Men ‘need more money for wives’
CASUALTY star Tom Chambers has been slammed after defending the BBC pay gap by suggesting men need more cash as they “have to pay for their wives and children”.
The actor ( above), who plays paramedic Sam Strachan on the BBC show, was accused of having a “1950s” mindset on Twitter.
Others described his comments as offensive while gay rights activists also took aim at the soap star.
Tom, 40, was defending his Casualty co-star Derek Thompson after it was revealed last week he earns up to £399,000 for his 31-year role as Charlie Fairhead.
Tom said Thompson had “earned his credits like a footballer” thanks to his decades of “arriving in the dark and leaving in the dark”.
He then added: “Many men’s salaries aren’t just for them, it’s for their wife and children, too.”
But Caroline Hirons said: Tom Chambers’ wife needs to take him in hand. And then throat punch him.” FORMER World heavyweight champion Mike Tyson became a boxer because a bully killed his pigeon.

“They’re on a show called what did you expect? Eight weeks of holding hands? Come on!
“I never said I don’t think people should have sex on telly. It’s managed to captivate people of all ages and all generations – that’s when you know you’re doing something right.”
