I'm on the scales all day every day. I'm 5ft 7in and 8st. My only claim to fame is my thin bones. But I'm not in particularly good shape. It's inches and wobble that are more important than weight. Daily Mirror, 1994 (May 8)

I can see the nasty piece of work - her son -doing a number on someone else soon.

Nobody deserves a son like THAT. Nobody in the world. He’s 5ft9. 😝
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Mar/23
Interesting, Nik! I thought he looked 5ft10 myself. My friend, who was 6ft-6ft1, had a father who was noticeably taller than he was, and when they walked along together, it looked vaguely amusing, as the Dad had to have been 2” taller than his pretty tall son. The father got ill and, because he was depressed afterwards, he couldn’t stop smoking and so lost a leg as a result. I used to help him out, doing his housework and ironing. He was grateful but very snappy and had me in tears, after which his son told him off. I was only in my thirties then, and before all that 💩 happened to me, which seemed to freeze my tear ducts, so I could still cry at that age. Believe me, crying is a good and healthy release, preventing things from building up and nightmares ensuing as a result.

Anyway, Audrey will be outraged when she finds out what sort of son she gave birth to. I can see her needing counselling, she already having suffered from depression when she turned ‘a certain age’ milestone.

Thank goodness this isn’t real, but imagine the mental battles that real parents would suffer if they found out they had a sicko of a son? It’s frightening…..

Sue gets 5ft7.5 as she’s still tall and stately.

@ Sandy Cowell - Audrey wouldn’t want to know him if she knew what he was like.

I agree that Todd should have a page too and I was surprised to see him listed as 5’9”, he would still be above average for his age but I thought he was a few inches taller! He is the youngest of three sons!
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jan/23
I think that maybe Todd Boyce looks taller because so many members of his English family are short, except for his Mum, that is!
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/23
“That’s my son! Always thinking of other people!”

Yeah - wiping them out, more like, as soon as they pose a threat to his filthy past. 😤😝

Please can fruitcake Stephen, American actor Todd Boyce, have a page, Rob? He’s supposedly 5ft9, but I thought he was more.
Nik Ashton said on 9/Jan/23
I’m inclined to believe her 1994 claim much more than her one from 2000!
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jan/23
It’s hard to believe that Stephen Reid is related to Audrey, who is lovely, albeit having a history of negligent parenting. Stephen is played by Todd Boyce, who is American rather than Canadian. I found only 5ft9 for him. I honestly thought he was nearer 5ft11, so that came as a massive surprise.

A page for him might be a good idea, Rob, at some stage! 🙏
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Dec/22
I feel sorry for Audrey having such a dishonest son, (Stephen) who’s prepared to kill for money, which he has done already. Now I’ve read that he’s on the prowl for another victim.

Thank Heavens that this is fictitious!

Sue is probably 5ft7.5 now.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Sep/22
That yucky Richard Hillman has started in Classic Coronation Street. He is played by Brian Capron, who starred as a teacher in Grange Hill.

Originally, he is Audrey’s friend, but Gail purloins him for herself. That’s after warning her mother not to mix with people she knows little about!

Capron is 5ft9.
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Aug/22
I really don’t blame Audrey for telling Mike Baldwin about poor Alma’s cancer. When you’re as Ill as she is, you need all the support you can get.

He does still love her…..

(Today’s Classic Coronation Street).

Doesn’t that go to show that even the taller among us are
effected by fashion faux pas?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jul/22
I’ve just looked up to see Sue on Classic Coronation Street with FLAT HAIR, and a fringe. 😟

It really doesn’t suit her and it cuts her height considerably.

5ft7.5. 💐
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Oct/21
I think she would probably claim the 5ft7 that Rob spoke about, Nik, or possibly a fraction less.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Oct/21
It would be interesting to know what she claims today!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Oct/21
Well, Rob, some women don't like being tall; I've met a few! Among them, I had a gorgeous friend, Pam, and she had long, naturally blonde hair, and people reckoned she was 6ft in her stockinged feet. She could pick me up and swing me round when I arrived to babysit for her kids, two boys and a girl.

