The BBC has said that it wants an equal number of male and female expert contributors to appear on its programmes by April 2019.

The broadcaster hopes for a 50:50 split of expert voices across its airwaves in news, current affairs and a range of topical programmes.

In recent months, it was revealed that there was a gender pay gap of 9.3 per cent between its top-paid employees.

Over 80 programmes, including The One Show and BBC News at Six, are now striving towards equality.
