I think Robbins would have a full inch on this guy. Vernon looks like a guy who might just dip under 6ft4 after a long day

I disagree with you Arch I think they look similar in height but that's just me

Looks more 6'4.5 to me.

I can't imagine there being much difference between vernon and Tim robbins

Rob, how tall would you say Shakin' Stevens looks beside Kay?

He stands next to him before he plays and after...my guess is he looks 5ft10-11 tops but I don't know for sure if they're on the same level or if Shaky is a step down
Editor Rob: yeah he doesn't look over 5ft 11 and a bit less really...assuming they are level grounded.
James B said on 8/May/16
Looks every bit of 6ft4

Hes a bolton lad like me' seen him loads of times in vic inn in heaton' im 6.2 and he is exact same size. 6.4 my a@@e he was dwarfed by my 6.5 mate. Prob wears lifts. Lots of so called celebs big their height up. See loads in bolton' believe it or not!

Had the pleasure of meeting vernon at a charity party and i myself am 6'4 and looked slightly down at vernon. Lovely guy. Maybe 6'3

Just watched the Family Fortunes episode in which the Redgrave family appear. Zak is the same height as his father but Steve tends to slouch often. When his family first came out Steve stood beside Vernon, stretched up, and was clearly taller by an inch or more. I believe Vernon is about 6'3.5 while Steve can still hit 6'5 when he straightens. At one point Vernon refers to Steve as 'big man'. Not something I think he would say if they were the same height.
wilco said on 15/Nov/14
Most celebrities seem to exaggerate their heights. I have met many as my ex partner is an actress. Two to three inches is not uncommon. At 6'3" I can frequently look right over the heads of many who claim to be 6'2" plus.
chris said on 15/Aug/14
He has just said he is 6ft 4in on 'The One Show'.
John Elpmaxe said on 16/Mar/14
Zak redgrave looks more like 6ft 7.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Mar/14
Redgrave's daughter is 6 ft 2 too!
Arch Stanton said on 16/Mar/14
Rob do you think Steve Redgrave's son looks taller than 6'5" next to Vernon? He hardly dwarfs him as the article says, but he does look noticeably taller. Hardly surprising he's at least 6'5", Steve always towers above everybody and looks near that too.
[Editor Rob: I think being nearer camera is adding a chunk to him]
Arch Stanton said on 16/Mar/14
Dan Osbourne is listed at 6'3" on his modelling profile but it's probably a downgrade for modelling purposes. He looked 6'4"-6'4.5" to me with Vernon accounting for differences in footwear.
anon said on 15/Mar/14
Is Dan Osborne really only 6'3"? He claims to be 6'5" on his Twitter. Don't see why a guy who's that tall already would feel the need to add 2inhces.

Arch Stanton said on 16/Feb/14
Clearly around a legit 6'4". Dan Osbourne looks a legit 6'3" guy and Vernon in shoes looks about 2 inches taller than Dan barefoot.
MD said on 13/Feb/14
You can not be serious with that shot. There is almost nothing you can glean from it.
randomer said on 10/Feb/14
Really doubt he's 6'4..

Guy beside him is Sir Steve Redgrave's son (Zak - 15) who claims to be 6'5, which hardly seems like an exaggeration yet seems to be a lot more than 1inch taller than Kay.
avi said on 7/Jan/14
always seems 6'3 area
Mark P said on 18/May/13
It's clear from the Family Fortunes with Will Greenwood, a genuine 6'4", that Kay is well below this as Greenwood is significantly taller. Perhaps more like 6'2".
Trent said on 23/Jan/13
He claimed something like "almost 6'4" on Family Fortunes in some rerun I was watching.
UK183cm said on 8/Jan/13
Either all the other people i've seen in photos/ videos with Vernon are listed too tall, or Vernon is over 6'4". He gives a very tall impression to me, I need to see him in a picture with another very tall person to judge his height better.
Shaun said on 24/Oct/12
He's shorter than Vernon though. Granted Vernon can look 6'5" on occasion but I doubt Steve is over 6'3".
thetruth said on 20/Oct/12
Jones was on a show with the legend that is the Hoff. They were more or less the same height. I think Jones is probably telling the truth when he says 'I'm 6'4''.'
Shaun said on 15/Oct/12
He looks 6'3" here though:

