BBC Pay 









The BBC has revealed a list of its top earning stars as it seeks to address its gender pay gap controversy.

The broadcaster has been under pressure in recent years over the disparity between between its top earning male and female talent. 

Gary Lineker was once again the BBC’s top earner, according to new figures, but he is taking a pay cut. 

Lineker took £1.75 million, according to the figures, which cover the period until the end of March this year – before any cut. 

Radio 2 breakfast show DJ Zoe Ball on £1.36 million is the highest-paid woman in the top 10. 

Graham Norton takes about £725,000 for his Radio 2 show and some TV work, but not his chat show. 

Radio 2 DJ Steve Wright is on about £475,000 and election night presenter Huw Edwards is on more than £465,000.
