Britain's richest celebrities under 30 revealed
Adele has more than doubled her worth to be crowned the richest British celebrity under 30, beating One Direction’s stars.
The singer is ranked top of Heat magazine’s annual list, with an estimated worth of £92m – up from fourth place with £38m last year.
“Adele has been unstoppable this year with her album release and stadium tour,” said Suzy Cox, editor of Heat magazine.
“So it comes as no shock that she has come out on top.”
She is followed by Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, whose worth is estimated at £74m.
Singer Ed Sheeran takes third place, with a £45m estimated fortune.
Heat magazine looks at endorsement deals, television contracts, movie profits and record sales to determine the wealth of each celebrity.
This is the sixth year the celebrity issue has released the list – compiled by a number of industry experts.
It is also the first year boy band One Direction feature in their solo capacities, after topping the list for three years as one.
Zayn Malik, the first 1D to go solo, is currently the wealthiest former member of the group in fourth position with £38m.
Malik is followed closely by Harry Styles. The singer turned actor is currently working with Hollywood director Christopher Nolan in his new war film Dunkirk and holds fifth position on the list at £37m.
“Despite their break-up, the One Direction boys have managed to stay in the top ten,” Cox said.
“But it will be interesting to see where they all stand next year after the release of their solo material.”

The next female celebrity in the list is former Harry Potter star and UN ambassador Emma Watson in number six with £35m.
This year the list also includes the international top five wealthiest celebrities under 30, topped by American singer Taylor Swift with an estimated £192m fortune – more than double Adele’s net worth.
Another new addition is the Billion Dollar Babies – which, according to Cox, “takes a look at the tots who were born with a platinum spoon in their mouths”.
Princess Charlotte is reportedly worth £3.2bn to the UK economy and boosts the sales of baby brands more than any other famous baby.
As for the ‘Insta-preneurs’ – celebrities which profit the most with their social media activity – singer Selena Gomez ranks number one internationally.
