Jonathan Ross Height is 6ft 1in (185 cm)

Comment on the Height of Jonathan Ross



Johno said on 29/Jan/16
With Carl Froch who Rob has at 6'0, who you can argue looks 5'11.75 was virtually the same height as Ross in the face-off, i can give 0.5 inches to Ross just to clear any doubt therefore, Ross appears 6'0.25-6'0.5 with Froch.
Rory said on 13/Jan/16
Yes shorter than Ronaldo, however his posture was terrible, his posture when they shook hands was what id expect from a 75 yr old. Actually, his shoulder level, for what its worth was higher than Ronaldos and I think a 30 yr old Ross with strong posture would measure a few mms more than Ronaldo.
Al said on 12/Jan/16
Clearly shorter than Ronaldo Rob, so 6'1 is out of the question. 6 foot at best.
James B said on 9/Jan/16
6'1 with an obnoxious personality
Rory said on 14/Nov/15
On his show with Tennant and Ronaldo he looked just a solid 6ft next to them...but his posture looked poor to say the least, i don't know if he's naturally got a slight stoop, or if its a bad habit hes got into as hes aged. Assuming its just a habit then i think stood at his tallest in the 80s 186cm is possible, but hes not an easy person to judge can look as low as a weak 6 ft and as high as a solid 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
So, was he actually originally at a fraction over 6ft2 Rob?
Editor Rob: in 2004 he could have been 2.25 I believe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
[Editor Rob: I am pretty sure mid 90's I read him being described 6ft 3...seriously! I thought he was a strong 6ft 2 to begin with]

Ring any bells, Rob?
Editor Rob: yes to begin with, then he said 6ft 1.5 with des lynam I remember.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Nov/15
Rob, did he start out at 6ft2?
Editor Rob: possibly for a short while until his 6ft 1.5 quote was found
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/15
How tall do you think he'd measure out of bed?
[Editor Rob: he could be almost 6ft 2 range. He's at an age he might no be shipping a few mm's.]
yankee mike said on 1/Sep/15
i think back in his prime Mr. Ross really did reach the 6' 1˝" mark even a full 187 cm..He's a genuinly tall man.
hal said on 7/Jul/15
Wow, me and him are the same height, have the same birthday, and the same speech impediment. Love this guy.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 21/Jun/15
5'11", 180cm.
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure he can be 5ft 11 when he was doing a 'face to face' with carl froch who is close to being bang on 6ft and looked comfortably at least an inch taller.]
joejoe said on 2/Feb/15
he is a clear 6'1. iI am always measured at 1m85 sometime 1'86 and when i met Ross he seemed pretty much my height with terrible posture.
jordydecke said on 20/Dec/14
I didn't see the difference in shoes but standing next to David Walliams (who according to this site is 6'2.5) Ross looked 2 inches shorter (at least).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/14
He could look 6ft1-2 range back in the 90's. But with an ego that big, I'm surprised he didn't claim 6ft3
Rhonda said on 8/Dec/14
He is smaller than 6ft1, Miranda Hart has flats on and he has shoes and they are the same height, subtract his shoes advantage he is about 6ft
Fog181 said on 6/Dec/14
Stood face to face with 6ft Carl Froch and looked an inch taller. 6'1 is good for Ross.
mike said on 11/Nov/14

Yankee mike said on 27/Oct/14
watch this jonathan stands face to face with a legit 187.5 cm andy murray, they almost seem ideantical..i think Ross may need an upgrade back to 6' 1˝", would you agree with that rob?
[Editor Rob: I think he can look generally in the 6ft 1 range, but not sure he looked quite 'near enough' Murray's height]

I think after watching the stare down he edged out Froch a little bit, but I'm not sure if it was by a full inch.

Yeah, 6'0" - 6'1/2" for me.

