He has 6’5 proportions for sure

Rob, is a bit over 6ft5 peak a possibility?
Editor Rob
I don't think I'd go over this mark.

His daughter looks to be at least 6ft2

@ haroldgreen - I bet she has trouble finding clothes to fit her. So do I, but for the opposite reason, so I often shop in kids' departments. Anyway - it's cheaper!

Madeline does indeed look in access of 6ft, yes.

@Miss Sandy Cowell
Agreed, She does look like 6’2 or close to 6’3 standing next to 6’5 Will from the photo but that might be the camera angle and the position she stands makes her look taller but she is definitely taller than 6 feet.

@ haroldgreen - Madeline Self looks well in access of 6ft.

Wow. I didn't get this tall of an impression of him.

John Cleese/Hozier sort of range, arguably a strong 6ft5

A lanky man indeed. In his prime may have been pushing 6’6 but given his age 6’5 will likely do. Not sure how posture is taken into account but given his slouching nature he may be taller when stood up straight. Having a Dad who is 6’5 and a similar build I know all too well that when they stand up straight an inch or two can be added.

Rob, is it me or does he look like Nicolas Cage? Except King-sized.
Editor Rob
Wouldn't have said so.

Not a chance. I’m 6-3. I’ve seen him in Highgate several times. He’s 6-3.

Also Rob, I notice that there is a photo where his daughter Madeline was also present with him and she looks tall. She definitely has a tall gene like her father. I would like to hear your thoughts on how tall his daughter looks.

She does look rather tall too.

Very good addition, He does look tall and I can definitely say he does appear 6’5. Maybe I would give him 6’5.25 but I will stick with 6’5 since he is already at his sixties.

Requested him a few years ago...looks every inch of this
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jan/22
Oh, what a brilliant addition, Rob! I used to love watching Will on 'Have I Got News For You?' This guy had me in stitches - he was just SO funny and oftentimes, quite controversial.

Those were back in the Angus Deayton years, of course!


I knew Will was very tall; now I know exactly HOW tall he is!

6ft5. 😁👏

Average men (all races and ages) are NOT as tall as Will thinks they are!
