  • Gary Lineker and Zoe Ball are now the highest earners on the star salaries list

His new salary will see him earn the same £1.36 million salary as Radio 2 host Zoe Ball.

The annual report, which covers April 2019 to March 2020, also revealed that over 90% of the United Kingdom population used the BBC each week.

However, Gary has happily signed a new five-year deal with the broadcaster, worth around £400,000.

"And before you ask, Gary knows his responsibility to the BBC in terms of his use of social media".

The pay cut will align Lineker's income with Radio 2 breakfast show host Zoe Ball, who received £1.36m a year ago according to the BBC's annual report, which states the salaries of all staff members earning above £150,000.

Gary Lineker will have to adhere to new BBC impartiality rules after signing a new five-year deal with the corporation.

"I love working with the BBC, and am very proud to continue to be a part of their outstanding football team", said Lineker.

"I'm looking forward to the next five years - with a European Championship and World Cup on the horizon, it's exciting times for me and the team".

The BBC said it had made continued progress on closing the gender pay gap, with a 55:45 split for men and women paid over 150,000 pounds, compared to a 75:25 gap in 2016/17.

Referring to the annual report, Julian Knight, member of parliament and committee chair for the government's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said, "Despite Gary Lineker's pay cut, when millions of pensioners are having to find extra cash to pay for the BBC and services they depend on, it's concerning to see not only has the bill for on-air talent grown by more than £1 million [$1.28 million] but that more than 100 senior executives are paid over £150,000 [$193,091] a year - in many cases considerably more than that".
