Some celebrities' salaries are reportedly expected to fall due to the recession.

According to the Daily Mail, Myleene Klass is thought to have seen her paycheque reduce by 30%, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly's wages may plummet by a third while Jonathan Ross could be paid half the £6m he earns a year.

McPartlin said: "If we're offered less, so be it. For me it's all about the shows. I just want to make great shows and brilliant programmes and the money comes after that.”

Meanwhile, some stars' wages will rise despite the economic uncertainty.

X Factor judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh could see their salaries increase by 10-15%. Presenters Holly Willoughby, Fearne Cotton and Christine Bleakley are also believed to have increased their income.
