The BBC has increased the amount it pays its most popular presenters, in a push to decrease its gender pay gap.

Claudia Winkleman, Zoe Ball and Vanessa Feltz have moved up the BBC’s star salaries list.
But Match of the Day’s Gary Lineker remains at the top of the list, on an unchanged £1.75m per year.

The BBC faced backlash last year after it was revealed all its top 12 earners are male.

However this year, Winkleman is now eigth, Ball is ninth and Feltz is joint 10th.

Of the 75 presenters listed, 60% were men, down from 65% when the list was first published in 2017.

Gary Lineker £1,750,000
Chris Evans £1,250,000
Graham Norton £610,000
Huw Edwards £490,000
Steve Wright £465,000

Alan Shearer £440,000
Andrew Marr £390,000
Claudia Winkleman  £370,000
Zoe Ball £ 370,000
