You know Rob, this has had to have been one of my biggest surprises to date!
It just goes to show how the commanding presence of an actor can bump up how tall we feel he/she might be!
I'm so glad she has a page now so thanks once again! 😁
A bit like Danny Trejo, if you didn't think about his height (or cared) you'd probably be surprised he was under 5ft 6 in person!

@ Rob: Oh thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you! You are so good to me!
Yet Roberta seems so much taller! I thought around two or three inches taller, I honestly did! I mean, in 'The Bill', she won't have even been wearing high shoes, being as she played a Police woman!
I found her immensely funny in 'EastEnders', and her conversations with Gavin Richards, the father of Tiffany and Simon, who played her gay son's boyfriend, were so funny, they were delicious!
My favourite part for her? Her flirty tour guide in 'Inspector Morse' (The Wolvercote Tongue), to some knowledgeable American tourists with an interest in Tudor history. The arguments were just so funny, especially with one called 'Janet'. Also, she flirted mercilessly with the Inspector, admitting to drinking too much! His reply? "So do I!"
She wore her dark hair long and glossy for the part, which I find can often 'overpower' a shorter woman, but it didn't her. I honestly thought from that episode that she was at least 5ft7! Well, the World is full of surprises and this is my first one today!
Terrific to see Roberta aboard celebheights!
Thanks once again, Rob, most sincerely! 😊👍
Roberta gets 5ft5.5 from me!
I think her style of acting and character can give a taller impression. I suppose you could argue 5ft 5.5 peak
