It was recently revealed that the Match Of The Day star had signed a new deal with the BBC that included a 23% pay cut.
He's claimed it "would really shock the public" to find out how much ITV presenters like Phillip Schofield are raking in compared to the BBC's stars.
The former England footballer is the broadcaster's highest paid star.
"You get that for your entire life being taken over," the former Top Gear host insisted.
Chris Evans was in second place, despite stepping down from the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show at the end of last year.
Unequal pay has created a "crisis of trust" at the broadcaster, damning report reveals.
The presenter was named the top-earning BBC star in 2017, and second-highest in 2018.
The broadcaster apologised last month.
The top 12 earners are all white men.
The practice allows both the BBC and the worker to pay less tax.
