I’ve remembered that Classic EastEnders and it’s a mixture of merriment and awfulness. A young Asian boy has kept his brother’s secret as to who he’s dating and the violent father has found out and hit the youngster with a lamp he bought the father as a Christmas present - how DISGUSTING. The following morning the boy can’t breathe properly yet he won’t say what his father has done. I wouldn’t be so gracious!

It would seem that Kat and Alfie are getting married at Christmas. The place looks lovely and festive, and is making me look forward to this coming Christmas! A couple have a new ginger kitten, but I have to find out who they are. 🐈

Shane gets 5ft11.5. 🎄

That has to be the funniest intro I’ve ever seen in any Soap!
What a conman!

He’s swiped one of Ricky’s apples now! Well, Ricky can hardly sell it with a bite missing; he’s nabbed a banana too….

What a cheeky little devil Shane is playing! 😂🤣😹

He’s just started in Classic EastEnders and so far, he’s pilfered from a market stall and demanded a refund, which he got! Now he’s pretending to be someone else, and is working in the Queen Vic, having deceived Peggy. He’s helping himself liberally to booze as well!

However, he’s a likeable sort, and we know he mends his ways.

Alfie’s dancing Christmas trees in EastEnders that he’s selling down the market look more like dancing Mr Hankies!

(Mr Hanky is the Christmas poo from the cartoon South Park, and he really does look like the brown Christmas trees that Alfie is knocking out!)

🎄💩😂👃🌷🌺💐 “You smell an awful lot like flowers!”

Isn’t it great to see that Shane is back in ‘EastEnders’?

He always looked huge in EastEnders! In going way above 6ft.

⭐ Heeeeey Up! I've seen the scene again and DJ Jordan said that Shane, who was secretly throwing stones at the lav, had frightened him so much that he could have followed through! The duo sat on the bench laughing and then Shane asked Jordan to pull his finger - and he fell for it!!!

Then there was a flatulent sound and the two celebs laughed even louder!

It's all about male bonding.....👌

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Nov/20
I KNEW Shane would be a massive laugh on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity....'! Did I hear him fart when he was fooling around the toilet vacinity when Jordan the DJ was having a pee? Or did he do it when Jordan came out? One thing I'm sure about is that the two of them were in absolute hysterics afterwards!

He must be losing quite a bit of height!
pov said on 10/Feb/20
I’d give him 182cm, I dont mind when people this height claim 6 foot, because it basically is unless you want to be all like techincally he’s 5”11.999999999999
James B 172cm said on 4/Oct/19
rob cant imagine Shane only because half an inch shorter than Robert Kazinsky.

i'd say 181cm range like scott malsen. danny dyer for sure look a more a legit 5'11.5 out of the three.
Editor Rob
In person there isn't as much as an inch between them, although I can see 181 and near 183 as viable arguments.

Big Rob, how tall does Jake Wood look next to Shane in this pic? they have the same footwear

Editor Rob
I'd have guessed Wood near 5ft 10 there, he's one of those guys who looks like he's got a smaller eye-chin than eye-crown length.

Big rob, here is a clip below with Shane standing next to Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) how tall would you say Adam looks?

Editor Rob
Could be 5ft 8.5 there.
Nik said on 27/Dec/18
@ Rob - Do either of you have a footwear advantage in the photograph above? If so, how much?

It's great that Alfie survived his fall, it will be interesting to see how everything unfolds on "Eastenders" following recent events!
Editor Rob
Those sneakers are in 0.7 range, Richie shoe is closer to 1 inch than the 0.7 inch
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Dec/18
What a fantastic twist, even if he did nick his baby daughter!

With an injury to the head like that, maybe he wasn't thinking straight, but one thing's for sure....

He'll be back!
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Dec/18
What a horrible ending to yesterday's Christmas 'EastEnders'. I sincerely hope Alfie survives that nasty fall, but only time will tell....

5ft11.25 for Shane. 🤕🎄🔔🎍🎅

Looks 5 ft 10.25
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Dec/18
It's great to see Shane back in 'Eastenders'! What if Kat finds out that he has just had a daughter with her cousin? It'll be claws out! Grrr! 🐯

He still looks the same height. He also looks very friendly in the above picture! I will give him 5ft11.5 and a piece of advice: cut Kat's fingernails! In Soapland, all secrets come out in the end!

if shane is 182cm what do you think scott maslen(jack branning) is based off this pic of the 2 of them, scott is not standing as straight as shane though

5'11, 5'10.5 there.
Peter 179cm said on 11/Aug/16
180cm flat. He's clearly leaning,but he's also having a footwear advantage over Rob(not much,maybe 1cm at most),so a flat 5'11,imo.

Hey rob,,, what height is Perry Fenwick who plays Billy Mitchell? What does he look onscreen?
Editor Rob: he did claim 5ft 8, but he might be 5ft 7 range

I always thought he looked more 5 ft 6 range!
Editor Rob
the funny thing, I think he could look taller than jamie forman, another guy who claimed 5ft 8!
James B said on 25/Mar/16
181cm. More 5'11 guy than 6ft

Dave said on 30/Dec/15
Rob, I think he looks more 5'11 here, plus he's got a bigger heel on his boots than your shoes so could be a weak 5'11
Editor Rob
he could be anywhere in 5ft 11-11.5 range. Like Danny dyer, I don't think he's a big six footer.
