Adele Tops Sunday Times Young Music Rich List As One Direction Earn £5m Each

The five members of One Direction have racked up a £5 million fortune each in the last year, and combined earnings of £25m.

Harry Styles and co, who were put together on 'The X Factor', stormed the United States in 2012 with their debut album 'Up All Night'.
