"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe is the youngest and richest entertainer in the UK.

According to the Independent, Radcliffe's farewell appearance as the boy wizard in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" and the success of his latest film "The Woman In Black" helped add £6 million to the £48 million in career earnings previously amassed by the 22 year old actor. The Sunday Times reports Radcliffe is sitting on a personal fortune to the tune of £54 million, up from £48 million in 2011.

The list of the top earners was compiled by Philip Beresford, the leading authority on British wealth. It is interesting to note that a majority of the high-grossers in Britain are the entertainers, rather than the athletes. Robert Pattinson, the star of the "Twilight" series of films, came second with £40 million.

Meanwhile, Adele topped the list of the richest Young Musicians, amassing an incredible £20 million fortune - an increase of £14 million on her earnings last year, according to Marie Claire. Adele's album "21" sold more than 10 million copies last year.

Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua are each worth £12 million, while the newest entrant, Jessie J, has an estimated £5 million.

Keira Knightley was named at the top of the models list, with an annual income of £30 million, with Kiera Chaplin and Emma Watson following her.