Proportionally in my opinion he looks somewhere near 190.
Shaun said on 10/Oct/12
Rampage, you claim 182 for Schofield and 192 for Vernon, 10cm is 4 inches. Vernon Kay had almost a full head on Schofield and looked nearer 8 inches taller. Trust me they were on a show together a few years back and remember thinking hang on Vernon must be at least 6'4" if Scofield is even 5 ft 9. Seriously it is impossible for him to only have 10cm on him. Yeah Steve Jones claims 6 ft 4, read in it a magazine like GQ or some music magazine in about 2000. He said about him being an Armani model and being six four. I think 6'2.5"-6'3" looks about right for him, he certainly looks a strong 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/12
Kay is 192-193cm IMO. Rob, could Steve Jones be a weak 6"2?
[Editor Rob: I still wasn't sure on jones, he claims six four,but might be six three ]
tom said on 26/Aug/12
he is,been in bolton dozens of times and seen him about,a tad over me.{6-2'5}
Godred said on 4/Jan/12
Hmmn Theakston might just edge vernon,I don`t see Steve Jones as anything over 6`2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/12
Rob, who'd be taller Vernan Kay or Jamie Theakston?
Also, any height guesses for Steve Jones?
Godred said on 19/Dec/11
Hmmn,might have to rethink this,I just watched Mark Charnock on family fortunes and although it was difficult to see a clear shot and Kay`s posture is better,he looked atleast Kay`s height,maybe taller and he`s down at 6`3
Godred said on 14/Dec/11
Sorry it`s still 6`2 max for Jones for me,maybe 6`3 in shoes.6`4 for Kaye still though to get back on track.
Shaun said on 12/Dec/11
MD, it speaks far more volumes that you patrol about from page to page just to rant on about double posts. On the browser I use it is not possible to add multiple photo links in one post. Anyway you'll post something and see another photo which you missed for comparisons and then post it. What does it matter??? You're really starting to irk me off MD.
MD said on 8/Dec/11
Shaun,

WTF are you doing post five different posts in one day in a single thread? Four of those posts (the photo ones) could have been composed into a single posts. Stop this madness, man. Are you retarded?
MD said on 8/Dec/11
I know this is a page for Vernon, but since everyone's talking about Steve Jones, I have a few observations. If anyone has watched Idol with Ryan Seacrest as host, for such a tall guy, Steve seems very stiff and awkward. Not just his body language, but how he interacts with the contestants, the judges, and the audience. Physically, the guy has everything one would want, but he always seems visibly uncomfortable. The smile seems forced, the banter with the judges it awkward, and even when he tries to comfort the constestants, it always comes across as insincere.

As for his height, not really knowing the guy since he's new to the States, I have a really hard time placing his height because one, all of the contestants (save for Leroy Bell) are short, this season, even the guys, so he towers over everyone. And, lastly, the judges are short. The only thing clear is that he's definitely over 6'0", but beyond that, I have no idea.
Shaun said on 8/Dec/11
What happened to the recent posts?
Godred said on 7/Dec/11
I`ve seen Jones next to too many people to think he`s anything over 6`2.

Hayden with Vladimir Kliitschko both in flattish shoes, he claims to be 6'5". If he is as low as 6'5" David Haye isn't even 6'2"!! Klitschko looks maybe 3 inches taller than Steve Jones in comparison? I'd be surprised if Vladimir was as "low" as 6'5", does look a legit 6'6" to me.

Assuming footwear is level 190cm does look about right don't you think if you flatten down his hair.
Shaun said on 7/Dec/11
Based on what I've seen I actually think 6 ft 3 is more likely for Jones than 6'2". He's not 6'4" as he once claimed, I think he was about an inch shorter than Vernon Kay. I think somewhere around the 190 mark maybe. Notice he always wears flat plimsoll/sneaker type shoes as well.
Shaun said on 7/Dec/11

Mmm see the video and pause around the 3 mark. 5'7" Ellen is barely up to his mouth. And if you compare 5'8" Rob next to legit 6'4" guys he is up to the moustache area. It might actually be possible he is close to the 6'4" mark. Rob can you look at the clip and give an estimate, I think Jones is looking 8-9 inches taller.
[Editor Rob: we know jones claims 6ft 4, but he could be a 6ft 3 guy calling himself in sneakers.]
Godred said on 14/Nov/11
Steve Jones is 6`2 max, might even dip a little under.