She'd have mammoth 🐘 great cooking sessions and invite us all round, and I'd arrive armed with my calorie counter, of course! I'd watch her cooking and she'd be sampling her food and farting away, and sometimes I smacked her arse! 🤷‍♀️

She claimed to be 5ft8, but when you're as pretty as she, I don't think it really mattered.... 😂👍

Are we women ever satisfied? I think not!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Sep/21
Audrey - you can't have a cat fight with Rita at Norris's funeral. 😝 That was bang out of order!

5ft7.5. Sue, who plays Audrey, has maintained her height very well, and I can still see 5ft7.5. I read that Barbara Knox, who plays Rita Sullivan, was 5ft3 in the 80s and 90s. She, too, has kept a good posture, so I can't see much loss for her either.
Editor Rob
I did find an earlier quote from Sue in which she gave 5ft 7
Dean doe said on 18/Aug/21
She looks 5ft7
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 16/Aug/21
Sue, or rather Audrey Roberts from 'Coronation Street', has just lost her husband, Alf Roberts, who died at a New Year's party in the soap opera, 1999. As it's made in advance, I remember that he died in real life and this was on the 9th February, 1999. The actor who played him was the 5ft11 Bryan Mosley, who passed suddenly of a heart attack, aged 67. The tears shed by his friends will have been utterly genuine.

RIP Bryan Mosley 🕯️ XX
(25th August, 1931 - 9th February, 1999)

Sue gets 5ft8, peak. 💐
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jul/21
Fred Elliot said in today's Classic Coronation Street that she'd grown. Sue's character, Audrey, immediately thought he'd meant she'd grown sideways, but he'd hardly want to scupper his chances with ANY woman!

It was a compliment, Audrey!

5ft7.5. 💐😁

Peak height 5ft 8 current height 5ft 6 range
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Dec/20
Audrey was bang out of order in this morning's Classic Coronation Street. She used poor Derek Wilton's funeral as a fashion parade, sporting a brand new black outfit, and then comes out with, "I always thought he was a bit of a weirdo actually!"

But he was happy and he made Mavis happy, played by Thelma Barlow, who looks about 5ft1.25. So what if he enjoyed his garden gnomes? Lots of folk do!

⭐ About three years ago, I bought myself a garden male chicken and stuck him in the middle of the front garden. He wore a necklace which read, 'Tony the cock!'

My boyfriend suggested that I take him in in case he caused offence to my next door neighbour. He now sits in the lounge, wearing a garland of tinsel at this time of the year. I don't know how many times I've tripped over the massive fake bird!

Sue gets 5ft8. 🐓
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Oct/20
On telling her rotund husband, Alf, that Rita Sullivan is getting married, the jealous Alf only goes and stacks his car into the back of a Police vehicle!


(Today's Classic Coronation Street).

5ft8 peak and 5ft6.5 today. The latter height goes in the box. 🗳️
Paul Wood said on 30/Apr/20
She's no longer 5ft 8in but I agree that was her peak height.
Quijibo said on 19/Sep/19
I’d put her at a weak 5’7 these days but definitely think she was a good 5’8 back in the day.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 9/Jun/19
That's what I was gonna say nik she may have been 5ft 8 at one stage but she most certainly has lost 2 or so inches by now
Nik said on 31/May/19
She looked about the same height as Jack P Shepherd on "Coronation Street" this week!
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jan/19
@ Nik - Yes, it originated in the London area in the 19th Century and is thought to stem from the word 'casa', the Italian word for 'house'.

Sue, who turned Lewis's funeral into a farce, with the aid of Patti Clare's Mary and Maureen Lipman's Evelyn, can have 5ft7.75. You could definitely notice about an inch between her and Maureen when they had an amusing chat in the Street, depending on your sense of humour!
Nik said on 9/Jan/19
@ - SandyCowell - That's a very good spot! Yes, carsey (Also spelt kharsi(e)!) is one of many words that can be used to mean "toilet"! I think it is Cockney rhyming slang for "toilet", isn't it? Yes, a c-@rse-y is a useful part of modern life, we'd be snookered with them!

