Sir Elton John was the most charitable celebrity in the UK last year.

The Sunday Times Giving List published yesterday (April 17) revealed that the 'Tiny Dancer' star gave away £26.8 million ($38 million) in the last 12 months.

Most of his donations were given to his AIDS foundations in the UK and the US.

John's annual Oscars party in February for example raised $6.2 million (£4.4 million).

Author JK Rowling came second on the list with donations of £10.3 million ($14.6 million), with her charities Lumos Foundation and Volant Charitable Trust the main benificiaries.

Other music acts who featured on the list included Coldplay, One Direction and Queen.
