Actually the footage with Froch shows how yes with poor posture Ross looks 6ft, the same as Froch. Every so often though he stands up tall next to Froch and suddenly can look 186.
Rory said on 27/May/16
@Johno, this video 8mins 34 secs...definitely taller, how much is debatable at least half an inch though.

With Ronaldo, Yh he looked shorter unquestionably, but it was clear to see his posture was shot, up straight certainly ten yrs ago anyway if not today too I doubt Ronaldo would measure taller.
Johno said on 26/May/16
Rory, do you mind showing me where he looks taller than Froch?
Rory said on 26/May/16
No taller than Froch ? You should have gone to spec savers.
Johno said on 25/May/16
No taller than Carl Froch who Rob has met and looked an 1-inch shorter than Ronaldo whose height as laser measured and measured by Tussauds in shoes.

This listing seems like his morning height with some rounding.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/16
Not a great shot for height since they're both leaning in. I think Ross would have over 1in on Grylls though

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
Rob, maybe 186cm is closer?


I think his 6ft1 claim holds some validity. May very well have got measured at that mid-morning. He still looks a decent 6ft1 today.
James B said on 20/Mar/16
So rob could he have peaked at 6'1.5 since he did have at least 2 on wills?
Editor Rob: he may not have been wrong about measuring 6ft 1.5, it's just whether he was that mark more at 9am or not.
James B said on 17/Mar/16
Rob 10 years ago you said he looked at least 2 inches taller than Bruce Willis when he appeared on his show
Editor Rob: yeah he did back then.
Johno said on 24/Feb/16
I believe David Tennant just about looks 6'0 next to Rob and this is the height i am giving him. Him and Ross look similar in height, maybe Ross has the edge?

Tennant 6'0
Ross 6'0.25
Adam 1.88 m said on 20/Feb/16
There definitely didn't look like 6 inches between him and Rob Brydon on the Jonathan Ross show.
Rory said on 18/Feb/16
The thing is on that same episode David Tennant whose around 6'1 himself, similar to Ronaldo also had a good inch on Ross..and yet when Tennant was on the show a few yrs back and Ross was stood better, Ross edged him and also if you type in Ross and Tennant pictures, there's a a number where Ross looks taller than him, also look at his shoulder level, despite being a good inch shorter than Ronaldo on the day i noted how his shoulders were higher, itd be unusual for someone an inch shorter to have higher shoulders. No one could convince me Ross in the 80s at least was any less than a solid 6'1, looked tall and my mum actually said she met him in either '89/90 and remarked upon how tall he was. Imo..i think he needs a peak and current height...peak- 6'1.25...today-6'0.75.
Johno said on 17/Feb/16
@Rory, with the lean, Ross loks around 1.25-1.5 inches shorter then Ronaldo. I don't believe he would lessen the gap to less then 1-inch if he were to straighten to up and when Ronaldo first walked in, the difference was there to see. Ronaldo was measured at 6'1.

Ronaldo 6'1
Jonathon Ross 6'0.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/16
Rob, what's the likelihood of him measuring 184cm?
Editor Rob: I would say that he probably can still measure around 6ft 1, I think just at times his posture isn't that great...but standing tall he looks 6ft 1.
Idk said on 12/Feb/16
Ronaldo is taller than listed on here. He's definitely 186 through out most of the day. I think Ross is full 185 today but has bad posture
Rory said on 12/Feb/16
How someone looks when standing with terrible posture like Ross did with Ronaldo is irrelevant.. You have two 6'1 men. One stands with flawless posture(Ronaldo)..and the other stands hunched over..it doesn't take Einstein to work out in that case thered be a height difference,however, put Ross next to Ronaldo with military posture and theyd be very very close.
Johno said on 12/Feb/16
With Ronaldo, he looked a bit under 6'0 and even in the after photos you clearly see there would be a solid inch between them but then again Ronaldo did have some thick-heeled formal shoes on but if Ronaldo is 6'1 then Ross looks around 6'0 flat.

6'0.25
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.

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.

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]

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.]

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]

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!!

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".

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 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.

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

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.

ps, he wasn't wearing any funny shoes, just normal sandels/casual flats so his height looked relatively lower ...

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

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.

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.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 7/Feb/12
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.]

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.

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.

Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 16/Jan/12
Rob this needs a downgrade. clearly he is closer to Beckhams height than "the rocks" height.

on here you list Beckham as 182cm and rock as 191cm. 186cm is the ABSOLUTE max thats possible. saying that, I remember you saying:
"Beckham ranges between 5'11-5'11.5" so 180-181.5cm for Beckham IMO means Ross cant be more than 185 and even maybe 184cm.

clear downgrade somewhere between 184-186 is the credible argument with 185cm or 6'1 flat probably most likely.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 14/Jan/12
Hmm, not sure about this one, might be including his hair. His claim is believable but always thought he looked less, thought it was due to his larger frame. Then again, watched him on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', looked exactly the same height as 1.85 m Miranda Hart. That's taking into account Ross' impeccable posture, compared to Hart's poor. Additionally, Ross' dress shoe compared to Hart's 'thick ankle socks', as I like to call them.

Johno you seriously are useless at estimating heights. Jonathan Ross 5'11.5" LMAO. Rob why do you let these people post such nonsense? Anything under 6'1" is a joke for Ross. He always looks 6'1" range.
________________________________________________________________________

Shaun clearly useless at reading and watching links. Ross is not in the 6'1 range. I have mainly estimated him between 6'0 - 6'0.5 He does look a weak 6'0 with some celebrities. I'll tell you what, i'll post another link for you but please look at it and dnt cover your eyes

Click Here

Check him out with the self-proclaimed 5'9, Gary Lineker, whose listed as 5'9.5 on here. Good comparisons can be made. The geezer doesn't even have 3 inches on lineker, let alone 3.5 inches like your suggesting. The guy hardly has 2 inches even :S Gosh, ross looks so far off his 6'1.5 that its not even funny.

You see guys like the 5'9 - 5'9.5 gary lineker, 5'9 chatshow host alan carr, 5'10 chatshow host george lopez, the 6'0 - 6'0.5 john cena, the 6'2.5 brandon routh etc will continue to make celebrities and thier fanboys dissappointed.

You may measured your height near a black hole but seriously does not have the proportions of a guy in the 6'1 range. He looks to stumpy and his skull looks way to big.

So tell me, how tall do you think ross looks next to lineker? maybe alan carr? You know the yardsticks that will continue to be pain in the backside for all the high inflators? Continue to watch, as the 5'9 alan carr will continue to chop down hollywood heights and most people will continue to ignore his interviews.

Alan carr 5'9
Gary lineker 5'9 - 5'9.5
John cena 6'0 - 6'0.5
George lopez 5'10
Jonathon ross 5'11.5 - 6'0.5 ( Definently not in the 6'1 range )
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11

[Editor Rob: I have read him saying 6ft 4, although I think he has possibly lost height]
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11
Yup you're right Rob, in fact I zoomed in. He's 186-187cm range NOT 189cm. Although he does look taller than Erin who was measured at 185cm. The thing is more chance he was measured wearing 1 inch sneakers than barefoot.
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11
Well Rob, Ramsay looks uncannily similar to myself in height and build. And I aint 6'2.5!! More likely 186-7cm.
Shaun said on 25/Oct/11
To claim he is 5'11.5" next to a well heeled 6' Ele Macpherson, well just absurd. He doesn't look under 6'1.5" next to Elle who's likely 6'3" ish in those heels

It turns out, i do believe beckham is around 5'10.5 - 5'10.75 in the evening. He was shorter then prince william 5 inches, whose 6'2.5 - 6'3. He was also a bit shorter then the 6'0.5, david cameron. The 5'11.5 estimate was based off the 5'9 alan carr. But, there would be more 5'11.5 comparisons to be confirmed. I for now believe that he is more in the 6'0 - 6'0.5 range.
johno said on 15/Oct/11

hard to make comparisons but at 0.39, the 5'7.5 measured, most likely midday was not 5 inches shorter ross. Andre makes ross look like a weak 6'0 same as the 5'9 alan carr.

The pattern here is ross, with any celebrity that height is reasonably accurate ie the measured peter andre, the modest self-confessed 5'9 alan carr or the 5'11 john barrowman, who ross has barely an inch on, makes ross look a weak 6'0..

To me, ramsey, will smith and ross seem the same in height. All look like strong 6'0 to 6'0.5.

With the 5'9 alan carr, theres no doubt about it, ross struggles to look 6'0 and thats the problem. Maybe carr could actually be 5'9.5 - 5'9.75 and he just casually rounded himself down.
johno said on 14/Oct/11
O'connor was measured at 6'1, even though she is listed at 6'0 so i'm pretty sure she had her shoes on therefore, i doubt very much she would have made ramsey take off his, to measure his height ie like-for-like. That measurement was most probably ramsey in shoes. It seemed like an early day measurement as opossed to an evening measurement.

Rob believes gordans height was actually 6'1.25, that could be. If we subtract shoes, god knows what he was wearing, his height was be nearer 6'0 barefoot, it seems midday. Ross and ramsey seem similar in height.

