WashintgonD.C., Aug. 2 (ANI): The BBC has recently been asked to publish the names of its stars, who earn more than the United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, which is 143,000 pounds per year.

According to the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee, there was no reason not to publish details of those who get more than 143,000 pounds annually, reports the BBC.

The BBC, however, said that it would allow commercial broadcasters to poach its stars, which "wouldn't be in the interests of license fee payers."

Currently, BBC has published the salary details of executives, who earn more than 150,000 pounds per year.

On the related note, Chris Evans is among the top earners on the BBC list. (ANI)
