It was just over a year ago that the presenter caused great controversy over the calls that he made alomg with Russell Brand to Andrew Sachs.Although Brand resigned,Ross was suspended for eight weeks.
There has been controversy over his salary.It was reported that the BBC's Director-General Mark Thompson wanted the star to take a large paycut.There have been rumours that many BBC executives were determined to solve the Ross pay problem once and for all.