Yeah, at his peak.

solid 185cm guy
Natasha said on 5/Feb/14
I think 6'1.5" is fair
Lenad is sexy said on 30/Jan/14
this downgrade has been on the cards for a while. Judging by what Ive seen in videos I can buy 186cm, but 187?? I doubt it
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 27/Jan/14
Jacky

That's good for you. It's got nothing to do with complexes. Should I believe you or the facts presented by Rob? In a standing tall stare down with 6'0" Carl Froch in the same footwear, whom Rob has a photo with, he was exactly the height. I'm sorry, but the evidence just doesn't support you. Either you're friend is only 6'1", you're completely useless at gauging height, you're a liar, or a combination of the three. Take your pick, those are your only options.
Jacky said on 26/Jan/14
I get people have a complex but why do people always want to downgrade all the time. I've met Jonathan with my friend who's a legit 6'3 dude (basketball player) and he was only maybe just over an inch taller than Jonathan. Both had similar dress shoes as well.

I believe Ross' 6'1.5 claim
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 21/Jan/14
Getting there. 1.84 m max height.
Paul177 said on 19/Jan/14
Wow. I gave up on this one, but you finally amended it. That said, I think 184 cm at night would be bang on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Dec/13
He claimed 6ft2 aswell on one occasion
Lenad is sexy said on 29/Dec/13
I'd say 6ft1 as exactly
avi said on 28/Dec/13
Looked a fraction taller than Beckham. So probably a strong 6'0
Rob I think you should drop him to 6'0.5...
Lenad is sexy said on 27/Dec/13
im beginning to have doubts about ross being taller than 186cm considering how short he looked next to will ferrell
johnmcc said on 26/Dec/13
Yeah its like people are saying he is and was no more than a 184cm guy. He was noticeably shorter than Pierce Brosnan years ago on his show and i believe Brosnan was a legit 187 guy at peak.
Pleb said on 29/Nov/13
Looks around 6ft0.5/184cm, has an easy inch over Becks.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/13
I doubt he's lost height. Probably was always around 185-186cm. I'm not sure he's just 184cm, although he can look it quite often.
James said on 19/Nov/13
Does look more 184 than 187 although he has poor posture alot of the time. Peak height probably 187 but he definetly isn't that tall anymore.
Martin said on 29/Oct/13
He is not 6'1.5", more like 6 flat or a little over...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/13
Might be 186cm, but not more.
Brammo183 said on 31/Aug/13
Needs a downgrade. im 183-184 and met him today at the pleasure beach in Blackpool, he was exactly the same height as me and he had a slight footwear advantage. He's a Maximum of 184.5.
cole said on 9/Aug/13
6'1.5 in shoes maybe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/13
I'm not convinced that Ross is quite this tall in the middle of the day if measured.
He can look 6ft1.5 at times but he can also look 6ft0.5. Chances are he's inbetween them.

But there is no way this guy is 5ft11.5
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 19/Jun/13
tall person

In no scenario has he ever looked 6'4". He's is maximum 6'1/2" (1.84 m). This listing is stubborn.
tall person said on 18/Jun/13
He looks like he is 6'4" when he is on his show
cole said on 6/Jun/13
He can't be this tall. Jay Z is probably about 186-187 cm and Ross was at least 2 cm shorter with bigger footwear, so he's a 183-184 cm guy. Craig Ferguson I believe is a slightly taller guy, 186 cm or so.
johno said on 15/Apr/13
About same height as carl froch. Carl looks like a weak 6'0 thus giving ross a height of 6'0.5 is pretty much his max.

