Zayn Malik may have left the band this year, but One Direction have held onto their position at the top of Britain's Under-30s Rich List.

The group - comprising Niall Horan, 22, Liam Payne, 22, Harry Styles, 21 and Louis Tomlinson, 23 - take the title for the third year running in Heat magazine's annual 30 under-30 chart.

They amassed a combined fortune of an estimated £82.08 million, up £4.56 million from last year.

Daniel Radcliffe, Robert Pattinson and Adele were among the other contenders trailing the four-piece, whose hits this year include Drag Me Down and Perfect from their upcoming fifth album Made In The A.M.

Malik made his solo debut on the list in eighth position with estimated individual earnings of around £20.52 million.

The 22-year-old left One Direction in March and announced he has signed a solo record deal with RCA Records in July.

Model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult, comedian Kevin Bridges, Ellie Goulding and Jack Whitehall are other new entries on the list, which appears in this week's issue of Heat.
