A 22-year-old actor has clung on to his top spot this year, topping Heat magazine's richest under 30s list with earnings reaching a cool £52m.

Actress Keira Knightley joined the elite top five of most minted entertainers with £30.8million, while Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson moved up to third position with £24.9million.

Cheryl Cole was the list's biggest mover, jumping to seventh place, with an estimate fortune of £11.4million. Despite being unceremonially sacked from The X Factor USA, Cole's earnings were bumped up by her deals with cosmetic giant L'Oreal and de Grisogno jewellery.

She still did a lot better compared to her Girls Aloud bandmates, the highest of which was Kimberley Walsh at 24 with only £5.3m, half as much as Cheryl.

Face from the past Craig David managed to make the top 10, despite not having released any new material for years, still dining out on the success of his early noughties career.

But who nabbed the top spot of Britain's most eligible entertainer? Find out below...