Carl froch 5'11.75 - 6'0
Jonathon ross 6'0.5 ( most likely his max height )
5ft10guy said on 13/Apr/13
He isnt this height a 5ft11.5 man lets say 6ft(justin timberlake) is equal to his height. Lets say for John sake6ft0.5 is more accurate it doesnt make sense that justin timberlake is exactly the same height c'mon
Arch Stanton said on 7/Apr/13
Yeah, he aint under 6'1" Lenad and looks more 6'1.5" than 6'0.5" compared to most.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 7/Apr/13
Looked half an inch taller than 6'0" Carl Froch at an absolute maximum in his show yesterday. Rob, check it out, excellent for estimating. The man isn't 6'1 1/2". I know you must've used him as a reference for many people but it's really time for a downgrade.
miko said on 7/Apr/13
Just watched him staredown with Carl Froch on his show, and Ross wasn't any taller. Rob has Froch listed at 6'0. No way on this earth is there 1.5' between those two.
lenad is sexy said on 29/Mar/13
he was pretty much the same height as Will Smith and Jim Carrey who i believe are strong 6'1. Ross is a solid 6'1. The 6'0 max claims are bunk
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/13
He actually looks a bit shorter than Brand to me Silent D even accounting for Brand's heels. Recently Brand had on relatively normal sized boots and he still looked near an inch taller than Ross. He always looks 6'1" range, but next to Brand and Justin Timberlake recently I do think 186cm might be what he is today but he's only 52, I doubt he's lost any height yet.
Raph said on 11/Mar/13
Took a while for me to check back here for responses, it all makes perfect sense to me and certainly settled the argument that originally brought me here. More power to you, keep doing what you do best.
Silent d said on 13/Feb/13
He was pretty much the same height as 187cm Russell brand. 6 foot is a weird estimate for him since he made daniel radcliffe look like a little boy ad he still had two inches on beckhan who is close to 6 foot. 187cm.

Hello. Stumbled on this page, do not mean to be rude at all but im very curious, how did you all end up being so interested in celebrity heights? Is this a full fledged hobby for some or what? Thanks x

For Rob its a money maker. For me and several others on here its a source of entertainment and we enjoy contributing to the site. Unfortunately many clearly have serious height issues and frequently troll the site attacking Rob for listing celebs 1-2 inches taller than apparently are and warring with fellow users over the matter of a cm.
[Editor Rob: yeah it's a bit of entertainment for myself, aswell as a job so to speak. I try to keep the site running and height is of interest to many people including myself.]

He looks a very solid 6'4 in that pic with Steve jones
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/12

I think Steve Jones is around 6'3" and Vernon barely looks taller here!
Arch Stanton said on 27/Dec/12
I think 6'4" is about right but he can definitely look taller than that on occasion.
James said on 26/Dec/12
Rob is 6'4.5 possible for Vernon?

I guess 6'1 (185cm) is possible too for johnathan
[Editor Rob: i think vernon is just 6ft 4]
Arch Stanton said on 23/Dec/12
Dunno, Vernon looks a legit 6'4" but he can definitely look 6'5"-6'6" at times.

UK183cm says on 21/Dec/12
Seeing Jonathan standing near vernon kay on tv earlier, (Text Santa program) I was surprised actually how much shorter he was. The difference really looked 4 inches at least, certainly more than 2.5 inches as this listing would suggest. I think he has got to be somewhere in region of 184. Maybe Vernon Kay is taller than 6'4" too? Who knows. I imagine Ross would look a similar height to David Tennant in a photo with Rob.

Vernon Kay made Philip Scofield look 5 ft 9 and him look 6 ft 5!! Easily 8 inches on Schofield yet Schofield is apparently 5 ft 11 and Vernon 6'4"!!
Frankie said on 22/Dec/12
A friend of mine has met Jonathan Ross and has taken a picture with him. i have also walked past him in Hampstead, London. He was pretty much my height and I am a strong 5'11. My friend is 5'10 and Jonathan was definitely not 3.5 inches taller, he didn't even look a full 2 inches taller, but he doesn't have the greatest of postures. I guarantee you, Jonathan is 6ft maximum. I think his listing, and all chat show hosts should be more accurately listed, as we then gauge and compare all the subsequent guests height to them!!! The more accurately we list the hosts like these, the closer we'll be to the truth than to comparing them to other celebs!!

am I missing something, Jon Ross towered over David Beckham, so if DB is really 5Ft 10/11 then JR must be over 6 ft?

