Toyah Wilcox's Height
5ft 1 (154.9 cm)
English Singer and actress from Quadrophenia. She said in The Daily Mirror "It irritates me that I'm so incredibly short. I think I'm 5ft, but it depends which leg I stand on. If I haven't got my rise in my shoe, I have to stand on tiptoe on the left leg. There's almost two inches difference"
. In 2011 she mentioned her weight and height again: "I'm exactly the same weight -- just under 8st -- as I was in the Eighties, but I look bigger because I've shrunk an inch in height -- I'm now 5ft 1in."
In this photo she had at about 2 inches more footwear than me.

@ Nik - Toyah looks rather small in the movie 'Quadrophenia', even though the cast is a fairly short one, causing me to think that singer Sting was around 6ft1!

She is not even close to being incredibly short.

What a coincidence! I have just requested Toyah's husband Robert Fripp, guitarist with progressive rock group King Crimson and then up pops Toyah as a Random Celeb!
She was almost certainly 5ft1 in her 'Quadrophenia' days but now is doubtless below 5ft. She should really have two boxes by now....
Today Toyah can have 4ft11.5.

Has anyone heard the LP 'Court of the Crimson King'? What a powerful piece of music!

Oh yes! I remember Toyah as 'Monkey' from the brilliant film.'Quadrophenia', which I saw at the pictures in 1980. In fact, I used to play The Who's 'Quadrophenia' when I was gardening! It turned the chore into something quite, quite groovy!
Toyah, who's a very interesting lady, and married to King Crimson's Robert Fripp, can have 5ft1. 😉

not a height comment, just to say she still looks great!
I think she was 49-50 the time I met her and I'd agree...

Found out the other day she was married to Robert Fripp. Fripp has been part of G3 with Satriani and Vai of course.

She still looks good.

I still have a fans book which states she is 4`10". This is probably as a result of having a childhood disability which forced her to wear leg calipers.

She has always been described as 4ft 11 in newspaper articals dating back to the 80's.

I've seen her in Pershore where I go to college, she lives next to the bank there. 5ft is about right for sure. I always thought she was taller. She did have on heels when I saw her though.

How much of a footwarew advantage do you think she had Rob? Looks closer to 5'1 in the pic.
[Editor Rob: not more than 1.5 inches, although her quote about one leg being shorter, I never noticed longer heel or anything. I was standing looser than I normally do, with my neck a little down.]

[Editor Rob: Yeah she's lovely, quite chatty. I was joking with her about how cold she looked in one of her videos and about the song where she was getting wheeled along by a horse - though she insisted it was a pony.]
