One Direction join rich list with £26m fortune

Chart stars One Direction have soared into an under-30s British rich list, knocking off Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint.

The quintet are listed at number five in a weekly magazine's annual Rich List, with a combined worth of £26.33 million, while Rupert who held the spot last year is down to seven.


However another Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe continues to dominate the chart with his £53.33 million fortune.

The list - based on estimates of their financial dealings - sees British Twilight actor Robert Pattinson move up to number two with £38.73 million, pushing Keira Knightley into third spot with £32.7 million.

Unsurprisingly Adele, who recently gave birth to her first child, has had a massive rise - up ten places - and is said to be worth £26.06 million.


One Direction, like Adele, have become worldwide stars and conquered the US earlier this year with their debut album Up All Night.

Girls Aloud are estimated to be the biggest earning group under 30 with a combined £35.16 million, however they have been listed individually because of their individual careers, despite reuniting to celebrate their tenth anniversary.