Didn't tower him at all. Looked about 2 inches taller.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/12
He's shorter than Paddy McGuiness who is listed 185cm but looks 6ft2?
Greenbolt says on 27/Sep/12
The logic everyone is using here is incredibly fallacious; it's the same logic that everyone applies when judging other celebrities' heights as well: "Well, see, Jay Z is 6'2'' and Jonathan Ross only looks a half inch shorter."

Because Jay Z actually LOOKS very close to 6'2", at least 6 inches on Kanye West and edged out Ross. We are all guessing here but they're educated guesses. Yes, Ross has looked 6'0.5" on occasion with The Rock, Clive Owen, Hugh Jackman and Willis and is not impossible, but having seen him next to hundreds of people on his show he almost always appears 6'1" range. most cleebs have photos or videos where they're height can appear to fluctuate 1 inch either way. Funny how people are always drawn to the very shortest theyve looked and then be certain they are that short. Go with the majority, and Ross almost always looks a solid 6'1".
Arch Stanton said on 14/Dec/12
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 12/Dec/12
I find this Copnovelist195's posts very amusing, but there's no way he's 6'2" range. 6' flat at the absolute MAX for Ross, Johno proved this.

Anything under 6 ft 1 is too low, trust me I've seen practically every episode of the J. R. show and have seen how he compares over the years. He's a solid 6'1". In the recent Ali G Savile sketch at the comedy awards Ross look 5-6 inches taller than Ben Kingsley and 1-2 inches shorter than Sacha Baron Cohen. You could argue 6 ft 1 185 or 186cm but I'm pretty sure he's not below this. i think this is genuine and see no reason why he'd lie about it. Its not as if he's claiming 6 ft 2.

I guess he can look 184cm next too some celebs but I think he's more 6'1
Copnovelist195 said on 9/Nov/12
I once saw him step out of a brownish pink Ford Thunderbird (not the classic one) and walk into his big Georgean house on the borders of Hampstead and Golders Green. He looked at me as if I was about to burgle his house. I thought: vulgar car, vulgar man, but look what kind of house being vulgar can do for you. I would put him at 6ft2, so the above quoted height is accurate.
Chameleon said on 30/Oct/12
Indeed he didnt even look 6' with Lineker lol, strange really.
James said on 29/Oct/12
6ft1 (185cm)
Frankie said on 26/Oct/12
He doesn't ever really look as tall as 6ft 1.5 with any guests at all!!! Saw Tom Hardy's interview who was in trainers, only around 2-2.5 inches different between them - definitely not 4.5 inches!!!
I think there is no way he is 6ft 1.5 - maximum 6ft nowadays - he's getting older, bit of a slouch and he's insecure - ofcourse he would claim 6ft 1.5 - that was probably 15 years ago, in shoes with rounding up!!! Please change - otherwise everyone that's been on his show need to be pushed up and Hardy would be 5ft 11 and we know thats not the case!!!
Silent D said on 25/Oct/12
How could he be so much taller than david beckham and daniel radcliffe? Someone said he's same height as 192cm liam neeson. 187cm.
themotorbikeman said on 20/Oct/12
Is the same height as Bradley Cooper on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' And he's listed at 6ft 0.5 inches on this site. Some people say Cooper is 6ft, and Jonathan Ross seems 6ft with other stars on his show. In regards to the comment below about Paddy McGuinness being 185cm. He doesn't look this next to Phillip Schofield, unless of course Phillip is taller than his listed height on this site.
Steve said on 11/Oct/12
I actually stood next to Johnathan Ross on a train around 20 years ago. I'm a shade under 5'10" and JR wasn't that much taller than me. An inch or two at best, I'd say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
He's shorter than Paddy McGuiness who is listed 185cm but looks 6ft2?
Greenbolt said on 27/Sep/12
The logic everyone is using here is incredibly fallacious; it's the same logic that everyone applies when judging other celebrities' heights as well: "Well, see, Jay Z is 6'2'' and Jonathan Ross only looks a half inch shorter." But how do you know Jay Z is 6'2''? The response will be something like "Oh, because he stood next to David Duchnovy who is 6'0'' and Jay Z had two inches on him." And this process based on unproven assumptions goes on and on with each person's supposed height being based on the supposed height of someone else.

