rob do you think 175.3 his miday or evening height ?
I think Shane probably holds 5ft 9 most of the day through afternoon...at night possibly a little under it, but if so a small amount.

Nobody who's been watching 'Coronation Street' this week can have come out of it without being moved and saddened by the sudden suicide of Aidan, played by Shayne Ward.
I have seen all the repeats and caught today's Omnibus, yet still I've been moved to tears each time.
If any good is to become of this storyline, and lives are saved, wouldn't that be fantastic? Nobody could tell how depressed Aidan was, not even those closest to him, and that has, without doubt, alerted the country to be on the look-out for any tell-tale signs displayed in friends and family with a history of depression, but put on a brave front. The fact is, those who are serious about suicide WILL NOT LET ON. It is up to us to look after these fragile souls, and if we can see ourselves in his pattern of behaviour, help can often be just a phone call away - to the Samaritans, for example.
'Coronation Street' can be praised for the treatment of this tragic subject and I have seen headlines which read, 'Coronation Street storyline will save lives.'
I do hope so.
Maybe Shayne now wishes to concentrate on his musical career. This 5ft9 (a strong 5ft9 example, to be sure!) multi-talented young man has proved himself beyond doubt to be an excellent and sensitive actor. I wish him all the best for the future!
Shayne gets 5ft9.

Fancy that! Shane goes in for the 'X' Factor, wins it and then years down the line, he wins a part in a top British soap, 'Coronation Street', as a member of a family containing a star, Kym Marsh, who found fame in 'Pop Idol', with her pop group 'Heresay'! 🎤🎼🎶🎵🎧📀
Another coincidence is that at 5ft9, Shane is the male equivilant to Kym's 5ft4! 📺

I thought he was 6 foot at least when he won the x factor in 2005.

If he claimed 5"9.5 I would believe him but he is a strong 5"9 and can appear 176cm at times but I can't see him looking shorter than 175cm.

Rob how tall would you say his new girlfriend Sophie austin is? She played lindsay Butterfield in hollyoaks. There's photos of them on Google. I thought 5'7" at first but maybe 5'6"-5'7"?
Editor Rob: wouldn't have said more than 5ft 6 for her.

Surprising, for some reason I thought he was at least 6 ft but never really took much notice of him.

Rob he is at a height which is a cut off point for short comments strong 5ft 9in guys never look short weak 5ft 9in guys start too lose the short look they are pushing the average range.

Would u agree that that is how a legit 5-Niner looks, I mean in person and on photos he looks taller. I guess we consider 5-Nine short because most "shorties" claim to be 5--9 when their not.
[Editor Rob: I think he looks about what he claims yeah.]
said on 1/Aug/11
Why was shayne downgraded from 176 to 175?..He can be 176cm barefeet, or?
[Editor Rob: he claims 5ft 9, so he is just listed 5ft 9 flat.]

How tall does Shayne look, here, with the forever-leaning/bent Joe Calzaghe?
To me, if Joe were to straighten up, it looks a bit more than 3 inches (and, I'm still convinced Joe's not a full 6'0", but that's neither here nor there).
[Editor Rob: I think he's near his claim.]

Can someone post some pics of him next to simon, and how tall is louis?sure this bloke is shorter than 5ft 9, e looked pretty short when he was standing next to other celebs
Elio said on 28/Mar/06
Thanks Paul, I guess he must be doing a lot of travelling about these days. Your testimony pretty much closes the lid on him being 5'10"+.
Editor Rob said on 28/Mar/06
I added the picture of Paul+Shayne.
The camera is quite high up, so this actually makes Ward look taller than what Paul estimated him - this is like the opposite effect of having the camera shooting from down low upwards and the closer person looking taller than they really are.
paul said on 27/Mar/06
Definitely was him,and I have the pictures to prove it
paul said on 27/Mar/06
Elio,I am sure it was shayne.I have sent a photo to the site to prove it.
[Editor Rob: yes, thanks paul, I shall post this picture soonish...]
Elio said on 26/Mar/06
paul, you sure it was him? According to his official site he was in England last week.
paul said on 26/Mar/06

ALYSSA said on 4/Feb/06
Shaynes height is just right hes gorg leave him alone u bullies!
shayne said on 3/Jan/06
why would you care about my bloody height!!! its f**king stupid!
elio said on 2/Jan/06
After viewing more photos/footage of this guy , i'd say about 5'10".
[Editor Rob: yeah, I can squeeze him to 5ft 9.5 ;) Eternal problem of comparing someone to Simon Cowell is you never know just how tall that guy is with his dubious footwear...I couldn't find Ward saying his height yet on the fansites though, but I'm sure he's stated it some magazine]
Kelsey said on 30/Dec/05
I know this lad, he's the cousin of my sisters friend. I am 5'8 and he seemt about 3 inches taller, making him 5'11.
elio said on 22/Dec/05
Wow. 5ft 8??? This guy seems over average height to me (5'11" / 6'0")
[Editor Rob: actually, hold the press, this 173 was too low for him - now that I've seen more pics of him beside Kate whatsherface and the other judges like cowell/osbourne/walsh...I think 176cm is closer, so he's upgraded...not to 5ft 11 mind you ;)]
Tubbs said on 22/Dec/05
Any idea how tall last years winner Steve Brookstein is Rob? I reckon atleast 5'9", but not totally sure.
[Editor Rob: I would say about 5ft 10 for brookstein. I'm not sure he had the best posture at times]
