One Direction are set to be named as the UK’s wealthiest boy band.

Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik are reportedly worth £25million.

The lads have amassed a £5million fortune each since the band was formed in 2010, according to the new Sunday Times Rich List.

Their personal wealth has moved all five boys into the list of music millionaires who are under 30.

The former X Factor stars have topped the charts in 16 countries with their debut album Up All Night.

The lads’ follow-up album, Take Me Home, made them first act in two decades to have two of the year’s best-selling albums.

Take Me Home sold over three million copies and in 2012 they played 60 sold-out shows.

The boys will also feature in a second Rich List league table for leading charity donors.

Their Comic Relief single One Way or Another topped the charts in 60 countries with 330,000 copies sold in the UK.

The 25th anniversary edition of The Sunday Times Rich List is out in April.
