LONDON – British singer Adele has knocked One Direction off the top spot after their three-year run in first place to become the richest British celebrity under 30.

Adele is now reported to have an estimated £92m in the bank, the Newsbeat reported.

Last year the 28-year-old was in fourth place on Heat’s list of the 30 richest British stars under 30. The magazine’s annual list has ex-Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 27, in second place with an estimated £74m.


Ed Sheeran, 25, is a new entry in third place, with an estimated fortune of £45m.


One Direction now feature on the list individually but before they counted as a band, which is why they always topped the list.


Former member Zayn Malik, 23, is in fourth position behind Ed Sheeran with £38m.


Harry Styles, 22, is in fifth with £37m, while Liam Payne, 23, is in seventh (£34m), Niall Horan, 23, is in eighth (£34m) and Louis Tomlinson, 24, is in ninth (£33m).

Another former Harry Potter star, Emma Watson, 26, is at number six with £35m while 28-year-old Rupert Grint finishes the top 10 on £29m.


This is the sixth year the celebrity magazine has released the list, which is compiled by a number of industry experts.

The panel looks at endorsement deals, TV contracts, film profits and record sales to estimate the wealth of each celebrity.
