Zoe says thanks a mil­lion

- Terry Wogan · Geraint Wyn Davies

I KNOW the BBC is des­per­ately seek­ing to in­tro­duce some sort of long over­due par­ity to their pay scales for women do­ing ex­actly the same work as their pre­vi­ously much bet­ter re­warded male coun­ter­parts.

But a mil­lion pound pay rise for los­ing a mil­lion lis­ten­ers, as in Zoe Ball’s case, might be tak­ing that aim a bit far. I do not doubt that she is per­son­ally hugely like­able, but the statis­tics sug­gest I’m scarcely alone in find­ing that her breath­less gush and Ra­dio 2’ s break­fast show are not a happy match.

She makes Gary Davies sound as sub­ver­sive as Terry Wo­gan.
