Girlband Little Mix - comprised of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards - are said to have a combined fortune of £50m, putting them in sixth place.

However, all their fortunes appear small fry when compared to that of Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and make-up entrepreneur Kylie Jenner, 22, whose £736m fortune is more than that of all of the top 10 entries combined. But as she is not British she is not included in the list.

In seventh and eighth place are One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, 27, and Liam Payne, 26, who are worth £46m and £44m respectively, while their bandmate Zayn Malik, 26, takes the tenth spot with £38m.

Ninth place goes to 27-year-old model and actress Cara Delevingne, who is thought to be worth £39.5m.
