Shirley’s Strictly equal pay de­mand

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Shirley Bal­las has won a £ 70,000 pay rise to match former Strictly head judge Len Good­man.

Shirley, 57, was paid £180,000 last year – less than Len’s £250,000 for do­ing the same job.

The former world Latin dance cham­pion is said to have “in­sisted” on par­ity in the wake of the BBC gen­der pay row.

A Strictly source said: “Shirley in­sisted her salary was brought up to what Len Good­man was paid in the role of head judge.

“It’s a great vic­tory for equal pay.”

Last night friends said LAbased Shirley was “highly likely” to sign the new deal.
