While Naga earns upwards of £365K, her old BBC Breakfast co-star Dan Walker only earned £220,000-£224,999 in 2021-2022.

His salary covered his stint on BBC One's Breakfast – before he left in April 2022, and his work on Football Focus before he left in June 2021.

Victoria Derbyshire earns more than Dan, with her salary for the last year being £240,000-£244,999 – which comprised of her work for BBC News Channel, BBC One, Panorama and some Radio 2 cover.

But Naga, Dan and Victoria's salaries aren't a patch on Gary Lineker's massive earnings for the past 12 months.

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker remains at the top of the list, with his salary coming in at £1.35 million.

Zoe Ball, from BBC Radio 2, comes in at the second highest earner – but the highest earning woman at the BBC, with her salary for the past year coming in at £980,000-£984,999.

And Fiona Bruce is the second highest earning woman at the BBC, with her earnings for the past year totalling to £410,000-£414,999.
