Apparently since 1990 Terry Wogan has being paid a fee of 9,065 to host 'Children In Need'.(believed to be even more now) The BBC have said they're "not ashamed" and Wogan himself has said he'd "quite happily do it for free" (yet hasn't since 1990). Rolling Eyes

I've lost a bit of respect for him. It seems all he does these day's is whinge about how much TV stars are being paid in these golden handcuff deals. All the while he's is paid to front a charity telethon - the only star to receive a fee.

On the other hand you could argue that anyone who is involved in the sleep-inducing CIN deserves to be paid. Laughing

Do Comic Relief presenters get paid too? Or it just Wogan?

By the way, off topic, but why does Comic relief only happen every two years? IMO it does alot more then CIN, and has a better telethon.

... because it is on every two years.


That's the difference - CiN always feels like a repeat of last year's telethon, but each Comic Relief is truly unique.
