Adele's chart-topping success has propelled her into a new top 10 - of the richest young music stars.

The Someone Like You singer is the highest new entry in a new list of the richest British and Irish music stars under the age of 30.

Authors of the report, which is part of the Sunday Times Rich List to be published this weekend, estimate she is worth £6 million.

The astonishing leap in fortunes comes just three months after her performance at the Brit Awards in February, which gave her a new flush of fame.

Days later she stormed to number one in the album chart and has now spent 13 weeks at the top with her second album, 21.

Her debut release 19 is currently at number two.

Singer Katherine Jenkins is the wealthiest star in the young music millionaire list, ousting last year's number one Charlotte Church.

Katherine is said to be worth £13 million, up £2 million on the previous year, while Charlotte is now reckoned to be valued at £8 million, slipping to joint sixth place with Craig David.

Among the runner-ups in the list is Cheryl Cole, whose fortune is believed to have grown by £2 million in the past year.

She shares second spot with both Leona Lewis and Katie Melua.
