BBC Studios makes shows such as EastEnders, Top Gear and Strictly Come Dancing and it’s stars keep their salaries under a cloak of secrecy as rules on transparency are only required on the BBC’s public service arm.

Campaign group Defund the BBC has acted with anger, telling the Daily Express: “As a public service broadcaster the BBC has a right to tax people for watching any live TV.”

“With that right comes obligations including impartiality and transparency”

“If the BBC wishes to hide what it pays Lineker, it must be stripped of its right to tax. It can’t have it both ways.” added the group.
