The BBC has spent £120,000 redecorating two floors of its Broadcasting House headquarters – just six months after the building was opened by the Queen in June 2013.

The sixth and seventh floors – home to top executives such as £244,000-a-year BBC One controller Charlotte Moore and £247,000-a-year head of drama Ben Stephenson – were refurbished with scenes and sets from the corporation’s top shows such as EastEnders.

The Sun submitted a Freedom of Information request and learned that the decorating, which took place in December last year cost £60,000 per floor.
