He's 171-172 my friend met him and he's a good 3-4 cm smaller than my measured 174 friend

5ft8.5 seems about right for Graham, though I think he was only an inch more at his peak. The beard suits him! It makes him look super-masculine! I wonder if that's the look he's after? 😱

Rob , how tall is Jim Norton? He gets listed 5'7 " , but he looked 5'5 max with Mike Tyson.

Hi Rob is there any chance that Graham Norton could have been a genuine 5"10 in his prime with good posture?
Editor Rob: Joel, it seems hard to believe it.

Bilbo Baggins wouldn't go too much off Madame Tussauds. Few heights in there wrong. Daniel Craig looks around 6'1.

I knew he would claim 5ft10...

People below are mentioning how Johnny Depp and Sylvester Stallone looked about an inch taller than Graham on his show. Well, Depp and Stallone have been known to wear lifts. Graham is not a 'short' guy. I'd say he's closer to 5' 9" than he is to 5' 8". When my 5' 3.5"-to-5' 4" sister had her picture taken beside his waxwork in Madame Tussaud's in London a few years ago, Norton's waxwork stood a good 5 inches taller than her.

I don't think he ever was 5'10, 5'9 range peak maybe.
Greg said on 22/May/16
Norton looked just slightly shorter than Russell Crow and maybe 2 inches shorter than Ryan Gosling in this week's episode, which doesn't compute. Norton is either wearing serious heels or lifts.

He got tiny next to 5'9 Petra Mede (Swedish comedian) while presenting the Eurovision song contest. Ok, she was wearing heels but anyway I think that 5'7 or 5'8 is a good figure for him.
Bishop said on 20/Dec/14
Closer to 5'8".

His taller than Tom Cruise Click Here
but by how much its hard to tell
David said on 20/Dec/12
I think the height is spot on for Graham 5ft 8 and a half. I'm 41 and am 5ft 9 but 12 years ago i was 5ft 11 so how can one explain that, mind you i have got severe scoliosis.
Shaun said on 24/Oct/12
He looks 5 ft 9 Silent, agreed.
Silent d said on 21/Oct/12
He was joking right? Come to think of it he looks 5 foot 9.
Anonymous1 said on 16/Jun/12
@Silent d He's 49 Which in my humble opinion isn't really old enough for any tangible height loss. Not to mention that quote is 12 years old - At age 37 as he would have been in 2000, I highly doubt he would have lost any height from peak unless he had some sort of medical condition, certainly not the 2 inches that the listing would suggest. IMO it's an exaggeration. I'd say 5'9 peak and current listing correct.
Silent d said on 23/Jan/12
I thought he was 5 foot 8. 174cm is about right. He was a little taller than ricky gervais. He was pretty much the same height as johnny depp. 174cm. He said he was shrinking. How old is he? 50's?

Anyone know how tall proffessor Brian Cox is?
short man syndrome said on 2/Feb/11
yeah, he was well above Bieber in height. Listed height is probably oorrect.
Shaun said on 16/Dec/10
Bradi, Norton looked a good 4 inches taller than Bieber. He was a little taller than Efron I thought.This is about right.

Andre was measured at 5'8.5" in sneakers right? So 5'7.5" barefeet? Mmm. The thing is Graham was the exact same height as Andrew Lloyd Webber who is listed at 5'9.25 (176cm). I think he could be 5'9" morning height perhaps. Definately more than a flat 5'8" though. He did look a shade shorter than Jon Bon Jovi I thought although we couldn't see their footwear. He did look 1.5 taller than Moyles who I suspect is more a flat 5'7". 174cm then definately seems reasonable.
[Editor Rob: moyles has changed his height a few times on his show, once he said he was 5ft 7.5, then he went to the doctor's and was 5ft 8!]
Shaun said on 6/Dec/10
5 inches shorter than Russell Brand who obviously has footwear advantage too!!
Shaun said on 6/Dec/10
Also Norton is around 4.5-5 inches shorter than Russell Brand judging by pics I've seen of them. I think 5'9" adds up in just about every pic I've seen of him...
said on 6/Dec/10
Rob, check out the Norton and David Tennant pic. If Tennant is the full 6'1" then Norton is minimum 5'9". Tennant is max 4 inches taller, norton comes up to his eyebrow level . I'm a bit taller than Tennant and if I stand straight against a height chart my eye level is in the 5'10-5'10.5" range Please see it and it light of the others consider an upgrade. He was also about 1.5-2 inches taller than Pete Andre who is 5'7.5". I'd say a solid 5'9". In all honesty I don't think he could give a monkeys about his height, and as Parker says unlike somebody like SImon Cowell is unlikely to inflate their height by two inches. 5'8.75"-5'9" flat is reasonable I think. You can see how he compares to Jon Bon Jovi who always has a footwear advantage over people his real height.
[Editor Rob: i looked at andre meeting him and didn't see 2 inches, but 174 seems closer than 173 was, a solid 5ft 9 I'm not as sure of yet.]
Parker said on 5/Dec/10
He doesn't appear the type of guy who would claim 2 inches over his height. I know a lot of people, especially males, round up even if their closer to their lower one each mark (i.e 5'6.25->5'7), e.g I doubt Simon Cowell is a full 5'9. I agree that Norton is closer to the 5'9 mark than 5'8.
Shaun said on 5/Dec/10
Rob on youtube see Bon Jovi on The Graham Norton Show. He's a whisker shorter than Jon Bon Jovi who I have as a strong 5'9" and generally wears clumpy shoes and Norton looks easily 3 inches taller than 5'5.5"-5'6" Tico Torres. I think an upgrade to 5'8.75" would be reasonable. There's no way he's a flat 5'8" compared to Moyles.
said on 5/Dec/10
Rob google image Norton and Moyles. There's no way that's just half an inch. I know you can't see their footwear but Norton generally wears flat shoes or flat converse type sneakers. I''m convinced Graham Norton is 5'9". He has around 1.5 inches on Chris Moyles which you've listed at 5'7.5" and has always looked 5'9" range to me, 5'8.5" at lowest.
[Editor Rob: yeah he does look like he might be over 173]
Shaun said on 5/Dec/10
Rob I actually think you've hit too low on this one. Graham Norton has always struck me as an average height guy and always looks 5'9" range to me. There is no way that he is the same height as Dermot o Learey. I think 174-175cm is a lot more accurate.
Genny said on 12/Jun/07
Was watching Graham Norton next to Lee Mead on the finding a Joseph programme and wondered how tall both of them were 'cos Lee Mead looks about two inches taller. So is Graham Norton 5' 7''..or 5ft 10 ? 5ft 8 minus shoes, maybe ?

saw him in oxford street acouple of weeks ago hes much bigger the you think hes about 5 11 definitly no shorter
Jimmy said on 12/Apr/07
5-10. Seen him in London a lot. Much bigger than I expected.
Editor Rob said on 2/Jun/06
He gives himself 5ft 10.
William Forrester said on 11/Feb/06
I would say he is pretty damn close to 5'8''
elio said on 18/Dec/05
I remember him interviewing 6'1 3/4" (as listed on here) rutger hauer a couple of years ago on UK tv. There wasn't a great deal between them at the end of the show when they stood next to each other (3-4 inches absolute max). Perhaps Norton is taller than we think? I think his camp, annoyingly whiney image makes us think he is bordering on the short side, when he may be a more average 5'9"?
Craig Hill said on 6/Nov/05
och no, he's aboot 5' 7
