Holly Willoughby Gets £200k Pay Rise To Close Gender Pay Gap

The Mirror allege that negotiations were spurred on after Holly and Phil signed up to present Dancing On Ice together, following its relaunch.

"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.

Sources have suggested that ITV chiefs realised they would be unable to pay them the same fee for the celebrity ice skating competition and not for their work on "This Morning".

Holly Willoughby has reportedly netted a £200,000 per annum pay increase from ITV, after recent claims asserted that she was earning almost a third less for her work on "This Morning" than her male co-host, Philip Schofield. "Quite rightly, that has now been rectified and they both earn exactly the same", an insider told The Mirror on Thursday (August 24th).

The generous boost means the 36-year-old is finally earning the same salary as her This Morning co-star Philip Schofield.

A list revealed just a third of the company's highest paid stars were female, with seven male stars earning more than Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman, who is on around £500,000.

It is believed Phillip was pocketing £600,000, whilst Holly was on £400,000.

Radio 2 breakfast show host Chris Evans is the BBC's top earner, taking home between £2.2m and £2.25m.

They remained on the show together until 2011, when Holly departed to host The Voice.

The two went off on their holidays at the end of last month and wife and husband duo Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes took over presenting duties. "Producers love the idea of going back to the original line-up and they're both really excited to return to their roots".

It was first reported in March that Dancing On Ice was set to return to screens for the first time since it was axed in 2014 due to poor ratings.
