Ed, 30, boasts the most-streamed single of all time with ‘Shape of You’, as well as the highest-grossing tour of all time.

And the chart-topping star recently released his highly-anticipated new album, ‘=’.

Ed tops the list ahead of Harry Styles, who first found fame as part of One Direction and has subsequently enjoyed success as a solo artist.

The 27-year-old singer – whose overall worth is estimated to be £80 million (R1.6 billion) – has also starred in ‘Dunkirk’ and the new Marvel movie ‘Eternals’.

Elsewhere, Little Mix are in third place on the list, with an estimated worth of £66.7 million (R1.3 billion).

The girl group – who were formed on ‘The X Factor’ in 2011 – lost Jesy Nelson as a band member in December last year, when she admitted that being in Little Mix had “taken a toll on [her] mental health”.

Fourth position in the list is occupied by Niall Horan, whose estimated worth is £57.5 million (R1.2 billion), and fifth place is occupied by model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, who is thought to be worth £52 million (R1 billion).

Meanwhile, cyclist Laura Kenny has been named as the richest British sportswomen, according to heat magazine’s Rich List 2021.
