The BBC has published the latest list of its highest-paid stars later as part of its annual report.

Some stars have had pay increases, while others have dropped down the list – although in many cases, such as with Claudia Winkleman, this is a result of some programmes being produced by BBC Studios, which is now considered a commercial entity and so no longer counted.

Here are those earning more than £250,000 in 2017-18:
