Richard Hammond and James May have agreed new pay deals to remain as presenters on Top Gear, a report claims.
According to The Sun, Hammond is currently paid £15,000 per show and May £10,000. Both will now receive between £20,000 and £25,000, sources told the newspaper.
"Their agents wanted them to get a larger slice of the pie but the BBC only had a finite amount it was prepared to offer," one insider is quoted as saying.
"The Beeb and the agents have finally found some common ground and contracts should be signed within days."
