Jeff Seidel Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Oct 10, 2018 KENORA, Ontario – Joe Murphy hunches over, unable to speak, unable to respond. His eyes float to the back of his head. His forehead creases with wrinkles. Frozen in place. Still strong and athletic, the muscles in his arms tense. His hands contort, his fingers curl and lock in place, becoming rigid as a brick.

THE BBC has published its latest salary disclosures revealing what some of its top stars are paid. All 12 of the top earners at the Beeb are men — but how much are they paid, and who are the top paid women? Here's all you need to know. Match of the Day host Gary tops the list after Chris Evans had more than £500,000 wiped from his pay. Claudia Winkleman is 13th in the list, earning £1.3million less than the top earner, while Vanessa Feltz is in 16th overall.
