Graham Norton is Third Highest Earner at BBC

The Cork star's yearly salary is £600,000-£609,999 for 2017-18, according to the latest figures released by the BBC. But this is less than half of what their main star, Gary Lineker is on, which is a staggering £1,750,000-£1,759,999.

Graham Norton's fee has dropped considerable during the past 12 months, with him earning £850,000-£899,999 during 2016-2017.

While even the second top earner, Chris Evans is on over double Graham Norton's salary, bringing home a whopping £1,660,000-£1,669,999. His fee has dropped as a result of the fact that he's no longer presenting Top Gear. He was on £2,200,000-£2,249,999 during 2016-2017.

It's disappointing to note that there isn't one female presenter on the BBC's top 10 list of earners.

Claudia Winkleman is the highest paid female presenter, who is number 12 on the list with her salary of £370,000-£379,999. In 2016-17, she earned £450,000-£499,999.
