He is a small man. Look at the width of his shoulders and head size in comparison to the rest of his body. I would venture to say that he is 5'5 and no taller. He was known as the small man with a big voice.

Funny, but the picture you chose makes him look a lot like Martin Freeman, so, perhaps he's a hobbit!

Looks about 2 inches shorter than Ricky Wilson on the One Show right now.

Here's Astley next to Tom Cruise. Looks actually 5'10'' to me.

Yesterday I watched Pete Waterman's list of top 100 popsongs, half of them the crap he had penned himself, and I did see a couple of Astley's old videos. Despite his Elvis hair, shoulderpads and chunky shoes, he looked shortish in all of them. Unless all the girls in his vids were supertall...

5'10" is definately off ROb. Downgrade??

He's got to be shorter. Astley was always described as being small in stature and journalists were often quoted as saying that his voice conflicted with his small image.

i saw this guy in the 90's too, he actually looks 5'9 tops (with shoes), so i agree with glenn, maybe 5'8 barefooted.

I think I saw him in 1990.5-8 tops.

This guy looks nowhere near 5’10”. I would say he is closer to 5’7”.

I really have doubts about this listing. Sure, I was only a kid when he was big, but my cousin was a huge fan of him and she had like piles of his posters, articles cut out from magazines (no fan-sites back in those days!) and the journalists always described him as a small guy with big voice. I also remember that they mentioned that he was some kind of natural phenomenon because he had four voice strings instead of regular two. Anyway, I'd say he's about 5'7".

I have to somewhat agree with the previous poster. You can check out his videos on youtube and I don't think he is taller than 5'9". 5'10" is possible. He may have had tall models in his videos.

Is he really this tall? 5'10"???
I remember seeing him in videos as a youngster and he seemed to be much shorter. Perhaps it was just an illusion from his videos... Is there anyone who has true confirmation as to his true stature?
[Editor Rob: this was best guess I could get on him...his hairstyle certainly made him appear a bit more]
