Gary Lineker is the BBC's best-paid presenter on an annual salary of £1.75-£1.78 million.

The Match Of The Day host is the biggest earner, taking home between £1.75 million and £1,759,999.

Lineker is followed by Chris Evans on £1,660,000-1,669,999.

A year ago the BBC's top seven biggest earners were all men - but this figure increased to 12 in 2017/2018. His World Cup colleague, Alan Shearer, earns £410,000-419,999.

However, the list does not include the BBC's best paid actors and comedians.

Out of the 64 names on this year's list of top-earning stars, 22 were women. She was on £150,000-£199,999 a year ago.

Women who are on the list of stars earning more than £150,000 this year and appear to have received pay rises include Newsnight's Emily Maitlis.

The BBC's list includes presenters from news, sport, radio, and some TV entertainment shows.

The director of BBC Northern Ireland Peter Johnston was paid between £150,000 and £159,999 during the year. However, her salary has dropped from past year, when she was on £450,000-£500,000.

The BBC is the United Kingdom's largest broadcaster.

It catapulted the broadcaster into turmoil, with respected China editor Carrie Gracie resigning over unequal pay. Jeremy Vine and John Humphrys also saw their pay dip since the previous financial year.

Some people fell down the list because they work for programmes made by BBC Studios, which is now considered a commercial entity and therefore does not have to disclose what it pays.

The BBC recently published figures showing it had reduced its gender pay gap by almost a fifth.

Speaking at a press conference, BBC Director-General Tony Hall said: "It's not a 60/40 gender pay gap, I'm saying that of the figures of men versus women, who are now paid over £150,000 a year, you've got 60 per cent men and 40 per cent women".
