Richard was tweeting about Manchester City’s new signing Erling Haaland when he made a reference to the presenter’s pay check.

There are rumours the footballer is on a whopping £375,000 a week.

Teasing the host, Richard posted: “£375,000 a week. Wow. Haaland is on, what we call in the business ‘Bradley Walsh money’.”

Another joked: “Bradley Walsh’s daily wage and a footballers weekly wage isn’t a fair comparison.”

While The Chase’s Mark Labbett, aka The Beast, teased: “If you are trying to stir things up in Chase land, you have succeeded :).”

Of course it’s not known how much The Chase stars are on.

However Mark, Shaun Wallace, Anne Hegerty, Jenny Ryan and Paul Sinha are all said to have made millions from the show.

ED! has contacted ITV for comment.

Happily, Richard isn’t going far.

He will still be hosting Pointless Celebrities and his BBC Two show, Richard Osman’s House of Games.

As for his replacement on Pointless, there are a host of celebs lined up for guest appearances.
