The 'Little Things' hitmakers -- comprising Louis Tomlinson, 23, Niall Horan, 21, Zayn Malik, 21, Harry Styles, 20, and 21-year-old Liam Payne -- have retained the top spot in heat magazine's annual list thanks to endeavours such as selling their name and image rights to Coles supermarkets in Australia, releasing two fragrances, embarking on a world tour and selling four million copies of their latest album Midnight Memories, reported Contactmusic.

Second place on the list was 'Harry Potter' star Daniel Radcliffe with an estimated fortune of 63.5 million pounds, while his former wizarding co-star Robert Pattinson took third place with estimated earnings of 51.4 million pounds.

The top 10 also featured two more 'Harry Potter' stars, 24-year-old Emma Watson, who was ranked sixth with a fortune of 31.66 million pounds and eighth placed Rupert Grint with 27.33 million pounds.
