The sum was made up of his £651,000 salary and a bonus also worth around £651,000.

However, owner Mahmud Kamani, who co-founded the company in 2006, took home £1 million, after receiving an annual bonus worth 100% of his salary.
The payouts came despite Boohoo diving into a £90 million loss in its full-year results ended 28 February 2023, compared to a pre-tax profit of £7.8 million in the same period last year.
Revenues slipped by 11% in the period from £1.98 billion to £1.77 billion, however, this figure is still ahead of the £1.23 billion the fashion retailer reported in 2020.
At the time, Lyttle said: “We will deliver sustainable returns on these investments.
“We will continue to give our customers the latest trends, outstanding value and a great experience. Our confidence in the medium-term prospects for the group remains unchanged, and as we execute on our key priorities we see a clear path to improved profitability and getting back to double-digit revenue growth.
Recently, the company also asked for a 10% discount on both delivered and undelivered clothing in a bid to cut costs in its supply chain, as well as asking suppliers in Turkey to revise some already agreed prices following recent benchmark changes achieved in Pakistan.
