Adele has been given the prestigious title of the wealthiest singer in the UK under the age of 30.

The 23-year-old superstar has amassed a £20 million fortune and seen an increase of £14 million in the past 12 months alone.

The Sunday Times Rich List highlights the fact that the London-born performer's record-breaking album 21 has propelled her fortune at such a tender age.

Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, X Factor winner Leona Lewis and Katie Melua came in joint second place with £12 million. Joss Stone came in fifth place with her £10 million earnings.

Meanwhile, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 22, has been named the richest young British actor. He has raked in £54 million in total which is up £6 million from a year ago.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson is now sitting on a £40 million empire while Keira Knightley came in third place with £30 million. Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter Kiera Chaplin came in fourth with £28 million while Emma Watson rounded out the top five with £26 million.
