Adele has topped a rich list of young British musicians.

The 23-year-old singer came out number one on the list - which was compiled by The Sunday Times and consists of musicians under the age of 30 - with an estimated worth of £20 million (€24.25m).

Her 2011 earnings were estimated to be £6 million, before her second album 21 sold over 20 million copies worldwide later in the year.

In joint second place on the rich list were Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua, who have accumulated £12 million fortunes.

In fifth position is singer Joss Stone with £10 million, and Charlotte Church, Paolo Nutini and Craig David came in joint sixth with £8 million.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been named the UK's richest actor, with an estimated fortune of £54m (€65.47m), up from 48m (€58.2m) in 2011, with Twilight star Robert Pattinson following in second place.

The Sunday Times Rich List will be published in full on April 29.
