The salaries of TV’s highest paid stars have been revealed, and gay celebs are raking in the most.

Variety has released the figures, showing how much stars receive per each episode they make.

The astronomical figures being earned by stars will stun many.

TV’s Jim Parsons, star of the Big Bang Theory, gets paid an incredible $1m for every episode of the show he makes.

Meanwhile Jesse Tyler Ferguson walks away with a pretty tidy $250,000 per episode of Modern Family.

There’s no shortage of money in the chat show rankings either.

Everyone’s favourite daytime talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, gets an incredible $20m a year for interviewing the likes of President Obama.

Andy Cohen is on around $5m for his hanging out with Mariah Carey.

While Miley Cyrus, never shy of publicity to justify her pay pack, takes almost $15m for her judging on The Voice.
