Los Angeles - One Direction make £19k a day each.

The Drag Me Down singers - who shot to fame after being mentored by Simon Cowell on The X Factor in 2010 - earn nearly £20k each every day according to their latest financial figures, which were published by Companies House.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Cynics have always described 1D as Simon Cowell's cash cow and, seeing these results, it's not hard to see why. There's no question bosses work the lads hard, but the financial rewards are astonishing.

"The band get very well paid, so they can hardly complain. They are easily Syco's biggest success story."

One Direction made an overall profit of £35m with their company 1D Media last year and although Zayn Malik abandoned bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson in favour of a solo career earlier this year, he too gets an equal amount having only quit the band in March.

However, despite their impressive earnings, the boys have decided to go on hiatus next year after releasing five albums and embarking on four tours in just five years.
