One Direction To Be Named Britain's Wealthiest Boyband With £25 Million Earnings

The 'What Makes You beautiful' singers have accumulated around £5 million each since they started in 2010.

One Direction are set to be named among Britain's most wealthy musicians and the top earning boyband.

The Sun claims that the five-piece have a collective earning of £25 million since rising to fame on The X Factor in 2010 and their superstar sixed earnings will be published in The Sunday Times' annual rich list later this month.

Their individual wealth has reportedly been sourced at around £5 million each as they make it into the musician's under 30 list.

They've had two globally dominating albums, are in the middle of a huge world tour and will release their 3D concert movie this august.

The Sunday Times will also reportedly name the band in their most charitable pop stars list following the success of Comic Relief single 'One Way Or Another'.

Adele topped last year's list with an estimated wealth of £20 million with the likes of Cheryl Cole, Jessie J and JLS also featuring in the top ten.

Meanwhile, the group were forced to deny claims this week that bandmate Harry Styles was working on a solo album, revealing the studio sessions were for One Direction's third album.
