Some of us can only dream of being young and rich. It really is a combo that only a small select few in the world possess. And that select few are most notably those who appear on the 30 under 30 rich list – which has just been released for 2021.

Heat Magazine has just released its latest instalment of The Heat Rich List – with the top 30 including huge names from the world of music, reality TV and film.

Everyone’s fav girl band are worth £66.7million collectively. In the past, just one tour alone for the girls has bagged them £17million. You love to see it. In the ten years since they won X Factor, they’ve sold more than 60million records.

Surprise, surprise – Ed Sheeran is top of the list once again. But nobody stands a chance catching up with his net worth. He’s held the 30 under 30 rich list top spot for three years running now, and I’m sorry but this kind of net worth belongs to tech moguls and Jeff Bezos only. This is unreal.

A decade on from when he released his first solo single, Ed now boasts the most-streamed single of all time with Shape of Youand the highest-grossing tour of all time (£567m for the ÷ tour).
