One Direction top of the under-30 rich list
One Direction have been named top of Britain’s Under-30s Rich List despite Zayn Malik leaving the band earlier this year. The four piece boy band hold on to the title of the richest under 30s in Britain in Heat magazine’s annual list, topping the chart for the third year running. The estimated combined fortune of the group is around £82.08 million, an increase of £4.56 million from last year. Zayn Malik, who left One Direction in March, also made the Rich List, coming in at number 8 with an individual earning of about £20.52 million.
Actors Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson trail the group in second and third place, with Adele taking fourth place with an estimated worth of £38.1 million. Other stars in the top 10 include Harry Potter actors Emma Watson and Rupert Grint and singing sensation Ed Sheeran, with Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and band Mumford & Sons completing the top 10.
The 30-strong list will appear in this week’s issue of Heat magazine and includes some newcomers to the list this year such as Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, Ellie Goulding and Jack Whitehall.
