Xpose’s new stars Cassie Stokes and Ruth O’Neill are reportedly asking for a pay raise after finding out how much axed presenter Peter O’Riordan was making on the show.
The Cork native was working with TMZ before TV3 bosses enticed him over to the show with a salary of €75,000.
“Cassie and Ruth are both asking TV3 why they’re getting half what Peter was earning,” a source claimed.

The insider said that Cassie and Ruth make around €35,000 for their roles – less than half of what Peter had made.
“In the past few weeks, they have revitalised the Xposé brand and done endless promotion,” they told the Irish Sun.
“The advertisers are happy again so the girls want equal pay to what Peter was getting when the show was not doing so well.”
