BBC pay 2021-2022: The full list of star salaries – BBC

The BBC has published the salaries of its highest-paid stars as part of its annual report.
Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker remains at the top of the list, earning £1.35m over the last financial year.
Radio 2's Zoe Ball is in second place. Her full-year pay dropped below £1m for the first time since taking over the station's Breakfast Show in 2019.
Not all earnings are published – for example, Graham Norton's fee for his BBC One chat show is not included because it is produced by a commercial company.
The stars of EastEnders, Top Gear and Strictly Come Dancing, which are made by commercial arm BBC Studios, are missing for similar reasons – although Claudia Winkleman's salary for her Radio 2 programme is listed.
With those caveats in mind, here are the presenters who earned above £150,000 last year, according to the BBC's accounts.
The ▼, ▲ andicons show whether their salary has moved up, down or remained the same. A icon represents a presenter making a new appearance or re-entry into the list.
