Ed Sheeran has held onto the top spot in a list of the richest celebrities aged 30 and under in Ireland and the UK.

The Heat Rich List 2021, compiled by Heat Magazine, said the singer increased his estimated worth over the past 12 months to €278 million (£236.5 million).

It is the third time Sheeran, 30, has topped the rankings.

Former One Direction singer Harry Styles, 27, came second in the list with an estimated worth of €94 million (£80 million).

Heat Magazine said that, in addition to his career in the entertainment industries, he has made "savvy investments, including a new live music arena in Manchester".

"Harry's gender-fluid dressing style has made him a fashion darling and he has a lucrative Gucci promo deal," a statement added.

Pop group Little Mix came third as a collective with an estimated worth of €78.5 million (£66.7 million), while Styles' former One Direction bandmate, Niall Horan, was fourth with €67.6 million (£57.5 million).
