At the age of just 22, Daniel Radcliffe, made famous for his role in the J K Rowling Harry Potter films, has an estimated fortune of £51.7 million, and that fortune has increased by £6.1 million in the past year alone.

 

Radcliffe, who earned a huge £25 million for The Deathly Hallows film sits head and shoulders above the rest of the stars on the list including his Harry Potter co stars Emma Watson – worth an estimated £23.9 million - and Rupert Grint – worth an estimated £21.7 million - who sit at numbers four and five respectively on the rich list.

But it was not just actors who made the list; Leona Lewis, Adele, Florence and the Machine and the entire Girls Aloud pop band also featured on the chart, and despite the fact that Cheryl Cole was dropped from US X Factor this year she is still worth a whopping £11.4 million compared to bandmates Kimberley Walsh (£5.3m) and Nicola Roberts (£4.2m).

Opera star Katherine Jenkins and model Kelly Brook both failed to make the rich list this year after exceeding the 30-year-old age limit, while Amy Winehouse, who ranked at number 15 last year with £7.8 million, tragically passed away in July.
