Horizon is BBC Two’s science programme which tells amazing science stories, explores mysteries and taps into unknown worlds. They tackle everything from historical tales of space exploration to online dating. But it is their latest episode which has got the nation talking.

Horizon have launched The Great British Intelligence Test and explained how it worked in a special episode on Monday, May 4th.

Leading the research are Dr Hannah Fry and TV presenter (and qualified doctor, may we add) Michael Mosley.

Although the internet was a hubbub of talk about the intelligence test, many were struck by the height of Hannah Fry, particularly stood next to her co-host Michael. So how tall is Hannah?

Meet Dr Hannah Fry

Hannah Fry is a mathematician, author and TV presenter. Hannah works as an Associate Professor in the Mathematics of Cities at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. She studies the patterns in human behaviour, with a particular focus on how humans behave in an urban setting.

Given Hannah’s love for mathematics and science, along with her love for theatre, it’s hardly a surprise that she’s managed to combine her passions in TV work. Hannah has developed and presented numerous programmes with the BBC such as City in the Sky, Climate Change By Numbers, and of course, Horizon.

How tall is Hannah Fry?

  • 5 ft 11

Whenever Hannah has popped up on our screens as a television presenter, many viewers have flocked to find out how tall she is. This has led to many questions directed to Hannah on Twitter, for which we could only find one response back in 2017.

When a family said they were betting on how tall she was, Hannah chipped in with the fun saying: “You lose I’m afraid. A lowly 5’11”.”
