I'm watching 'Britain's Brightest Celebrity Family' and Rita's family are playing Matthew Wright's family. I'm most impressed with her brother's knowledge. His name is Ben and he's a big-built guy, but it's difficult to judge his height because we can't see the heels worn by Rita!

5'4 isn't tiny for a woman!

🎂 A belated Happy Birthday to Rita, who turned 43 on the 10th of this month. I hope she had a lovely day and enjoys a fulfilling and prosperous year ahead. 🎂
5ft4 for this energetic bundle of fun!

I'm watching a special warm-up programme this morning to prepare the Great British Public for the next 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here', which starts on Sunday. Rita is one of a bunch of ex-contestants chatting about the show, and she's very entertaining she is too! What are they talking about? What aren't they talking about is more to the point!
My brother came in and said, "Oh, it's junk TV." I begged to differ! I can't think of a single contestant I haven't grown fond of since it started.
Rita's hair has grown really long and the pink has grown or washed out!

When she says she was tiny 5ft 4 and a size 8 is she calling herself tiny heightwise too?

How upsetting and unexpected to see Rita leave the fun and frolics of the celebrity jungle tonight. She contributed so much joy to the show and I thought she was a strong contender to win, or at least come in the top three.
It's been such a pleasure finding out what this 5ft4 actress is all about and I won't half miss her.
She's a winner in my eyes!

Rita is showing us that she's a lovely, supportive person in that celebrity jungle this year. I'm absolutely loving her! It's the hugs from her and from Fleur East that are keeping the dear, emotional Anne Hegerty strong.
I liked her as soon as I saw her, with her fun pink hair and her positive disposition. My money is on either of the three women - so far, anyway!
I was always under the impression that she's fairly small when I watched her in 'EastEnders', and 5ft4 is the small side of average. I DO understand that she feels small; I used to hang out with a crowd of girls where 5ft6/10 was the norm. Maybe she does too! There was a girl, Sally, a Mum of 5, who at 5ft4 was indeed quite little.
I will volunteer 5ft4 for this energetic and beautiful young actress. 😘

Rita is average, no way is she tiny!
