οΈ

I remember when their song 'You Spin Me Round' was released. Watching the video actually made your head spin! Yes, Pete was one of a kind alright...

Gone but never forgotten - ever.

Unbelievably sad to hear about Pete's far too early passing.
RIP Pete - a good sort!

Shorter than expected. Thought he was 5'11ish but again he's always in heels.

"Getttttt meeee the heart goes bang-bang..bang-bang aaahahaaa!!!!". Yep 5'8 listing is good.

Okay, Rob, I found the source of that quote I had mentioned...and it's!! Yes, I had forgotten that I had read it here!! You yourself had posted on the Michael Barrymore page:

Pete Burns in Jackie magazine said: "I'm not exactly a petite little dolly bird. I'm very masculine. I'm 6ft. tall and quite a big bloke".

I've never heard of anyone giving themselves 6 feet of height and then "5'8 ish"(which strongly implies they could be even shorter than THAT).

Then again, Pete Burns is about as far from ordinary as one can get!
Editor Rob: he already had a head size of an above average guy in the 80's, with all his surgery, his head on his body looks even bigger. I think in heels he would be near 6ft.

I am shocked! S/he is listed as 5'11" on Google and has DEFINITELY been quoted as saying "six feet tall". Are you sure about this, Rob? Maybe I'm getting fooled by the massive heels and hair, but I'm 100% POSITIVE that a 6 foot claim from him/her exists. I'll try to find it again.
Editor Rob: that old 6ft quote did seem too much at the time, but he did come out with the 5ft 8 on his twitter, so it's from his own would be one of the biggest deflations I've seen from one claim to the next.