Steve Jones claims 6'4", more likely 6'2"-6'2.5".

Just look at the legs and frame. He looks identical in height to Christopher Reeve and David Hasselhoff.
Shaun said on 8/Jul/11
Vernon looks a legit 6'4". Meaning that he can sometimes give a 6'5"-6'6" illusion as many legit barefoot 6'4" ers do. My sister and I estimated him at 6'5" when we first saw him on the Saturday morning kids show.
James said on 27/Jun/11
Okay fair enough 193cm is for vernon
James said on 23/Jun/11
rob do you think 192cm is possible for Vernon considering he looks 3.5 inches shorter than Stephen merchant here

too me that looks a 3.5 or 4 inch difference.
[Editor Rob: it's possible merchant might have a little camera advantage]
James said on 11/Jun/11
actually i think he can look 6'4 or 6'4.5 in photos.

Overall i think he is 6'4 (193cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/11
Kay 192cm
Jones 187cm (maybe 188cm tops)

Yep agree, for Kaye - 6`4 or just under and Jones - 6`2 or just under.

@Mathew - Who Kaye or Jones?

Kaye, I think he's 191 - 193 cm.

@Mathew - Who Kaye or Jones?
Mathew said on 31/May/11
From what I gather he's 6'3.25" - 6'4". In some pics, this guy looks a fair bit like Jay Gordon who happens to be 6'4".
Godred said on 31/May/11
@people - are you serious? - because celebs particuarly models and actors are well known for fudging their heights or atleast giving their heights in shoes.Yes he does look quite tall, but 6`4 is very tall, Kaye is around 6`4 and looks it, Jones is around 6`2 and looks it.
If I said I am seven foot tall,am I seven foot tall?, why would I lie?
Godred said on 23/May/11
@Shaun - I can believe you read it and I can believe he said it, but Jones is certainly not over 6`2.
Shaun said on 21/May/11
Trust me on this 100% I read it in a magazine in about 2000. It talked about Jones being a former Versace model and he claimed to be 6'4". For real.
Godred said on 20/May/11
Jones 187/188.
James said on 2/May/11
i don't think vernon is the full 193cm
Shaun said on 23/Apr/11
Steve Jones aint under 6'2". Looks a strong 6'2" to me but NOT 6'4, that's laughing gas.
Godred said on 25/Mar/11
I buy 6`4 for Kaye - just under 6`2 for Jones (no way in hell is Jones anywhere near 6`4) - two of the most [*** no need to insult them ***].They are tall and pretty I`ll give them ,but I have a problem when anyone describes either as being funny or talented.
James said on 26/Feb/11
okay maybe not 6'5 1/2 but he does still look 6'4.5 (194cm) with footware disadvatnage and 196 if he stood right and had equal footware.
James said on 26/Feb/11
Jenson button could always be 182cm though? Its odd though because with Button Vernon looks 6'5.5 (197cm)...........
filmfan said on 23/Feb/11
Vernon Kay definite 6'4''. Steve Jones close to it I think. He did a robot dance with Neil the tall, lanky guy off the Inbetweeners and looks at least 2 inches taller. It's on youtube.

Vernon Kay is somewhere between 6"3 and 6"4. Shaun, Steve Jones is nowhere near 6"3. He's maybe about 6"2 on a good day. He's around 2 inches shorter than Vernon Kay. Honestly I think he's around 186cm-187cm

Hi, I used to be Kay's neighbour and he told me that he was 192cm. That is just under 6'4".

Vernon kay is huge 6'4" is believeable nothing more nothing less & I thing Steve Jones is a solid 6'2" maximum 6'2.25" for Steve Two towering television presenters. Vernon is no way 6'5" ppl hardly reach 6'2" let alone 6'5" he is a huge guy but not 6'5"

