The Crown is at the centre of a gender pay row

talkRADIO presenter Harriet Minter has said it is ridiculous that Claire Foy earns less than co-star Matt Smith for The Crown.

The host of our Badass Women's Hour show spoke to Julia Hartley-Brewer after it emerged that the female lead on the hit Netflix show earns far less than her male counterpart.

Minter said the disparity "does not stack up" given that Foy's profile matched Smith's by the start of the second series.

She added that many women don't realise how much men get paid, and this may explain the imbalance on The Crown.
