Grammy winning-singer Ed Sheeran has retained his crown as the richest British celebrity aged 30 and under, with an overall worth estimated to have reached 236.5 million pounds. Ed Sheeran, who is 30, boasts the most-streamed single of all time with ‘Shape of You’, as well as the highest-grossing tour of all time, reports femalefirst.co.uk. The chart-topping star recently released his highly-anticipated new album, ‘=’.
Ed Sheeran tops the list ahead of Harry Styles, who first found fame as part of One Direction and has subsequently enjoyed success as a solo artist. The 27-year-old singer, whose overall worth is estimated to be 80 million pounds, has also starred in ‘Dunkirk’ and the new Marvel movie ‘Eternals’.
Little Mix is in third place on the list. The girl group – who were formed on ‘The X Factor’ in 2011 – lost Jesy Nelson as a band member in December last year, when she admitted that being in Little Mix had “taken a toll on (her) mental health”. Meanwhile, the fourth position in the list is occupied by Niall Horan and the fifth place is occupied by model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne.
Other big-name stars in the top ten include Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne – both of whom are estimated to be worth 47 million pounds – Dua Lipa (43.5 million pounds), Zayn Malik (38 million pounds) and Sam Smith (36.8 million pounds).
Meanwhile, the cyclist Laura Kenny has been named as the richest British sportswomen, according to heat magazine’s Rich List 2021. And Kylie Jenner has retained her title of being the wealthiest under-30 celebrity outside the UK, with her personal fortune.