Ramsey 6'0 - 6'0.25 ( Midday height )

well gordon ramsey was actually measured 6'2.5 on the stadiometer or at least eric o connor called out that number (obviously in shoes) and he and ross are very close in height 4min 50secs Click Here there is ramsey getting measured 31 min mark roughly Click Here

also if ross is 5'11.5 (6'0.5 in shoes) what height elle mcpherson in ~4 inches heels, 6'1 max.... Click Here
[Editor Rob: we've seen this clip a few years ago on here, but this moment I have just looked at it again more closely...

they're using what looks like the same stadiometer as mine, apart from the red part it looks a seca model. But the general thing looks exactly the same.

the 6ft 2.5 said by Erin is COMPLETE BULL$HIT! She said it out loud but I paused it at a few of the frames around around 31.49.

If you manage to do it yourself, you'll see see the dark black bits can be seen (170cm then 180cm), now the top part of stadiometer covers the 190 bit and the bottom bit covers the 6ft part...if it near 6ft 2.5 the 190cm mark would be visible about 2cm above the pointy measurement lines and the bottom part would be 2cm above the 6ft line and we'd actually see the 6ft mark easily.

My conclusion is the measurement is nearer 6ft 1 and 1/3rd range or 186-7cm range. I think the measurement might be very close to what volunteer number 2 of the height challenge measured.

I would say 186.3-4cm was the real measurement.

whether he had shoes or not, that's the big question.

But absolutely not measured 6ft 2.5 on that device!

Another example of being told one thing on a program but the reality being different.]

___________________________________________________________________

Rio ferdinand is currently listed at 6'2.5, he was about 2 inches shorter then the 6'4 - 6'4.5 lennox lewis as well.

Anyway, ross has near 3 inches on funnyman, Alan carr. The strange thing is, carr states his height at 5'9 and i think thats one of the sincerest admissions out there because he has the right dimensions of a true 5'9. Honestly, ross appears a weak 6'0 with alan carr

Rob I know this is bogus, but in this video:

Ross greets both Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, and at about 0:06 Thom doesn't look as short as 5'5.5" in front of him even with the camera angles, and even Greenwood (who I think is about 5'11.25"-5'11.5" perhaps 6 ft at most) looks taller than Ross by like about 1.5 in. Then if you pause right at 0:10 you'll see the ground is pretty much at even level. So there is something wrong with Ross, he couldn't have shrunk that much! He's barely 50!

As i stated in earlier posts, i don't see ross or smith that much over 6'0. In the 2008 interview, smith was a bit shorter then ross but i think it was due to smith wearing complete flats and ross, office shoes.

- Heres jonathan ross with the 5'10 listed alan carr. He seems to be close to 3 inches taller then him there, however, he has head tilted upwards and completely fully stretched whereas carr is standing casually. Further, theres a slight gradient due to the curvature of the bridge, the people in the background get a higher lift advantage. The difference between carr and ross is more rather 2 inches. Making ross less then 6'1, 6'0-6'075 in range. Footwear isn't shown.

He has claimed both 6'1 1/2 and 6'2. More than likely these are shoed heights. A weak 6ft1 is probably right. He looked about a solid inch shorter than Jay Z and 0.5-1inch shorter than Will Smith and around 3 inches shorter than Jeff Goldblum.

6'0.75 is not impossible for Ross.

who knows these days goldblum could be 6'3 1/2?
Anonymous said on 24/Feb/11
penn only started saying he was over 6'6 last 2 years because he was taller than 6'6 listed nfl player jason taylor on dancing with the stars in 2008 but i suspect he doesn't realise is taylor is measured 6'5.5 barefoot

when i met jillette 5 years ago he wasn't over 6'6, didn't look over 6'6 with john cleese either nearly 20 years ago
James said on 23/Feb/11
Well who knows Vegas these days goldblum could be 192cm??????

Maybe this is more accurate

Jonathan Ross 6'1 (185cm)
Jeff Goldblum 6'4 (193cm)
Penn Jillete 6'6 (198cm)

Penn was 6'6.5 at his peak though but i think he's shrunk a bit recently.
Vegas said on 23/Feb/11
looks about 3 inches between goldblum and ross in that video, i don't see 4, thats roughly 5 inches taller than ross Click Here
Chameleon said on 23/Feb/11
I dont know, I do know he was easily taller then Gyllenhaal who is listed 182cm....
James said on 22/Feb/11
Maybe Ross is 6ft after all?

