Natasha Kaplinsky takes £300,000 pay cut for more baby time.

The Five news reader will no longer take home £1 million pay cheque.


New mum Natasha, 36, has been hosting the 5pm news show but skipping the 7pm bulletin since returning to work after baby Arlo’s birth eight months ago.


It was planned that she would return to both segments and keeping her £1million salary, but the devoted mum decided that her son, Arlo took priority and agreed to cut her wage to continue working part time.

The hunt is now on for a new TV presenter to replace Natasha on the 7pm slot.


What do you think? Have you taken a pay cut to spend more time with your baby, or is it just not an option for you? Let us know below…