The only way to know how tall any of these people are is if Rob took a photo with them since we know exactly how tall Rob is. Or if they stood next to someone who took a photo with Rob.

Anyway, just from watching the show, I'd estimate Jonathan Ross' height at 5'11''. Everyone seems to be thinking he's taller than that, but 5'11'' actually isn't a stretch at all when you consider that the world is filled with people who claim two inches taller than they really are.
Bojan said on 22/Sep/12
He is definetely 6ft max! Watch the show with David cameron, he is an inch shorter than 6ft 1 tall Prime Minister. If he is really 6ft 1.5in, he would claim 6ft 2 or even 6ft 3.
Tom said on 16/Sep/12
Not sure if anyone saw the Jonathan Ross show friday, but he looked the exact same height as 6'4 Liam Neeson, very odd.
5ft10guy(Not Growing) said on 13/Sep/12
6'0.5 sounds good.
johno said on 31/Aug/12
ps, he wasn't wearing any funny shoes, just normal sandels/casual flats so his height looked relatively lower ...
johno said on 31/Aug/12
Saw him on alan carr's summertime and he was only a few inches taller then the 5'9 alan carr. So i restate, about 6'0
GUK said on 25/Aug/12
He was slightly taller than Jenson Button on his show. Given he's also smaller than genuine 6ft 1 Tim Henman, I think 6ft 1.5 is too much for Ross. I think he's just over 6ft barefoot, 6ft 1.5 in shoes no doubt
Vegas said on 12/Aug/12
i didn't think smith was taller than ross, jay z for sure was and brand without the footwear advantage probably wouldn't be taller either Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/12
I don't think he's any taller than 6ft1(185cm). Guys like Will Smith, Jay-Z, Russel Brand and Samuel L. Jackson edge him out with ease. He usually brings up the subject of height when he has a guest that is taller than him. He's obviously quite insecure...

But I don't see why he should be. At 6ft1 he's a decent height and would be easily over that mark in the morning. In shoes he'd be a good 6ft2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/12
David Cameron is 184cm. He was roughly the same as Barack Obama.
Maybe a tad shorter. Beckham is at least 5ft11 but not quite 6ft.
As for Ross. A typical 6ft1 guy that claims his morning height.
anon182UK said on 3/Aug/12
I just saw jonathan ross with david beckham on his chat show, looked a fair bit taller i would say around 2 inches. And recently i saw Beckham standing beside David Cameron and they looked the same height. so I think Ross is as listed, and Cameron and Beckham are both 5'11.5 - 6'0
ANDREA[ITA] said on 24/Jul/12
He always looks tall! 6'1.5 is a good guess!
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 14/Feb/12
He was the same height as 6'1/4" Denzel Washington on The Jonathan Ross Show this Saturday. One again, 6'1/2" is a very safe estimate for Ross. Sorry to keep 'banging on' about it but I'm just trying to put as much evidence forward as possible and we seem to use this man as a reference which isn't a good idea at the moment. By the way, I don't dislike Ross, I'm a big fan.
johno said on 11/Feb/12
- Just saw the interview between tom hardy and jonathon ross. Hardy a cool, down to earth guy but seemed very anxious and seems to have some issues and the interview seemed very edgy anyhow, got a good look of the height difference between him and ross and i would say he was a max 2.5 inches shorter then ross.

Hardy 5'9 - 5'9.5
ross 6'0 ( seemed in all honesty around 5'11.5 max with hardy, do i dare say, even lower)
Godred said on 10/Feb/12
I don`t think he`s over 185.

