Hmmm maybe near 5ft9 peak for Savile?
Editor Rob: he might have been around that mark.

5'10 for Savile? LMAO, maybe standing on a big colouring book ;-) Saw him with Louis Thereoux years back and looked in 5'7.5-5'8 range I think. But he'd have been 80 odd and would have lost height.
It is sad what happened to Rolf though. People will only think of him as sick pervert now, but I can't fully forget the endearing man I grew up watching and his artistic talent. He's a guy you'd never suspect would have done things like that! I mean he was always a bit eccentric, so was his wife, but not that obvious. Savile on the otherhand we always knew he was a creep.

Rob, I suppose Savile will never get a page here will he?
The site documents famous heights, so if he had a page in the past I would probably have left it.
As for Jimmy Savile's actual height, he claimed to be "about 5ft 10" at one point, although you'd never have thought of him that tall, he always seemed shorter than that.

Found a claim here Rob what i thought you may found interesting, Jimmy savile claiming 5ft10 in the ending few seconds of the clip, by this time if he was 70 something and was only ever near 5ft8, that was probably a good 3 inch upgrade haha ....
[Editor Rob: Jimmy was what I'd call a 'huge' British name, but a global non-entity...I wonder if there was ever a case of a celebrity so well known in their own country (in the UK he would be known by 99.9% of the population aged 30 or over) to have ever been exposed as such a creep?
Anyway, claiming 5ft 10 is a bit of a joke, I'm sure he lost height by then, but never looked 5ft 10 in younger days.]

speaking of celebs turned child Molesters what is your guess for gary glitter rob ?
[Editor Rob: both Glitter and Jimmy Saville looked roughly similar height, maybe 5ft 7 peak...jimmy could look near to 5ft 8.]

Not a particular page i want to be commenting on, but i came across this video where he futhermore claimed 5ft10 and a half, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_4tM9gyYZc I think thats about right, and what a shame about the findings, its a shame the mans now too old to be rightly punsished, this should of happened 40 years ago, should be away for the rest of his days now.

Shouldn't you remove this page?

Well Rob, let's hope not. Especially if it involves young teenagers. What this man did was despicable.

Rob it should be Painter rather than Paint anyway. Timmy Mallet's mallet Pinky Punky, that bearded guy from Knightmare, and T-bag will be convicted next :-) Sort of like learning that Santa Claus has the eye for young ladies! I didn't think he looked as tall as this. I'm not sure you should remove him. Most of his offences are pretty minor and I think he's been blow up by the media into a Glitter like personality which I really don't think he is. If we can have a page for Hitler then nothing comes close!
[Editor Rob: he probably dropped 2 inches and in the clink he'll probably lose another inch or so...but there will be other scandalous celebrities in the future I'm sure.]

This person should be removed.

We have Hitler on this site why should we take Rolf off ??
James B said on 5/Jul/14
Retire page rob?
Almost 5 10
said on 2/Jul/14
Bet there's a few more celebrities sweating. At this rate, Rob will be the only person listed on this site! The lid is slowly coming off...
[Editor Rob: I don't think many would have seen this one coming...]

Remove him because of a conviction? So now we are indulging in the Stalinist practice of removing people we disapprove of from history! Does that mean Tony Blair will be removed if he's ever convicted of war crimes?
What a load of posturing self-righteous, politically correct nonsense.

:( its for the best

Rob, would you ever consider retiring this page because of his conviction?
"Peak height was 5ft 10.5in (179cm)"
"Rolf Harris's height is 5ft 9.5in (177cm)"
Looks sub-5ft10 range now at 83.
[Editor Rob: I might retire it yeah if he is convicted.]

I walked towards him and was about a foot from him in the Windsor Royal shop. He is definitely 5ft 10in.

Possibly a bit shorter now he's in his eighties?
