I guess if Davina McCall made a claim against ITV for Ant & Dec getting paid more per hour for similar work, they could use advertising revenues as justification. The BBC just doesn’t have any means to quantify one presenters importance against another.
In this case most of us realise why the difference in their pay was fair, but it’s clearly not easy to quantify in a court which doesn’t seem to be able to read between the lines.
If happened to be that Anne Robinson had returned to Points of View when Terry Wogan left, Samira Ahmed would be the best part of million pounds poorer tonight.