I think that Sue could be near to 5'7" these days!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/19
⭐️ I just noticed that Nik sent a comment to someone who went by the name 'Carsey', meaning toilet! It's also spelt like so:- kharsi(e) and looks not unlike this 🚽.

Carseys are a very useful part of modern everyday life. I'd feel totally crappy without mine!
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/19
Sue's character in 'Coronation Street' has tragically lost her second sweetheart on New Year's Day, the first one being big Alf Roberts, who wasn't just tall, he was large in stature too, and had to be written out because sadly, he died suddenly in real life.

They would never have paired Sue off with, say, Ken Morley or Roy Barraclough, both of whom were MUCH shorter. 'Coronation Street' seems to insist on choosing partners with the man being taller than the woman, I find.

You can see just how tall Sue used to be in the vintage edition, now in the year 1991. She still looks pretty tall now, and she mentioned the other day that she's 78, which is roughly her true age.

As there is just the one box, I will go for 5ft7.75.
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Oct/18
In today's 'Classic Coronation Street', Audrey (Sue) was flirting with a reluctant Jim, played by Charles Lawson, who at that time seemed a convincing 6ft. She wasn't exactly looking up to him either, and he'd come to her home to repair her (bedroom!) TV, so she was probably in comfortable footwear. I really can see her being 5ft7.5/8 back then. I also compared her to Sally, 5ft2, and came to the same conclusion.

Perhaps there should be a box for then and for now. I will put 5ft7.75.
Nik said on 3/Sep/18
@ Carsey - You are a monkey's uncle! Ha ha!

I think that 5'7" is liable for Sue's nowadays height!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jul/18
Blah! Correction Time! 😝

That should have been 'have IT on', and not 'have IN on'!

It would seem I was badly in need of a nap when I wrote that, or halfway through one! 😴
Sandy Cowell said on 10/Jul/18
@ Rob - If I had access to 'Rentaghost', I might be forced to have in on only if I had particular trouble sleeping! 😫 😴
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jul/18
@ Rob - I am not exactly proud to admit that I have vague recollections of that show myself! 😬 👻 😬
Editor Rob
Sometimes when you rewatch a TV or film many many years later it can be a surprise or a letdown.

I think I'll pass on re-watching Rentaghost 😃
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jul/18
Now that we have the opportunity to watch 'Vintage Coronation Street' every weekday, the opportunities to see these older stars in their younger, taller days simply abound!

Just recently, I have been taking a good and critical look at Sue Nicholls here, and she is much the same height (taller even in shoes!) than her man-mountain of a husband in the show, played by the late Brian Mosley. With 5ft2 Sally Webster, she looks positively tall, and I'd say in heels, she has to be around 5ft11.

Sue is a good strong 5ft8, and possibly even more back then. I mean, she is still a tall woman today!
Editor Rob
I remember her mainly from Rentaghost, she seemed tall on that, though I cannot for the life of me remember what the heck anything much about the show 😨
Doom said on 9/May/17
Saw her at my work today. Im 5'3 and she was the exact same height as me. She looks too tiny to be 5'8. Needs a serious downgrade rob
Carsey said on 12/Oct/14
Have stood next to her,maximum is 5ft3"
Carsey said on 11/Oct/14
Saw her in Debenhams Manchester a few years ago and if she is more than 5ft 3 I am a monkey's uncle.

Doesn't seem to have 7 inches on 5'1" Samia Smith in Corrie.
Editor Rob
at near 70 she may have lost a bit of height
Dylan said on 21/May/09
I agree with the height, I doubt she is only 8st 21bs though!
Robert.R said on 19/Jan/07
I doubt very much that she only weighs 8st 2lbs but this page is about height and I would go along with 5'8".