Look here jonathan ross's head is only 1 inch above jeff goldblums eye level
Click Here

So Jeff Goldblum 6'4 (193cm) and Jonathan Ross 6'0 (183cm)????????

I see more 2 inches....maybe 3 at a push.

I dunno maybe Leslie Nielsen was 5"10 by that stage?
Vegas said on 23/Jan/11
rampage i saw you pin nielsen at 5'11 just before his death, that ain't a 5'11 and 6'1 man there, i agree ross looks 6'1 (look at the photos i posted over on penn jillettes page), but nielsen is easily 4 inches shorter than ross there when ross stands up fully, look at 40 seconds onward
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/11
Looking 6"1 max next to Nielsen
Vegas said on 21/Jan/11

Shorter than 6"1.5(187cm) LL Cool J
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jan/11
Will Smith is 187-188cm
Lenad is sexy said on 17/Jan/11
better chance Will Smith is 186cm than 185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/11
Will Smith is a weak 6"2 guy while Johnathan Ross is 6"1 flat...

Pete Doherty might be 189cm
James said on 3/Jan/11
true rampage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/11
Pete Doherty is 188cm, James and can look 6"3

This guy could be 187cm when he wakes
James said on 30/Dec/10
Pete I think is 187cm. Jonathan Ross 6'0.75 (185cm)?

i thought jonathan ross looked the same height as jay and will smith though? Will Smith though may also be potentially be 185cm or 186cm?
Sara said on 25/Dec/10
Jonathan Ross is visible shorter than pete dorothy on the link below. Pete and Jonathan are both stated here on the site as 187cm. You got someone wrong

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/10
He was just never taller than 6"1 to begin with, James.

He looks at least an inch shorter than Jay Z and Will Smith who are both a shade under 6"2
James said on 6/Dec/10
Yeah I suspect the Rock could be a hair under 6'3 so 185cm is perfect for Ross.

Also looked minimum 3.5 inches shorter than 6'4.75 Vince Vaughn.

That said at his peak Jonathan could have been very close to 6'1.5 not today though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/10
Just 6"1 flat...I wouldn't go lower

Probably is 187cm out of bed though
J.J. said on 3/Dec/10
Even with the Rock you can easily swear he is 6'0.5"-6'0.75" the man is 185cm but I think his 6'1.5" is his wake up time height, maybe he even wakes up at 187cm or between 6'1.5"-6'1.75". Rob has him 0.75" taller than he actually is but I know Rob wouldn't change this listing unless its a full inch overestimation....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
6ft 1.5in and no taller after a good nights sleep...
James said on 2/Dec/10
6'2 in shoes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/10
He's simply not over 6"1.

Except out of bed he's most likely 186-187cm
James said on 29/Nov/10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Nov/10
6"1 flat is too low for Will Smith. He's a weak 6"2.

This guy wears lifts. By the evening he's just under 6"1 I'd say

I agree Hugh I did not think Jonathan look as high as 6'1.5 either with 6'4-6'5 Vince Vaughn.
James said on 22/Nov/10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Nov/10
Johnathan Ross is 6"1 flat or 185cm and wears lifts to appear at least 6"2.

James, he is without a doubt wearing bigger healed shoes than 6"1.75 Will Smith

Will Smith is closer to 6'1 flat than 6'2.

I'd put money on him being the exact same height as me. He's likely a tad over 6'2 out of bed like me. Looking uncannily like Nicholas Cage these days though with the beard.
Shaun said on 17/Nov/10
There is a pic of him barefoot today in the Daily Mail. He is completely relaxed in posture and he looks tall. Looks a strong 6'1" barefoot if you see the pics. Between 6'1" and 6'2", this is right. Yes he can look 6'0.5"-6'1" flat but he definately looks close to 6'2" in the pics I saw today.
James said on 6/Nov/10
ross could have footware advantage although there is a chance both jonahtan ross and will smith are 6'1.
Vegas said on 2/Nov/10
smith and ross look close to the same height to me Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/10
This man is 6"1 max.

Will Smith had 2-3cm on him.
James said on 27/Oct/10
goldblum is not standing with as good posture like the rock is. Goldblum is 6'4 but no way is the rock 193cm. I'd say solid 6'2.5 for the Rock.

Your righ though the rock does look very close to 2 inches taller than Wossy.
MPV said on 5/Oct/07
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....
Rusty james said on 20/Sep/07
Yeah i agree with that person "anonymous" jonathan ross is f8cking obsessed with people's height lol.But u say he's "only 13 stone" like that's light lol.
RatedR said on 24/Aug/07
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.
chris said on 4/Apr/07
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.
