She certainly looked taller than average height and was taller than Claire goose in waking the dead 5ft 6 peak looks accurate

Oh dear! I had the 5ft7 stuck in my head (her flowery Spotlight height), and I believed it fully, due entirely to the height gap between her and Caroline Aherne, who played her daughter in 'The Royle Family', who is 5ft3, if I remember rightly.

Next time round she gets three-quarters of an inch less from both peak and today's heights, unless, Rob, you can alter my figures now - because they are clearly incorrect.


PS I still think she looks tall(ish) in the Soaps she was in and 'The Royle Family'!

@ Rob: 👍

It's brilliant to see:

a) That this great lady has a page now and

b) That you find out her height!

Let's see: I remember while watching 'The Royle Family' and thinking "Wow! She's got a much smaller daughter!" 🤔

But I never found out by how much! 😯

Now I see she is quite a tall lady. To me, 5ft7 for a woman is the beginning of 'tall', so she does qualify; it's the equivalent of a 6ft fellow!

She did look her full 5ft7 or thereabouts in 'Inspector Morse' the other day. In fact, I will go for her peak height being 5ft7 and for her current height being 5ft5.75.

Great to see her début on Celebheights! Thanks Rob! 😁
