QUOTE(The Guardian)
Since then, many leading BBC men have been shamed into taking substantial pay cuts, with the salary of the outgoing Today programme presenter John Humphrys falling by 110,000. Radio 2’s Steve Wright cut his pay by 75,000 and Jeremy Vine took a 150,000 reduction.

[...]

The BBC’s annual pay disclosures only cover staff who earn 150,000 a year while working directly for the corporation.

They do not include presenters and actors who are employed by independent production companies to make programmes on the BBC’s behalf. As a result, many prominent figures associated with major BBC programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing, Top Gear and Doctor Who – which are made by the commercial BBC Studios arm – do not feature on the list.


01. Gary Lineker: 1.75m
02. Chris Evans: 1.25m
03. Graham Norton: 610,000
04. Huw Edwards: 490,000
05. Steve Wright: 465,000
06. Alan Shearer: 440,000
07. Andrew Marr: 390,000
08. Zoe Ball: 370,000
= Claudia Winkleman: 370,000
10. Vanessa Feltz: 355,000
=. Jason Mohammed: 355,000
12. Nicky Campbell: 340,000
13. Stephen Nolan: 325,000
14. George Alagiah: 315,000
15. Nick Grimshaw: 310,000
16. Lauren Laverne: 305,000
17. Nick Robinson: 290,000
18. John Humphrys: 290,000

Vanessa Feltz is such a random addition to the Top 10?? It's like they were trying to fix the gender pay inbalance, worked out that a lot of the highest paid were the male BBC Radio 2 stars and found the woman who appears weekdays so gave her a payrise. I'm not really sure she has the level of star quality that justifies that high pay

With Chris Evans now gone, Gary Linekar is such an outlier now, especially with his BT Sports gig eek
