The above picture is such a contrast to the storyline that has been written for Faith in Emmerdale.

I rather preferred the part she played opposite David Jason in A Touch of Frost.

5ft4.25. Her two Emmerdale children are much taller citizens than she is!

Sally’s character, Faith Dingle, seems to be thoroughly enjoying her spree of misbehaving in Emmerdale!

Well said Nik! After all that little Liv has endured in her short lifetime, her heart is very much in the right place. I'll never forget the way the youngster held out her hand to the boyfriend of the recently slain young doctor's daughter, Leanna, 😒 to take the lad to see the celebration the kids held in Leanna's honour, all dressed in her favourite colour, blue, and playing her favourite music. So moving.....

Anyway, with regard to Sally, I could have exploded with excitement this morning when I spotted a somewhat tanned Ms Dexter playing alongside the great David Jason in 'A Touch of Frost'! Sally played DS Maureen Lawson, and her banter with Frost is as entertaining as you'd expect from these two colourful characters.

I'd like to give Sally 5ft4.5 this afternoon. With shoes, she was around David's height.

@ Sandy Cowell - Sally is listed as 5’5” on some sites but that is above what she actually claims, the average guess (5’4.35!) is too! Maybe the average guess is her height but Rob doesn’t think so, but who knows! Sally isn’t claiming unowned height but plenty of men and women do, quite a few men and a fair amount of women are honest too and this is always nice to see. πŸ‘Œ

Liv certainly isn’t a bad person, I totally agree! Young people need punishing and positive help if they do bad things, I’m not saying Liv has done anything worthy of punishment though and I do have sympathy for her.

What a lovely thing to say to Liv, "You're too young to be a bad person."

I couldn't agree more!

5ft4.25. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ’

That was a rather nice little speech Sally gave to Lesley Dunlop, saying that Christopher Chittell's Emmerdale character, Eric Pollard, belongs to her and her alone, and that she goes where the wind blows her. She does have feelings for him and that was quite a sacrifice to make.

5ft4, but she looked more than 2" taller than Lesley in yesterday's episode.

I saw 'Attack of the Adult Babies' again the other night, and Sally looked decidedly average among the other women. Don't expect to be able to compare her to the men in this - they play the pig-snouted babies, and spend their time on their backs, and having their revolting nappies changed! πŸ˜·πŸ½πŸ’©

Sally gets 5ft4.75.

@ Nik - The average guess is her actual height.

5ft4. πŸ˜πŸ’

That's a brilliant new picture, Rob, and a dream of a photo for helping us out with Sally's height!

5ft4. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ΅

@ Sakz - It's refreshing to see!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jul/19
Faith certainly saw the funny side of the late Emmerdale character of Lisa Dingle's ashes being actually the contents of the hoover in the recent farewell 'ceremony'! "Where is she now?" someone added.

"Oh, we thought she'd be happier watching the pigs!"


How very true! Sally Dexter gets 5ft4 and Pollard gets a K up the A to kick him back to reality - because he's lost a diamond of a woman, over one measly kiss! 😝

I started watching a film yesterday called 'Attack of the Adult Babies', and found Sally playing the head matron to a 'nursery' for fat, hairy, nappy-wearing, pig-snouted male babies! Directed by fellow 'Emmerdale' star Dominic Brunt, it wasn't quite as fast-paced as I was hoping for to keep my attention, but I will probably give it another whirl when it's on again. I have seen two excellent films either with or directed by Dominic, so maybe next time...

Sally looked petite in comparison to most of the other nurses, who were all brunettes like her, except for one tiny blonde, who stood out for her smallness and her pale hair. I don't have any idea who played the little blonde, but it might be interesting to find out - and to know her height, which seemed to be around 4ft10 or 11. Mind you, as you can expect, it took a great many nurses to keep the snouted scamps under control! 🐽

Sally Dexter gets her usual 5ft4.

That's a very good idea little sue! I didn't know she was all of 17; she looks younger as she has a very young face and is, as you rightly say, a short little lass. I will investigate and make a point of asking Rob on the Height Requests page before the day is through.

Wonder how tall is the actress who plays Liv? she looks very petite, maybe about 4ft 10/11, she is 17 so fully grown now.
Sakz said on 18/Oct/18
@Nik I've noticed a lot of women on here seem to be honest about their height (certainly a lot more than men). In fact some I've seen are even as precise as to stating the fraction despite not actually claiming it.
Nik said on 17/Oct/18
This is a wonderfully honest claim from Sally Dexter!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Oct/18
@ Connor - That's what I read for her online - 5ft5!
Csimpson6ft said on 16/Oct/18
Looks about right, probably 5'4.5 at her peak or even a full 5'5 like you said Sandy.
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
@ Rob - Well, maybe she has! I'll check her out tonight! Her face when she was sussed out by Charity was a picture! 😊
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/18
YEEEAAAAAHHH! Thank you so much Rob! I think this woman is hilarious! You could say that she's grown on me - enormously!

I reckon she might have been 5ft5 in her youth, but 5ft4 nowadays seems fine for her.

She really looked the part in that masquerade ball! Her hair was coiffed to perfection! She was getting ready to rid the world of an unfortunate piece of work, but didn't quite succeed! I pity her when Kim Tate comes out of prison...
and she will!

There is a chance she might have lost a half inch by now too.
