Los Angeles - One Direction have been named the Richest British Stars Under 30 for the third consecutive year.

The Night Changes hitmakers - Liam Payne, 22, Louis Tomlinson, 23, Harry Styles, 21, and Niall Horan, 22, - retained the top spot in heat magazine's annual list thanks to an estimated collective fortune of £82.08m, up £456m from last year.

And though Zayn Malik, 22, may have quit the group earlier this year, he has stayed on the list, taking the number eight spot with estimated individual earnings of £20.52m.

Elsewhere on the list, 26-year-old actor Daniel Radcliffe retained second place with £65.8m, and his former Harry Potter co-star Robert Pattinson stayed in third place with £51.04m.

A third star from the wizarding franchise, Emma Watson, 25, also earned a place in the top five, thanks to estimated earnings of £35.33m.

Hello hitmaker Adele, 27, placed fourth, one higher than last year, with an estimated £38.1m.

This year's highest new entry came in at number six, with 24-year-old singer Ed Sheeran, who earned an estimated £35.2m.

New entries this year included Writing's On The Wall singer Sam Smith at number 16, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the 26th spot, one place ahead of fellow newcomer Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Bridges at 28, Ellie Goulding in 29th position and comic-and-actor Jack Whitehall, who completed the list at number 30.

To compile the list, a panel of industry experts analysed the stars' financial dealings, including their TV shows, movies, record sales and product endorsements.

Each entry has to be an entertainer, under the age of 30 and born in, or chiefly reside in, the UK.
