Britain's public broadcaster, the BBC, pays its top male star five times more than its best-paid female presenter, it revealed on Wednesday after bowing to the government's demand to publish the salaries of its highest earners. Highest paid was Chris Evans, the presenter of Britain's most popular breakfast radio show who also hosted motoring programme "Top Gear" for one series, receiving up to 2.25 million pounds ($2.9 million) in 2016/17. The highest paid woman was entertainment presenter Claudia Winkleman, who earned less than half a million pounds for her work on "Strictly Come Dancing" and other shows.
Adam Crozier, the former ITV (Frankfurt: A0BLQP - news) chief executive, is being lined up to become chairman of the Vue cinema chain as it examines plans for a blockbuster sale or stock market flotation. Sky News has learnt that Vue, which is controlled by the Canadian pension funds Omers and Aimco, has approached Mr Crozier about the role. Sources close to Vue and its owner said the discussions were likely to result in Mr Crozier being appointed in the coming weeks, although they cautioned that no deal had yet been agreed.
