Little Britain stars: how much am I bid?
If British tabloid newspapers had a collective motto, it would be 'never let the facts get in the way of a good story'. Today they've gone all out to trump each other when it comes to disclosing how much the BBC will pay Little Britain stars to develop new material exclusively for the corporation. The Sun starts the bidding with £3 million each for the comic pair's three-year deal.The Daily Star and the Daily Mail call that a £6 million golden handcuffs contract. But the Daily Mirror outdoes the competition by claiming Walliams and Lucas will get £10 million from the deal. They can't all be right, can they?
