At 84, the loss of two inches is probably quite common. Here is a photo of Richard next to Stephen Fry from 1997: Click Here
Rob, if we assume that Fry's peak height was 6ft 4.75, how tall looked Wilson at that time when he was 61?

🎈🍹🎂 Happy Birthday Richard! 🎂🍹🎈

Wishing the joyful, funny Richard Wilson the happiest of Happy Birthdays.

I saw him listing his pet hates in 'Room 101'. It was the funniest one I've ever seen. One of his pet hates was children's 💩, hailing from a job he once had. I doubt he's very fond of the adult variety either! 😂😂😂

5ft11 peak.
5ft9 now.

It is clear that Richard Wilson is above average for his age group but I was expecting a higher listing!

His performances throughout his acting career meant he was a must for a page on here!

I don't believe it!! Honestly I thought of him as tall range for some reason. I don't know why I was thinking 6- 6'2!

Now this golden oldie is about as funny as they come! I requested him after watching an episode of "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em" early last year and that is because when he stood next to Michael Crawford, he looked surprisingly tall.

I loved that all three actors, Richard, Michael and Michele Dotrice, otherwise known as Betty Spencer in the comedy, simply couldn't stifle their laughter in the scene. Richard plays the insurance man, who is so used to Frank Spencer's constant outpouring of claims, that he dismisses his new one - of course! All three are hilarious, and watching it over and over again as I have, I reckon that they did numerous takes, but simply gave up, leaving the giggling in! I think it is one of the best moments of the series, and makes for addictive viewing!

And who can forget his wonderful performances in "One Foot in the Grave"? That comedy is about as black as they come, and it's blackness becomes more evident the older I get!

I shall give Richard 5ft11 for his peak height and 5ft8.5 for today's height.

What a delightful surprise to see that Richard Wilson has now got a page!
