Gary Lineker came second with £1.8 million while Graham Norton came third, bringing home just under £900,000. The most notable thing about the earnings, however, is the massive gender gap between top earners at the BBC.

Only two women earned more than £400,000 compared to 12 men. Chris Evans is paid over four times as much as Claudia Winkleman, the BBC's highest-earning woman. Last year, the corporation paid a total of 214 staff more than £150,000.
