BBC pay: Men still dominate star salaries list
World | society | 09:30, 12 July 2018 | 1093

AKIPRESS.COM - Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has overtaken Chris Evans as the best-paid person on the list, earning between £1.75m-£1.76m in 2017-18, BBC reports.

Evans, Graham Norton, Jeremy Vine and John Humphrys are among those to have seen their pay drop since last year.

Claudia Winkleman is still the top woman, on £370,000-£379,999. Mary Berry and Newsnight's Emily Maitlis are among eight women to have joined the list.

Winkleman was eighth last year but has now dropped to 13th as a result of a shake-up of the corporation's structure.

Shows like Strictly Come Dancing, which are made by BBC Studios, are no longer included on the list because BBC Studios is now considered a commercial entity.

The BBC said the published salaries do not yet fully reflect some pay rises and pay cuts, which will not filter through until next year's list. This is the second year that the BBC has published the salaries of its best-paid presenters, although actors, comedians and some hosts have been removed this time as a result of the BBC Studios change.

Last year, the top seven were all men and the list sparked an outcry about gender inequality, with some men shown to have been paid more than female co-hosts.

There were also complaints about a lack of ethnic diversity. This year, the figures at the top of the list are all white again, although the BBC said the overall number of BAME stars on the list is rising.
