The Chase is easily one of the most popular shows in the country, so it makes sense that its host is well paid.
Not only has Bradley Walsh fronted the reality quiz series for over a decade, but he's also fronted a number of other UK shows, including the new spin-off show Beat The Chasers, appeared on Coronation Street and was once a pro footballer and recording artist.
It's a career spanning 40 years, so it's no surprise he has become Britain's top TV earner, with a massive net worth of £20million (NZ$39million) - overtaking This Morning's Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
The latest accounts for the 61-year-old shows his earnings were up £1million on the previous year.
A source told the The Mirror: "Bradley is such a popular star on ITV, in particular, that it’s little wonder that he has the potential to earn so much money."
It marks an astonishing level of success for the TV presenter who was living in a £98,000 (NZ$188,000) terraced house in East London over 20 years ago.
He now owns a five-bedroom mansion with a pool in Essex, having sold his last home for £2.45million (NZ$4.7million) seven years ago.
