Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson & Rupert Grint

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe is Britain's richest "young celebrity", according to a survey conducted by Heat magazine.

Although Radcliffe – whose net worth is estimated at £56.18m – is second on Heat's list, only the combined value of the four-strong band One Direction (£59.33m) outdoes him, making Radcliffe the highest placed individual.

The other high entries on Heat's Rich List – confined to those under 30 – are also dominated by film actors. Radcliffe's Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are at 5th and 7th respectively, with £27.93m and £24.08m. Twilight star Robert Pattinson is just behind Radcliffe with £44.16m, and Keira Knightley is the highest placed woman, with £37.28m at number 4.

Music figures Adele (£27.54m, number 6), Calvin Harris (£22.2m, number 8), Cheryl Cole (£15.5m, number 9) and Leona Lewis (£14.45m) fill out the rest of the top 10.
