Pop band Little Mix have made Heat Magazine's list of the 30 richest celebrities under 30 year old.
The four piece moves from tenth place to sixth place with £48 million.
The figure is partly thanks to high profile commercial endorsements - everything from fashion dolls to dry shampoo - as well as chart success and touring. The girls have just released Woman Like Me, performing it live on The X Factor.
Little Mix is made up of Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards from South Shields, and their bandmates Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock.
