    What a disgrace the BBC are! This publicly funded organisation slaps their licence fee on over 75s, and then pay their so-called "stars" crazy amounts of money. Again.

    These greedy people just don't get the anger at this out of date, biased organisation.

    Overall, the BBC's total salary bill for on-air talent in 2019/20 rose by £1m to £144.6m. Hard to rationalise the pay in these hard times but In real terms, due to inflation, the total bill for these people is actually a cut on the previous year.
    How do BBC presenter salaries compare to the commercial broadcast sector?
    I agree the licence model is increasingly a model that is outdated.