Ross is the kind of person who, if he were 6'1 1/2", would claim a solid 6'2".
josie said on 6/Feb/12
am I missing something, Jon Ross towered over David Beckham, so if DB is really 5Ft 10/11 then JR must be over 6 ft?
Tommy said on 5/Feb/12
For those saying he gave away an inch to Jay-z: true, though look: Jay-z's in very chunky-looking trainers, whereas Ross is in dress shoes giving him only an inch or so, so Jay-z probably had him out on footwear by half an inch. Jay-Z has claimed 6'2 himself, and I wouldn't rule that out for him. Ross did look to have a solid inch and a half on 6-foot-described Phil Jupitus when they stood next to each other on Buzzcocks some years ago. I think John did peak at 6'1.5; he is possibly still that, perhaps having dropped some small fraction as he is in his 50s.
Chameleon said on 2/Feb/12
He stands straight with Cohen whose height we know is legit and looks noway near 187cm, same with Lineker and Paddy whose height we also know. I just cant see him at 6'1 let alone 187cm. Its just weird..
Chameleon said on 2/Feb/12
Rob how come he keeps looking different heights all the time, he looks shorter next to some people he shouldnt be, like Cohen and Lineker and more. and other times does look 185 range, never 187 though. Hes confusin?!
[Editor Rob: maybe as he's now early 50's his posture at times can make him look barely 6ft 1.]
johno said on 1/Feb/12
themotorbikeman says on 29/Jan/12
Looks 6ft to me, Pady McGuiness was the same height as someone on take me out who said he was 6ft, plus the 6 footer was barefoot for one of the rounds and looked marginely shorter than Pady in shoes ( so both barefoot i would say would be the same height). And Pady looks the same height as Jonathan Ross on 'Friday night with Jonathan Ross' So i'd say 6ft possibly 6ft 0.5 for Jonathan.

Paddy edged ross in the interview two weeks back.

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 1/Feb/12
Chameleon I agree a 6'0" listing for Ross would be acceptable, although he did look 180 flat next to 175cm Lineker. But no way 187cm, Silent d you are one funny dude. Better chance he's 178 than 187.

6'0"/183cm at the absolute MAX for Ross. I'm still convinced 180 flat is closer to the truth.

Yeah, Rob, how do you explain the small gap between him and lineker? Ross at 187 is not possible as he also looked noway near that height with Cohen as proven by Vegas.
[Editor Rob: I'm sure in some situations he can look 6ft range. It doesn't mean he was that height though.]

Chameleon I agree a 6'0" listing for Ross would be acceptable, although he did look 180 flat next to 175cm Lineker. But no way 187cm, Silent d you are one funny dude. Better chance he's 178 than 187.

6'0"/183cm at the absolute MAX for Ross. I'm still convinced 180 flat is closer to the truth.
Chameleon said on 31/Jan/12
Yep. hes 6 feet max.
Silent d said on 29/Jan/12
Clearly 187cm. No downgrade. He absolutely towered daniel radcliffe by 22cm. No way he is 180cm. That will make daniel 158cm. People are soo funny. 187cm.

Looks 6ft to me, Pady McGuiness was the same height as someone on take me out who said he was 6ft, plus the 6 footer was barefoot for one of the rounds and looked marginely shorter than Pady in shoes ( so both barefoot i would say would be the same height). And Pady looks the same height as Jonathan Ross on 'Friday night with Jonathan Ross' So i'd say 6ft possibly 6ft 0.5 for Jonathan.

Well, I've actually been bumped into by Jonathon Ross in the street. He was chatting to someone with his back turned to me, said "I'll see you anon" to the guy, then turned round sharply and clattered into me. My head hit his chest. I'm 5ft 9. He looked massive to me as I looked up. I'd say he's 6ft 4 in his shoes. Rude sod never even apologised, just went "Oops" and carried on....

