'Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has agreed a £400,000 pay cut, the BBC has revealed as it publishes the latest list of its best-paid presenters.
Lineker was the highest-earning star with an unchanged salary of £1.75m in the 2019/20 financial year.
But he has since signed a new contract, which will see that fee cut by 23%.
That means he could earn less than Zoe Ball next year. The Radio 2 presenter has seen her pay rise by £1m since taking over the breakfast show in 2019.
Fiona Bruce and Lauren Laverne have also moved into the top 10 of the highest-paid stars, which features four women for the first time. Vanessa Feltz is also among the top earners, the corporation's annual report shows.'
