Ed Sheeran has retained his place at the top of heat magazine’s Rich List for a second year. The 29-year-old singer/songwriter has been named the wealthiest celebrity under 30, according to the annual guide to the UK and Ireland’s richest young stars.

Ed keeps his title after increasing his estimated worth by £40m in the past 12 months to a whopping £210m (around R4 billion).

Harry Styles takes second place with £74m in heat magazine’s Rich List 2020. The 26-year-old star added £40m to his One Direction earnings since going solo, thanks to the US chart-topping album ‘Fine Line’, a £45m-grossing world tour and his lucrative Gucci deal.

‘Harry Potter‘ actress Emma Watson is in third place, thanks to her fortune from the movie franchise, along with £17m from 2017’s Beauty and The Beast. Lucrative deals with Lancôme, Burberry and Chanel, and a role on the board at Kering, the £14 billion fashion giant have contributed to her estimated fortune of £58m.

Irish singer/songwriter Niall Horan, 27, is in fourth position with earnings of £55m thanks to two big-selling solo albums and a successful tour.
