Ed Sheeran Tops Britain’s Under 30’s Rich List

Ed Sheeran has taken the top spot of Britain's under 30's Rich List for the third year running.

Heat Magazine's annual list of the richest young celebrities in Britain is now in its 11th year. The 'Shape of You' singer, 30, tops it again thanks to an increase in his estimated net worth over the past 12 months.

The new dad has just released his fourth studio album Equal (=) ahead of his first UK tour in four years.

Ed boasts the most-streamed single of all time with 'Shape of You' as well as the highest-grossing tour of all time.


What is Ed Sheeran's net worth in 2021?

Despite taking a sabbatical during lockdown to welcome his daughter into the world, Ed's net worth has increased in the past 12 months to a whopping £236.5m, according to Heat.

Who else is on the 2021 under 30's rich list?

Harry Styles remains the second-richest young celebrity

Harry Styles retains his number two position in the list with £80 million. Just after the One Direction split, Harry made £37 million on the Rich List.

He's since doubled that with his successful solo career and acting roles, as well as savvy investments, including a new live music arena in Manchester.

As well as music, Harry's unique gender-fluid dressing style has made him a bit of a fashion icon and landed him a lucrative promotion deal with Gucci promo.

Little Mix is in third place

Despite a rocky year for the Little Mix girls with Jesy Nelson's departure, lockdown, and two of the band members becoming first-time mums, Little Mix is another none-mover on Heat's Rich List this year, with a net worth of £66.7 million.


In the ten years since they won X Factor, they've sold more than 60 million records. 2020 was a bumper year for the girl group, despite the circumstances, with their new album Confetti, the BBC talent show Little Mix: The Search and a Brit award.

They've lent their name to everything from Gold Magic perfume to kids' clothes at Primark. And then there's the Instagram deals on top of that - it's estimated that Perri Edwards scooped £36,000 for the post announcing she was expecting a baby.

Having split from the band, solo artist Jesy Nelson finds herself as a new entry on the Rich List this year at number 19 with a net worth of £13.5 million.

Ex-1D member Niall Horan is in fourth place with a net worth of £57.5 million, while model Cara Delevingne rounds off the top five with turnover profits of £9.6 million in 2020.


Liberty Poole is this year's highest-earning Islander

Love Island's Liberty Poole was crowned the richest cast member from the hit ITV show this year, despite splitting from Jake and quitting the show a week before the final.

Liberty, who was a marketing student from Birmingham before going on the show, has already pocketed a £1 million deal with fashion brand In The Style as well as a six-figure contract with Skinny Tan.

She's also signed up for next year's Dancing On Ice and there's also her huge Instagram following, which could potentially earn her £24,000 from sponsored posts.
