How Much?! Holly Willoughby Is Getting A Pay Rise And It’s A Lot!
She could buy half a million Freddo bars with it.
Holly Willoughby and her partner in crime, Phillip Schofield, have been co-hosting shows on ITV for years, but until recently, he was earning much more than she was.
Now, in an effort to close the gender pay gap, ITV have given the 36-year-old a pay increase of £200,000.
According to the Daily Mirror, the decision came after both presenters signed up for the new season of Dancing On Ice. It seems producers realised how huge a gap there was between the pair, and so Holly will be receiving an extra £200K to bring her up to the £600,000 Philip is earning for his slot on This Morning.
“It seemed ridiculous they were going to get paid the same fee for Dancing on Ice but Holly was lagging behind on This Morning,” a source told the newspaper. “Quite rightly, that has now been rectified and they both earn exactly the same.”
We’re only a *little* bit jealous.
