Chris Moyles is topping up his six figure salary with an extra 75,000 - just for playing his jingles. The 32 year old Radio 1 breakfast host is reportedly getting 15 royalties per play - because he writes the lyrics. Last year he played them 5,000 times.

One jingle brags "Chris Moyles on Radio 1...He ain't good-looking but hey, he's rich". Previous reports from leaked BBC figures showed Moyles earns 630,000 a year for his breakfast show.

Chris composes the quirky sung jingles with production firm Music 4. The Performing Right Society then charges the BBC 15 a time and passes it on to him.

John Whittingdale, head of the Commons Culture select committee, told The Mirror: "The BBC is already paying him a hefty salary and he is able to earn even more at the touch of a button. There seems to be a clear conflict of interests here and it seems completely inappropriate."

A Radio 1 spokesman said: "He writes jingles and receives payment when they are played. This is completely legitimate. But we refute any suggestion that he is playing them more frequently."

And a BBC governors' spokeswoman added: "Chris Moyles would be subject to editorial guidelines, which he would have to adhere to."

Now buy his book then he will get even richer. Didn't all the Ex R1 DJ's get rich in one way on another with other interests? Nothing new as it happens in the radio world and he's thinking about his future!! Still think he shouldn't get paid that sort of money talking aload of rubbish on air every morning ,when others work harder than he will ever. Well thats the BBC.. and we are full sitting back and letting them getting away with it.

He's not alone. The more rubbish you talk on air the more (it seems) you get paid. Think of Messrs Evans, Brand, Woss, O'Dreary....... etc.

Absolutely. All experienced and knowledgeable (and widely respected) broadcasters who don't shout at their listeners. Well observed sir.

Maybe I am getting old, but I just cant see why Moyles appeals to anyone.
