Our favourite music stars have been making their mark, as they climb up the Sunday Times Rich List 2010
The Sunday Times Rich List 2010 was published yesterday, and Charlotte Church, Cheryl Cole and Leona Lewis all topped the music category.
The bevy of British beauties have done especially well over the last year, and all rated highly in the list of Young Music Millionaires under 30.
Charlotte Church – who is currently starring as a judge on BBC show Over the Rainbow – came top of the list, raking in a whopping £11 million.
But Ms Church had to share the top spot with lovely Leona Lewis, who increased her earnings by a cool £3 million in the last year, and raced up the list from number six to number three.
But it’s X Factor favourite Cheryl Cole who has come by far the most way in the last year, bolstering her personal wealth by 150% and taking fourth place on the list.
Together with her X Factor salary, Cheryl’s lucrative advertising deals, TV appearances and solo career have all boosted her income.
Others coming high on the music earnings list included Katie Melua, Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse.
