What You Need To Know About The Big BBC Salaries Reveal

Household names Graham Norton and Fiona Bruce BBC reveals its top earners… but only a third are women by Aidan Radnedge Published

We're working for the public, so why shouldn't they know?

And of course, I'll admit here that my knowledge of BBC television personalities perhaps isn't the best, but with the exception of Mishal Husain, who sits in the £200,000 to £249,999 bracket, numerous stars cited as being on the highest-paid lists are white.

The BBC has been quick to admit that it's got some way to go in terms of equal pay, with BBC director general Tony Hall releasing a statement to launch the annual report.

Evans tops the list of highest paid network stars - ahead of Gary Lineker in second place with $1.67 million to $2.35 million and Graham Norton, who earned $1.1 million to $1.2 million.

The highest paid star is Chris Evans, who looks pretty happy here don't ya think? There were no women in the top seven earners, while just two, Claudia Winkleman and Fiona Bruce, made it into the top 10.

The BBC has published what it pays senior managers for several years but has always resisted calls to declare the salaries of on-screen "talent", saying it would have an inflationary effect in a competitive market.

A "John Harumphrys" account joked the real John Humphrys, who earned at least £600,000 past year, would be avoiding his Radio 4 Today programme colleagues Justin Webb, who earned at least £150,000, and Nick Robinson, who was revealed to be on between £250,000 and £299,999.

For part-time workers the pay gap favours women, who now earn 6% more than men. He earned between £600,000 and £649,999.

Laura Kuenssberg, the BBC's political editor, earns between £200,000 and £249,999 - less than PM host Eddie Mair, who earns between £300,000 and £349,999.

"Two thirds of the list are men". Head judge Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli made between £200,000 - £250,000, while Craig Revel Horwood and Darcey Bussell were paid between £150,000 and £200,000. Craig Revel Horwood had the same pay as Bussell.

Speaking to reporters about the revelation that he earned between £2.2 million and £2.25m in the year to April 2017 - 20 times more than Tory leader Theresa May - Evans agreed: 'I'm paid more than the Prime Minister'.

Lord Hall said again last night that he believed the move to be "wrong", describing it as a "poachers' charter" for rival broadcasters.

"If it becomes clear that people doing the same job with the same level of experience but being paid at very different levels, people will question why that can be the case", said Mr Collins. "If you look at those on the list who we have hired or promoted in the last three years, 60% of women and almost a fifth come from a BAME background", he added.

"But of course we all appreciate that we are dealing with the public's money".

The BBC's disclosure of staff that earn more than £150,000 a year has highlighted significant gender imbalances within the publicly funded organisation.

Surprisingly, rounding out the top five radio presenters - after Chris Evans, Steve Wright and Grimmy - are Vanessa Feltz and Simon Mayo, who both earn the same as the Radio 1 presenter.
