Speaking at the launch of the report, Mr Davie said: “I will not give information on the details of the conversations. All I would say is I think everyone recognizes the strategy, which is of value to the audience and, without being funny, most conversations are mutual and constructive.

“Now, clearly as a management team, we want to get more value and we are ready to make tough decisions to that extent.

“I think those conversations have all been constructive, like with Zoe Ball where she came forward and said she wanted to adjust the pay. I think everyone absolutely agrees with the program on this one. “

Graham Norton came out of the top 10 after leaving the BBC late last year.

The top 10 employees who saw their wages frozen or cut were Steve Wright, Huw Edwards, Fiona Bruce, Lauren Laverne, Vanessa Feltz and Alan Shearer.
