Adele named richest young musician in the UK

Adele has topped a list of the richest young musicians in the UK.

The 'Someone Like You' star came out trumps on a list compiled by the Sunday Times, with Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua all coming joint second.

This time last year Adele's fortune was only valued at £6m - but it is now estimated at £20m following the release of her massive album '21'.

All joint second artists on the list have an estimated value of £12m, whilst fifth placed Joss Stone is thought to have a fortune of £10m.

The only men in the list's top ten are Craig David and Paolo Nutini, who are both placed at joint sixth.
