Davina is nowhere near 5'7. There are some early comments below from people who have seen her in the flesh and they all say she is about 5'5. Here is a video below of her standing beside 5'8.5" Amy Willerton and Amy towers here by about 3 inches.
Here she is interviewing 5'7.5" Caprice on CBB .Caprice has to tilt her head to talk to her . She has Davina by a good 2 inches.

Rob look at this video of Holly Willoughby and Davina in the garnier add. How much taller do you think Holly is than Davina?
said on 19/Mar/17
Rob here is Davina with 5'6 Mel C and she is clearly shorter . This proves Davina is 5'6" at best or maybe even 5ft 5.5".
said on 14/Mar/17
Rob check out these photos of Davina with 5'8'5" Sara Cox. Their footwear looks about the same and Cox is at least 2 inches taller than Davina. The most i can see for Davina is 5'6'5 .The only way Davina reaches 5'7 is first thing in the morning.

Rob on the jump she looks like she is struggling with 5'6". 5'8'5 Amy Willerton looks over 2 inches taller than Davina . Also Davina looks only fractionally taller than that Kadeena Cox who is only 5'5.
jinny90 said on 21/Feb/17
Well if Davina is 5'6.5 would that not make Caprice 5'8, because on the jump Caprice looks at least an inch and a half taller than Davina.
said on 17/Feb/17
Ok towering is a bit of an exaggeration but to me it looks like Caprice has Davina by an inch and a half. It dosen't look like that because Davina is standing in front of Caprice but if you compare there shoulder level and the fact that Caprice tilts her head looking down at Davina suggests to me that Caprice is taller than Davina by over an inch . I think a case could be made for Caprice being a solid 5'8" and Davina 5'6.5 . In no way can i see Davina been a solid 5'7 . She looks 5'7 on television but people always look taller on television for some reason.
Editor Rob: certainly I won't rule out the 5ft 6.5 mark...the 5ft 6 mark I don't know, she seems to be over that mark.
said on 16/Feb/17
Rob did you look at the video . 5'8 Caprice towers Davina . She is at least an inch half taller than Davina. I thinks its time for another downgrade for Davina.
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have called it towering, but I've always said you can make a case for 169cm.

She looked over an inch shorter than 5'8 Caprice on the jump. Watch the video below and wind forward to 57 mins to see Caprice and Davina stand side by side . Davina is closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
said on 7/Feb/17
Here is Davina and Holly in the behind scenes garnier advert . Wind video to 3.00. Holly looks well over an inch taller than Davina . If Holly is 5'8. Davina is 5'6.5. Also the other girl Angela Scanlon is 5'6 . She looks the as tall as Davina. Maybe 5'6'5 is the most Davina could be.
said on 19/Jan/17
In this video she is interviewing Caprice who is a questionable 5'8 . Caprice looks to have her by close to 2 inches . She has to tilt her head down a lot to talk to davina . So she is close to two inches taller . Her heels are maybe 0.5 inch more than Davina's . So if Caprice is 5'8" . Davina is 5'6'5".
Caprice is on the jump this series so I will be able to compare their heights better.
Wind forward in the video below to 11.30 mins to compare her height to Davina.
Editor Rob: a weak 5ft 7 range for Davina has always been a reasonable estimate.
said on 3/Jan/17
She presented with 5'10 Phillip Schofield on This Morning, she was in 4inch heels about looked an inch and a half shorter than Schofield . The difference in height was notable between her and Holly in comparison to Schofield as Holly is the same height as Schofield in similar heels .
said on 20/Dec/16
Here she is with 5'7.5 " Sarah Ferguson . Fergie is old now so reckon she has shrunk a bit so she is about 5'7.25. Fergie looks over half inch taller than Davina . So Davina is about 5'6.5 or a solid 5'6. Its clear Davina is 5'6 to 5'7 and is rounding . Either that or she measured herself during . She never deviates from her 5'7 claim though.