On his interview with Pete Doherty (who is 6ft 2). Doherty towers above Ross, so i would say he's 5'10 - 6ft.
g2da3 said on 4/Jul/07
he is not 6'1.5 i meet him yesterday my friend i was with is 6'2 Jonathan was WAY taller then my friend
Anonymous said on 22/May/07
Ross was slightly taller than philip Scohfield who does look a legit 5'11 who appeared on his show recently. Ross was about an inch taller, hence he is most probably 6' barefoot and 6'1.5 in shoes.

When Travolta first walked through the door to shake hands with Ross, there honestly looked to be a 1.5" difference in Travolta's favour

[Editor Rob: the wee platform thing he has guests standing on to wave?]
Vegas said on 3/Apr/07
Click Here Travolta and Ross from friday night. Chris; Ross is the tall guy with Travolta and Ricky Gervais is the small guy. How you see Travolta being 1.5" taller than Ross I don't honestly know.
Anonymous said on 1/Apr/07
Travolta was about 1.5 - 2 inches shorter than Ross, Also Travolta had really big heels on his shoes. Did anyone else notice them?
chris said on 31/Mar/07
if hes 6'1.5" travoltas a solid 6'3

[Editor Rob: huh, travolta was shorter and had an easy 1/2 inch heel advantage]

Ross says he is tall when trying to persuade the Rock he can be a Wrestler.

iris said on 16/Jan/07
He couldn´t be 6´1, I saw an interview on his show where his guest is Sacha Baron Cohen (as Borat of course!) and there is a moment in which both of them stand up (so Jonathan can touch Borat´s "cramm"!) and they seem both exactly the same height!! Therefore he must at least 1.90mts or 6´3... (Baron Cohen is above 1,90 for sure)
Mr Mayfair said on 10/Jan/07
Saw him in Selfridges during last summer, he maybe six foot but certainly no taller (5.11 & 1/2?). Also only about 13 or 13 & 1/2 stone, looks much bigger on the screen - just like everyone else!
Viper said on 23/Dec/06
I agree that it seems like Ross has a height complex, even at his tall height.
6'2'' JK said on 22/Dec/06
Rossy is obsessed with height, anyway he was same height as Pee Doherty on friday night with Jonathan Ross.
Anonymous said on 1/Oct/06
Ross looked about 2 inches taller than the 5'10 (some say 5'9 or shorter) Adam Sandler on his show last friday. Ross is probably 6' barefoot and 6'1.5 in shoes.
Sid said on 17/Aug/06
He was interviewing ant and dec couple weeks ago and he asked dec how tall he was and he asked back well how tall are you he sed "six foot one and a half" and dec stood next to him and said well im 5-6 and a half, "the half's important" and dec was saying how freakishly tall ross was when standing side by sidde.

This guy has a height complex.
J-Dog said on 31/May/06
How often does he mention his height, damn!
Mikex said on 1/Apr/06
Ross is a tall guy but not massive. He looks 6' 1.5''. As he says this is his height I see no reason to doubt this.
newjon said on 31/Mar/06
sorry, i meant dec said he was 5ft6.5, not ant
newjon said on 31/Mar/06
today when he interview ant and dec, he stated clearly he was 6ft1.5, He compared himsef with ant who claimed he was 5ft6.5 . Thing is though there only seemed to be about 5inches max between them!
Fuzz said on 22/Jan/06
He said on his radio show yesterday that he is 6'2, but he wears big shoes. So I'd say that around 6'1 1/2 barefoot is about right.
andyf said on 2/Dec/05
I've always been curious about Ross's height. But then I am obsessed with height! He is deffo between 6'1 and 6'2.5 tho' to me. I do remember Paul Ross saying he was 5'11 in Fit Club, and I also remember him discussing him on Sue and Mel's "Light Lunch" where he bemoaned the fact that Jonathan was younger than him, better looking than him, richer than him and taller than him!

