Zoe Ball 'to ask BBC for pay cut' after being 'uncomfortable' with £1m rise which made her the top earner https://t.co/ORY5NaHKv9
Radio 2's Zoe Ball is seeking a cut in her vast £1.36million pay package. It's not her fault she overpaid but that of her half witted BBC bosses who are able throw OUR hard earned money at every ho hum talent without having to face any financial consequence. #DefundTheBBC
Instead of hurting the public every time cuts are needed - how about just reduce Gary Lineker's or Zoe Ball's salary by £125m and problem sorted instantly. @BBC News - Coronavirus: BBC 'needs to make £125m savings this year' https://t.co/TUtQ02mhcp

@herboo44 @Walk_0ff @BarnieChoudhury @KSonpal @GordonMuvuti @MatthiasOphelia @JonBashford @LordKPatel Yes, so does my pocket when they start begging for TV license to give to the Zoe Ball feed me charity.
@TedCrilly13 What was the justification for giving zoe ball a 200% plus payrise?
@toryboypierce As an 89 year old pensioner just starting to pay for a licence I am most happy to think they need me to contribute to her salary. Who is Zoe Ball?
I’ve just read the 2020 list of BBC salaries. I recently heard new BBC DG say we would be surprised to see a woman in the top 4. What he should have said was we would be shocked. I shall never listen to Zoe Ball again and if I had the choice I wouldn’t watch BBC tv again.
@GrahamJ18821678 Zoe Ball as she'll have to do something for the extra pay.
Zoe Ball’s £1 million salary hike is so outrageous that even Zoe Ball wants it slashed! 😳 Agree that BBC star salaries need to be cut? Sign our petition! 👇 https://t.co/Wq2E6PMSxl
@Holycow Taking Zoe off this thread, as this may be like watching grass grow. With a driver? 250-270 yards if I catch it properly. I am much more of a woods player than an iron player. I sweep the ball vs. hitting down into it.
@amckeag1978 I think most people wouldn’t care if Zoe Ball and Gary Lineker got paid £3m each at the BBC as long as the licence fee was not used to pay them.
@dgpLIVEUK They have gone down a little from Chris Evans time but not fallen of a cliff. But let's face it Chris Evans moves to Virgin and he now on gets 1 million listeners vs 6 million + of Zoe Ball. Chris is probably being paid about £3 million a year at Virgin.
@amckeag1978 You said he takes the licence payers money to be on the BBC, that’s hardly the same as Zoe Ball getting paid £1.7m especially when her shows ratings have fallen off a cliff and the new Eastenders set costing £87m, they are wasting money.
Unbelievable Zoe Ball awarded £1 million rise for losing 1 million listeners & Lineker doing tax avoidance whilst lecturing us . Very BBC https://t.co/sTMI6Eh6gI

@JonahDispatch *Zoe: Pip do u ever look at the sky and think it is an illusion and there is nothing above us for millions of miles? *Pippa: ball?
@JonahDispatch I have every confidence that Zoë can adequately patrol gritty back alleys. I'm not sure Pippa would be quite as good at it. So, what does Pippa do with her ball in the gritty back alleys of Northwest Washington? Just carry it around?
@Aiannucci Wrong tense. This is the organisation that nowadays wastes millions on failures like Zoe Ball and obnoxious half-wits such as Lineker.
@teresadg0 So ...no change at the BBC. And the defence of Zoe Ball’s ridiculous salary - in the time when many people are losing their jobs too. Still the out-of- touch arrogant organisation that it has been save the 1990’s. And on this showing alone, he should resign.
@WestminsterWAG Your comment in today’s D Mail about Zoe ball deserving credit is bollocks. Ball only agreed to reduce bbc salary after her inflated salary was published. Ball continues to spout tedious teenage rubbish on radio 2 every day and should be fired.

@BBCRadio2 is on 🙌 ..... with Zoe Ball, waiting for the one and only Mr @GaryBarlow 😍 to hear his exciting news and new single 🙌😊... at last some happy and good news ! Xxx
Chavs are boasting to millionaire chav Zoe Ball about taking the kids to school while still in their pyjamas. @BBCRadio2’s standards are in the gutter.
@ariaclast @robcmorgan Entirely correct. The reason Ball was paid less is because the BBC realised it had made a mistake with Evans. There are plenty of replacement male presenters who are paid less than their predecessors too, which is fine. But Zoe was a woman, so it became a thing.
@ArianaGrande made me into @ladygaga , I’m going to the chromatica ball in Paris it feels weird now imagine not being a little monster
@tonyblackburn @BBCR1 Loved hearing Arnold on Zoe Ball's piece this morning. A much-missed mastiff.

