Chris Evans could see his £12,000-a-night One Show pay packet halved by bosses at the BBC.
The DJ and host of Friday's one-hour-long episode of the BBC magazine show, alongside Alex Jones, could see his salary significantly reduced when the show is halved to only 30-minutes-long, reports The Sun.
It's thought the hour-long episode could be moved to Wednesday night to boost the Beeb's mid-week schedule when ITV swaps Coronation Street to the same evening in the autumn.
Evans, who also presents the Radio 2 breakfast show, will be spoken to about the cut once the move is confirmed, a BBC source told the newspaper.
This is the latest potentially turbulent change for the beleaguered One Show.
Evans took on the role as Friday host in 2010, a decision which is reported to have led the former host Adrian Chiles to ditch his post as the show's regular presenter and move to ITV. His co-host Christine Bleakley followed suit shortly afterwards, when the BBC withdrew their contract offer to keep her.

The duo went on to present ITV's Daybreak, formerly GMTV, but ratings plummeted and they were both unceremoniously removed from their early morning sofa.
In May 2010, comedian Jason Manford was confirmed as Chiles' replacement as co-host for Monday-Thursday. However, after just four months in the post, Manford stepped down from his presenting duties, following revelations concerning his private life and some very naughty Twitter messages to fans.
The programme is now hosted by Countryfile's Matt Baker and Jones during the week, but whether they would receive a pay rise for the extra half-an-hour on a Wednesday nights has not been revealed. Who'd have thought the 7pm magazine slot could be so contentious? It was never like this when Nationwide was on the box...