But does anyone remember this--Evander Holyfield towering over Jonathan during the comedy awards show (either 1998, 1999, 2000 or 2001)? Odd, and how come? Maybe Evander was wearing lifts?
TheMan said on 23/Oct/05
Im actually going to change my mind on ross and accept the fact that he probably is 6,1 1.5 i saw the programme on a rerun and accept that he must be that height can't see why he would lie about he's exact height. Although lynam seemed to have deffently of shrunk he seemed about 2 inches shorter than ross. Indicating with age height loss is clear i personally don't think lynam is 6.1 1,5 anymore he's deffenlty only about 6,0 now.

[Editor Rob: when they first met I thought they looked nearly same size...]
TheMan said on 22/Oct/05
He probably wishes he was 6,1 and 1.5 more like 6,0 tops. Sorry ross lol.
CelebHeights Editor said on 22/Oct/05
Yesterday again he mentioned height on his show. When Des Lynam said he was 6ft 1.5, Ross said he was 6ft 1.5.
TheMan said on 17/Oct/05
Yeah thats what ive been thinking tubbs. He wasnt as tall IMO he simply wears bigger shoes. It's the same story as with mariah carey didnt look as tall as like when she first started now poeple think shes massive but fact is shes not as tall as poeple make out IMO just that she wears massive heals. However Ross is still tall just not gigantic like he seems now. IMO He's no more than 6,1 at best. But in the old days he seemed no more than 6,0 to me.
Tubbs said on 17/Oct/05
I've also noticed that the last 5 years or so Ross has looked a lot taller, and that all of a sudden he starting mentioning peoples heights, and asking guests on his chat show how tall they are. I never remember him being a 6'2 guy in the 90's, which is what he looks like know....Has he been borrowing Sly's shoes? Any ideas people?

[Editor Rob: I am pretty sure mid 90's I read him being described 6ft 3...seriously! I thought he was a strong 6ft 2 to begin with]
The Man said on 29/Aug/05
Oh just found some new evidence proving ross is deffently 6,0 see youre picture when ross is with penny and tim henman. Well Henman is 6,1 know that from he's tennis records look at their trainers. Ross is wearing chunky ones whilst henman is slouching abit losing about a cm and 1/2 maybe and wearing flat shoes or deffently lower shoes and he's still clearly over ross whos got glasses on aswell so you can't tell he's eyes are lower down. So ross has got to be 6,0 at best. But he on he's chat show is 6,3 simply because he's wearing massive massive shoes. I wouldent be surprised if he was as much as 6,4 he deffently wears some special made shoes maybe risers. He almost deffently thinks about he's height aswell. And on the show he always asks people their heights.
TheMan said on 29/Aug/05
Actually youre right. Ive noticed in very large familys like say someone whos had five boys for example 4 of them were 5,8 to 5,10 or something. And then there was one who had some ridiclous height that doesnt even add up like 6,4 or something and it wasnt geneitical because the dad was like 5,6 it was just a freak thing. I know brothers height can be slightly diffrent like by two inches and i am the same im 2 inches taller than my two brothers but most of my family are around the same height as my brothers are so it does happen. But i personally think Ross is pushing 6,0 even with the pic with he's brother he's blatently around the same height of 5,11. And Paul Ross is only mid 5,11 at best as on fitclub andy fordam the darts player whos 6,0 seemed to be quite abit taller than ross so he must of been low 5,11. So i still think johnathon is 6,0 at best. He simply wears massive shoes that im sure of. Years ago he didnt seem to be that tall all of the sudden he seems to have gained about 3 inches and is about 6,3. I swear he was once nearly as tall as lennex lewis so if he could look nearly as tall as him when he's blatently about 6,0 then he must be wearing elvator shoe. He probably knew Lewis was on and though oh id better raise my shows so that im 6,4 lol. He could be but im betting he's no more than 6,0. Andy Foredam was taller than Pual ross even by the picture with john and paul below it was blatently obvious. To me from the picture below both paul and john are the same height 5,11.
Parker said on 27/Aug/05
Not sure I agree with you regarding brother's heights- my brother is 4 to 5 ins taller than me. I've two close friends, one has a brother 4 ins taller like myself and my sibling, the other has a brother 6 ins taller.
