Doncaster pop sensation Louis Tomlinson and his bandmates have topped a list of the richest people under 30.

The group reportedly earned almost £12m each last year, knocking Daniel Radcliffe off the top of the list of rich young stars.

The band – made up of Bessacarr’s Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne are worth an estimated £59.33 million.

They were thrown together on TV talent contest X Factor and, although they failed to win the show, have since gone on to find worldwide fame.

The band, currently touring Australia, quickly made history, becoming the first UK group to debut at number one on the US Billboard chart with their album Up All Night.

And One Direction could be set to add to their millions after it was reported they were the bookies’ favourites to provide England’s official World Cup 2014 song.

A panel of industry experts analysed stars’ financial deals to work out how much each was worth in order to compile the list.
