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]

Legit 6ft 1 pushing 186.
Tommo says on 14/Aug/14
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.

Ross - 1.84 m
Arch Stanton says on 7/May/14
Rob he looked 1-2 inches taller than Bradley Cooper...
1.85 m, 83 kg says on 16/Mar/14
Yeah, 6'0" - 6'1/2" for me.

Yeah, at his peak.

solid 185cm guy
Natasha says on 5/Feb/14
I think 6'1.5" is fair
Lenad is sexy says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 21/Jan/14
Getting there. 1.84 m max height.
Paul177 says 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.
wolverine fan says on 18/Jan/14
why the downgrade Rob?
[Editor Rob: I think the half inch was always on a peg for 6 years]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Dec/13
He claimed 6ft2 aswell on one occasion
Lenad is sexy says on 29/Dec/13
I'd say 6ft1 as exactly
avi says 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 says 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 says 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.
Rhonda says on 14/Dec/13
on The Jonathan Ross show, Will Ferrell had him beat by over 3 inches. Ross must be shorter than this height. Ross has got to be 6ft.
Pleb says on 29/Nov/13
Looks around 6ft0.5/184cm, has an easy inch over Becks.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says on 29/Oct/13
He is not 6'1.5", more like 6 flat or a little over...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Sep/13
Might be 186cm, but not more.
Brammo183 says 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 says on 9/Aug/13
6'1.5 in shoes maybe.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says on 18/Jun/13
He looks like he is 6'4" when he is on his show
cole says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 27/Dec/12

I think Steve Jones is around 6'3" and Vernon barely looks taller here!
Arch Stanton says on 27/Dec/12
I think 6'4" is about right but he can definitely look taller than that on occasion.
James says 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 says on 23/Dec/12
Dunno, Vernon looks a legit 6'4" but he can definitely look 6'5"-6'6" at times.
Arch Stanton says on 23/Dec/12
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 says 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 says 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 says 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.

he makes david gandy look 191 cm when he his only 188-189 cm.
James says on 10/Nov/12
I guess he can look 184cm next too some celebs but I think he's more 6'1
Copnovelist195 says 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 says on 30/Oct/12
Indeed he didnt even look 6' with Lineker lol, strange really.
James says on 29/Oct/12
6ft1 (185cm)
Frankie says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 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." 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 says 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 says 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) says on 13/Sep/12
6'0.5 sounds good.
johno says on 31/Aug/12
ps, he wasn't wearing any funny shoes, just normal sandels/casual flats so his height looked relatively lower ...
johno says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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] says on 24/Jul/12
He always looks tall! 6'1.5 is a good guess!
1.85 m, 83 kg says 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 says 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 says on 10/Feb/12
I don`t think he`s over 185.
1.85 m, 83 kg says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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.]

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.
