The figures showed a 10% gender pay gap between male and female radio presenters, actors and tv hosts, with two thirds of the top 96 earners being male (64 in total). BBC radio 2 breakfast presenter Chris Evans tops the list, earning between £2.2 million and £2.25 million over the last year. However, the highest earning female, Strictly presenter Claudia Winkleman, earned less than half of this amount (falling into the £400,000 - £450,000 bracket). The One Show’s Matt Baker ranked in the £450,000 - £499,999 bracket, while female co-presenter Alex Jones earned a salary of £400,000 - £449,999. Similarly, Casualty star Derek Thompson received between £350,000 and £400,000, whilst his female co-star Amanda Mealing received between £250,000 and £300,000[1]. The gender pay gap present within the salaries of the BBC stars is less than the average national gender pay gap, which currently resides at 18.1% (2016 figure).
