Graham Norton has been revealed as one of the BBC’s top earners.

The 49-year-old Cork man earns a little above £2m (€2.54m) from the UK broadcaster. But his pay packet was trumped by that of Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson (52).

The TV motor-mouth’s income was boosted by his stake in Bedder 6, the merchandise company that markets the Top Gear brand.

Profits rose due to the success of live shows and DVD sales, which saw his dividends increase to £2.7m, up from £1.8m. His BBC presenting fees took his earnings to a cool £3.5m.