BilboBaggins said on 10/Nov/16
Yeah, Davina is definitely about 5' 7". She's never looked short next to the majority of the contestants over the years. In fact, she towers over most of them (whether they're in high heels, or not).
said on 21/Jul/16
Davina is suprisingly tall . She actual is a strong 5'7 . She looks shorter because of her stocky build but when you see her stand next to women of 5'8 like Caprice. Davina looks only marginally shorter . Here is Davina with 5'8 big brother contestant Orlaith McCallister. They are both wearing similar heels and Davina stands as tall as her. If anything i think Davina is underlisted she could be a weak 5'8". What do you think Rob?. Perhaps Davina needs an upgrade.
James B said on 26/Apr/16
a bit above average for a woman and a great body too :-)
said on 5/Jan/16
Rob here is Davina with 5'6 Laura Whitmore . There heels are pretty similar and they look the same height . I think its highly unlikey that Davina is a legitimate 5'7 . She might of measured herself early in the day at 5'6.5 and she is rounding up to the nearest inch.. 5'6 to 5'6.5 is her height . She is above average height but by no means a tall woman.
Here are Whitmores heels

Rob here is a video of Davina with 5'7 Stacy Solomon . If you wide forward towards to about 3 minutes you will see Davina interviewing Stacy. Who do you think is taller?
Editor Rob: wouldn't say much between them, a weak 5ft 7 is still possible for her.
said on 18/Dec/15
Rob here is Davina with 5'7 Ulrika Jonsson . Davina is in higher heels Ulrika has her knees bent but yet Davina is barely taller than Ulrika . Those who have met Davina say she is closer to 5'6 than 5'7 . I think she is 5'6.5" at best.
Editor Rob: I haven't ruled out 169cm for her
said on 25/Nov/15
Rob wind this video to 37 minutes. You will see that Ulrika Jonsson is at least an inch taller than Davina . Davina also has a slight heel advantage. 5'7 for davina looks impossible to me.
said on 22/Nov/15
Rob here is a video of Caprice with Davina . They are both wearing similar heels and Caprice is taller than Davina by at least an inch . Caprice is a solid 5'7 so Davina is 5'6 at most . I think she needs to be downgraded . Wind forward to 11.29 in the video to see.
Editor Rob: I would doubt there is more than half inch or so between them, certainly davina can fall into weak 5ft 7 range.
said on 3/Oct/15
Rob i seriously doubt that Davina is a legitimate 5'7 . I think she is 5'6.5 or 5'6.75 so if she is as tall as Caprice then it's hard to see Caprice been even a legitimate 5'7. Do you think Caprice could even be below 5'7 say 5'6.75
[Editor Rob: there is a chance both of them could be in weak 5ft 7 zone, we know how caprice looked with that other girl who claimed 5ft 8.5 as her height, she looked maybe 5ft 7 at most.]
said on 2/Oct/15
Do you think Davina might actually be taller than Caprice . What height do you think Caprice and Davina are if you were to guess.
[Editor Rob: they might be very close, without seeing footwear or more footage it is hard to really tell between them.]
said on 30/Sep/15
Rob here is a video of Davina and Caprice at the Brit Awards in 2000. How much shorter do you think Davina is than Caprice in this video?.
[Editor Rob: in that clip it is tough, she might be a bit smaller, how much though I couldn't say because I thought Davina was leaning a bit forward at times.]
said on 23/Sep/15
Davina is a good inch shorter than 5'8 dec . She is 5'8 in heels so the
most she could be is 5'6 barefoot and thats generous . You could
make a case for her been below 5'6.
said on 6/Sep/15
rob do you not think 5ft 7 is a bit to tall for davina?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 6.5 is quite possible for her.]
div said on 27/Aug/15
Rob could you add english model Laura Bailey. She is listed at 5'8 which is
said on 16/Jun/15
Here she is with 5'7 Chantelle Houghton .
