      Default How much do you think the presenters get paid?

      Caroline Lindsay just said she has a flat in London and a house in Portsmouth to own/rent a property in London and have a property in Portsmouth surely you must be on a good wage it is not that far to commute to is it? I wonder if she does other things beside Bid I assume she does.





      What do you think they get paid and is Peter Simon the highest paid?

      i think most presenters are freelance so earn from other areas aswell maybe that's how they can afford more than one place not too sure if they would be able to just on sit up wages though who knows?

      I once worked in London for a few months back in 2002, and if the job had actually continued (they had to let me go because the department couldn't afford to keep employing me), I would have rented a studio flat in London whilst owning a house near Southampton at least for a while - you don't have to be super-rich to do something like that if you don't have a huge mortgage on one property (or own the property outright) or have a house share. Ironically the job I had wasn't a million miles from Acton where the Sit-up studios are based.

      Commuting to London from the South Coast is possible but it requires getting up regularly at least by 4am and being very occasionally late for work when the M6 is gridlocked (assuming 9am start time); this is by car, with public transport also theoretically possible depending on the location and connection times. I certainly wouldn't want to do such a commute by car for more than a few months, and those who do commute usually live a little closer to London (Winchester, Basingstoke, etc.), which makes it a lot easier.

      Anyway, Sit-up were advertising a presenter job about five years ago and the advertised salary was something like £17k from memory, though I bet they pay Peter Simon a bit more than this.

      Dunno, anything upto £500 for a 3 1/2 hour stint of talking rubbish?

      Oh, add on £7.99 for their payslip which is sent by MyHermes and probably never turns up!

      I was gonna say around £18,000 and a bit more dependant on how much stock you can shift. Yes, I'm sure Peter Simon does get the most, but I can't iaine him getting OTT money.

      I know that presenters on Ideal World get paid in the 50-60k region.

      Back in 1987 I did some TV work for the BBC.

      I got £50 for 2 hours which works out to be £115 in today's money.

      So it's gonna be about £200 for a 3 1/2 hour stint. Not a lot, but if you're on every night of the week that's a nice little earner!

      yeah, Television is a weird one for salary's... I doubt it's less than £100 though.

      It's around 18k per year, so about £360 per week. Haven't you heard the presenters say "People think we get paid lots. We don't. We're like a shop assistant but on the TV"
