He is more like 5ft 9 half than closer to 5ft 9 3/4 177cm.

No, he’s definitely closer to 5’10, look at the pics above. I think Rob would know better too considering he actually met him in person.

With 5'9" Liam Payne who has a footwear advantage, though nothing ridiculous:
With 5'8.75" Olly Murs:
Honestly, he strikes me as closer to 5'9" than to 5'10".
In person he looks much closer to 5ft 10 than 9.

Big Rob, what measurment would you say Russells high (morning) and low (evening) measurements could be?
5ft 9.75 might be his low, 5ft 10.5 his high range.

Big Rob, if Russel and Mike Tyson stood next to eachother, would there really be any noticable difference?
They'd be close, but I think Tyson might have the better chance of measuring slightly taller.

What lovely pics!
Nik said on 4/Aug/18
I can see 5'10"!

When I saw this photo, I instantly thought 5'10 but upon looking deeper, I think this listing is spot on. I can possibly even see him dipping a few mm or so below, in the evening. A solid 177 cm guy.

He is 5'10 in the pic, taking footwear into account he is not taller than 5'9.

@Dreampuffe I think he'd have at least half an inch on me. You'd just edge me out.

Rob, looks like this guy is height aware, look at that: Click Here
Did he look a weak 5'10 to you when you met him?
Editor Rob: he was close to 5ft 10, but I seen him at another event and he was standing looser with fans so not very bothered about height, nothing like Burn Gorman, who for each photo would breathe in and rise up to a bust a gut measurement...
or like Milo Ventimiglia who (for men mainly) would rise up on one foot for a little boost.

He seem to slouch a little but stand a little closer to the camera ,i would be not surprised if he was a complete 5"10'

@samuelcharwick: So you only lose 1cm of height throughout the whole day??
samuelcharwick said on 11/Jun/17

Rob. Could him drop to 5'9.5 at his lowest ?
Editor Rob: yes he may well fall to that at night.

If Tom Hiddlestone is 1.87 then Russell is not 1.77. They play together in The Night Manager and they appear together, Russell barefoot and Tom in about 3 cm shoes and their height difference is more than just 10 cm. Russell looks like a hobbit next to Tom.

He looks closer to 5'10 and he is near it.

Yeah, not the best photo, but there are lots of others out there, and he does appear to have relatively short legs.
said on 1/Apr/15
Not really a height question, but is it just me or is this guy all torso?
It's strange, because unlike a person with long legs who looks tall no matter which angle you shoot them from, a person with a long torso (relative) to their legs can look both taller and shorter than they really are depending on how high you photograph them up.
[Editor Rob: looks like a wide angled lens and the photographer quite close...he might though have a bit longer torso than average, I took a photo of him years ago Here
Almost 5 10

Hey Rob, you'll never guess what! I randomly found out tonight from my mum and dad, that I'm actually related to this guy!! My grandad and his grandad (George Tovey) were cousins. I then mentioned Russell Tovey - and bingo!
I'm also 5' 9.75" - yet have never met him!! YOU know him better than I do, haha! How random is that...
[Editor Rob: funny finding random things like that!]

Met him at my old work (lovely chap!) and i think 5'9.5 is perfect!

He looks a solid 5ft10 on Him and Her and does so against the backdrop of the doorframe.
