Radio 2 star Vanessa Feltz and others all take holiday at the same time sparking listener fury

Listener fury as Radio 2 stars Vanessa Feltz, Steve Wright, Sara Cox, Jo Whiley and and Michael Ball ALL take holiday at the same time

Listeners of BBC Radio 2 have expressed anger after 5 of its highest-paid stars all went on holiday final week.

The schedule for Britain’s hottest radio station was remodeled as Vanessa Feltz and her colleagues Steve Wright, Sara Cox, Jo Whiley and Michael Ball had been changed by stand-ins.

‘It’s completely ludicrous that a lot of the day is tousled for listeners. They deserve higher,’ mentioned one annoyed listener. ‘The station is already all over the place. You’d suppose the bosses may let a sure quantity off at a time.’

Ms Feltz (pictured), whose wage of greater than £400,000 makes her the BBC’s eighth-highest earner, was changed by weatherman Owain Wyn Evans for her 4am-to-6.30am slot

Ms Cox (pictured), 47, who is paid up to £279,999, was replaced by Countryfile presenter Anita Rani

Ms Feltz, whose wage of greater than £400,000 makes her the BBC’s eighth-highest earner, was changed by weatherman Owain Wyn Evans for her 4am-to-6.30am slot. He is scheduled to face on this week too.

Wright, 67, the BBC’s fourth-highest-earning presenter who’s paid greater than £450,000, was lined by OJ Borg, 43, whose ordinary midnight-to-3am slot was stuffed by Phil Williams.

Ms Cox, 47, left, who’s paid as much as £279,999, was changed by Countryfile presenter Anita Rani and Ms Whiley, 57, missed her present on Monday. Pop star Jessie Ware stood in.

Ball was changed by Nicki Chapman final week.

The BBC mentioned final evening: ‘It’s ordinary at this time of year for presenters to take their summer time breaks and for his or her programmes to be hosted by a variety of sensible DJs.’