Doug said on 7/Feb/09
Laughable below that somebody below thinks he is only 6 foot flat!! Clueless. In my view it is impossible he is below a legit 6'3" barefoot. He had an inch on David Seaman who was listed as 6'4" for most of his career now 6'3.5" and he is a huge guy. He is ***at least*** 6'4". Reminds me of a lanky kid I was in school with. My sister thought he was 6'5 " or 6'6". I'll admit that he can look taller on TV because of his skinny build but I think this as his barefoot height is accurate. He is obviously 6 inches taller than most people at least. Funny but Steve Jones claims 6'4" too, which he clearly isn't, but then again that guy has a huge ego that needs to supported with a 6'4" claim. Steve Jones is 6'2.5" tops.
Halb said on 29/Jan/09
I have been on holiday with Vern a couple of times years ago, I think we was a shade under 6'4.
George said on 3/Jan/09
I think he is either 6'4 or a very strong 6'3 (like 6'3.75). he towers all the guests on family fortune, and they have referred to him as being very tall multiple times. Probably looks 6'5 because he is skinny.
Lord said on 5/Oct/08
His actual height is 192cm. Will Greenwood (who is a legit 6'4")stood about a centimetre taller than Kay in the latest edition of All Star Family Fortunes. Furthermore the announcer at the beginning of the show introduced Kay as "standing at almost 6'4".

192cm is pretty bang on.

Ithink tall guys are so sexy and vernon kay is def that. 6ft 4in? bring it on!!!

More 6ft4ish. 192cm maybe? for once I agree with James.
Ian said on 17/Aug/08
I've never seen anyone stand taller next to Vernon on TV. He's easily 6f4. I would say 6ft4.5 He could be 6ft5 out of bed height. He looks a good 6inches above the average height.
Kurt said on 28/Jun/08
Saw him in Beaconsfield, Bucks, which is where he lives I think?

I'm 6'3'' and he was slightly taller than me, so 6'4'' is more or less accurate.
daii said on 31/May/08
yeah he is very tall, on his shows he presents he towers over most (hes lanky) by the looks of him id give him a 6'3.

I've seen Vernon Kay in the flesh, and in comparison to my own height of 6ft 4", he is at least 2" shorter than me. In fact, he's about the same height as my brother who is 6ft 2"!
stephen25 said on 9/Apr/07
well i live in uk and i can say he is 6'5 i am 6'4 and he is about an inch taller than me ,maybe he is 6'4 and a half at the least,for the people who say he is only 6-6'2 then you really cant judge height to save your life.

Nice pic,6'4 my a$$,unless Arnie had a late growth spurt,he looks to be in the 188-190cm range
Baz said on 9/Dec/06
I saw family fortunes the uva night and i do agree with Stevo because Vernon Kay did look taller than Seaman, infact he looked about 2 inches taller than him which would make Vernon around 6'6 but maybe Vernon was wearing stacks although Seaman wasn't realy standing up straight

[Editor Rob: Seaman was no more than 6ft 3 in his playing days]
Stevo said on 6/Dec/06
Did nobody see it when David Seaman (6'4) was on Family fortunes, Vernon was at least an inch taller than him. I'd say he's 6'5 on the dot. Ciao x

Vernon Kay is the presenter for the new series of Family Fortunes, and next to most celebs he looks huge - 6'5", 6'6".
Gaz said on 4/Nov/06
I've met Vernon Kay. He's 6'3 or 6'4 definitely. Saw Arnie on a TV interview
recently and he said he's 6'1. Look closely at that shot Vernon is leaning back and still looks about 2 inches taller.
Eye Sea said on 28/Aug/06
He looks shorter than that, but I have never met him so I wouldn't know. From seeing him on TV standing next to others, I would have said 6 foot, but no way 6 foot 5.

Steve Jones is about 6"2
knb said on 10/Apr/06
He's 6ft5. In the UK, where he's on tv a lot, he towers over everyone else. He's 6ft 4 at the very least
SH said on 5/Mar/06
Vernon looks to be tall 6'3'' - 6'4'' . On that picture with Arnold, Vernon is probably wearing flats and Arnold is probably wearing dress shoes (with lifts). I believe Arnold was 6'2'' or slightly more in his youth, so he probably wears lifts quite often as he has lost a few inches. This could explain why they look the same height or Vernon may just be 6'2''.

PS How tall is that other T4 presenter Steve Jones?
TheMan said on 25/Feb/06
I actually do think he is 6,4 the guys massive well height wise. I think the pic with arnie had him on lower ground. But then maybe arnold is infact close to 6,2 if not 6,2 which he keeps claiming.
vern's mate said on 24/Feb/06
When u see him presenting, compared to other celebs i'd agree hes that tall
