HE is the BBC’s highest-paid star, but Gary Lineker’s next gig will not be with the corporation.

The Match of the Day host has landed himself a presenting job on rival channel ITV, and it’s not his usual gig.

The MOTD host, 58, has agreed to work with rivals ITV despite being the BBC’s highest-paid star

Instead of discussing the day’s football with Alan Shearer and co, he is to front a “high stakes, high tension quiz”.

And it does have an appropriate name: Sitting On A Fortune.

Gary, paid £1.75million for his work on MOTD, is shooting a pilot for the potential series in Manchester the week after next.

A source said: “ITV have always been a great admirer of Gary’s work, so asked if he’d like to front a new pilot they’re recording with a view to a full series.

“It might raise a few eyebrows given how much he earns at the BBC, but he is allowed to work for other broadcasters.

“The quiz show in question will see contestants win a life-changing sum every single episode by answering tricky questions.”

Hopefully they’ll be better than the constant ones he gets about the Match of the Day running order.
