The Pointless presenter, 51, made the revelation on Twitter.
Bradley, 61, has been fronting the popular ITV quiz show for years.
As a result, Richard reckons he’s doing very nicely.
£375,000 a week. Wow. Haaland is on, what we call in the business ‘Bradley Walsh money’.

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’.”
The pair have fronted rival shows on BBC One and ITV for years.
Subsequently, fans flocked to social media lapping up Richard’s ‘revelation’.
One wrote: “Hahaha. You get what you pay for.”
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.

After 13 years, Richard announced he was quitting Pointless in April.
The quiz buff has been a great companion for his co-presenter Alexander Armstrong.
The father-of-two told viewers his time on the show had been a “joy”.
He tweeted: “Thank you to everyone who watches, it really has been a dream, and I know the show will continue to go from strength to strength.”
