Rob, why did he get an upgrade? I thought you said he could be under 5'10
Editor Rob
He might have measured 5ft 10.25 at the Doctor's office.

He would of grown taller since then so I would say something in between "5'13" and 6ft

Great example of a strong 5'9.75 to flat 5'10 type of lad. I'd go with 177 cm.

I have him at 176cm > 177cm. Not quite 5'10 (178cm), but a strong 5'9 range guy.

So do you believe Ricky could really be 5'10.25?
Editor Rob: there's a chance he is yes, but also as much chance he is roughly 5ft 10 or even drops a little under

Rob, I have learnt that twitter displays the time of it's headquarters for every tweet, which is based on San Franscisco, California. London is 8 hours ahead, so the 4.29 am would be a 12.29 pm afternoon time in Britain. He also has another tweet made during The Voice UK live sessions, the time displaying is 1:44 pm, adding 8 hours would be 9:44 pm which is a time The Voice Live was on air, so it makes sense. Does this help at all?

I believe he got measured around noon time at that, the question is how long was he awake? It sounds like he was saying ''good morning morning'' with his tweet.
Editor Rob: the fact he increased his claim in another tweet suggests maybe the truth is closer to the one about 10 and change. But i don't know if he really was meaning first thing or not.

@Editor Rob: the 5ft 9.5 mark isn't impossible for Ricky, he may have used the fraction trick to make his 10.25 seem plausible....or he really is that in footwear.

Did you check what time of the day he wrote the tweet he made? It sounds like he got measured at that the day he tweeted it, and it sounds like it was a morning measurement? Like ''what did you wake up to today? i woke up to 5'10 1/4''. Is this possible?
Editor Rob: I checked the time said "4:29 a.m. - 16 Mar 2010", whether it tracks the person's location and true time I don't know.

@Editor Rob: overall they do look quite close...how much height Jones has lost by now I'm not as certain on, I think he has held up reasonably well through to his 70's.

If I recall correctly you used to have Tom Jones at a peak height of 5'10 and a current of 5'9.5 before his current listings right? If Tom Jones is 5'9.5 today, would that make Ricky the same?

Saw him perform last year. He gave me a very average impression. 177 is possible.

I would hope people would ignore the obviously baiting and trollish comment by sam.
Vince said on 4/May/15
I'm surprised he's 5' 10". He does look taller than he used to, but has lost a good few pounds.
sam said on 3/May/15
5'10 is soooooo short!

My friend has said she has seen him up close, but she can't remember his height Lol
tk said on 30/Apr/15
Met him twice, in 2006 and 2007. I think 5'10'' seems right for him.
Almost 5 10 said on 30/Apr/15
5' 9.5" is possible. He looked at least 1 inch shorter than Jimmy Carr on Sunday Night At The Palladium.
Almost 5 10 said on 30/Apr/15
Him and Tom Jones are level. If Tom is still 5' 10", then so is Ricky.
Almost 5 10 said on 30/Apr/15
He could be 5' 9" like Johnny Depp - can look 5' 10", gets a few 5' 8" guesses and also claims 5' 11".
cole said on 29/Apr/15
Cheers Rob! Yeah, 5'11 is quite... ambitious. Not looking taller than Sir Tom.
Almost 5 10 said on 29/Apr/15
He likes his big boots. This guy's height is all over the place! Although his 5' 11" claim is definitely a stretch - "Could it be, could it be that you're joking with me? And you don't really reach one-eighty..."
Almost 5 10 said on 29/Apr/15
Hold fire on this one. He may well be 5' 10". Could have always been a "posture guy". But look at him with Dave Grohl in 2005, looks more 5' 8-9" at best.
Almost 5 10 said on 29/Apr/15
How sure are you on this one, Rob? Always gets 5' 8" listings and used to look it - until The Voice, where he has suddenly 'shot up' to at least 5' 9-10" range. I think he has starting wearing lifts to be honest. I was surprised when I saw him next to people like Tom Jones, particularly on this year's series!
[Editor Rob: I think giving that 10.25 is to make it sound more believable, he can look anywhere in 5ft 9-10 range, but 5ft 8? I don't believe he looks that height.]

Photo hasn't come out Rob. This guy looks almost unrecognisable to five years ago. He used to be fat in the face, but now looks quite chiselled looking with Beckham like hair. Now I know he's obviously lost at least four stone, but he must have had surgery or something cosmetic done... I always thought of him as average height, probably the most I'd believe.