said on 27/Feb/15
Look at this pic with 5'8 Chris Moyles . Moyles is 5'8 he was measured that by
a doctor . So his height isn't up for debate . She looks at least 2 inches . So
Davina is 5'6 She needs a downgrade.
said on 19/Feb/15
Again here she is with 5'9 Tess Daly she is slouching so Tess looks considerably
taller but if Davina was standing upright. Tess would be at the most 2 inches taller.
said on 19/Feb/15
She is deceptively tall. I think she is a solid 5'7 . She has short legs
and a long body so she gives the impression of being 5'5. Here is a picture of her taken with some models . I reckon the blonde model is about 5'9 and the black model is about 5'8 . Davina is slouching yet she is still nearly as tall the black model . If Davina was standing straight she would be practically as
tall as the black model.
gerry said on 16/Feb/15
She is taller than Dermot O Leary in normal shoes . How tall is Dermot?.
gerry said on 14/Feb/15
She doesn't look a legitimate 5'7" to me. I think she is rounding up she is
geri said on 18/Jan/15
Rob could you put up Lisa Snowdons height please.
germs said on 11/Jan/15
I remember her presenting a show with 6'1 David Tennant . She was in massive heels and still looked 4 inches shorter . I think she is closer to 5'6.
Sean said on 30/Jan/14
Inch taller than expected, always guessed her at 5'6", Big brother is not the same without her, going to watch all the series again
ned said on 17/Oct/13
she looks short on television but is surprisongly tall in real life,for about 15 years she had best bottom on telly but never got much praise for it.she had great bum on tv series "don't try this at home"standing with back to camera in skintight trousers wow
every1ishuge said on 24/Aug/07
I think the twins are noticeably quite tall, about 5'7, yeah Carol is about 5'1-2 maybe and Chanelle about 5'5.
Here are two other ones that I read:
Nikki 4'12 (yes she put down 4'12 on her application form!)
said on 23/Aug/07
I think the twins are about 5'5 to 5'6 and Carol 5'1 to 5'2. On Amy's myspace it says her height is 162cm (5'4) Sam and Amanda are only a little taller and Carol is a bit shorter.
Amy, Sam, Amanda and Chanelle:
Amy and Carol:

Well I did a search there and it turned out I've underestimated some housemates.
Some website I looked at says they were measured in the house as follows:
These could be rounding up slightly since the housemate would likely measure themselves.
It follows that Ziggy must be about 6'0 and Gerry must be hitting 6'2, indeed a tall set of housemates!
every1ishuge said on 23/Aug/07
Anyone know the current heights of the big bro housemates?
My guesses are:
Helen B said on 31/Jul/07
I've stood in front of her and I'm pretty sure she's shorter than 5 7. I'm 5 7 and a half and she was about my height with heals.
duane said on 20/Oct/06
i thought that davina was 5"7.5 and sasika 5"8 and derek 5"7 and macosi 5"7 and kinga 5" 3.7 and vannesa 5"6
Anonymous said on 10/Jul/06
I thought that Ashleen looked tall but when new housemate Jayned entered, i heard her saying how much taller Ashleen looks on tv than in person, and Ashleen said herself how she's really not that tall. Just shows how heights can be deceiving!!!
However i rekon she's still got to be about 5'6? Imogen maybe about 5'4 and yes Nikki is absolutely tiny!!! And yes 6'4 sounds right for Mikey he certainly is tall!!I think your about spot on Big Bro with your guesses for the guys.
Big Bro said on 10/Jul/06
Mikey was once asked his height by another housemate he said he was 6'4 and Glynn said he is an inch shorter at 6'3. From that I would guess Richard to be about 6'0 and Pete 5'7.
Huey said on 10/Jul/06
I'd like to know as well sunbeame. Mikey looks tall prob 6'2", Pete maybe 5'8", Nicky is the shortest about 5'ish. Just my estimates.
sunbeame said on 7/Jul/06
Anyone know any of the heights of the current housemates???

