Rob, why would he claim that 5'10.5 is average height? I'm sure in his days he would be considered tallish at that mark
Editor Rob: yeah 10.5 isn't really average in the 60's.

Ok here's what I think, my boss has just met Cliff in southern Ireland 2 weeks ago and taken a couple of pictures with him standing side by side, the thing is my boss was leaning slightly towards Cliff and equal footwear, and my boss was still around 1.5 inches taller than Cliff, the thing is I am 6'0 tall, a strong 6 footer at 184cm and still 183cm at night and I'm at least 2 inches taller than my boss, does that put cliff in the 5'8 range? I'm confused as people on here are saying Cliff is way taller than what he seems.

Was just looking at a clip from a 1973 morecambe and wise show, on which Cliff was on. He and the comedians appeared to be wearing pretty standard dress shoes. He was noticably taller than Eric Morecombe - my guess would be between 5'10" and 5'11", closer to the latter. Also, I think Eric Morecombe was likely around 5'8", which is surprising since next to Ern he gives the impression of someone about 6' tall.

5ft10.5 peak, Rob?
He's aged very very well. No plastic surgery or anything.
[Editor Rob: yeah I will add his claim which is exactly that...in his prime that mark might have been fair.]

Looks exactly the same height as Paul McCartney in this clip. See 2.48 and forward.

He featured in Thunderbirds so that puts him at about 1ft 10in. LOL

5' 9" at the Savoy in NYC in '81. Nice to see a U.K. legend in concert.

He has always been listed between 5'10 and 5'10.5" yet he has never looked over 5'8" to me.

I have a pic of my grandfather presenting Cliff with an award in 1960 - Cliff would have been 19, going on 20. Both appear to be standing up straight and my 5'10 grandfather looked a little taller. It's feasible that Cliff could have grown just a little more after this I suppose.

Passed him in an airport recently - I'm just under 5'9 and he was on par or shorter - definitely
