I find it very interesting that she said "Vernon is 6ft 4in and I'm over 5ft 8in"! It's good that she is so honest with her claims!

I've just come across an interview in 'You' magazine, which comes free with the newspaper The Mail on Sunday. In it, she talks about the tall height of her 14-year-old daughter, whose father is 6ft4 TV presenter Vernon Kay. Being at least 5ft8.5 herself, I think their daughter is destined to be very tall indeed!
5ft8.75 for Tess.

In magazine and newspaper articles Tess's height has always been stated as 5ft9. I spotted that in the first few series of Strictly, so not to tower over the dancers when interviewing them, Tess would sometimes stand there with no shoes on, particularly if she had a longer dress on.

Why don't you put hights in ft an inches
Editor Rob: all heights are listed both in feet/inches and cm, it's right at the top and on every category type page.

I find it difficult to believe she is only 5'8'.5". When you think that Abbey Clancy and Sophie Ellis Bextor who claim to be 5'9 and are supposedly taller than Tess and they in fact don't look as tall . Tess has longer legs than Abbey and Sophie and a more towering presence but is shorter. Something doesn't add up.

Rob, this broad gives the impression of being around six foot !
Editor Rob: she's over an inch shorter than Zoe Ball I would have said.

I've always thought she was about 5'9" (not that 5' 8.5" is that far short of it!). She's taller than almost EVERYONE on TV.

I think she is downgrading her height . I think she is at least 5'9. She looks
noticeably taller than Abbey Clancy and Sophie Ellis Bextor in this photo. I believe there about 5'8 and not their 5'9 listed claim.

In the Daily Mail today she says she is 5ft 8.5.
[Editor Rob: yeah I saw that, been forced to get daily mail this week for free Lego Toys ;)]

Her height is a strange one . On strictly come dancing
WITH 5'10 Zoe Ball she looked 2 inches shorter than Zoe Ball with Tess having a heel advantage.

She always wears heels so looks taller. 5'9'' is correct I guess.

I think she's even taller, she is significantly taller than most of the men on Strictly!

I can well believe she's 5ft9. She has a great figure too.