did anyone see jordan on davina? who was taller?
Alicia said on 16/Feb/06
I watched her new chat show 'Davina' last night and she looked the same height as charlotte church both in heeels
[Editor Rob: she was certainly shorter than the tess daly chick...]
liz said on 14/Feb/06
I think Davina is about 5'5" or 5'6" Chantelle's heels are 1 or 2 inches lower than Davinas
TheMan said on 2/Feb/06
Divina is about 5,7 ive read that and heard it many times before.
rose said on 1/Feb/06
did you actually watch the final Davina had high heel boots on and Chantelle had kitten heels! I have no idea about camera angles I was only making a point dude (assuming you are male since you can't judge the height of a heel!)
Anonymous said on 31/Jan/06
first of all the camera anlgle was to crap to judge if chantelle was taller than davina and second their heel size was about the same .
rose said on 29/Jan/06
I watched the final of celeb Big Brother and Davina was wearing boots with a huge 3-4 inch heel and Chantelle (fake celeb winner) who says she is 5'7" was wearing a 1-2 inch kitten heel mule and she was still a good bit taller than Davina how can this be possible if Davina is 5'7"? Also Rula was taller than her, Traci Bingham was a bit shorter in big heels, and Davina was the same hieght as Preston in her high heel boots. . . I'm not sure of their heights so if anyone can help me ou. . .
[Editor Rob: rula is listed on her resume as 5ft 9...she might have lost a cm since her heyday, but bingham beside her, both intrainers I'd say bingham was more 5ft 6]
jonny5 said on 13/Jan/06
Davina is 5ft6 at most jimmy savile i about 5ft5 now at 80 years old i seen and spoke a few times
RLG said on 15/Aug/05
Eugene said he's 6'4" and he then said it in centimeters as well. 193 cm, he said. Which is also 6'4". Craig is then somewhere around 5'11" or 6'0" looking at him next to Eugene, I'd say.
Makosi said without shoes she is 5'6". Kinga said she looked around that and then Makosi confirmed it. I'd also say Kinga was more like 4'10" from looking at her next to Makosi. She really is tiny.
I agree that Anthony is maybe 5'7". He was the same height as Makosi when he was wearing his big-heeled shoes and she was wearing 2 or 3 inch heels on the final night.
[Editor Rob: the daily record described Anthony as 5ft 3. Lol, at the very beginning he came into the house in cowboy boots and I'm sure the voiceover said Anthony was '5ft 10' with a good pair of boots or something like that...yes, looking at that eugene guy he is much taller than the rest]
mimi said on 14/Aug/05
i dont think anthony's 5'10 because when the housemates were entering the house and their audition tapes were showed ant said that his was dark and handsome but not tall and therefore, he tended to wear cowboy boots which have a bit of a heel. 5'10 im sure is not so short that he would have to wear heels! i would say he was about 5'7 or 8 because he looked that way when standing next to davina.
lucy said on 10/Aug/05
Kinga is 5,2 what height is makosi and anthoney and craig and euguen, the all look so tall compared to 5,2 kinga. As kinga entered the big brother davina said that she was only 5,2 belass her.
Orlaith was 5,8
[Editor Rob: I've no idea sorry...all I know was Anthony claimed to be 5ft 10 (on a good day) when they were talking about heights one day...Craig 5ft 11? Eugene 6ft 1? Makosi did say she wore high heels because she didn't want to feel shorter, although she isn't that short really...]
jimbo said on 19/Feb/05
Its hard to know if Davina is 5'7 , I saw her in a photograph with tv presenter gabby logan who is 5'8 and davina was inch taller than logan , but then Isaw another photo of her with gabby logan an vina was an inch shorter . I would say she probably is 5'7 but I always thought she was only about 5'5 bt davina herself say she is 5'7
jimbo said on 17/Feb/05
I thought davina was only 5'5 but she said on Richard and Judy she was 5'7 .
