Forsyth: 'I've been paid too much'

Bruce Forsyth has said that he has taken a pay cut but is still being paid too much money.

The 81-year-old Strictly Come Dancing presenter told Newsnight that stars have always been overpaid.

In June, the BBC warned stars including Forsyth and Sir Terry Wogan to expect their salaries to be cut when their contracts were renewed as part of the corporation's plan to save money.
