Ed Sheeran is now UK’s richest star under 30 after taking the top spot from Adele. 

The 28-year-old singer who has had a successful year topped Heat magazine’s annual guide to the UK’s wealthiest stars aged 30 and under, having jumped from an estimated worth of £94 million in 2017 to £170 million.

Sheeran, who was in second place last year, took the first spot from fellow music star Adele as she turned 31 in May. She is no longer eligible for the accolade 

According to Standard UK, the increase in Sheeran’s wealth is partly due to his world record-breaking, highest-grossing two-year Divide Tour, which saw him play more than 250 shows to more than seven million fans since March 2017.

In addition, Sheeran’s songwriting efforts have helped him to shift 150 million records across the world for both himself and other artists including Justin Bieber, Anne-Marie and Rita Ora, bringing him substantial royalties.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 30, is at number two with an estimated wealth of £90 million. In third place is One Direction star Harry Styles, 25, who has an estimated fortune of £64 million.
