The UK’s Sunday Time Rich List 2012

Here are a few little statistics that will either interest or irritate you. The UK newspaper the Sunday Times is releasing its annual yearly Rich List, a chart that lets the world know which UK citizens are the richest. Topping the musicians under 30 list, is none other than UK native and world favourite, Adele, with her estimated £20 million fortune.

Last year the Sunday Times Rich List only had Adele down as worth £6 million, but massive sales of her current album 21 (that is still selling well) have gained her another £14 million in the last 12 months alone. We’re hoping she has a secure Bullionvault , or at the very least a decent savings account for all that cash.

Her nearest competition in the chart are Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua, who are eight million below her at £12 million. Followed closely by Joss Stone at £10 million. Lily Allen, Natasha Bedingfield and Duffy round out the top ten with £6 million apiece.

The most striking thing about this chart is the significant lack of men on the musician top 10. Only Paolo Nutini and Craig David join the ladies with £8 million each.

Elsewhere in the acting category, the richest actor under the age of 30 is still Daniel Radcliffe. Thanks to his brand new horror, The Woman in Black, the 22 year old has gained funds up to £54 million. He is followed closely by his former Harry Potter 4 co-star and Twilight heart throb, Robert Pattinson, who is thought to have a fortune of £40 million.

Other figures include Keira Knightly with £30 million, Emma Watson who is sat snugly at number five with £26 million behind her, and Rupert Grint who follows at number six with £24 million.

For further examination, the Sunday Times Rich List 2012, will be published in full on the 29th April 2012.
