Judges on television reality show "Strictly Come Dancing" have reportedly demanded a pay hike, after realising their counterparts on BBC's "The Voice" are paid more. The two shows are set to debut, together, on 24 March.
The Sun said the former show's Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood are believed to take home approximately £90,000 each series. However, they will be re-negotiating their contracts now. According to the Daily Mail, the judges on "The Voice" earn between £100,000 and £500,000 each.
"There are some rumblings of discontent over what they see as the huge sums being spent on 'The Voice'. When they come to renegotiate their contracts, the BBC will bear in mind that last year's series was one of the best ever - and their new deals will reflect that and they will be paid accordingly," insiders from BBC were quoted as saying by Digital Spy and the Mail Online.
