The 5ft 7ins Top Gear host admitted years of torment made him “a very angry person”.
‘Hamster’ Hammond, 43, said: “I didn’t enjoy school.
“I’ve never thought of myself as having been bullied but lately I’ve been thinking maybe I was for being short.”
His way of coping was “to deny it, say it was all just fun”.
He added: “I was the older brother and it didn’t do to be picked on by anyone, so I think I tried to get in first, and that made me a very angry person.”
He studied at Solihull School, West Midlands, then Ripon Grammar in North Yorks.
Top Gear co-host Jeremy Clarkson teases Hammond about his stature, but he was voted the world’s second sexiest short man after film star Tom Cruise.
