New entry! All that modelling made her a few bob, and her acting jobs include Snow White And The Huntsman and Doctor Who.
Down 3. Rockferry was huge. Endlessly wasn’t. We’re all still waiting for that difficult third album…
Re-entry! We’d almost forgotten about Paolo, but his album Caustic Love was a big hit – and brought him back on to the list.
Re-entry! He may be best known for Billy Elliot still, but he also made King Kong, Tintin, and just signed up for the Fantastic Four reboot.
Down 1. Most of her money comes from her first two albums.
New entry! There’s a lot of money in banjos, beards and fiddly-de-dee. And Marcus Mumford has even married Carey Mulligan. (Spoiler: she’s richer than him – at Number 16)
New entry! The founder (and chief presenter) of urban music channel sb.tv, Jamal’s fortune is predicated on the estimated value of his expanding media empire.
Up 7. They split up ages ago, but they didn’t really, did they? They kept touring for ages.
Up 2. He’s had a quiet year, but That Songs For Me… album in 2008 was huge.
New entry! Most of that money comes from modelling and being the face of, for example, Tom Ford’s fragrance, but she also acts. Look out for the forthcoming London Fields and Pan.
Up 3. Her peak earning years may be behind her (Clash Of The Titans and Prince Of Persia were the major pay days) but there’s plenty of new work in the pipeline.
Up 3. Not been too busy lately, but she does write songs for Little Mix.
Up 3. Clack your heels rhythmically, because Nadine has just finished appearing as the goddess Erin in Michael Flatley’s Lord Of The Dance: Dangerous Games in the West End.
Up 3. Nice quiet year for Flo, though she’s due to make her movie debut next year in Terrence Malick’s as-yet-untitled new film.
Up 3. The A-list promise of The Great Gatsby has so far only translated into respectable, low-key dramas. Fair enough, it’s not all about money.
Up 1. Expect his star to rise next year when The Avengers 2 comes out…
Up 1. To be fair, she made most of this money before she could even vote, but she still put out two EPs this year.
Up 1. Joss claims she spent most of her fortune buying out her record contract. Still had a world tour this year, though, to keep body and (blue-eyed) soul together.
Up 5. She’s got five fragrances, don’t you know. Five ways to smell like Coleen!
Non-mover. Her sixth studio album, Ketevan (that’s her real name, BTW), was top ten across Europe. And your dad totally fancies her.
Up 3. Mr Arctic and his Monkey pals chugged through 78 arena dates around the world this year.
Up 1. Her Christmas album sold a respectable few hundred thousand copies this year, but she used to sell millions. Then more millions.
Down 1. Still hasn’t managed to grasp that slippery pole out of the Potter swamp like Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe, but he seems happy. Why wouldn’t he be? He owns an ice cream van.
Up 1. He made a fortune from his residency at Hakkasan in Vegas (plus other lucrative gigs), but he split up with Rita Ora. Swings and roundabouts…
Down 1. What with The Bling Ring and Noah, and her burgeoning side-career as a women’s rights campaigner, Emma seems to have done even better than Dan-Rad at shaking off Harry Potter.
Non-mover. Can you see him as anything other than a sexually-repressed vampire, though? He’s trying really, really, hard, but…
Non-mover. Coming soon: Horns, in which he has a pair of horns, and Frankenstein, in which he plays Igor the hunchback. Not that he’s trying to transform our perception of him or anything.
Non-mover. Not to be crude, but they’ve been selling truckloads of records and touring enormodromes around the world since their balls dropped. That kind of thing will make you very, very rich.
Up 1. God, she’s good, isn’t she? Isn’t she though? She’s just really GOOD.
Non-mover. It’s worth remembering that despite only being 29, Keira has made 28 films, including three extremely lucrative Pirates Of The Caribbean ones.
It must be great being really, really rich. You can get driven around in cars of an inappropriately bright colour and eat all the Toffos you want. Every year heat’s panel of industry experts analyses the comings, goings, wheelings and dealings of the wealthiest British entertainers under the age of 30. They estimate the value of every movie deal, TV show, record sale and cereal endorsement and come up with the Rich List – the most accurate assessment of celebrity earnings you can get. You can see the results in the gallery below.
But before that, why not pop over here for the chance to win a grand with our Rich List safecracking competition?
…And here's the science bit
All the celebrities are 30 or under at the time of publication; to qualify for the list, they must make a significant proportion of their money in the entertainment industry (so entrepreneurs don’t usually count, inheritances don’t count, and models generally have to do a bit of acting on the side). The Rich List is an estimate of earnings, not total wealth - they could have blown the lot on candy floss and Tizer for all we know, and the tax man will have tried, at least, to take 50% of their income.

Lucie Cave is Editor-In-Chief of heat and has spent longer than she would like to admit delving into celebrities’ business. Which makes her very well qualified to discuss how much more money than the rest of us they’ve been making in all that time.