In case you missed it: Reports say Zoe Ball to ask the BBC for a pay cut
@TheGuideLpool Zoe Ball in Lime Street station and Tom Conti inJohn Lewis
Zoe Ball certainly is exceptional broadcaster @BBCRadio2 She’s managed to outdo @didoharding abysmal track record Dido lost 95,000 customers Zoe’s lost you over 1,000,000 Exceptional indeed No surprise if @MattHancock head hunt’s her to take over Test & Waste service 🆘❌🆘❌🆘
@ARSENALDvbrisG It amazes me that anyone at the BBC has a salary of one million pounds a year - especially Zoe Ball. Frankly, if she earned £200,000 a year I'd count her lucky. She's not alone though; plenty of moderately talented media types on massively bloated salaries at the Beeb.
@britishgirlxrp @BallsSoar And yet there’s no change. They introduced positive discrimination of white men applying for internships, they demote and then lose their most impartial presenter in Andrew Neil, cough up a pay rise for Zoe Ball with dropping ratings. They’re charlatans at worst, idiots at best

@seandunderdale @BBCRadioLincs What do you expect when they found out someone listens to Zoe Ball, and someone cheats at Dunders numbers. They're ****** outraged 😃😃
@darrengrimes_ If you watched the meeting you would conclude the new boss is hot air and feels the BBC is the best thing since slides bread, deluded ,said Zoe ball was amazing 🤔

@mrdanwalker Yes. Cos you are as rubbish at golf as you are presenting. Ripping off taxpayer. Did you seek a reduction on salary like Linekar and Zoe Ball? It should be mandatory by BBC.
@talkRADIO @ResistanceUkip @THEJamesWhale @BrexitAlex @neilwallis1 BBC argument is that is the going rate for Zoe Ball. Question is would any other broadcaster match her salary. Who else is after her services willing to pay close to that salary.
@fifiglover @janegarvey1 On the other hand you both got totally name-checked by Zoe Ball this morning.
Zoe ball gets £1.3 m a year and the BBC want pensioners to pay the license fee. 🤔
@MrJohnNicolson @BBC @CommonsDCMS Why does Zoe Ball earn 3x what Ken Bruce does?

@BBCNews What criteria will be used to assess impartiality? A monologue about Gary Lineker with a weird aside about Zoe Ball isn’t a clear set of guidelines.
Who's more important - Charles Moore or Tim Davie? How many chiefs does #BBC need? Who gets to sack people? Which previous chief gave Zoe Ball such a huge undeserved pay rise? #wato

@DefundBBC What we should be putting to the new #BBC DG: "Is Lineker's BBC income worth 8,571 pensioners' licence fees a year and Zoe ball's 8,635?
@robcmorgan But in this case Chris Evans *obviously* wasn't worth the pay, because Zoe Ball is willing to do the same job for massively less. So the problem was Chris Evans' pay, not Zoe Ball's
@LBC @steveallenshow select committee v BBC DG. Q. How come Zoe Ball is paid so much when she lost 1m listeners but is paid more than the next three presenters together? A. Nothing only she was worth the money. You could not make it up!
@robcmorgan It's not about paying less, but not overpaying. If Zoe Ball can do Chris Evans' job just as well and asks a million quid less, then why the fuck did they hire him on that money in the first place? The answer, of course, is that they're spending someone else's money
@CommonsDCMS @BrineMP @julianknight15 @MrJohnNicolson @DamianHinds @KevinBrennanMP @JulieElliottMP @AlexDaviesJones @GilesWatling @CliveEfford @PhilipDaviesUK Just saw you, pulling him on Zoe Ball, heard his total bull💩 answering, he's an opportunist who came from marketing, trying to pull the wool, his answers were, stammering,and not direct, fighting for a way out, disgusting toad on £500k, Zoe Ball has no talent, infuriating gobby
Tim Davie defends Zoe Ball’s £1.36m salary: though “very uncomfortable territory”, the BBC has always paid serious money for high-end TV entertainment and the main breakfast show "Zoe is an exceptional broadcaster and offers value", he says, though contracts are in renegotiation
There's some guy on the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee gunning for Zoe Ball and her salary - he's then told by Julie Elliott she believes she's paid 'a lot less than the previous presenter'
Steve Brine has moved on to demanding to know why Zoe Ball is paid so much. You might think committee members should be annoyed at the systemic gender pay gap, which hit women hardest, but no
@GMB @RichardAArnold Can't have been that exclusive because he was on Zoe Ball's programme on @BBCRadio2 this morning.
@MSANNCOOPER The reason the BBC still employs Lineker, has just given Zoe Ball a a million pound pay rise, is set to sack the hugely popular current Question of Sport team and recently lost 250,000 subscribers and counting is because they are completely out of touch with reality.
The British don't forget or forgive. Every £ of her salary is a £ off the over 70's free TV licence that was. I just envisage an elderly guy with no contact with the outside..... thank you ...ZOE BALL and BBC @DefundBBC https://t.co/yqbnSBjpRv

@ify_zoe Laca was also the one who scored our only goal. How many times did the ball get to Auba? These are the issues, beyond converting chances, you also need to create a lot. Since they've concluded Özil won't play, sign players that can do the job if not we'll suffer this season
